I’ve been spending time at a local coffee shop when I have time in the mornings. The barista there is kinda cute, so I couldn’t stop myself from doing a drawing of her the other morning to break in my new sketchbook. Then I brought it home and decided to try something other than my normal digital painting; I pulled out and dusted off my markers and started having some fun. I think more of these are in store for the days to come.
Last weekend I had the opportunity to take part in the Watercolor Society of Oregon’s annual conference. During some down time someone literally thrust a few tubes of gouache into my hands and told me to do a little painting. After about ten (maybe fifteen?) minutes I had blocked this little heroine in and had to get back to my duties.
I’m thinking more of this kind of thing will be in my future.
I’m going to try something new over the next couple of days; I feel as if I’ve been posting a lot of sketch work recently, and not a whole lot of finishes. So, I’m going to post some progress shots of a new piece I’m working on. It might also inspire me to get myself in gear and finish it up.
Have a good week, everyone.
Now that Rose City ComicCon is over I won’t feel bad about posting all of the drawings I did in preparation I did for it. (There’s no longer any surprise to ruin, is there?) This was one of many 4″x6″ drawings I had in my arsenal. I find it interesting that it was also the first drawing to sell.
Hey, when you gotta party, you gotta party.
