Thanks, David.

David suggested I draw a "shark monster". I find sharks, monstrous enough, but if I had to add anything to them to make them even more of a threat, I would add long, tongue-like tendrils that surge out of their throats and pierce you in the jugular and drag you down toward their open mouths so they may devour you. The day sharks evolve to have any sort of appendages in the day I will never go further than 3 feet deep into the ocean.

another face

I went back into this one, changed some of the hues, and tried to reduce the contrast.

Face Off

Another Photoshop work in progress. I think I'll go into this one and work again.

coffee and medicine

These two are from Descriptive Drawing. A graphite project and a colored pencil project. Yum.

I've been playing around onPhotoshop, lately. Here's more experimentation. Hooha!

So. This is an experiment. I just downloaded the free program, "Art Rage" after hearing a friend talk about it, and I have to say, there are some pros but mostly cons. First of all, it doesn't draw well: the cursor is complicated as it changes from tool to tool, and though I didn't use a wacom tablet for this doodle, I can tell by the way the "medium" drags that it's awkward. The end result has a nice look to it, as far as the paint consistency and marker opacity. Still, I think I would much rather paint digitally in Photoshop....

The Semester is Over

This image is from my last Illustration Project. Book cover for the novel, SABRIEL. It's a great book, by the way.

She stumbled upon a hut that stood on chicken feet

This is an experiment with Photoshop, since the semester has wrapped up and I need to start practicing for NEXT semester. I decided to draw Boneyleg's hut on chicken feet; I had abandoned the idea for one of my projects. It was a fun hour and a half, though my neck now has a crick in it. Is this what I have to look forward to for Digital illustration? :) Regardless, Photoshop is fun, quick, and effective.
