Picture Saturday-- Doodles and sketches and stuff

It's been a long time since a Picture Saturday has made an appearance, hasn't it? Oh well. I got busy. *grin*

I know that I have been terrible about commenting and blogging.... and I apologize. (If you missed my blog that is, if you don't care one way or another, I retract my apology.)

I do have reasons for the being so lax, and mostly it's just that the weather finally, FINALLY warmed up and it's actually starting to feel like summer around here. (The last couple of weeks have been ridiculously cold... like getting down to the 30s at night. Which is cold in June.) So now that it's decided to bring on some "almost July" weather, I've been spending as much time as possible outside and ignoring my computer in the meantime.

I'm so glad it's summer, you guys. I love being warm.

Anyhow, I've been sketching and drawing a lot lately, and I've decided to share a few. I just noticed that the pictures all have the date on them. GRRRRRRRRRRRR. (yes, I use a camera and not a scanner. Our scanner tends to really wash out my drawings.) But I'm too lazy too redo so you'll just have to ignore that.

1.) The Dragon Slippers picture I'm working on right now. I'm wanting to color it in soon, so it's not done, but I rather fancy it. (If you haven't read that book, you really should. It's quite nice. The author does a cool twist on dragons' hoards. )


2.) The random-Scottish-girl-standing-on-a-cliff sketch I did a few days ago.













3.) The Rapunzel sketch I drew a few days before the random-girl-on-cliff one.

4.) The one I don't really care for.... That girl's head is so bulbous and huge compared to her body.


5.) The one I'm absurdly fond of that I mostly did last night and finished today:

Call me weird, but I really want the outfit she's wearing. And I quite like her hair.

6.) The BASEBALL PLAYER!!!! Kay, I love baseball. And so I drew a batter. And he looks off-balance in this picture, but in real life he looks way better, I swear.

8.) The St. Teresa  of Avila quote that I love. (I already did it once before, but I love it so much, it had to be redone.)

And that's that. Sorry I'm not as peppy as I usually am, but I'm not really in the mood for peppy right now.

           Anyway, what do you think? Which one's your favorite?

                               God bless, guys.

    1. Thanks, Mime. :D I did like her hair, which is probably the only reason I posted that picture. Haha!

  2. I loooove the girl holding the book (with the fairy tale quote). It SO looks like she's being blown by the wind. Amazing. Plus her hair is rather Merida-ish and that I adore.

    1. Thank you!!! I like her too. I love drawing windy pictures. She looked a little wistful, so I had to look around for a pretty quote.

      YES, YES, YES!!!!!!!!!! I was going for the curly girl look and thank you for mentioning it. :D

  4. I love your drawings so much. You're so good at capturing motion...and they all have so much character...

    My favourite is probably the "love gives you a fairytale" one. Although the Scottish girl on a cliff is really close. The billowing fabric and hair are so cool.

    1. Awwwwwwww, thank you so much, Clair. It really does mean a lot when you say nice things since you're so good yourself. :D

      I love that quote, so that picture is definitely one of my favorites. I get a little carried away with billowing fabric and hair. I'm like, "MORE! MORE! MOORREEEEE!" Which isn't always a good think though. lol. :D

  6. Dammit Treskie, STOP BEING TALENTED! You make the rest of us want to go die in holes...I'm joking (mostly). Great post - I do love the first one, but also number 5 is also beautiful, and the baseball player is fantastic. You are very, very good at doing fabric and suchlike, with the all the folds etc...and hair. You are darned good at doing hair. Anyway, I wanted to let you know that I've nominated you for the Eleven Things Tag! Sometimes I feel like all I ever do is throw awards at you - if you want me to stop, just say the word! - but I can't help it! :L

    1. Hahahaha! Thanks loads, Emily. But don't go die in a hole, your colors are way better than mine, and I get jealous of that. lol.

      I have my sister to thank for teaching me how to do fabric, she's awesome with that. :) I love drawing hair, so I taught myself that. lol.

      Ummmmm.... THANK you for the tag.... but I'll see if I can do it soon. I'm a little overwhelmed with tags right now. I always forget to do them. haha!

  7. Purteh! I don't know, they're all nice. It's so funny, because a lot of the way you draw reminds me of MY drawings. But your faces are DEFINITELY your faces... there is no way I could draw a face like that. :) (And if that came off as a bit of a burn, I apologize. It was meant to be a compliment. ;)

    I think yon baseball player is my fave. Just sayin'.

  8. Ooh, they're all so great! Personally, I like the Rapunzel one a bit more than all the others. But #5 I like a lot too--the quote, the shading, everything. You have a true gift :).
