I grabbed a frame out of one of her old videos:

And making it into a pencil drawing. Then will use colored pencil to bring it to life:

Very nice, Froggie! Please post the finished version for us to look at, would you?

Love it, Dale, it looks like the countryside where I grew up.

Very nice work, faithful to the original yet still creative. I hope she likes it :)

It' should be pretty obvious I have a lot to learn about pencil drawings. I definitely over-cooked the shadows in the foreground, and under-cooked the highlights in the foreground.

Also, the paper I used was very heavy grained. I'm going to pick up some less grainy paper tomorrow..........
