Trying to draw again

I bought a copy of this book, from Amazon I am ever hopeful that I will miraculously be able to draw once I get my hands on a new book.  Hahaha

I disregarded the instructions in the first chapter and attempted to draw my own dogs instead.  Here are two quick sketches (that took me all day to do!).  I think I have captured the curly scruffy essence of Murphy and hopefully some of the delightful hairyness of Kizzie Whizz.





He is white, curly, scruffy, with most of his beady black eyes covered by curls and he has an adorable little brown nose.








Kizzie is milk chocolate coloured but has a blonde face.  She has a beautiful heart shaped nose.  A very scruffy dood, with long hair on her face and ears and curls in places.









I am going back to the book now and will follow the instructions this time.  Cats though, I have never looked at cats, except when they are running away from one or the other of my dogs.  I have no idea what I think they look like :)

I think you did good. If the book helps, let me know. I might try it. I've always been frustrated at not being able to draw.

Wendy, you did just fine! I can see Murphy in that sketch, and what a good job on the nostrils/nose of Kizzie especially! It'll be fun to see your growh after reading the directions!
