Quick Draw: If Elvis were blond...and a bird.

We were going to try and exaggerate birds today, but no one ended up REALLY exaggerating. We'll have to try that again.

Quick Draw: Artemis

Today's topic: Emulation of Heidi Smith crossed with Greek Mythology!
Cool, huh?
It took me much longer to finish this than Al and Stacey, but it was really fun! I couldn't help myself.
I don't think this is anywhere close to finished either. Hopefully, I can try again later too.

Quick Draw: Monkey business

We're starting a new project at work that involves monkeys! They're a lot of fun. We did some concept stuff for it today. Stacey has a wicked cool technique that she used for her piece. I decided to test it out too. It was definitely an exercise in shape.

Quick Draw 8: Stonehenge

Today's topic: Stonehenge.
Oh my gosh, I feel like I just vomited into photoshop and saved it as a jpeg. Gross. But... the clouds were fun! And... I learned a bit about brushes. So it wasn't a total waste, I suppose.

One day, I'll be a real artist! No, really.

Quick Draw: Negative Space

Today's theme: Using negative space to draw an animal.
We drew for close to an hour today. oops. This was stinking hard, though! I have so much respect who can actually do this kind of art. Negative space is a tricky beast.

I don't know if mussels can actually grow/foster/whatever it is oysters do with pearls, but THIS mussel is breaking the barrier!

Quick Draw #5

After a slew of dismally unsuccessful Quick Draws, today I think I had a little breakthrough! I actually like it.
