Scenes scenes scenes…

Perspective with vanishing points on page.

I have been doing a bit too much drawing from reference image, So to get some variation in my drawing I decided to draw some scenes from imagination and only use reference image to get some ideas as how to fill in the fine details.

Inspired by a tree in Manito Park, imaginary scene.
Wanted to just make a endless hallway drawing, imaginary scene.
Mixing some random elements, imaginary scene.
Little more planned out composition, Imaginary scene.

Drawing insects

Drawing a praying mantis perched on a rock

I have done a lot of quick sketches of mammals, fish even birds but not as many insects. So today I decided I should give a stab at drawing a preying mantis. I just googled praying mantis and attempted to freehand sketch the following reference image.

The result
Pencil and paper sketch scanned in and touched up in GIMP
