Taking A Break

Since my last post, I have been working on a digital piece. I finally finished it this evening and really want to start another one, but I think I am going to give my eyes and computer a rest and work on some traditional paintings I have been neglecting while working on this.

Here is the drawing from my little sketchbook...

...and this is the finished digital piece done in Illustrator.

A Bit of a Change - Kinda

Due to a conversation I had this evening, I was reminded that I have made digital art in the past and semi-recently. It is not, by any means, my preferred medium - however, I like doing it and I like learning the programs. Also, it is sometimes nice to have colors readily available instead of making 30 different of brown until I find the brown. Also "apple Z" is am amazing option and should apply to real life.

Saying that, I think I might like 2010 to be a year where I make digital art more, and by more that would require about...3 pieces, as I don't do it often and am kinda slow at it. BUT, in the mean time, please enjoy (or not) the pieces I have been working on recently (without wacom I would like to add, not that that makes them any better).

"A - Armadillo"

Personally, I think my armadillo needs some work, so I am going to work on that as my first digital assignment.

p.s. thanks to michelle "mad dawg" matiyow for helping me keep my files at a realist size, you are a life saver

2010 - for real?!

I suppose that almost a week after it has happened, a happy greeting to the new year is still acceptable. In celebration of the new year, I bring you new art!

"annus mirabilis 1666"

"the ribbon seal waits for no one"

"the haunting of husbands"

"recreational trawler"

"dr. S. returns"

Hope all is well in this new year!!
