You can, it just takes study and practice.

I know that this is true, but the limited time I have to hobby all goes into Miniature Painting, Cooking and Hiking.

Still I love seeing people's art and on some rare occassions I try to draw something.

Update on the previous pencil drawing. There is a color version of it. 

 

There is a forum devoted to Lizardmen armies. And on that forum they were having a contest for art vaguely themed around Lizardmen. Under the (rather curious) rules of the contest teaming arrangements were allowed. 

 

Anyway I teamed up with a gent who goes by N810 (pronounced Nathan) who is rather good at applying color, I also wrote some words and our aim was to create something that looked like a graphic novel page.  It is a huge file size, so it's tagged.

Under the strange rules on that Warhammer Lizardmen forum one can enter solo as well as on teams. 

 

This drawing was my solo entry in the same competition:

(It illustrated a piece of fan fiction also found on that same forum.)

 

Pull Quote from the story:

 

The City Burns

"...There were a great many weapons to be had, but he found himself drawn to the obsidian axe carried by Revered Guardian Xanst ... the weapon was buried in some rat-like monstrosity of twisted flesh and mottled fur..."

Thanks Xherman. Somebody on the Lizardmen forum said they thought it looked like a rock album cover. [?]

 

There are work in progress photos of the axe drawing, but...those might be as interesting as watching paint dry.

WIP anyone?

Turning the page in the sketch book revealed this:

Tree...Menhir...Runes

 

This one was mainly experiments in combining Sharpie® and pencils.

Many Rock Album covers use things like fire, axes andmenhirs, runes too actually.

 

Fantasy and Scifi are prominent in the Rock and Metal album covers.

Took a break from cataloging the sketchbook and drew a map:

Double green stripes approximate the equator. Can't decide whether to add mountains...

      The Frequently Ignored "Rules"
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 2AM and 9AM GMT (London time).
      3.5 (Rule 3 may be the 2nd most broken rule.)
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me. 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why are always fun).
      7. Weekend questions will take the form of  two or three day challenges, often starting on Fridays.
       
      1st Question will be posted in a bit (had to wait so it didn't merge posts) ...and this month only... we start on the 3rd.

      This is Talespinner's fault. And also OneBoot's idea. (In another thread Talespinner challenged people to try something that was new —to them— and then Oneboot mentioned OSL and this specific model.)
       
      So, I acquired one 77364 on Saturday. Then I headed into the paint area to make a start. At that point "a idea flew into my funnel" after I spotted newish bottles of Blue Liner and Black Primer. These paints  got mixed...
       
      ...FOR SCIENCE!™

      The other part of the idea was to prime the mini with this inky dark mixture (roughly 50/50 Blue Liner/Black Primer**) where the lantern light could not reach. I Probably worked too fast. I am thinking the back of her head should be all inky as well. 
       
      The pizza happened later. 
       
      **That made a nice rich black. Next: there will be a sword swap.
