janejanie Study of an old man's eye. Prismacolor and Derwent pencils on Strathmore toned paper. Highlights were made with a white gel pen by Hybrid. This is my first eye study and it was fun to do. I spent 3 days working on it. #eye #drawing #art #pencildrawing #artfido #artcollective 2mon

  •   janejanie @mizore86_drawing please don't feel bad over your art. My drawings were not good when I started, but I kept going and they did improve. I don't know what type of art you are interested in or what you want to achieve as an artist. If you're serious about learning, I suggest getting some books on techniques, and books from artists whose work you like. Also try looking on YouTube - there are many great artists who post tutorials. Another place to try is the forum wetcanvas.com where you can talk with others trying to learn, get tips and feedback etc. Don't be disheartened; it takes time and a lot of effort to learn - nothing good comes easy, but it's worth the hard work! 2mon
  •   mizore86_drawing You are really cute thank you... I'll try all of this because drawing is the best way for me to "run away". I don't really know what style is my style lol I didn't found it but I will...I hope. Anyway...you are amazing :-) kisses from France and thank you for inspiring and encouraging me. 2mon
  •   janejanie @mizore86_drawing you are very welcome! Drawing is great fun and you should keep going. 2mon
  •   zeinab_msv95 Hi.. can I ask how many days did it take u to draw ?? 1mon
  •   janejanie @zeinab1msv hi, I think I spent about 3 weeks on it. Really hard to say how many hours it took as I just draw whenever I get spare time. 1mon
  •   zeinab_msv95 @janejanie really really thnx for ur answer... and how many years u have been drawing, ? 1mon
  •   creepitghost @xxkittykaixx this is so awesome, they have talent omg 3w

janejanie It's fun to look back at some of my work from this year. I hope I continue to make progress in 2015. People often ask me for advice on improving their artwork, and my answer is always to practice more. It is only by dedicating time and putting in effort that we see improvements, whether it's art or anything else in life. I'm excited about a new year full of different projects! #art #video #drawing #learning 3mon

janejanie Western scrub jay sat on a fence, mixed media. This started out as a pencil and pen drawing (Faber Castell and Prismas), but I decided to paint the feathers with acrylic. I really want to start painting more often. Sorry for the annoying watermark, but unfortunately I've had problems with art thieves on Instagram lately. Lots more art to come in the new year! Best wishes to you all for 2015. #art #bird #pencildrawing #artfido #artcollective 3mon

janejanie Close-up to show the details! Thank you for all the features and follows, I'm so happy to have reached 10k. Big thanks to @highvoltage_art @worldofpencils @art_sanity @spotlightonartists @instartists @illustratedmonthly @moanartistsupport @art.ed and every other page who featured this piece. I can't answer every comment, and as always there are some negative amongst the positive. I've always been honest about my art and I work hard; there are plenty of work in progress pictures for you to see the development of each piece. I draw freehand, so nothing is ever perfect, nor will it be to everyone's taste. I can only try my best! Thank you again to those who have given me so much encouragement along the way - I hope you will enjoy the art I share in the future. #art #wolf #pastel #artcollective #artfido 4mon

janejanie Hey guys! Sorry for the lack of updates; I've been ill this past week and unable to do any art. I've started another little bird portrait as I didn't feel up to doing any of my bigger projects. It's a western scrub jay in coloured pencil and pen. All the materials used are in the photo: Prismacolor, Faber Castell, gel pens and Copic markers. Thank you for all the features and lovely comments. Apologies for not responding to everyone. #art #bird #artfido #artcollective #pencildrawing 4mon

janejanie Just started this bird drawing. Thanks for getting me over 2000 followers! I've had lots of questions about the materials I use. I have many different brands of pencils and pens, but I mostly use Faber Castell and Prismacolor pencils. I use various markers, gel pens and fineliners. I've also had requests for videos; I'll try my best to video something for you soon. Please be patient as art is not my day job. ;) Hope you're all having a great weekend! #art #drawing #bird #wip #pencildrawing #artnerd #artfido 5mon
