I asked Facebook what I should draw today, and this is the one I picked:
5×7, painted with ArtRage. About 1.5 hours.
Two orphaned sisters, making income whatever way they can.
This is a birthday present for my sister. Her word for the year is “OVERCOME.” Painted in ArtRage and Photoshop.
I just installed the latest version of ArtRage and thought I would get some more practice with it. I really do love the natural paint texture you can get with the tools.
Anyways, Mary Poppins has been on my mind and so I felt inspired to get a little Victorian.
A live-action of AG Bear, a stuffed animal I’ve had since I was around 5 years old.
A new work in progress, the color rough. Tried something new with this one. I created the landscape in Sketchup first, and then used that as my light/perspective reference.
It’s dinosaur week on /SketchDaily/ which is fun because I don’t think I’ve ever really drawn dinosaurs before. Dragons, yes. Yesterday’s theme was pterodactyl, which, having now spent some time trying to draw one, I feel is like the dodo bird of the dinosaur family. So ugly and awkward. Since I lean towards the cute aesthetic, I floundered a bit. Here is the drawings I did yesterday:
Bah. I couldn’t seem to get it right. The bottom ones just look like really cute bats. I still had fun drawing them, and it was good to be out of my comfort zone.
Today’s theme is Albertosaurus, cousin to the t-rex. With Mr. Albert, it finally came together, and things started to click. I am much happier with how he turned out.
I thought I would give another go at Mr. Dodo-bird, and yes, I like him much better than yesterday. And he just looks so pleased with himself.
