She’s coming along!
once in kindergarten a girl asked me to write “super girl” on her arm since i was the only kid who could write so i wrote “shit” on her arm and i hid under the table for like 30 minutes then the teacher found me and yelled at me then called my parents and my dad laughed so hard he cried
This is like, the best thing I’ve ever heard.
Today’s digital painting work. It’s a mermaid. She’s got a full body and stuff, but I really just was working on the face today. I messed around with the colors a LOT today, and I know that’s part of why it’s been taking so long, but man! This is time consuming! Well, so is drawing, but this is taking longer than I like because I’m not accustomed to it yet. Grumble.
The truth is that I can draw stuff up like nobody’s business. I have some serious drawing chops. What I DON’T have (and really want) is the ability to just draw stuff up from my head on photoshop. Idk why. My proportions are always just screwed up.
I came to the conclusion that the reason I draw well with traditional media because I practice, practice, practice, practice ALL the time at it. I have not practiced at drawing in photoshop, hence, I think, my issue. So today I went to the coffee shop to start the long journey of practicing photoshop painting. Thus I give you: Girl in White Shirt on Barstool.
When Sandy Patangay left her home country of India to come to the United States, she never dreamed that she’d one day be able to bring something so special from her native culture to eager New York City consumers. After having completed her masters and begun working on Wall Street, she turned her sights away from the corporate world and began to channel her true passion - henna design - into a project that has become incredibly successful in an incredibly small amount of time. Transmuting traditional henna designs onto a whole new medium, Sandy creates beautiful cakes, cookies, and macaroons that have earned critical praise from some of the most renowned culinary experts. Thinking back on her decision to take this step in establishing her own business, she says:
So many times, I asked myself, whether this was a stupid move — walking away from a secure job to sell cakes. But now I can see I didn’t waste a single day. While I loved what I was doing on Wall Street, there’s only so much you can do to climb the corporate ladder. And how many people actually end up being the CEO? But when you follow your passion, the possibilities are endless.

This is amazing a beautiful.
I wanted to bring back Space Bunny. She’s a character of mine that never quite got off the ground, but she’s dear to my heart.
I know there are a good few issues with this drawing, but I did it in pen, so there was no going back. All in all, for a 30 min sketch, I’m pretty pleased.
Tonight is apparently posting photos Fromm sketchbook night.
This is a doodle I did a while back with my prismacolor percentages of grey markers.
As a side note, I think the government taxes the shit out of you there. But on another side note, I think most people there don’t work more than 30 hours a week (because they seem to understand that more than that just makes people kind of miserable) and many people live communally and they have the lowest rate of depression there. Happy teachers, non-capitalist, social (but not socialist) and people have time for their hobbies and shit. Oh, also its fucking cold there.
I might be okay with checking this place out someday.
This is one of the best design lessons you can ever learn. Straights vs. curves.
