Last post of the year.

Well, it took me longer than i would have hoped, but I'm finally back to posting more art. i quite thoroughly lost my motivation there for a while and i'm afraid i don't have it back completely. I'm not really all that excited about this quick painting, but i felt i needed to get something done or else i'd never get back on the horse.

As for this being my last post of the year, i suppose i deserved a little break, this being my 174th one of 2009. rest assured there will be plenty more in 2010.

happy new year everyone!

No, i'm not dead...

...but my old computer is.

So after a week of watching my laptop slowly die, then another week of troubleshooting with the tech people over the phone, only to discover the machine is no longer under warranty, i went and got a new computer today!

so,for those of you who actually follow my li'l blog, you'll be sure to see some more art here real soon.

A quick one done for the latest Chiustream contest, It's Jason Seiler, caricature artist extraordinaire. It Seemed everyone and their brother was drawing him, saw there was a contest, figured I'd give it a shot as well. Whoever wins, gets an original caricature by Jason. I suppose it's a great way of getting a bunch of free caricatures. I've also included a little shot of my process as well.

That didn't go so well...

So, i had the idea to finish off my sketch of Marisa miller that i posted a while back. I've been working on it off and on ever since, i just wasn't feeling it on this piece, i managed to suck all the exaggeration out of her face, I became way too dependent on the eyedropper tool, really struggled with the hair, and totally gave up on the swimsuit pattern and copy/pasted it. A great example of rushing into a project without having a clear idea of what i wanted to do.

While the final product is passable, this painting was a total disaster and i'm actually just glad to be done with it.
