R & R

I'm feeling quite rejuvenated this summer. The sun is out all through the week and I've worked myself into an art-craze. I haven't managed to get many of my other friends to contribute to the Summer Sketch Group with the same vigor, but oh well. I'm making my own fun.

I started teaching art privately several weeks ago. I'm liking it a lot, and I'm hoping to pick up more students in the future. I'm pretty sure I'd be able to handle teaching classes even after school starts up again.

Just a quick loose doodle.

This was my submission to the Summer Sketch Group's Draw My Character Activity... I wanted to let the next artist choose to show what might be in the bag she's hauling around through the desert.

Started as a doodle and eventually turned into a late-nighter. I worked up some nostalgic feelings watching Castle in the Sky and Naussica, so the theme of flying and adventure has been on my mind lately.

This one I started out a LOOONG time ago. It went a lot of different directions over the many months I tweaked it off and on... I don't usually do this kind of linework.. Not sure I'll do this kind of style very much, but it was fun to paint a quick cityscape and take a crack at rendering with multiple light sources.

So I've definitely got to do more observational drawing... All of my people look the same. Bugs the hell out of me...

... That shouldn't be a problem in my next post, coming up soon!
