We 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.
Snowy day. Boyfriend at work. Listening to the radio and trying to practice after a long absence. Reference.
I was tidying and sorting through some stuff when I came across my portfolio from college! Some of the paintings are horrifically embarrassing but some of the images I still have some fond memories of making.
I am sharing my favorites as to not let these get lost into time. The originals are long gone and all I have are some printouts that magically haven’t been destroyed since 2005.
This one was always one of my favorites as I loved painting the animals at the time. This was a set of behemoths (green) in the hold of Noah’s ark with some friendly rhinos, a hippo, some weird looking elephants, and an ugly bug.
This skydiving dog got me a lot of praise at the time. I think it was the personality/face of the dog.
So I have not been posting recently because I have been super busy with some freelance work! Yay! I have been creating some 3d renders and Solidworks models for two different companies on top of trying to get some personal work done, volunteering with Chicago Bike Buddies and having a full time job. I love being busy.
An old sketch from the past did pass my way and I thought I’d share. A few years ago i was into combining human anatomy with other things, mainly plants. This one however I tried to combine metal with anatomy on an 18x 24 or whatever sheet. It is totally lost for the ages and only a crappy phone pic left! I’d love to make and finish some like this.
