Speed Paintings - Two Bears and a Sky Tentacle

Just some quick Photoshop speed paints. I've had some inspiration somewhere in the back of my head wanting to get out. Not sure what it is yet, but this is an attempt at trying to find it. :D

Oh, also, Renae and I bought a house! We're so excited. We fell in love with this house months and months ago, but couldn't make anything happen. We thought we'd be staying in the rental forever, but something finally came through. We move in October 1st, just in time for the holidays!! You can read more about that here.

Thanks for lookin'!

Illustration Friday - "Worry"

* Click for larger *

Felt like doing something more like a pencil drawing, but this was still done in Photoshop 7 with a tablet.

Oh, and in case you're wondering why she's so worried about her pimple, it's not. It's a worry wart. Get it? hahah! I'm clever. ;o) That's why there's also a face on the wart. Because it's worried, too.

Yeah ...

Thanks fer lookin'!

Illustration Friday - "Wide"

* Click for larger *

Took a few minutes to work up the newest Illustration Friday from the prompt: Wide.

This one was a tough one. The really broad topics usually are. My brain shut down and all I could think of was a wide head. Kinda looks like Stewie from Family Guy or Arnold from Hey, Arnold!.

But, I do love a good wrinkly, oddly-shaped head painting. So there you go. ;o)

Hope you enjoy. Thanks for stoppin' by. Have a good day!

Illustration Friday - "Electricity"

* Click for larger *

Wow, so it's going on a year since my last post. A lot has happened since then. Lots of work. But, also two identity theft problems that kept our bank account locked to us for a month at a time. Kinda hard to pay bills or ... eat when they do that to you. Following that was the Ice Storm which knocked out our electricity for almost a month, up until a few days before Christmas. We finally started getting through that when we got some happy news; Renae and I were going to have our first baby together. But, to our dismay, the pregnancy ended in miscarriage about 7 weeks in. It's been a really trying time.

So, you can see what I haven't blogged. But, moving on from all of that, I would like to start it back up. What better way than with an Illustration Friday prompt: Electricity

Trying to kill two birds with one stone here. I need to work up some samples for Marvel, too. I think I'll be finishing the rendering on this painting and I'll repost it when I do.

I hope to keep up with these from now on, though it will always be tough. So many projects, so many experiences, so little time.

Anyway, thanks for looking, and reading if you made it through all that. Hope you enjoy and come back for more.
