Last Symmetrical Sketch (for the moment)



So, this is the last symmetrical sketch from my recent sketchbook excavations!  I guess I better get to work on making more, right? *G*

Experimental


Used this sketch to work on some new painting techniques. I like how some of them came out, and I'm not sure about others, but in general I had a ton of fun with it.  The shadowing could use some work, and I don't think the tattoos sit quite right on the skin, but I do like the texture, and the colors in general.

WIP Wednesday!



So, for this week's Work In Progress Wednesday, I'm posting the first two stages of the new cover I'm making for my novella Getting Ahead.  It's been out of print for a few years, so I'm going to be publishing it to Amazon and so I'm designing a new cover!

Sketches



I haven't mentioned this before, but I've given up on sketching on the Wacom. While I love my tablet for every other artistic process, I *cannot* sketch on it. I just do way better with pencil and paper. No matter how much I practice with the Wacom, it just doesn't feel the same, the stylus just doesn't move the same. So, I went back to pencil and paper and I'm thrilled that I did because I remembered that I *can* actually draw! (The Wacom made me forget.)

The first sketch is from five years ago (way before the Wacom tablet), and the other is from... Last week? A couple of weeks ago? Something like that, and is for a t-shirt design entitled "What Kept You?"

WIP Symmetrical Sketch

Another WIP symmetrical sketch! This one will probably end up in the next coloring book, too. Although, the heart motif needs some tweaking, I think. Hmmm...
