So, you know how I said I was going to get back on my posting schedule again like, THREE WEEKS AGO?! Well, I’m saying it again. Every time I write out my plan, it changes, BUT it won’t this time! (Insert awkward laughing) Alright. In my defense, I overestimated my ability to get… Read More I’m Back!
That is right folks! The paintings have been picked! I originally was only bringing one, but they liked the two blue ones and the concept behind the hand, so I’m sending all three! I’m so happy that I keep using exclamation points! Now they just need to get prepped and ready!
There is such a sense of accomplishment once you finish a long, overly detailed drawing. There are definitely things about this one in need of work, like fabric and getting the main subject to stand out with values that are almost the same. BUT considering I almost never draw more than the focal, I’m pretty… Read More Afternoon Art #16
I have officially made five paintings for this gala. I’ll be honest I got a bit angry at this painting. First I did the dots, but then I didn’t like them, then I did and added more dots. Then I needed to add a subject, which was going to be a bird silhouette, but I… Read More Gala Art Round Five
My apologies if that scared anyone. It has been brought to my attention more than once that the fangs are…menacing, to say the least. Either way, I love this drawing. This may not be my best work, but drawing colorful cartoons and character portraits is one of the things I do to relax and think. … Read More Drawing Goblins and Fairies
Guess what I worked on all week end! If you guessed “worked on a steampunk style re-do of my Nerf Gun,” you’d be right. If you guessed “spent way too much time playing the new Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild”… well you’d be right, too. Either way, from this combination this Nerf gun… Read More Steampunk Nerf Gun
Whew. I finally finished this one. I slowed down my pace a bit (and was busy with some other things that popped up) BUT, it is done. This painting was very fun to make. The concept was time flies, thus the clock-birds or clock-owls or “clowls” as my siblings have named them. In case you… Read More Gala Art Round Four
Some of you may remember that a few months ago I wrote a post about why I think artists are important, but now I’m going to try to attack an even bigger question: why Christian artists are important. This is a difficult post, mostly because art itself is subjective and there aren’t really right or… Read More Why The World Needs Christian Artists
And we’re back with another painting. After the first one I developed a bit of an obsession. I am now quite over it because you can only paint so many eyes in a row. This eye gave me a teensy bit of trouble, probably because I thought the last one went way better than I… Read More Gala Art Round Two
So a couple of posts ago I told you guys about the gala, but I hadn’t done anything yet. Now I have. (Or should I say eye have?) Eye am really happy with how this turned out, especially because I’ve only ever painted one other eye. Is this the one, though? The answer is: I… Read More Gala Art Round One
