I've been wasting time trying to come up with something to do. Figured I should just sit down and do it. Found some pics of people online just for portrait practice. This is alright considering it's been quite a while since I last took a stab at a portrait. The sketch was fun. Ball point pen- not my usual tool of choice but my kids seem to have run off with all my pencils. Then I put it in photoshop and played with value. I am finding that whole process enjoyable which is good as I sometimes find myself bored with work. That's all for now. Thanks for coming by. Tell me what you think.


Realizing this could be fun I started playing in photoshop with different expressions. Then I thought, 'Hey, this could be a fun thing for the IF topic: MULTIPLE.' So here you go: multiple expressions. It's a lot of fun- I may keep going all week long.




shock and awe

Happened to accidently surf into your site,...I enjoyed many of your illustrations...especially the little boy drinking water from the hose, and the sad daddy and daughter at the cemetary.

Intersting stuff.

What an interesting character. Nice work with all the expressions.

And just for fun...

I know. You're so excited. You may think this is totally dumb, but if you want to do this, it's a fun way for us to get to know some things about you that we didn't know. So if you have time (which you probably don't), list 5 random things about your self. You can even do sketches to go along with them! Tag 5 people in return (if you should feel so inclined).

So you have the problem with your kids running off with your pencils too? I think it is great at times to just sit and doodle with a good ballpoint pen! Nice job on these, great studies...nice to see people use photoshop as a tool instead of the end all and be all in life...glad to see you back on board.

Awesome! Great expressions, nice variety. I should do more of this myself... but I'm having fun playing around with monster right now, so... I'm also working on getting more of a range of value into my work, which so far isn't working out so hot. I'll keep at it. Jay you inspire me. Thanks!
