This is the second of my sketches done from a photo off of my new favourite site, Something to Draw. I actually found this one yesterday at the same time as the other one and had a really hard time choosing between them. In the end I decided to go with the woman in bed yesterday because of the interesting perspective and because I’d drawn a fox the day before so I figured maybe I should try a person before doing another animal. This little guy was just so cute though that I couldn’t resist saving the photo so that I could draw him today.
Sadly I forgot to copy down the sparse information that came with the photo so I can’t give credit to the photographer. I’m assuming that the creature is a mouse. It’s definitely a rodent of some sort and it’s obviously very small. I really liked the photo so this was another fun one to try to draw. I took a little bit more time cleaning up my line drawing with this one so that it didn’t look terrible before I started on the paint. I didn’t go quite as gung ho on the painting for this one though because I was starting to run out of energy. I didn’t get much sleep last night. All in all I’m still fairly happy with how it turned out though. It doesn’t do the photo much justice but in its own simplistic way I think it works. He still looks like a cute little guy to me.
