Re: Requests thread


Hi everybody, and a big thank you for suggesting that I have my own section on Catpages

I thought I would do a post detailing out how this is all going to work and the sort of photos that I require.

For anybody who has already asked me for a drawing please see the thread titled members requests so far, if you are not on the list please post in the requests thread your request together with the photo you would like me to draw and I will add you to the list.

To give some newbies ideas of the type of photo that I require here is a photo that would not be very good for a drawing as it isn't very clear and quite blurred. If you supply a blurry photo the best you will get is a blurry drawing



Below is the sort of photo I would prefer


Although this photo is perhaps a little bit too bright it is nice and clear and I can always adjust the colour of eyes with a different photo.

I work mainly in coloured pencils, past pencil work examples are below

COLOURED PENCIL WORK






Of course the gorgeous Mitten







I also can do paintings in pastels

EXAMPLE OF PASTEL PAINTINGS





The pastels are a lot quicker to work with than the pencils, if you would prefer me to do a drawing in pastels or pencils please let me know in your requests.

ADJUSTMENT TO ORIGINAL PHOTOS

If there is something you do not want me to draw or want me to alter from the original photo please let me know and I will try and make these adjustments.

Re: Requests thread


Ok this is the list of members who have requested drawings, I have not specified against each name the number of drawings as I don't think that is necessary.

Fran
Natalie
Irena
Jane
Moli
Mags
Brenda (Kim)
Donna
Naomi
Elaine
Luke
Lianna
Sue
Kay
Eileen
Karen

I also have some original photos from Cathy which I am going to do a couple of drawings from, these I will scan in to get the correct size and then I will work from the original photos for the details

If there is anybody who doesn't appear on the list, please post up your requests in the "requests thread" and I will add you to the list

Re: Requests thread


Emma could you please add me to your list. I would love to make a donation for one of your fantastic drawings (especially one of my fantastic cats lol).I'm in no rush and if for any reason in the future you're not able to do it I will totally understand. Not sure which pic to post so if its okay may post 3 and let you pick which is most suitable or preferable to draw. Where do I add my pics, here?
