Pencil Drawings

These are my pencil drawings.  It is easier for me to use pencil over paints.  Small kids and paint don't go well together. :)  If I am drawing one individual it take between 4 to 6 hours to draw.  The more detailed the picture the longer it will take of course. 

What a cute little boy I have!
if you notice the camera shadow around his face, I didn't want to draw that in.  I wanted it to look more natural. 

This handsome fellow is my cousin, Kirt, and his son, Ethan.  Kirt passed away April 21st 2008.  His wonderful wife has since remarried to a wonderful man Cameron. Cameron's wife, Aaron, passed away about the same time as Kirt. So Tiffany (Kirt's wife) came to me and asked if I could draw Kirt and Ethan, and Aaron and each one of her sons for them for a Christmas gift!  What an honor it has been to draw them.

Aaron and Levi
Thanks Tiffany for giving me this opportunity :)
We love you Kirt and Aaron and miss you :)

My Boys.  One good thing about drawing someone is you can change the picture to be the way you want it to look.  My husband didn't shave the day my good friend took this picture, so I gave him a shave in the drawing.  Doesn't he look better! :)  If you like the photo, then click on the link to the side; Little Gems Photography


This cute little girl is my daughter, I've always loved it when babies wear glasses :)

 This drawing is from a book, I think it's called The Snow Princess.  I love the artwork and the character so much I had to draw her. 

 This is one of my wedding gifts. 

This is a character in a book I recently read.

My oldest little girl!

 This is one I drew in High School.  It's always been one of my favorites.

 Another one of my wedding gifts.

My Christmas gift to my sister-in-law

I love how you put the actual picture after the pencil drawing so we can see how detail oriented you really are. You are amazing!It's hard to tell which is the picture and which is the drawing...you are that good!
