I just updated my Etsy shop with another product: The Hamster, pencil drawing. I like drawing animals like this. Fur is an interesting topic, quite challenging to draw but at the same time highly rewarding if you manage to place the highlights and shadows right.
As you can see, I’m offering this print in both vertical and horizontal orientation. Quite convenient, if I may say so myself. Which one would you choose?
During May, I’ve been working on two rather big projects. One of them is a gouache painting on watercolour paper, featuring two sea turtles; the other is a pencil drawing of a honeybee. Both have now been added to my portfolio.
I’m very happy with what this month’s work resulted in. Now I’m quite curious to see what the future holds… Next update, I hope, will include a fox illustration and perhaps a pencil drawing of a cute little hamster, among some other work.
Now it’s finally finished, signed and uploaded to Etsy – my lovely little honeybee drawing. I really enjoyed drawing this fellow: especially the rich blacks on the legs and the eye. For this piece I used an HB mechanical pencil, a blending stump and an eraser. It took me just above five hours to complete.
If you like this drawing, you should check it out on Etsy where A5 prints in high quality are available for purchase. Shipping is free, as with all of my art prints.
Have a lovely week: I’ll see you in the next post. Cheers!
