D is for Draftsmanship

It is weekend, time for blogging for fun once again. We have letter D this week, Draftsmanship - a creation of an artistic image. No, i can't draw. When GOD has showered mortals with this artistic talent, i might have been snoring away. Didn't even have an iota to show off, tsk! For the purpose of this challenge, i present to you ways of presenting an image in a different medium of art.

I have a picture of quay taken some weeks ago. The sky is getting dark, a gentle warning of a coming rain. I love this picture, i find it very serene and laid back way of spending an afternoon.

  1. I might have been late....i can draw and I discovered it when I was 16. But not good enough to showcase it, will keep it for myself...frustrated artist hahaha.

    The other day, I was looking for a nice blog header, I remembered my phone, grabbed it and draw. I made 3 but I've chosen the simple one. i tried ACDSeePhotomanager2009 to add some effects.

    Have a lovely weekend Ms. Eng.

  6. The emboss and pencil has always been a favorite. And with this scene the pencil is most effective, isn't it eng? oh, that's my POV only, heheheh...Great post.

  7. Wow the different results are so exciting. Best of luck as you learn and do more and more. I'm so dumb with directions I can't do that kind of stuff however, I really enjoy looking.

  12. Wow! I'm sure you can't complain with your draftsmanship Eng.

    This is more than what we can bargain for.

    All creations have different species and varieties so is the art:styles, fashion, trend, mode ...name it. carbon, paint, crayola, water colour, coloured pens ...it's all there.

    all it needs is our creative mind and you just did it!

    Fantastic!

  23. Hi Eng, I love them all--but the pencil drawing one caught my attention. I used to have a pencil drawing picture that my ex-husband did of a cabin in the mountains. One of our sons has it now. I loved it.
