It's Been Awhile

Hello all,

I haven't posted anything in a long while now, so this post is basicly just to let you all know that I'm still here.
My art work has been pretty slow lately.
With the permission of a couple of people I would like to post my two latest drawings... So those may be up soon.
I've also done a few little sketchs over the past couple months, which I may post tomorrow.

Oh and I have added some info on my commmission work in the sidebar for those that may be interested.

Okay ya'll have a great rest of the week. Later. (:

Commission Work

I wanted to let everybody know that I'm doing commission art work... I do graphite pencil portraits of people such as you or your kids and I can also do animals if you would like me to draw a portrait of you pet or anything like that.
Prices will depend on the size you would like and the number of subjects in the portrait.
If you are interested please comment or email me at

Designing a Header

Okay so I wanted to draw a cool picture to put on the header of this blog... but I wasn't sure of what I wanted to draw, and so I was looking through some pictures I have and I saw a picture of an assassin jumping at his target, then it hit me... I could replace his knife with a pencil and replace his target with an easel... and so that is what I decided to do.
And now after around 6 hrs I've finished the outline.
It should be finished soon... but till then here's a preview.

Designing My Uncle's Tattoo

This is my current project...
My uncle called some time last month and ask me if I would do him a favor and I say okay and he says he wants me to design him a tattoo of a lion pride to go across his back and that he wants each lion to represent him and his wife and each one of his kids...
So I did lots of searching the web and gathering pictures of lions and after hours of looking for good lion pictures I finally got what I needed...
So then I got all the lions arranged how I liked and thought it didn't look too bad.
So now I have finished the outline and I'm starting on the shading and detail and so this is what I have done so far...

2008 Drawings

2008 drawings (old to new)

2007 Drawings

Here are some of my drawings from back in 2007 (old to new)

My first post

Ok well first off my name is Grady and I'm 17 years old (18 in October) and I'm starting this blog to share my work with others and to learn from others and I would love to get comments from anyone with advice or questions. So please comment :)

I've always enjoyed drawing, when I was a lot younger I would get How To Draw books and draw step by step, then I started skipping to the last step and just drawing from looking at the last step... then I sorta just stopped drawing when I was around 10 I guess, and just kinda forgot about it for awhile.
So some time in mid 2007 I got back into it, drawing things like cartoons and other simple things and I liked the result, so then I tried drawing real people from photos, and I thought I did pretty okay, and so I've been drawing people and pretty much anything else that interests me ever since and I think I've come a long way.

I will be putting up scanned images of my drawings soon...
