    I didn't notice the pics I posted last night were sideways. Fixed now. I still don't understand why they are so big. They both are a lot smaller in real life, so my mistakes are really magnified. The lines are made with a fine point ball point pen, to give you an idea of the magnification.

    Yongsung Kim is the latest artist to sweep through Mormondom (although I don't think he is LDS). Prior to his Christian period, he was a hyper realist. This is his most popular work here in Utah:






    This one is my favorite, and far less known. There is no print or giclee for it, but Kim says maybe in January. He calls this The Outer Garment of the Lord, and I like that it is about the woman with the issue of blood.

    We have the first one in our home. I like it. I love that story.

    Figured I needed to do a sketch of the next prophet. Completed from start to finish in church. Not my best, but I was a little rushed.

    My friend in the Marine Corps flew out to help me bring cows home. Takes a good friend to fly to Wyoming in January to help a buddy who's laid up. Anyway, I never get tired of seeing cattle lined out for two miles when they trail. He had this picture taken, and I sketched it to send home with him as a token of appreciation. I tried different sized pens and it helped me with some of the details, but capturing a herd of cows in the distance is really tough. Not my best work, but overall I think I'm happy with it. The proportions are consistent with the picture, so that's progress. These pictures are extreme closeups of the originals, so it magnifies the errors of my lines.

    Imagine if you will, the cows are an elephant's head and trunk, and the elephant is spitting out a bunch of seeds. The lead cow in the stream of seeds is my favorite thing about this drawing. It really looks like the lead cow, shirking against the cold and snow.

    I tried pencils with this one. My wife gave me pencils, charcoal, and various sized pens with a large tablet for Christmas, and it's been fun to experiment.

    I like this one best of all that you've done. The lines not being so clean gives it an airy feel. You also did a solid job of conveying the devotion a dog feels and expresses to its owner. I also think the move from black to brown better simulates the colors of the landscape you're representing.

    Dang I'll have to find my old paintings and post up some acrylics of the Wu Tang Clan I did back in high school!

    Thank you. Several people have told me that. I think a lot of it is that it's just a great picture (taken by my daughter, who is very talented). Also, the pencil makes it softer, and allows me to put more detail and better smooth the shades. Practice has helped, as well; I'm learning with every drawing.
