Fearless Friday, Mr. Fancy


Let’s have some fun with black and white today





And a touch of red and orange





If you break your subject down by shapes, it is not so overwhelming





Let’s give him some feathers





and a large rooster tail





Continue to add small feather shapes all over the tail and body

and give him some chicken legs and feet





Now let’s dress him up a bit







“Mr. Fancy” 7″x 10″ ink and marker on mixed media paper



Try drawing with shapes, it’s lots of fun!

Be Fearless!

    I love roosters! Thanks for the tutorial. I’m visiting from OMHG Wonderful Wednesday. I really like your creative projects. I signed up for your blog emails, but it signed me up via WordPress.com. Will the emails go to my email associated with WordPress.com??

    • hi Allyson, thank you! Not sure how the emails show up, I read all the wordpress blogs I follow by going to wordpress.com and clicking on followed sites. Also the emails from these blogs go to my spam folder sometimes instead of my inbox, so be sure to check your junk/spam and mark it not junk. Hope this helps!
