The college where I work has a panther as the mascot. I’m working on a cartoony version, inspired by Disney style. I’ll have to go back to the drawing board for a bit because I’ve been asked to use the black version and making it look less young.
The college where I work has a panther as the mascot. We don’t yet have a “cute” version of a panther for T-shirts and other swag. So I’m taking a stab at it, using a mountain lion cub as a model. I did these sketches during a meeting that was making me upset, and drawing these helped keep me calm.
For Mother’s Day, all I wanted was to go to the Sacramento Zoo and draw animals. I used a technique I learned 14 years ago from a workshop at the same zoo given by artist Robert Dvorak. I started with a Bic Grip gel pen (black fine point). Then I used a waterbrush to wash the water-soluble ink into the dark or shaded areas. I really like this effect.

Tonight, I enjoyed two and a half hours of figure drawing at Verge Center for the Arts. The model gave us a series of 2-minute, 5-minute, 10-minute, and finally 20-minute poses. I did most of these with a 6B graphite pencil, but also tried out an orange colored pencil and a couple of Micron pens.
Theo and I sat down to draw together tonight. He selected the theme of “robot”. Vlady joined in. Here are our three very different interpretations of robots: mine, Theo’s and Vlady’s.
I began with a rough sketch in orange Prismacolor. Then I drew the major contours in Micron black brush pen. Finally, I drew the fine contours and shading with a 03 black Micron pen. This one took a couple of hours. 6”x6”. People Drawing People kourse at @sketchbookskool, model found on the @sktchyapp.
In this video, I am working on the shading with hatching lines:
Inspired by artist Felix Scheinberger, I began with a rough sketch in orange Prismacolor. Then I drew the major contours in Tombow Fudenosuke black ink pen.

Let’s Draw Davis hosted a special sketch event at Sudwerk Brewery tonight. The restaurant closed three years ago, but they still serve beer and have an outdoor seating area with canopies.
