Cats, dogs, commissions and a baby

Hi everyone! Here’s the latest batch from me. I keep busy with drawing (almost) every day. I still have a ton of those “free sketch requests” – mostly cats and dogs, but I was quite happy to see a photo of a cute baby girl in the mix as well! She’s cuter in the photo than in my drawing though. The two last drawings are two attempts at a new commissioned drawing. I wasn’t really happy about the first one, so I tried making a new drawing from a different photo, and it turned out better. (I think) – but I’d like to hear your opinions. Speaking about these commissions – it’s going quite well – I’ve got two-three weeks of work booked in my schedule, but I still hope that I can get some more drawings in my to-do list. I’ve made a new website (well, it’s just a wordpress blog) mostly about my commissioned cat, dog and pet drawings at tclausen.net –Β  I can’t help but feel a little strangely “pretentious” about publishing a website about “my best work” – but since I’m trying to get people to pay me for my drawings, I figured that it would be better to have some kind of official “portfolio”. Again, mostly (only) cats and dogs. I hope that once I get back to posting daily here on this blog, I can dedicate it to experimenting a little more. But that’ll be some time in the future.

See this one in particular at my portfolio site tclausen.net

  1. Thomas I like all of these ……….the dog is great, the baby has GREAT eyes…….and the cat commission drawings are wonderful – each in a different way. I like them both really……the light plays off the fur best in the second one but the first one is rather magic in its’ own way. I’m so glad you’re getting commissions……you are ON YOUR WAY……
