More Digital Painting

By in women

I’m pretty happy with this beauty, and am slowly figuring out brushes in photoshop. Hard to set the ones I like. This took a lot of time, but then again so did the acrylic pictures I used to paint on matte board when I was in High school. Still have one of those.

Blue Period

By in men, paintings, watercolour, women

Happy New Year’s, all three of you visiting this blog! It’s business as usual at Utopia Moment. I’m still playing with my Wacom Intuos, but I also enjoy the old school tools. These are a pile of faces, in gloomy watercolours. I’m very happy that my local art store has returned to stocking this paper […]

New Toy

By in men, women

Sorry for the absence, but I’ve been playing with a new toy. A Wacom Intuous 4 stylus. Still working with it. I’ve used a Bamboo Pen stylus for a while, but though i liked it, the lines were jiggly and I couldn’t really draw with it the way I could with pencils, pens and brushes. […]

Still painting random faces, from DVDs, and my squirming imagination. Kind of enjoying it at the moment. Some bonus kitty-cats as well.

Female Faces…

By in sketches, women

Charlize Theron, from the cover of a movie mag. I’ve been neglecting my blogging. That doesn’t mean I haven’t been drawing. Working on female faces here, trying to catch what’s special in a face that makes it a particular person. Easier to draw a generic face. But when you can’t get out to sketch real […]

Colour Cats and Such

By in cats, men, sketches, watercolour, women

I’m doing comic colouring in Photoshop. Shouldn’t be so difficult, but I’m thinking of it a lot. Then a little watercolour.

Women’s heads and profiles

By in sketches, women

Drawing things from DVDs. Freezing it this time, rather than just going on impressions as the movie plays. A lot of work filling things in with pencil! This and the below are based on Sharon Stone from the beginning of Total Recall. And some random, imaginary profiles with my fine-line roller pen: Good night, all!

Out of My Head….

By in horses, men, sketches, women

That’s where these drawings are from. When winter sets in it’s less practicable to draw things out on the street. So I sit around looking at books, watching DVDs, also drawing anything that tickles my fancy. Hate drawing directly from photographs, but those give you different ideas, and also keeps one closer to reality. So […]

A Kelpie, a Vampire; other things.

By in horses, men, sketches, women

I drew these in black and white, because I’m practicing computer colouring. Seems like a lot of work!

Roller Pen Drawings

By in sketches, women

Could call these “Pen and Ink,” but that seems too grand. The titles become dull also, because of the idea of putting something plainly descriptive in so search engines can find them.

Hard and Soft Edges

By in sketches, watercolour, women

I dislike ink outlines, but am working on hard and soft edges in drawings. Leaving the middles alone in this case, or giving them a gentle wash.

Fast and Slow Watercolours

By in men, sketches, watercolour, women

One of these was painted very quickly, the other very slowly. Which is which? Do you care?
