Sleeping Lion Cub WIP - 02 Silent Aution Piece

Hi All,

Here's an update of the piece I'm doing for the Colored Pencil Society of America silent auction.

There's not a whole lot to say about the piece.  It's done in 100% colored pencil on Ampersand's Pastelbord.

I'm close to being done so it looks like I will be finished with this piece in time.... Phew, LOL.  So far I'm happy with the piece.... of course I just love the subject matter, this little guy is so darn cute sleeping with one eye half open.  As usual I'm having a problem with coming up with a title, if any of you have a suggest it would be greatly appreciated.

If you should have any comments or questions just let me know and above all..... Keep Scribbling.

Sleeping Lion Cub WIP - 01 Silent Aution Piece

Hi All,

I thought I would post the piece I am creating for the Colored Pencil Society of America Silent Auction. 

This piece is done on white Pastelboard and is 6" x 12" and done with 100% colored pencils.

Here is the first update of the little lion.  If you have any questions or comments, don't hesitate to speak up.

So far I'm using some new pencils by Jerry's Artarama called SOHO and prismacolor.

If you are wondering at what stage the Ostrich is at.... I had to put that one on the back burner in order to get this piece done in time for the Silent Auction.  This piece has to be done within a month, I will be posting more updates as I progress.

Keep Scribbling, Gemma

Ostrich - WIP04

Hi All,

Here's another update on the Ostrich.  I'm now working on the feathers under his chin and along his left side so, they still need some work.

As I mentioned before I may have to take a break on this guy soon because as soon as I get the support I ordered for my CPSA Silent Auction piece I will start working on it.

I will post my progress on the Silent Auction piece and continue to post any progress on this piece as well.

I'm having fun creating this guy... he just cracks me up every time I see him.  I sure hope I can express the feeling I am trying to get with him.

He's 16" x 16", on UArt and 100% Colored Pencil.  As mentioned before.... I'm using the Icarus heated board to blend the colored pencil.  What a great tool that board can be.... I just love!!

If you have any questions or comments let me know.  Don't forget... Keep Scribbling!!
