I UPDATED! No really, I want to, but for some reason I can't gather the words to do so, even though its "safer just to write my whole life down". har har

Amanderz Painting: More Revisions

It's got an overpainting on it so it's not tidy, but I'm not sure how I feel about the progression from the original face. It looks more like her, but on the other hand the original underpainting captured something I think I kinda lost (or let slip). That will happen with any original sketch/underpainting, but still... meh.

I'll ask her about it.

Art Update: More on the Amanderz Painting


So something happened to Brent that made him look like George Lopez. I guess I shouldn't have bothered to work on Brent until I got the concept down (will note that next time). I tend to paint and make things up as a go along. It's not a very good habit of mine, but it works. I did similar with the Bessy painting (kitty painting), but in that one I had a full feeling and I just had to intuitively put it on canvas. I guess that's one way to work.

I've done a lot of sketching, and I need to get those up here. I'm thinking of scanning my sketchbooks (no matter how horrible and good they are) into PDF format and putting them up here. Why? Because even for me, it's kinda nice to go back and see what I've been doing. I need to buy another one, because I just filled up my other small one. I need to ask a friend where she got a sketchbook in Japan, because I fell in love with it's paper. I can't find any bound sketchbooks that have like that paper quality, but it's not quite as thick? It's a smooth smooth surface. I guess it's kinda like Bristol paper for pen work. But you know, I don't know, because I've never used Bristol but as far as I'm aware, that's the difference.
