Doodle of the Week #4

This week’s doodle is a little something I whipped up with my markers one day.  These words are definitely antonyms!  In fact they contrast so much that they should not be together; but I drew them together anyway.  Here is the doodle:

The markers gave the affect that the words describe.  For “Hot” I drew orange letters with red heat drops falling and for “Cold” I drew blue letters with ice on top.  Which word do you like better?  Please comment and let me know!


A Taste of Paris…

A Taste of Paris?; not literally…but it is a main landmark of Paris, France. Can you guess what it is? If you guessed the Eiffel Tower then you are correct! A couple of days ago I was wondering what I should draw and an idea popped into my head.  Why not draw a tall building structure?  So I made up my mind; I was going to draw the Eiffel Tower.  The Eiffel Tower is a very detailed and complex building. With much shading and a lot of time I finally got an effect that I liked. I used my lightest pencil (HB) all the way down to my darkest pencil (6B). When I finally completed this my hand was burning! It definitely took time to do; or at least it seemed so because I did it all in one day.

As you can see the picture is drawn at a slight bottom-view angle.  This effect gives the illusion that you are underneath the Tower and looking upward to the top.  The Eiffel Tower also has some great history so you should read about it online.  Check out this link:

A comment that takes 10 seconds to write could brighten my day!  Please take the time to comment and give me your thoughts about it.

Veggietale Christmas Picture Preview

This is a Veggie Tales Christmas Character that will be featured in my special “Veggie Christmas” picture…  this is just a preview of one of the characters.

St. Nicholas


I always enjoy drawing these types of pictures.  It really makes me feel good to have accomplished something like making these characters look so real…I hope enjoy them as much as I enjoyed drawing them.  If you are not familiar with the show “Veggietales”  than you need to watch the video below…  in this video you will see some of the characters in my drawing (although I tweaked them a bit).  I just hope one day I will learn to animate drawings like the talented people making this show and many other animators who have made such great movies for us to enjoy.

This is one of my favorites of the Veggietales creations and am so glad I got the opportunity and talent from God to enable me to draw such great drawings…

(I will be posting the full Veggietales Christmas Picture in a couple of days hopefully)


Trees?  Yes well… let me explain.  For a school project I had to buy a photo book and identify and collect 45 leaves!  Well now I am finished with putting the leaves in.  Now I just have one page left… a “definition of a tree” page.  Well I just thought…with my new prismacolor markers and everything I should just draw the word trees on the page that I write the definition of a tree on.  Well… it is looking very good and am glad I decided to do it.  Well I guess you want to see it so here it is…..

I think it is just amazing what you can do with prismacolor markers and a little bit of talent! hehe 🙂

I used:

Pencil – to write the letters and draw the tree branch

Sharpie – to outline the letters and tree branch and some other detail

Thin Permanent Marker- to outline the outline of the letters and some small detail

Grass Green Prismacolor Marker- Leaves and the word “TREE”

Dark Brown and Sienna Brown – Tree Branch

Black Colored Pencil – “Tree” shade effect

Talent – Got that talent for drawing from my Dad
