gestures

I have decided to get my behind back into gesture drawing. It is great practice for understanding the flow and motion of a figure. So daily exercises are the way to go if you can afford the time. Here are mine for the week so far as well as some life drawing and other miscellaneous things that pop into my mind.

 

Inktober week 3

A little bit late, but here it is. Last week’s Inktober lineup.

And here is a piece I just finished for one of my gallery shows at the end of the month. I call it The Dragon Talisman. Took a while.

And last but not least, finally done with this fan art piece. Took forever, but learned a lot and will learn more in the future.

 

Inktober begins

Yes. Inktober is now upon us once again. An ink drawing a day keeps the…headless horseman away? I don’t know, but it sounds cool.

Next up I have my entry for the Paint a Monument Challenge over on James Gurney’s blog. Was a lot of fun to do, and had a few friends join me so the conversation was good as well 🙂 I guess I should call most of my sketchbook stuff “mind trippin” because that is what it seems like to me after I look at it a few days later!

Quick update

Hey all! Just a few little things this week. First is some work on two separate paintings I will be doing. One for the Infected by Art competition as well as one for the Tiny Dragon book. Just getting the ideas out now, so nothing fancy.

And next, is a rather long coming update on the fan art piece I have been working on. I feel pretty close to the end here once I get all the characters out of the way (and by end I mean probably another 10-15 hours of work). I can’t wait to get this one done PHEW!

Pow wow

Had a great time yesterday at a Native American Pow wow. Lots of interesting facts learned and some awesome music as well.

A second set of thumbnails to narrow down possibilities for another project I am working on.
