The Dance

Since my first ballerina drawing, I wanted to do another. The posture and skin shading was well worth doing again. I thought of trying to go a more traditional route (on a stage), but my pencils said otherwise. There was a LOT of erasing when it came time to do the background portions, but it turned out alright in the end.

This was the final artwork for 2017. The signature was placed 4 hours before midnight. This piece wrapped up a pretty creative year.  The holiday was extremely hectic, so I was only just now able to post it.

Drawing animals makes me nervous!  I had to start this one over, because something was just off… I couldn’t put my finger on what it was, but I knew something wasn’t right.  And if I am not satisfied, I can’t see how a client would be satisfied.  So, I did what any rational person would do.  I got aggravated and tore it up.  I sure felt better afterward, though!

Freya Langford-Sidebottom did a cosplay/makeup art series for 30 days of Halloween in 2017. As SOON as I saw this photo, I knew I just had to get my grubby little paws on it. I might even dive into her photo reserve again in the very near future.

Remember when I said I don’t draw unicorns and fluffy rainbows? Yeah, I can’t say that anymore. Seems I have a whimsical part. What’s happening to me?

It’s October!  Time for some creepy art.  Kirsty always makes fantastic makeup just for the occasion!  You should check out some of her creations.

It was pointed out that this looks like the original character of The Crow by James O’Barr.  And yes, now that it was mentioned, it certainly does!  And I absolutely LOVE the movies, so the book will be mine.  I had never seen the original character until today.  I know, I know, shame on me!  But admission is the first step to recovery!  I will own the book, now.

Book Publishing Update

Sorry for so many posts today!  The gears are really grinding from now until the end of the year.

I wanted to give you guys a little update on the book.  I’ve run into a slight snag.  I have the digital pages all finished up and the book is ready to roll.  I do have a couple of pieces I can work on to still fit in, but the bulk of it is press ready.
