I’m not quite sure who these two guys are, but they may show up in a story at some point.

Spring is in the Air!

Published by under landscape,sketchbook

Today it was beautiful and warm enough to go walk around and paint in Mt. Auburn Cemetery! We got a late start, so I just did this one piece, in gouache and pastel pencil. I didn’t really capture the nature of the tree, but I did more or less get the color, which is what I was primarily after.

(You may see some similarity to this piece from January.)

This drawing is of a kitsune, a Japanese fox spirit with magical powers. Colored pencil, with a little digital touch-up.

Mustn’t leave out men’s fashion, by which of course I mean James Bond. This was done with Photoshop and ArtRage.

Old Sketch of the Day #8: Cowgirl

Published by under sketchbook

I’ve always liked this little sketch, and a few people saw it recently and said I should do more with/like it. Sounds good — want to help me brainstorm some story ideas for this cowgirl?

Fashion drawing 2 – bathing suit model

I don’t like this one as much as the girl with the coat, but I’m still enjoying this technique for working with ArtRage.

fashion & technique

Published by under sketchbook,tools & tech

I’ve got it into my head to do some kind of fashiony illustrations. Why?

1. It’s something completely different.

2. I’m messing around with techniques, some of which seemed to evoke this sort of subject matter.

3. It involves pretty girls, which (as a subject for drawing) is a weakness of mine in both senses of the phrase.

Here’s one. This was done with ArtRage.
