Shay Cougar by Coronadofwb Shay Cougar by Coronadofwb
This is a gift pic for a good friend I met here on dA, but she's no longer on this site. Over the Christmas holidays a good friend of mine passed away, and about a week later she told that one of her friends was killed. I'll never forget that heartwrenching conversation, and understanding how she felt all too well, I promised her a gift pic. I tried drawing something two or three times and they never came out good >_< I got this drawn the night before my surgery while watching Supernatural, it only took me about that time frame to draw it too, about an hour. She sent me some pictures of her with a cougar and so I thought I'd make her a cougar gift :heart: Her nickname is Shay too, so I threw that into the mix of this pic. The style was inspired by looking through a lot of different galleries here on dA. It's not my favorite drawing but I'm still playing around and learning :)

An hour? Man, and here I thought 20 minutes was a normal sketch time for someone like you. You make it look so easy... :no:

The sketch itself looks happy, but kind of funny... I think it's the proportions and maybe a bit of the actual anatomy. But the colouring job's awesome! :love: I hope Shay likes it. :hug:

An hour is quite fast for something like this xD Sorry :giggle:

Yeah, playing with a cartoony style. The eyes bother me the most. They seem too narrow -_-; I hope so too. She could really use it right now since she informed me she was assaulted a few days ago, which ticks me off. I wish I could go over there and beat the crap out of the guy that did that to her :stab:

Really? :faint: Well, I don't feel so bad about my art anymore, then. :hug:

Yeah, good point. They're nice eyes, they just don't seem to fit in the face... :paranoid: My biggest beef's the mouth, though. :hug: Assaulted? :omg: That's horrible! We should both go and beat him up, but I guess we'll have to resort to Dave ... I bet he'd do that for you. :chainsaw:

Yeah xD Usually doing a good sketch takes me 12 hours or longer, like my Dan vs Valarie pic. I believe that one was 14 hours just for the pencil sketch.

Really? The mouth? xD Yeah, I need work on my realism a bit o_o; Yep, at her job too, but the season's over so she's done with there now, thankfully :phew: We should :chainsaw: Haha, I hope he can xD!

:O_o: Now I feel a lot better! :dance: An elaborate picture I can sort of understand, though. So many lines...

Yeah, I think it goes up too high and cuts off part of the nose. Yeah, probably, but hey, improvement's good! :glomp: At her job? :wtf: That is beyond evil! :stab: Thank goodness she's done! :phew::phew: Me too!

Art takes a long time. You shouldn't be surprised ^^ Yeah, and I think about that in a way too: All art is is lines. How can it be hard? xD

Ah, okay, I see what you mean :D Indeed :aww: Yeah :( Yeah, it was a fellow employee from what I understand. She turned him in so that made me happy. :dance:

I'm not surprised for someone at my level, just at yours... :O_o: Right. It's just getting the lines the right shape and in the right place that I have trouble with... :paranoid:

Okay. :hug: Ouch! Even worse! But turning him in... Good for her! :w00t: Makes me happy too. :D

Well, I kind of had to get into the drawing grove again, because I had quit drawing for two years due to discouragement and started drawing again about two months from joining dA. It was 2005 with all of those hurricanes, I just sat down and started drawing to take off my mind from them. I always draw when I'm emotionally distraught or frantically worried. Did I tell you the story about when I started drawing DP? I think I did. It was weird, because I'd actually improved my art from not drawing in years, well I drew, but sporatically, and not often. *shrug* Sorry for the story ^^; Yeah, exactly, and getting them clean as well. It's evil :shakefist:

Yes! Yay! :boogie:
