Here are some things that were painted a few months ago and forgot to post...procrastination. Some is more recent...and there are other things in the works, as always. The studies are labeled after the artist they were copied from. These are great, great artists, that you should look up on the internet and study from too. These were done with a time limit of 2.5 hours or less, because slowness is a personal problem. Apologies to the artists for not doing a better job.
All the other things are just doodles and things for fun and exploration. So far, on a personal level, Tombow dual ended brush pens are the funnest, quickest, and most intuitive tools. Color pencils are probably the best, still.
Only 3 more weeks of live caricature before the rehabilitation process can begin on art, creativity, and general well-being..hope to make it through...hope to be able to recover quickly. So tired...so very tired.
Been meaning to get back into life drawing, and finally did. Here are some final efforts before another long summer of live caricatures. It felt really great to be around other artists again, in a really positive environment...almost forgot how that feels.
Some recent sketches. Hands are tough...backs are tough. You'll never be able to draw enough (rhyme) of them...that's the painful truth. Anyway, on to something else...but what? Not sure, but whatever it is, it better be standing still, scantily clad, and holding a weapon of some sort...sigh.
