Pencil Drawings Animals

I love to draw animals – especially wild animals – because I love to give them character and bring them to life on paper.

See the steps Doreen takes to create a colored pencil drawing from her photo of a pair of lorikeets:

Work done on the background, and more definition is added to the lioness’ body

Armin Mersman. Mike Sibley. I admire these artists for their amazing talent and for their willingness to share knowledge and techniques. 

Let’s follow along with Doreen’s steps as she creates a detailed pencil drawing of a lioness!

I outline my drawing, then usually I do the eyes first, then move up towards the ears and work down the face and into the body. I map out shading quickly and then work on the fine detail.    

It can take 10 – 15 hours depending on the subject and how much detail. Sometimes it can take many more hours if there is a lot of detail. 

I enjoy watercolor, color pencils and oil. My favourite medium is graphite pencils. I love to experiment with pencils and love what I can achieve with graphite.  

Can you describe how you create one of your drawings, from start to finish?

On this page you can read an interview where she explains how she creates her detailed pencil drawings. You can also see some photos of her works-in-progress, which show the steps she takes to completing her animal and portrait drawings.

Practice lots…experiment, read books, watch videos, Google search techniques and art tools.  

You can see more of Doreen’s detailed pencil drawings on her website. She also keeps a blog where you can keep up to date on her works in progress!

The detailed pencil drawings of Doreen Cross capture both the spirit and appearance of her subjects – whether human, animal, or architecture. Created in a careful, realistic style, Doreen’s pencil drawings are a striking reminder of just how powerful and emotive a pencil can be as a tool for creating fine art.

Doreen is from New South Wales, Australia. She has been an artist for 20 years and is entirely self-taught. She draws her wildlife pencil art from photographs, many of them taken near her home in Australia.

Do you have any tips for artists who would like to create more realism in their work?

If you’re interested in commissioning a pencil drawing from Doreen, send her a message!

Many thanks to Doreen Cross for sharing her detailed pencil drawings and artistic process with us!
