Hearse designs

Yeah these were experimental and wierd- they didn't end up at all like i wanted- but oh well i think i may color or redesign some more. theres were very intuitive- and i should have worked out the stuff more oh well.

Painting with limited color was really neat- but hard - perhaps do some more to get the hang of it.

Barnboy feed the animals

started this one at 9. really happy with how it came out. trying to push myself to get my drawing out of the sketchbook and paint more of them.

i wanted to do this one last night but i fell asleep because i had a headache- but im glad i woke up early this morning.

back lighting is always hard for me- when i don't put the character in total dark face- afraid the face looked to flat- but didnt want to draw too much attention- since its more on the animals ;-)

not really sure does this look like morning or afternoon?

here is a sketch which i scribbled on the train- i know its so vague- but for somereason i see all of it- mostly working on composition because i just need to pick stuff with better composition. should have added a cool fill- but i was lame and didn't because i didn't want to think that hard. so the range is unbalanced

mirror time

this was rough - tried to do it in color but i had such bad lighting in my house- didn't have my normal adjustable spots-

yeah i started having problems adding color to this- the values are so subtle its hard- unless i start out doing it already.

the wonders of bar hopping

Hahaha this is a little more sarcastic- than i intended but still very true.

on a side note - spent some fun nights with scotty out in sf this weekend. very crazy and very fun. it felt really good to wander unfamiliar places with very familiar old friends.

yea this is one of the vies from outside my window. not much ehh? well its not really a direct view- its all angle slanted. there is a nice building and sky line but i can't bring my computer over to the window.

so the last piece was really bad so now i have to get back to painting/drawing again. ;p
