More digital Painting

I tried to really get into the "painting" aspect for this piece. I think it's the farthest I've pushed the concept of paining in Photoshop so far. I feel like I'm starting to get on the track I'm looking for.

Still Photoshoppin

I was practicing some fellas in Photoshop...

I read somewhere about an artist I love that she practiced a ton of little digital paintings. She didn't get into the big stuff until she was pretty good at the program. So I'm trying to follow her example!

Edit: An important (for me, I think) discovery from Drawn! is this Disney/Pixar fellow who has a whole slew of drawing videos... helping you to draw better gestures etc. I've only watched one, but it was amazing. I want whatever pens/paint pens/ink pens he has. THEY LOOK SO SMOOTH AND LOVELY!! He's Here. On YouTube. Watch and Adore.

Naked and Toothless

Still thinking about it... Embarrassment, fear, falling, helpless. Like a bad dream!

Edit: Drew something else... Someone mentioned having antlers on Facebook...

Here is a little somethin somethin I worked on today. I'm in a bit of an art slump.
Done with a fine tipped sharpie and my markers. (My art markers and my crayola. I don't discriminate.)
A character from our Graphic Novel.

Never thought I'd post something like this, but I thought it'd be a neat exercise for people wanting to draw more/wanting to learn anatomy... I go to and do 45second sketches all on top of each other. Just a huge mass of drawings. I find I learn a lot quickly, and it is a great warmup for my day. Whole thing took about 20 mins? Didn't really time myself.

Love for the Jam

Here is my newest drawing for the jam! I tried to go with a much more tame look, also left most of the original sketchy lines instead of creating photoshop lines. Sometimes they look too "clean".

Posted at the jam HERE!

So I had a trip to the oral surgeon today about my wisdom teeth. My appointment is confirmed for the end of April. That's fine. However, he told me that he's extracting ANOTHER tooth, my hidden canine. The one that's haunted my dreams since I was 12. The tooth that's embedded in the roof of my mouth. It will finally be gone, and not cause me any more problems! However, this means I will be missing one of my adult teeth. This also means that when my baby canine FINALLY decides to take a leap out of my mouth, I will have a gap. SURE there are falsies, but since I don't know anything about those, the thought terrifies me. Here is a watercolour of me without my baby tooth. Haha. FEAR!

I was thinking more and more about missing teeth. I have never seen a business person with a missing tooth. I feel like missing teeth can depict poverty, for if one has the money, one will have great teeth. Dentistry is so expensive, but also such a huge priority. So unfortunate. I'm awful at expressing my innermost thoughts, so here is a sketchity sketch.

Navi Girl

I sketched up an Avatar character tonight, and went to town colouring her. Thew in a background, and VOILA!


I'm not a huge fan of acrylic painting. I prefer oils, or watercolours. I'm used to oils and watercolour, so I figured, "Hey, I'm going to try acrylics out FOR REAL and get to know them, and maybe, just maybe, I'll like them." SO I went out and bought acrylic paints and some cheap 'canvas paper'. Here is what I came up with. I ended up cutting the paper to a strange shape. I can't WAIT to get a nice scanner. Maybe I'll do that on Thursday...hmm.

Markers! Again!

After taking a tip from Krystin, I attempted using my markers with Q-tips and water. This is the result of that experiment!

More colour work!

I drew this a while ago. He is kind of a concept drawing of a character that makes a brief appearance in "FEW" (our Graphic Novel) which I'm not working on until I feel better.

This drawing was done in photoshop CS3, and I used a palette from an artist I admire. I tweeked it only a wee bit. I don't know how, but her colours come out SO bright, and mine die when I save. I used the same colours, so why do mine fade?? Confusing!
