Loving Lambeth (Featuring a guest artist!)

Hey! I’ve got a special treat for you today. My guest artist is Cerulean Blue, somebody who I’ve shared many drawing adventures with, going back to the exercises from the Betty Edwards book. We both wanted to draw her little toy lamb, much beloved and very loving.

First, here’s my version. I like what I did with shadow and the pointillism technique for Lambeth’s wool.

Cerulean Blue said she found the feet and their shadowing turned out very well in my drawing, suggesting them as solid objects in 3D space.

And here’s Cerulean Blue’s version, which also has some great shadow work, along with nice hatching and just a little bit of color detail!

And here’s a reference photo of Lambeth:

What else can we learn by looking at the same thing from different perspectives?
