Illustration Friday: Gravity


















...or lack thereof.

Done in Photoshop from a quick sketch, using reference from Armathor-Stock on DeviantArt.

Orange Dress


















Fooling around with watercolor, pencil, ink, acetate, Photoshop...using a stock photo by simona on DeviantART.

I am amazed at the number of resources on DA, like stock photos and tutorials. Plenty of stuff to keep you busy if you're looking for 'models'—I feel like a kid in a candy store. ;)

DeviantART
I'm trying out a link-with-pic for my DeviantART page, where I'm spending more and more of my time at the moment. I don't think it looks that great...how the heck can I shift the thing over to the left a bit so it lines up, I wonder...

Anyway, check it out if you're so inclined. Nothing new there yet, just the old stuff.

EDIT: Okay, upgrading to the 'new' Blogger lost the DA link with graphic...so, eh. Back to just a text link; I don't think I cared for it much anyway.

Happy Blogiversary to Me-e-e-e...

One year ago today I started this blog with hope--that I'd actually draw more regularly and improve-- and a lot of trepidation. It's been a whole year and I think I've made some progress. :) A big part of that has been all the great comments that people have left here: thanks to all of you! And I'm especially grateful to regular visitors like Patrick, Mel, Artfish, Daryl, Chris, Dan and more--your support via those little comments has made a huge difference! Thank you!

Illustration Friday: Red


















The often scary and always fun-to-watch Hazel Bailey, played by Alison Newman, on "Footballers Wives." Just a fast one as I was running out of time...grrr. But had to give it a try!
