It's been tough finding the time and motivation to paint, lately. So, tonight I sat down and decided to work until I had... something. I started this sketch about a week ago, but hadn't added color. I think this took me about three hours, total?

I don't feel like talking much about the subject of the painting right now, since I'm more focused on the technical aspects of the painting. I feel that my composition could have been better. It was pointed out to me once in a critique that I often have the same sort of POV in most of my paintings, and I can see that here, too--but I think that's something to work on next time.

Is it February, already?

Oh, man, guys... The holidays just kind of disintegrated. I'm not really sure where all the time went, but I did make some art, between my last post and now.

This month has been fun, though. I've been working a lot but I also took some time to do something different and fun, artistically. DeviantART had a Valentine's Day community project, so I decided to join in and created a set of cards featuring animals, and challenged myself to do something unusual or stylistically different with each one. As the challenge went on, it also turned into a challenge to see how cute and sentimental I could make weird critters.

I admit, the honey badger Valentine was not very original, in terms of concept. But that drawing popped into my mind, and I had to do it.

Most of these are vector and/or vexel, with the exception of "I just want the be LOVED" and "Scientifically Accurate Philosoraptor."

Happy Halloween, everyone! Enjoy some yōkai for the art prompt.

I'll add work from everyone else in the group as it's posted.

Art Prompts!

So, after a bit of talking, Kaiser and I have decided to start doing some art prompts. The more the merrier, so feel free to join in--especially if you're a BG student or alum!

This week's prompt is "something scary." Any media you choose is acceptable. Posting your work by Halloween would be ideal, but you can give yourself a full week (or more) if you like.

These prompts aren't a contest, or a competition. It's just a way to keep your creative juices flowing and have some fun with other artists. Once you've finished the prompt, post your art on your blog, deviantART, website, etc. If you want to share it with everyone, just comment on this post with a link to your image.

And now, enjoy some music.

Bats and Animals!

As promised, here are the concepts that developed into Alba. Also, here are some stylized animals.
