Labyrinth 30th Anniversary Tribute Sketches

Just under the wire with this one on the old blog-o-sphere.  Really glad to have the chance to do this.  I could really do another set of these, and will definitely revisit this movie very soon.  This round was fairly straight forward, as I wanted to do 30 sketches in about 30 days.  Anyway, learned a lot doing these.  I included some of the sketches that didn't quite make the cut in my original posting of these on Facebook.

Like I said, there will be at least 3 more Labyrinth related sketches coming well as some new online ventures and such.

Thanks for stopping by...happy holiday!

Sketch Paint Study Stuff

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 very tired.

Drawings from Life

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.
