Okay, so I know he's just a larper, but look at his feet guys. HIS FEET ARE TOTALLY NOT TOUCHING THE GROUND!!! He's walking on air. Burn him!!! Kill him with fire!! He's a witch I tells ya! Anyway, this dude is a larper who was in a parade and the camera caught him at just the right instant to catch this fun pic. Oh, and if you see this man, please don't hurt him. I was onlhy playing earlier. I shouldn't have to say that, but people are crazy, so...

I got off on my count, so you may notice there are two white squares adjacent to each other. Oh well. The lines are a little crooked as well, just I did this free hand and didn't use a ruler or anything. It's a good thing I don't make any claims at being good at this. Still I think it turned out ok.

You can probably guess what celebrity's photo this was modeled on. Tried to put the right side in shadow, didn't really work out that well for me. This may be the first time though that I used a celebrity photo as a model and the celebrity was recognizable when I finished. Haven't been practicing as much as I'd like lately due to being caught up with other things. Got to get back on track.

It seems there is something that people love about the pure and chaste girl doing something "naughty". Looking at the picture with her closed eyes and the bent cigarette, I thought about writing a story to go with it, but thought it was more fun to let it tell it's own story. Maybe you have a story for it that you'd like to share?

Just a woman thinking the deep thoughts of life. What happens after this life? Why does evil exist? Where did I leave my keys? I think this one turned out pretty good. Some of the pencil marks were light and almost didn't scan, but in spite of this I think this may be my best drawing yet.
A quick sketch I did of a naughty angel. I thought I liked it, but now that I see it here I see like a million mistakes. Oh well, it is what it is. Actually I kind of rushed this one.I should have spent more time on the wings. But this was really more of a doodle anyway. Maybe at some point I'll do a more fleshed out version.

my favorite comic books.
Another shot of the crowd at Mardis Gras. There is a lot actually happening in this picture. Kids grabbing for beads, the lady about to put on one string. You can see part of a parade float, but alas not one of the interesting ones. There will be some of the parade itself to come.
I had a little trouble with the mouth on this one, but overall I like the way it turned out. Of course, part of that may be because it's a bit naughty. I like art that is suggestive without being graphic. And boobs are fun to draw, but that comes as no surprise.

Another rocky hilltop. You may have noticed by now that barren landscapes and dead trees hold as much fascination for me as do lush forests and blossom laden bushes. This time of year it is the former that tends to be more available, so that is what dominates my photos for now. For those of you who prefer greener nature shots, fear not! Spring is coming soon.
dark side of Star Wars, the Droids and Ewoks cartoons, and that time the Muppet Show predicted the future of the Star Wars franchise.
I had a tough time with this picture. I had a shot in mind, but I couldn't get the angle I wanted without losing some visibility of the barn. Unfortunately there is a major highway about 2 steps back from where I took this. Otherwise I think I would have gotten the shot I wanted. As it is, it is almost right.
I liked the cowboy silhouette, so I decided I'm going to do some more of those. Unfortunately once I scan them in flaws that weren't so noticeable in the pencil and paper version become very obvious. Still, I like the look of these, and it is easier than drawing in all the detail.

The names for the posts are starting to have less, to do with the actual content of the pictures, because let's face it, how many times can I call something Woman's Face? Also, there was something about the picture that to me suggested someone who was trying very hard to be fabulous.
I draw a lot of women's faces, I know, but what can I say? I like women. This one is better than most I have done, but I still have a hard time with the nose. I named it after a Beatles' song because I love the Beatles, even though the picture's not good enough to warrant the association.
