I'm practicing my skills with Illustrator CS3. Here is something I came up with from a watercolour I decided not to turn into a painting.

So I have a degree in art. I paid an AWFUL lot of money to get said degree. And then I'm requested to do free art for people... I mean. I don't mind a favor for a favor. Example: I have a friend who's amazing at English. I asked him to read over an essay for me. Great! He asked me to do a banner for him for his blog, so I'm going to! See? it's like trading goods. He's good at one thing, I'm good at another, and we trade.

Here is an example of my coworker's dog I drew for her. It's actually the cutest dog I've ever seen. (Yes, that includes my own dogs, and your dog too, if I've seen it.) I've decided it's the last "freebie" I'm giving out, because I like my co-worker and she's helped me out a lot at the job! BUT NO MORE!

This concludes the free art spree. Now my prices are HIGH!!!!

Opinions on this train of thought??

Inspiring interview

I'm watching this interview that I found posted by "KTShy" on Twitter! Here! It's very inspiring... so I sketched the man: Marcelo Vignali. I hadn't heard of him before, but he's a smart, smart man.

More Photoshop

Here is a sketch I did and then coloured in Photoshop. I'm trying to work on my colouring skills, but I find I get so bored with it part-way through. I will keep working on it, however, until it becomes easier. =) I really really want Corel Painter 11, but that costs like $400. Sigh, maybe a back to school present? hehe

This is a character from a comic I'm working on with a friend. We should get it up on the web in April? That's when we're hoping for, but I'm thinking it's going to take a lot longer than that. We shall see, though! This character won't be in the comic for a long time, though. She's just my current fav. ( I have a new favorite every couple of days. It just depends who I'm drawing at the time, I think.)

Digital colour

I'm trying to improve my digital colouring skills. I think I'll do better if I scan in some line-art, but the scanner I currently have is terribad. I am leaning towards buying a new scanner and a new printer, so that maybe, once I get my art rolling, I could sell some amazing prints! But that's all in the distant future.

So anywho, here is a sad fellow, persecuted for standing up for himself. Now in a cage, he is paraded through the dark, gloomy city... ENJOY! <3
