Thread: Treat myself to a nice stalking momento!!

  1. #1

    Treat myself to a nice stalking memento!!

    I had the pleasure of meeting Doug (Norma 308) on here a while back and his better half who is a dab hand at pencil drawings. Once I'd seen her work 1st hand I decided to get a drawing done from the photo of the 1st deer I shot when out with Malc last year. I finally got around to picking it up today and I have to say I'm delighted with the result. I just need to get it nicely mounted and framed now to go in my newly decorated man cave!

    This is the photo



    And this is a hi-res scan of the pencil drawing - Pretty good I reckon!!



    What do you think?

    That's very nice, and something you'll keep and look at with a wonderfull memory for ever, because your first deer is very special. A lovely reminder. Andrew.

    A unique reminder of a memorable moment.

    Pity the artist didn't leave the daffodils in, though!

    As a budding cameraman I'd say the original photo was pretty much perfect, rule of thirds and all that, very nicely taken and well worth making a sketch of, certainly something to treasure.

    That was more luck than judgement then as Malc snapped it with my Iphone!! (Other smartphones are available!!)
