Some progress made. I still need to fix those hands. Today will be face and hands day because that is bugging me tremendously. I could play with the drapery all day and those hands will not stop mocking me. I scribbled in some hair areas. I will go in and define that stuff later. I got a much better photo to work with (Thank you Nickel from Wetcanvas!) and discovered that there is a lot more details in the face and hair, as well as the drapery. It is kind of handy to have both images to work with. That way I get a good grasp of the values I am looking for.
I am being forced to put a sheet over this when I am not working on it because I keep wanting to do a drive-by fidget. Getting into the zone is just too easy on this one. I have not kept track of the time I have put into this, but I can honestly admit to one burned dinner. I will keep track of that instead. You know that this has the zone suction attribute when I get a box of art supplies in from Dick Blick and I don't even bother to open it until the day is done!
I am hoping to get to the point of getting paint on this canvas by the time the weekend is over. I don't want to rush it and if it doesn't happen, that is okay. That just means that I spent more time with my husband and kids than I did with the Woman With a Lute.
Playing with some of the inking tools in #clipstudiopaint I am learning to really appreciate this program more as I get used to using it.This is no one in particular for no particular purpose. It's just handy to have some random images for NPCs. My #happyDM is pushing for color. The job is never done. #dungeonsanddragons #digitalart #illustration
Eternal Wait - I finally quit fidgeting with this one. It is #graphite on 8.5x11 smooth bristol board. It is nice to get something to a finish. No matter where I roam in media, graphite will always be my true love. I will be taking this to #Shakedown3 this weekend if you want to see it in person. #art #artist #drawingvia Instagram
Toxic - This is a journal entry before words are added.The topic of toxic people has been coming up in many discussions lately. This is how I think it would look if you could make a visual image. This started as a simple form study and ended up as this. #journal #art #artjournal #selfcare #toxicpeople #getitoutofmyheadvia Instagram
Number 3 in my quest to complete #inktober2017 I started with an ink wash and then used my Microns to accent the details. This is definitely an experiment worth repeating. It reminds me of the interior illustrations in books when I was a kid It is #ink on #watercolorpostcard #art #artist #drawing #illustrationvia Instagram
