Tug Of Worm by KW-Scott Tug Of Worm by KW-Scott
Well here it is FINALLY!!! :D My first piece of 2013!

This is done with my trusty Prismacolor colored pencils and created on Strathmore's 500 series hot press watercolor paper. I really liked this paper and would recommend it to anyone doing colored pencil work. It's smoother than regular watercolor paper and held up well against my punishment :D I used a free desktop background that I found using Google search for the reference of this piece. It was portrait oriented and I made it landscape which meant doing more background for the piece and creating the tail for the robin. I'm framing it today in a frame that I hand made just for this picture. If anyone's interested I might get a shot of the framed piece and post it. :D Thanks for looking at my artwork and leaving a comment if you're motivated to do so... comments always encourage me! :dalove:

Awwww... Poor worm :(

Haha this is really good! The bird and the worm are drawn so realistically, and I love how you did the background with the blades of grass. :)

You certainly did a great job on this one, especially the feather structure [however it's called over there^^] looks very well:D
Nice job Kevin;)

You are most welcome my friend!:)
You should be happy with it man, worth every second you worked on it;)
Well maybe you didn't won but hey, you did't lose anything, in fact see it as investment for yourself, personal work to be proud of:) To my opinion, much more worth than a price;)

This is true... I need it for my inventory at least anyways... I'm down to three pieces and I need to crank out some more since I've got shows coming up in March... Right now I'm busy out in my wood shop working on some special boxes that I was commissioned to create. I'm going to try to get some pictures and post them soon :D

I see=) Well that's a good thing right, I mean it's a good piece for the shows for sure! I wish art would be more popular here so I can give my art some exposure aswell to catch money but..well, on the other hand I have a nice portfolio on paper now:)

Good luck with your woodworks and artworks my friend, and I wish you all the best for those shows:D

Very pretty! Love the lightness and airy feeling of this drawing, which is enhanced by the lovely soft border!
Great feathers!

Nice! I like how you blurred and lightened the background to give it depth. My only critique would be also to make the background grass get smaller as well. Still, very impressive.
