Photo Editing

Sometimes I like to play around a bit with photo editing.  Simple color adjustments only slightly touch the things you can do with Photoshop.  Everything from faux hi-def to recreating old photograph styles.  Being able to edit your photos is a big part of photography.  Rarely do we get a photo straight from the camera that is awe inspiring.  Though, there are a few that CAN do that… and I don’t think I can ever manipulate my camera to turn out photos like the masters.  So I have to fake it haha ;)



This one, for very obvious reasons, will not be going into the upcoming artbook. This was drawn for a private collector who is a very big Nine Inch Nails fan. I have been looking for a reason to draw this man for a long time. And I do believe the next piece will be of him, as well.  I already have the pose in mind. 


Reaper [Draw this Again]

I drew this reaper about 10ish years ago.  I have seen several people using this drawing in their compilation videos and stuff, so if you’ve seen it running around, yep, it’s mine.

I wanted to include it in the book I am creating, but I can’t find the original piece.  It is around here somewhere, but it just seems to be avoiding me.  I scanned it a LONG time ago, but… the scan is WAY too small to be used in a book printing.



Photo submission reference from Ann Montgomery.

During this drawing, the cutest thing ever happened. I was sitting at the coffee shop drawing. A chick taps me on the shoulder telling me how good she thinks the drawing is. Then said “you really should sell these!”  Lol if it were only that easy. I giggled a little and thanked her. ?

If you’d like a photo to be drawn and included in the book, be sure to get your submissions in, too.


Down Time

I’ve just been stuck in a down-time; I’m not quitting lol

This week, I am going to take a trip to the local coffee shop with my paper and pencils.  Maybe I can find a little comfort in being out of the house for a little while. Even if I am just drawing on Trading Cards, at least I will be drawing!

This photo just spoke to me on a pretty personal level, so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to work with it.  She is a lovely model!  I have used her likeness before in an older, full body piece, and will be happy to work with her again in the future!
