One beautiful October afternoon...

Work in progress painting of the river by my parent's house recently.

The Good Life

Here's a recent watercolor I did of my mom's cat Sam, asleep on a chair cushion under the dining room table. (6"x9")

Spoiled cat!

Rainy day 'Shoppin

Today was a little rainy and a good day to do some painting. I started this one in the morning and have been working on it off and on all day. I'll probably dive into color tomorrow.

A silver lining

Sometimes life takes an unexpected turn, like a parting of the clouds on a stormy day. It can be beautiful and exciting, but there's also a comfort in knowing what the weather will do.

Rest of my Spring 09 Salon stuff

Been busy at work the past couple months - really busy. But I still managed to get to salon quite a few times before it ended in May.

Here are a few more 2-5 minute poses, ball point pen on 18"x24" drawing paper. I took these with my phone's camera so the quality kinda sucks.

Another salon night...

Tonight I warmed up and was having a decent drawing session, despite it being a male model (not my favorite, in case you couldn't tell from the rest of my entries). But I missed the last hour or so when I got an important phone call.

These are 5 minute poses in ball point pen.

This guy had some weird poses, and a lot of seated poses which are easy to screw up. I think my favorite one is the top-right one on the 2nd page here.

More to come! Thanks for viewing!

Sketchbook and Salon

Here first is some stuff out of my sketchbook. Medium as always is ball point pen.

I'm trying to play with poses. These are all out of my head, which is probably obvious.

Next is some stuff from drawing salon last week. First are 2-minute poses, 2nd 2 are 5-minute poses, and the last one is more 2-minute poses.

It feels good to get back into the drawing habit after having such a lull. I'm feeling good about my progress but there is a lot of work to do still.

More to come. Thanks for checking out my blog. :)

Been a while, new figure stuff

So I've gone to drawing salon a couple times in the past few weeks, and have been practicing the figure a bit more.

These were done in Photoshop. I have some okay stuff in a sketchbook too that I'll scan tomorrow.

The 2nd one was drawn without reference. I'm pretty happy with it.

More to come.

Site updated! finally...

I finally got around to uploading my REAL website to my server tonight.

The reel still won't play properly - Quicktime is giving me grief. But it's a step in the right direction, at least.

Happy New Year!

After seeing what my brother could do with Colors on Nintendo DS, I decided to give it a try and do some digital painting.

This one began its life on DS, then was brought to Photoshop to add detail. I painted it for my girlfriend Sabrina, who loves fairies, almost as much as chocolate.
