Complete drawing. (Iguana)




Here is the final and complete drawing.

This took me about a month to create. To me it was worth it, I rather have a few pieces I enjoy making, then just creating a bunch of art for no purpose. The bigger and more detail the better.

The colors and detail in this were fun and interesting to use. I’ve drawn one similar drawing to this, called The Horse “External Beauty”.

Here is the link to the drawing if you would like to look

Im thinking I’m going to do an animal series. I’m enjoying the challenges and detail required.

Everyone has been wondering what this is, the drawing is an iguana. Part of the reptile family. We have had some of the most imaginative guesses. Some were close, some way off and some were correct. The way art works isn’t really in my control.

If you see something else, then so be it. Create my image into your own. Use that imagination of yours.

I don’t have a story or meaning of this piece of art, i guess that’s for you. what do you see? What is the meaning for you? That will be up to you.

Hopefully everyone enjoys this piece. Going back to the drawing table to see what I have coming up next.

Im thinking another animal, im not sure. You’ll have to wait and find out.

Have a great day everyone.

  1. I love this one–especially the way that it transitions from really abstract to representational and back as I look at it. You’ve captured the texture of the iguana’s skin and translated into something original without losing its essence. Well done!

  3. Hi Brandon, thanks for the likes! πŸ™‚

    I take it this is hand drawn on 2D sheet of paper? I love that it was not rushed and some considerable time and thought and effort went into your wonderful creation!.

    My reason for asking is that the geometric shapes remind me strongly of the polygons used in 3D computer aided design and i wondered if you had considered doing a similar work on a computer with a 3d drawing program – there are several free on-line ones available.

    Very eye-catching and appealing art – well done! πŸ™‚

    • Yeah no problem.

      Yes it’s 2D on flat paper. Yes I never rush, that’s why I hardly make art. I’m not trying to make pancakes. Thank you appreciate it.

      Yes I know what you’re talking about I have had multiple people mention that to me.

      I might try it one day hahah. I just like real life actual art not a file. I’m old fashion.

      Thank you again, have a great day

  4. Old fashion, or Old School is perfectly fine – we need more people like you who can maintain such ways. πŸ™‚
    There is a lot to be said for keeping it ‘real’ rather than the digitised imitation of reality that is all we seem to get these days. Now, i’m not even sure why i mentioned or suggested you try it!? (computer 3D)
    I like your quote about the shapes of the world – you have exceptional eyesight! πŸ™‚

  5. Thanks for your likes, Brandon.
    As a very old spiritual craftsman, I appreciate those who engage the world with hands heart and feet
    I am a mathematician (geometer), sculptor, keyboardist, singer, poet, -n- stuff.
    The Creator’s language is the Creation, and we are his spoken children.
    My journey is about done. I wish you a great pilgimage, dancing with the Lord of The Dance

    • No problem, thank you. I’m starting to create writings/theories. Eventually I think I’m going to share them on here as well.

      Thanks for the luck, I send some back.
      I understand this phrase I think. I agree with you. I look at my life as a journey, here I am I don’t know why. I’m good at art, for some odd reason. I’ve done much research on ancient history. I have my thoughts about why I’m here.
      I plan on changing the world one day, my art and writings will show the world howuch love we have. Maybe one day this “world” will come to peace. I don’t understand anything. I’m an art kid, hahaha. We always question everything.


      • I just wanted to encourage what I see manifested on your blog. I was never comfortable with the ‘artist’ label or the ‘scholar/academic’ category, though I have been both; I’ve made a good living as a tool&die maker, prototype maker, machinist, carpenter, furniture maker, organ builder, but now retired, I fly with kinetic and static sculptures, poetry and music, i.e. dying happy, giving away whatever I am privileged to co-create …
        I hope the spiritual stream in your work grows in your pilgimage

      • I believe in manifestation, a really weird story happened with me. Actually multiple, would sound crazy if I shared them.
        I understand that too, I don’t like labels. Never liked school, or how it worked. I’m just living.
        Keep enjoying your retirement, just be happy everyday.
        Thank you, I appreciate it. Have a great day.
