Fairy Girl

This is a little drawing i did for my niece. Sam (My Professor) is offering a contest of sorts, anybody can submit a picture to his blog ( he will choose one to paint. Let's hope that he picks mine, otherwise, I will paint it myself. Either way, results to come!

Finally, with a lot of work, and a lot of help, comes a little happiness. Special thanks to Sam Nielson, Adam Ford, Joe Olsen, and Dillan. Thanks for answering my questions and showing the way. Man this sounds like i just received an award. Goes to show how pathetic my life is. Still, this has gotten me excited to do more.

Sneak Peak

So here is a sneak peak at what's next in our assignments. The criteria was for us to design a character, and then paint it. I have no idea what i was thinking so don't ask, my wife thinks i am disturbed enough. However, after watching about Humboldt Squid on the animal planet i have learned that they have one of the largest eyes in the animal kingdom, and are one of the most aggressive animals in the ocean, (tell that to a Great White). Yet, these creatures, and older folks alike, need love too. Now i will have to apply various color to this. I hope it turns out!

Starting Over

So apparently a lot of people have let me know that i never update my blog. Well sorry if i have a life. Actually i don't, it is shear laziness, and lack of self motivation, .....and confidence. I am however taking Sam's Class, to learn and harness digital painting. Other than my Frankenstein cactus this is one of my first paintings. We were only aloud to use one color and paint with all the values in it. Hopefully i get better.

Here is the drawing that was given to us to start
