An Unfinished Sponsor

-So my pencil ran out of graphite. And then I ran out of pencils. Eff.
-If I had been able to finish, I would have made some cool shading patterns all over the back and finished all the sponsors that were on his shirt. The words are scribbles...just wanted to clear that up.

The Pew-ed Perspective

-This one really emphasizes the view from the pew in church. I wish that instead of drawing the pastor, I brought the stained-glass window lower and emphasized that.
-I do like the subtle hint of the window above though.

Holy Cow, Is That a Dog?!

-Please welcome the very first animal to be featured on the Oh Snarf blog. I guess we've got more than one animal in this drawing, but this little pup is the star. Not my most detailed drawing, but I like the eagerness of his pose directed at those guinea pigs.
-Drawn from a picture taken by Joel, featuring the one and only Doug Paddington, on February 23, 2013.

A Pair of Baggy Buns

-Yes, I realize that the title of this post can be misleading but I couldn't resist. Check out the matching buns and baggy sweatshirts. BAM.
-Also, this is my very first self-portrait! I'm glad I got to share the stage with my lil friend on the right.
-Drawn from a picture taken by the lovely Pinky on February 23, 2013.

Stripes, Swirls, and Seashells

-Going with the trend of weird designs and etchings in solid colored clothing in this one. Also the bunch in his hood does not look like a hood...I made it into one of those big seashells on accident.

The Floating Toddler

-I found this picture on Instagram and immediately knew I would draw it (credit to @finn). His precious floaties remind me of swim lessons as a kid. I wish I spent more time on the water reflections.
-Drawn on February 9, 2013.

Daddy's Boy

-I also saw this photo on Instagram and had to draw it (credit to @thomas_k and @wisslaren). I wish I had drawn more of those squiggly trees on the left because the shaded blobs are bothering me...
-Drawn on February 9, 2013.

A Bit of Skeleton Fluff

-So I really love how this guy's hair came out. It looks so soft and fluffy! I wish I could have finished the sketch on the left, but the skeleton will have to do.

The Swinging Tree

-So this guy was swaying back and forth SO MUCH that he was practically swinging. Also the weird pattern on his shirt looks like the rings of age on a tree trunk. That isn't actually what is shirt looked like, but I like it.

The Etchings with a Clip

-One of my favorite artists (Amanda Nedham) makes all these intricate etchings in her large drawings and I love that technique, so I tried to copy it.

The Big Comfy Couch...Chair

-I honestly don't think this chair was enormous in real life, but it seems to take over this drawing for some reason. In other news, I liked the sweater and shirt collar combo.

Shaded Streaks of Plaid

-This one is not my most interesting drawing, but I think the shading on the table is my favorite part. It's the small things, right?

Patterns Galore

-We've got plaid, and stripes, and shading, and checkers, and it just seems like there's a lot going on in this one. I feel okay about that.

An Elegant Twist of Monkey Bread

-So her braid sort of looks like monkey bread...I enjoyed drawing it but seriously, monkey bread. I also really like the relaxed/elegant arm draping that was happening.

The Singing Siblings

-I saw this picture posted by @bethanyrau on Instagram and I had to draw it! I loved the setting and the closeness.
-Drawn sometime around December 22, 2012.

The Leaning Tower of Lines

-I drew this one 1+ years ago so I don't remember much about it, but I like that it was a little rushed and the etchings are pronounced throughout.
-Drawn on November 17, 2011 at Stony Brook University (NY)

Cascading Curls

-I liked the overwhelming presence of her curls. Probably a hassle for her, but they looked cool. 
-I randomly found this drawing that I sketched on November 10, 2011 at Stony Brook University (NY).
