I haven't drawn anything freehand in about 15 years. Recently I've decided to try my hand at it again as sort of a therapeutic outlet/stress reliever. Here are my first 2 attempts. The first is a colored pencil drawing of Benaiah, my son. The second is my oldest daughter, Abigail. Each of them took me 20 to 30 minutes to complete.

WOW, Shawn, those are fantastic!

I didn't realize we had another artist besides our own Nate.

I wish I had the talent you two have been blessed with. :wink:

Shawn, that pic of Ben is fantastic! Even in colored pencils his determination & joy shine through. Great job capturing his heart like that!

Here is my youngest daughter, Emily, age 4, in her princess play outfit. I just got through drawing it, and titled it "Daddy's Little Princess, All Dressed Up"

Thanks for all the compliments, guys! One more for the night...I just got finished with it. I am not completely satisfied with it, and the photo I took of it to post is not the greatest, but i am too tired to do anything about it tonight. For those of you who helped pray Benaiah through his heart surgery, you will recognize the imagery in the background. I wish now that I would have made the lion a little lighter like I did the angel. Maybe I can fix it tomorrow...Lol

Dude, that is a fantastic picture. I think you're gonna wanna get that one framed. If I were Ben, I know that picture would mean a ton to me as I grew up.

I drew this yesterday as a birthday present for the guy who owns & runs our BJJ gym, Jim. His birthday is today, and I am giving it to him right before class tonight. The scan of it isn't the best, but you can get a good idea of the pic anyway. Again, it is done with some cheap Walmart colored pencils. I really need to break down and buy some good ones, I suppose, since I have seen that I am actually enjoying producing some drawings, lol. I titled this "Where Champions Are Made"
