I love when I get excited about a drawing while I'm drawing it. I was looking at David Philip's online sketchbook (here) and got some inspiration to do another profile sketch. This guy's stuff always makes me want to draw more. I really need to start filling the majority of my free time with drawing.

With this one, I laid down the basic sketch, then added some value with the same sized brush. After I drew the little cartoony guy, I felt like punching up the shadows, so I made the brush bigger, and painted over the shadows I had made before, then did the same for the highlights.

Anyway, I hope you like it.

Seal Beaver Rat

Just some really quick, mindless doodles.

... and a photo from the trip to the cider mill.

Tryin' to get back into painting.

I just made my pencil-type brush huge, and started painting with it. It's rushed. It's sloppy. It's kinda boring. But it's practice.

Hair Sucks.

Some sketches before bed.

Tree comes up with some crazy stuff.

But at least it's all really fun to draw. I might end up coloring this.

Zoo day 2

Above are the pictures that most likely won't make it to my site... I just liked them enough to share them.

And these are the pictures I'm more happy with. I should be back to drawing, tomorrow. Let me know what you think of these!

I took over 850 pictures at the zoo today. What's great is that my battery was only HALF dead. That's amazing to me. Most of what I shot was complete crap, so here's what survived the elimination process. Only one or two of these will make it to my site. Hope you like 'em!

OH! And I caught this guy breakin' the law.

Our closest genetic analogues.

Just drawing whil listening to youtube videos again... no rhyme or reason. Just doodles.

Announcements and pictures.

This was shot in a stairwell of B Building on campus. I spent nearly an hour and a half taking pictures on campus today. This is probably my favorite, but that's not saying much... I don't really like it.
And here is one of about 20 shots i got of this squirrel. I thought it was hilarious how she (visible nipples) was carrying all those leaves, so I had to get some shots of her. She was pretty cooperative.

ALSO! I've finally posted my first real post in my new blog, There's a link to the blog in my sidebar, so go check it out! I should be updating that nearly as much as I update this one.

Drawing for Tree

Tree was bummed out, and when she is, I usually draw for her. She told me to draw a whale eating spaghetti. She's a bit of a nut.

OH! and my site has been updated. Go check it out!

Camera, day two.

This, here, is Eddie. I work with him on the weekends. I was amazed by how clearly this picture came out. Click it to see all the awesome detail!

First day with my new camera!

Here are the four pictures of Lilah that I liked out of hundreds that I took. I pretty much only really like the last one. The others are here for my sister-in-law, if she wants them. =-D

And here are some sunsets. I took nearly 500 pictures today, but I hated most of them. Admittedly, I've got quite a lot to learn about my camera. I'll be updating my site, soon!

First Post in my Birth Month!

Just some little doodles I did while listening to some videos. I'm getting my new camera on Friday! So, I'll probably be posting some photography along with my doodles. I hope no one minds that.
