Sketch Sketch Sketch DRAW DRAW DRAW

Hey all! These are some sketches I've been doing over break. Lady in the top left hand corner is Yuckie Warbucks. She's a character I'm working on-- I'm slowly planning an Kid-In-All-Of-Us adult childrens book...

I actually saw a guy like this pass us in a car. He was driving one of those GIANT pick up trucks. I laughed.
Flipping through my old sketchbooks, i always come across a character in this pained creeper position...
I was drawing this when we were driving around this whole campus of a shut down crazy people home in Columbia, South Carolina. It was incredible... it was like a ghost town smack dab in the middle of South Carolina's capital...
Love On Top
I watched Benjamin Button for the first time. That line was a good one...
She'll eat your cabin fever.

More Digital Practice

This one was fun. I'm looking forward to playing with my tablet more and more. As opposed to dreading learning a new medium. The more I play with it the more fun this seems to explore.

Digital Practice

Hey there! I know it's been a little while--I've been on vacation from school. I did two paintings for Christmas presents thus far (some more to come for after-Christmas presents). When school ended for the semester I was kind of comatose for a few days... The paintings were rushed so I won't be posting them.

I'm in the south currently and its EXTREMELY different from what I'm used to. It's warm. No snow. At. All. I'm having a bit of trouble deciphering whether or not I'm okay without the frigid North's inconvenient but lovable winter.

My family and I have been taking a lot of car trips to places here and there throughout the Carolinas. So, I've been drawing up a storm and probably will post some of the sketches when i get back. I've got my next painting planned to get started with reference pictures and what not. I've also been trying my hand at digital work. Not a lot, just a little bit. I'm pretty lousy at digital painting, but i'm practicing! Here's a doodle I've been working on tonight.

I know I should be doing still life's and what not, but i figured a made up portrait would help familiarize myself with the pick and choose color business that comes with digital painting.

I hope you all have been having a great time on your holidays! It's now the new year and I wish you all the best of luck with it! I know I'll be working my tooshie off to be the best i can.

See you at the races,
