For Christmas, I got a gorgeous drawing/drafting table from my fiance's parents. I tried it out tonight for the first time and it makes drawing so much easier than having to hunch over a drawing pad on the couch.
The drawing I did tonight is of my new horse, Lucy:
I used a photo I took of her as my reference. I love using my own photographs as references because then the piece is truly original.
Here is a shot of my drawing table all set up in my apartment:
I like having the fish to look at while I draw :)
If you're interested in reading more about Lucy, she has her own blog here.
