Stories of Old

Colors and composition largely stolen from a Gustave Doré painting. No one uses color like this in mainstream media.

Distant Lands

I found a book of great art by Kay Nielsen, and wanted to try something in his style.

45 minutes.

Feed the Children!

Trying to get back into the swing of drawing every day. We bought a ton of leftover Halloween candy at the store last week!

1 hour.

Trees, Trees

Two drawings today to make up for the lack thereof the past week.

45 minutes each.

This one comes a few days late due to some major internet issues. I'm attending the Chicago International Children's Film Festival through next week, which was gracious enough to accept the short film I was recently a part of.

Fall is Here

All moved in to some temporary housing in the Chicago area. To celebrate, I spent some extra time on today's sketch.

4 1/2 hours, including two restarts.

Medieval House

Probably no new drawings the rest of this week, as I'll be packing and otherwise getting ready for a move to Chicago. Here's an older drawing I never posted.

The Breakfast of Champions

A nice long sketch to start off the week. Motivation remains high when you know you can consume your subject afterward.

1 1/2 hours.

Painter is a Pain

No drawing today as my file got corrupted right after I saved it. I'm gonna try and recover it....

EDIT: I managed to get the thumbnail; that's it. Apparently, Painter X likes to corrupt .PSD files at random when saving them. Which is perfect, since it already crashes at random when I try to work in its naitive .RIF format. I'm beginning to hate this program...

At least you can see what it's supposed to be. Yesterday I was at my first soccer match at the new LiveStrong Park in Kansas City, MO. Now blown up to mega-size for extra pixelage!

1 hour (plus another hour unsuccessfully trying to recover it)

The Bench

2 hours.

Doggie Doggie

I did a kinda lame one for today. Just a little sketch of my dog.


What! Dancing at a party? Unthinkable.

From Sunday, 5/22 (the scripture reference has nothing to do with this scene...)


This was from Friday. A little sketch of my Mom and a friend sewing bridesmaids' dresses for my sister's upcoming wedding!

Back to Drawing A Day now that school's out! I almost missed this Themed Thursday, but fortunately my friend Drew reminded me 25 minutes from midnight.

Day 5

I'm a bit behind! Here's an environment sketch to help get me back on track.

Day 1

I'm starting a couple days late, so here's my first one. I drew this in Chemistry class, and took the head from Sean Cruse who was sitting directly in front of me.
