Oh oh, sometimes I like to draw things but I'm terrible at coloring.

Looking back on this I totally made the leg disproportionate.

I'm a big tokay lover. Walked around with one on my shoulder at the recent show. Thanks for the love. :)

Coloring looks fine to me, though theres no shadow parts in it.
(Contrast in colors)

Nice drawing ^^

Now that I examine this, I have decided to redo it, and make it even better by placing colors where they should be! Also, if you want to view the leg outlines and stuff, you will have to click the picture.

My latest piece. I hope to be doing many more reptiles, they are a fantastic way to practice texture. This took about 4-5 hours.

My first random not planned out painting, and my first using a canvas, and easel :P Forgive the flaws
The canvas is a little larger than a postcard, very fun to do. I definitely LOVE both the easel and the canvas!!

Thanks! I'm really proud of this because I've been doing a lot of practice just on sketch book paper and tracing out the animal I want to paint...this was all done freehand...I did look up a picture just to get an idea of pattern and how the feet are, but this was all me :)
