ATC: Turtle Portrait

2.5" x 3.5" colored pencil

2.5" x 3.5" colored pencil

I needed to draw a turtle artist trading card for a trading partner last week.  I looked through some pictures I had taken at the zoo and came up with this guy.  I like the expression on this face.  What a grumpagus, if that’s a word.  If not I’ve just made it one.

I’m planning more regular posts for August.   I’ve finished a large stack of artist trading card requests and now I can get back to my daily drawing.  I’ve noticed that my drawing has become so tight and careful lately.  I want to try a few different things to get the fun back into my drawing practice.  Hopefully they will pass muster for posting.

Thanks for stopping by.   I always love to read your comments.
