Pretty Pict-chas

By in color, digital, men, paintings, sketches, watercolour, women

Here are some digital and watercolour pictures (and blends of both) that I’ve been doing today, and over the weekend. So many things to tell about these, and there are still challenges, and important things to learn. But what’s most important is that I’m feeling comfy with the tools, and having fun. Above is using […]

Tall and Narrow

By in sketches, watercolour, women

This is the exact format I don’t need to work on my new site. Nonetheless, a couple of miscellaneous watercolours I was doodling in my watercolour book. The woman is a Solid Gold Dancer, the height of femininity in the 1980s. This guy was painted because I took out from the library a book of […]

I inked her and coloured her digitally from a little ball-point pen drawing, and I’m happy with it. I can get more sophisticated as I learn more little tricks. But most of the stuff works, and I can do it in a reasonable amount of time. So, hooray!

Zooey D.

By in digital, pencil, women

Trying to draw portraits. I’m cozy in pencil (not so cozy drawing likenesses!). I wonder if it’s bastardization to try and colour a drawing this way, but I’m also practicing my digital chops. Not the prettiest image, technically, but it’s part of my artistic self-education, so I’m putting it up here. I wanted to draw […]

Some More Painting

By in cats, sketches, women

The digital thing is frustrating, because of all the switches you have to throw (if you start working on the wrong layer, then you’re lost). Also, I keep losing brushes I like. In Photoshop, those are collections of settings and sometimes an image. This can all be solved, but it’s a learning curve for me. […]

More Cats, and Star Trek People

By in cats, men, sketches, women

My sketches have become a little more, um, “sketchy” since I’ve been on this digital art kick. Still drawing, however, and the books are filling up with pencil drawings, actually drawing in all kinds of media, since it really doesn’t matter if I can mess with the lines and colours. So, I’ve been enjoying my […]

Lazy Blog Post

By in men, sketches, women

I’m behind on things, also wasting time on facebook. Still drawing, but not blogging as much as I might. Well, here are some things. First of all, I’m messing around with the “Gaussian Blur” and figuring out what it takes to paint things over a loose pencil drawing in photoshop: It’s from a tacky source […]

Pile of Paintings

By in men, paintings, sketches, watercolour, women

These are simple, but done with different techniques and programs. Up above is purely digital, drawn and painted in Photoshop. The guy below was drawn in Adobe Illustrator according to a pencil sketch, then coloured in Photoshop. I’m happy with the ink lines I’m able to create, and they’re fast to do, too. This strange […]

Passel of Drawings

By in men, sketches, women

I sketch a lot more than I put up here. Thought it was time for some of those. Mainly out of my head, while watching DVDs, or live, in some cases. Those always make the best poses.

Colour Couple

By in men, women

More cartoon colouring. I’ve noted that few people are visiting the blog on Sunday, so I can post today in relative obscurity.

Digital and Ballpoint Pen Critters (and folk)

By in cats, horses, paintings, sketches, women

Still playing with the digital painting. I think I get so carried away with the technical challenge I sometimes forget to make an interesting picture. Hence this horse, not doing much of anything. George Stubbs I am not! Actually, without the “ink” lines, this looks a lot like one of those paint by numbers kits. […]

Woman in a Bikini

By in sketches, women

Yes, she’s in a bikini, but she’s got a personality, so I don’t think she’s just being an object. This is another drawing, in real ink this time, which I coloured with the computer.
