The Mom Look
My husband named this. I guess this is what I look like when I am scolding the kids. I am thinking about framing this and sending it to college with my son. Then when he is thinking about doing something I wouldn't like, he can look at this and think twice.
I don't usually do a portrait study with my scar forward (above my eye). I don't try to hide it. It makes my eye shape a bit odd, so I have avoided it. I did this in natural light. I like the lighting. I forgot how much I really do like graphite. Something about the hatching is relaxing and refreshing.
I was going to paint, but my inspiration for the day was a self portrait in the Burnt Sienna, French Ultramarine and Titanium White. I decided I would do a quick pencil study to nail the shapes and such. Then once I got the general sketch in place, I couldn't resist shading it in. Of course, once I had the shadows in, I couldn't resist digging in the girls colored pencil to add highlights. .. and by the time that was all accomplished, it was dinner time. Go figure!
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
