As promised to TexWisGirl, I said I'd post the illustration I did for my design class. We had to work off a black and white photo and recreate it in pencil/ink/wash. I had some complications with the left side as my illustration board as it wasn't taking a wash like it had on the stairs to the right, so I ended up doing more of that side in pencil. Lesson? Don't use old board that was sitting in the cupboard for five years.
Otherwise, I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. The instructor was impressed anyway.

Now, I don't draw enough (or have enough followers) to give drawings away, but Tex does, and her work is fab! Head over to her March giveaway to win one of her beautiful color pencil nature pieces!
...or wait until next month, because I'm sure to win the cardinal this month. ;o)
