A catch-all dumping ground for art, sketches, and miscellany.

FUN FACT. I screwed up coloring Sunburst the first time because I forgot about his stockings, so I had to lightbox, re-pencil, and re-ink it. This actually happens to me a LOT and I’ve re-inked single pieces to fix various types of mistakes up to FIVE TIMES before. You’d think I’d learn, but I sure haven’t!!!

Traditional media is suffering. :D

Tools: Tombow Fudenosuke, Copic markers | other tools.

Finished drawings: Rarity | Sunburst

Both originals are still available, along with prints, in my shop.

Some on location watercolor speedpaints while I was in Zhaoqing visiting family.

Most of these are quite a bit off since I was working pretty fast (30-45 minutes each) and couldn’t look both down at the paper and up at the scene at the same time. The bridge painting is also only half finished because I got rained on working on it, but I kinda like how it turned out anyway.

Also, I’m not used to painting outside in 100 F and max humidity…. it’s hard to paint when paint doesn’t dry. :’)

Tools: Winsor & Newton Cotman watercolor travel set, (also squeezed in a bit of Daniel Smith Payne’s Gray before I left since the set doesn’t have a grey) Yasutomo Niji water brushes, some 03 tech penrandom flat brush, Strathmore 400 Series Watercolor paper in 5.5″ x 8.5″.

Process for the destructive impulse

I previously posted the inking process and a short coloring video for the same piece.

DID YOU KNOW: I inked this dude three times because in addition to just inking it twice to start with, I reinked all the lines after coloring it since the marker washes out the blackness a bit ha ha ha…..
