Creative Monday

Spent the evening on this Creative Monday relearning how to do portraiture, but instead of using conté, I tried using brush pens and without initial pencil drafts.  Skimmed through the old life-drawing textbook and tried drawing the many facial features on it.  I was able to sketch them out much quicker, more precise, and the result looked even more life like!

New Daily Routine

Holiday Starts!

Restarted work on a website for my church’s new branch.  The project was initiated last year, but had been on hold for much of the time.  Spent a lot of time on the website this week, it should now be very close to being able to launch, really hope that the project won’t drag on […]
