A drawing I did from imagination. Profile view is usually the one view I can do pretty comfortably from memory, but looking back at it now, I think the ear could have used some work. This was done using graphite, micron, and liquid watercolor on drawing paper.
I referenced “Fashion: A History from the 18th to the 20th century,” for this drawing. It’s a great book to own for artists. You can look to it for patterns, stitching, how certain materials are affected by light, and folds and they way they interact with gravity and the forms underneath. This piece was done with graphite and micron on smooth marker paper.
Solace was found…
in the strangest, most unheard of corners and edges of the planet. Where endangered creatures and outcasts prospered, there she would be; sharing stories and imparting philosophies amongst a population eagerly seeking what she had already found.
I really want to get better at writing, so that means I’ll probably have to start reading more. I’ll start by re-reading one of my favorite books, “Hatchet,” by Gary Paulsen. It’s a short read, but one of the only fiction books I own In the end, I would love to write a huge story, involving all of my demons, aliens, and creatures. I really have no clue how to compose a story though, so buckle up for the journey.
Not of This World
Holy. Haven’t posted in a while. Well, anyway…
This is the direction the new series is taking. I want to go all out on this one though, so still a lot of work to do.. This series will be the death of me…
Here is the last of these nocturnal creatures I’ll be doing. The eyes have been so much fun to work on. I used a combination of 6 colors in this one. The challenge is finding colors that complement each other well. Here I went from a blue to purple, to pink, and finally to a cream color. I haven’t really been focusing so much on the creature design aspect so much, so it ended up just looking like a plain ol’ barn owl. And now, looking at it, I noticed I lost some of the puffiness of the lil guy from the block-in to the final. Oh well. Anyway, before I even started this one, I had already imagined the next series I will be doing. Stay tuned for those. Feel free to ask me questions about my process.
