 :clap: :clap: :clap:  A great job on the squirrel Barry.  Your shading is excellent and the feet and hands look good.  I think you are doing so well with your drawings.

You are coming along in leaps and bounds with your drawing now, I think that freehand drawing is a difficult one, I remember ending up with only half a pencil by the end of mine. Your chipmunk turned out well. :clap:

Barry,

Great job on the little critter.

Not sure if that is a tail, or lots of hair on the floor to the left of the picture.

Great work Barry, I'm thinking this little fellow is a footballer.... take a look at his shoulder, if you smooth that area down a bit he will loose the shoulder pads  ;)

great job Barry :clap: :clap: :clap:
what you must just be careful of when drawing animals is to not start shading, the hair must be done with less or more flicks in order to get the different tonal values - don't worry, I also made the same mistake when I first did the course way back when (I still remember Dennis moaning at me for shading instead of flicking and me thinking to myself, but shading is easier ;D )

Thanks everyone for the feedback. I too thought something wrong with his shoulder, but did not notice it until after I uploaded it. I was ready to call him the hunchback of PB!

Nolan I did indeed start to shade in some areas for speed sake, I'll watch for that in the future.

Here is a revised version with the tail, neck and shoulder re-worked. I think it is much better drawing with your suggestions, thanks again.

Finally here is the horse. There is a message stating that it needs approval. Approval for what?

What is the code to flip or rotate the picture? I've deleted the image, tried img flip and rotateangle codes.

Again, your c&c are greatly apprciated. i can't believe I'm almost through with the class! One week left. What a difference from the tree Nolan had ya draw at the beginning.

 :clap: :clap: :clap: Barry, you have done exceptionally well with your drawing and I can feel that you are amazed at yourself.  Let me tell you, it gets even better when you continue to do other drawing lessons as Nolan is an excellent tutor.  I have learned so much.  I would highly recommend the "Dog Drawing Course" especially if you love animals. I had the time of my life during the course, as did so many others who were doing it at the same time. We still talk/write about it.  Anyway, it is lovely seeing your progress, keep it coming.

Thanks Patricia and Jill, along with everyone else on the previous drawings, the encourgement means a lot.

I am indeed beginning to think this is fun. At first it was a curiosity thing  founded on a long past desire. However, once I started seeing the results I was starting to pull away due to fear of the time commitment, and the thought of "just what I need, another hobby!"  Yet the classes do make learning straight forward, easy and fun, so I do plan on continuing and see where it leads me.
