    I do take orders as well, so if someone wanted their pet sketched, they can send me a picture of their pet and i will sketch it for a "small fee" to help fund for the graphite used and the high quality paper. i've been doing this for years now..

    These are some of my older sketches. I haven't been able to scan my newest ones yet.

    Summer, those were awesome! Honestly, though, the newfies eyes were not right (you wanted honest opinions, right?) But the rest were magnificent!

    If I do it, you dont have to use any expensive paper or charcoal or whateva for me, b/c we have no money, but I want one!

    you don't have to have expensive charcoals and paper..the paper you do want to use for a finished piece should be acid free, a pad of that can be purchased for around 10 dollars..i practice on copy paper..usually the backs of things i have printed out. then if i think i like something and want to take it all the way out THEN i get out the good paper. THe first pencil piece i posted was made with two mechanical pencils..one a normal zebra (i love zebra's) ordinary number 5 and then for tight places i get out the expensive one it does cost about 10 dollars and is and o3 which takes a little getting use to..a heavy hand is doomed. A lot of people think you need fancy set ups but it isn't true. i have had some wonderful success with plain old vine charcoal and a scrap of oil cloth.

    I know this thread is from a month ago. But anyhoo. Summer, I can't see the pics. But I would really want to see them tho. I'm looking around at different artists. I want to get my dogs painted. How much would the small fee be?
