Accidental Art

My version of accidental art is when the CAD program does what it wants instead of following commands.  Artios does this all the time because we have an older version… and I hate it.  Once in a while the preview function of the fillet in solidworks is beautiful. I’ll screen capture it next time.  Then again whenever I can do anything successfully in solidworks it’s beautiful :).

Rabbit

I started a portrait drawing then painted the face.  Felix tweaked it a bit and added the background.  Fun collaboration.

At first I really thought I nailed the colors in the face, then I zoomed out and was mildly disappointed.  Trust me get down in there and there are loads of color layers happening! Work darker next time Bliss!  Listen to Felix!

Weeping Angels

The sketchdaily theme for today was 28 Days Later or zombies or concrete.  I picked concrete and did a study of some weeping Angels from Doctor Who.  I used some new brushes trying to get that concrete feel.  These are the brushes Felix loves to use that I just can’t get a handle on.  Coulda worked longer on it but today is cleaning day and I am actually going to clean instead of procrastinate.

In addition Illustration Friday’s theme was reflect, soooo I reflected the image for a sneaky double post.  Yes the lighting doesn’t make any sense but you know neither does the Doctor.

Owls

owlsmWe only have one tablet and as of late I have felt overly attached to drawing with it.  Felix has a great portrait he is working on so I braved the great big world of drawing on paper.  How quickly I got stuck to the tablet and all of its digital glory!  Well here is my late night drawing. The first in a long time.  I didn’t know how to start so drew the bottom phone first, which has multiple giant cracks in it (Just like in real life). Good fun and a great reminder to loosen up and go back to my pre-digital roots.
