Not Quitting My Day-Job

Every now and again, I like to draw - hindered somewhat by the fact that I'm not very good at it. I also prefer to have something to draw from, which is a problem when photos are copyrighted, etc ... I feel a bit "off" claiming it. Also complicating matters is the fact that I feel the urge to "fantasy up" everything I draw. Anyhow, I've gone through another phase, and thought I'd post a few for the heck of it.

Old work:

I really liked the inverse shading I had to do with the pastels for the second one, so am planning on trying something similar.

Currently, some found objects from my house: Rocks.jpg

And I felt the overwhelming need to fantasy-ize this one by making it anthropomorphic:

This next one, I was initially going to do three ways (pastels, pencils and digital), but I couldn't get the lines distinct enough to "work" them on the computer. So: Musician 2.jpg Musician.jpg

I had a huge rant prepared about how the background of the second one was supposed to be a carpet, so expansive that there wasn't really a horizon in the perspective, but it turned into a psychadelic trip ... but *then* the carpet color didn't really get picked up by the scanner.

So. Yeah. Not an artist.
