Trying Different Things.

In all my four years of art training you would think I would understand the value of a dollar. That is beside the point of the today's sharing. Like I have said before, to those who follow my blog, I am just beginning to understand color, color combinations, and most importantly photoshop. I started a piece a week or so ago and saw that I didn't finish it(not new for me). However, I finally was able to use a scanner which surprising inspired me to finish the project. I wanted to make something "fun" and "clean". I stress clean and fun because these are things I am not known for. I tend to get ink all over my finger tips and some how manage to avoid hospital visits from the ink fights I get myself into, which leads to dark and sometimes uncanny images. Along side this personal project of mine I have noticed that the work that I get now is more demanding of fluidity, but not the usual crash, boom, tada, that I usually perform which is mainly self-propelled by instinctual mark making (which is a elaborate way of saying I don't know what I am doing most of the time). At first I was put off by the idea that I am changing it up so early out of college, but then I realized that I could use some verity, and this is the hard part to me about freelance thus far: Trying to find the motivational part of a project that might not seem so enthusiastic. Do I have the answer? heck no! haha! But while I try to figure it out a sugar free answer I hope you enjoy my update.

This image is in progress (Hint: The one I didn't finish). These are just a couple of close ups. Thanks for stoppin' by and reading my ramble! be easy amigos!

A Lot At One Time

So as you can see I have been lacking with the updates. I am just going to lay down some sketchbook stuff, because my scanner is small enough to fit these pages in it. I was told by a buddy of mine that when you are having motivational problems you should focus on drawing subject matter that interest you; that you know for a fact you enjoy drawing. I find that to be true for me when I draw portraits. It use to be bikes, but now it's definitely portraits! I have more to post but this will have to do for now. Hope you enjoy! thanks for stoppin' by amigos

Sketchbook Dumpin'

A promise is a promise. I decided that since my freelance demands what I usually post, I would work and post things that feel different from what I get paid to do. I have rediscovered my sketchbook by-the-way. Hope you like what you see! There will be more to post. Maybe tomorrow? Thanks for stoppin by
