Christmas Candies

I thought these were gossip worthy considering how much time and effort was put into making them. My mom made almost everything I just helped with the cookies and other little things. We made mint chocolate almond bark, peppermint bark, cookies and cream fudge, peanut butter fudge, chocolate cherry fudge, peanut butter brickle, ginger bread men, chocolate chip cookies, brownies, and white chocolate tree's. As far as my art work goes expect another red ridinghood painting soon and maybe a gingerbread illustration.

Final #2

This is the final piece being shown in my book dummy. This is also a submission to Illustration Friday (to sink back in a chair). After twelve tries on the face I don't think I'll ever be able to look at this painting ever again. I thought of making another but with the amount of time left I'm not sure if that's possible. I still have about half the book to draw out and finish before new years. Lets hope I make my personal deadlines to avoid last minute craziness.

Final #1

So this is one of the two paintings. It took a day longer then planned because i used cheap watercolor paper and basically half of the first layer of paper was peeled off when I masked it. I fixed it by gluing it back together with gesso and lucky for me it looks better with the mistake. Sadly i don't think i'll be able to use my original wolf with this one. They both came out with different personality's and they are three years apart so looks like its time for a new wolf. Enjoy.

Red Roughs

These drawings are the foundations for my next two and final paintings for my book dummy of red riding hood. If I have extra time I will go back and create another painting since the composition is similar between these two (will see). Both were done in 4h so I tried my best to touch them up in Photoshop so you get the idea.

A Winter Update

After a mini vacation this past weekend I am starting to feel my art motivation return. I did try to finish this painting for a They Draw And Cook competition but I just didn't have the time to get it in by midnight yesterday. I did submit it for their website but its not the greatest (A little too rushed). For the next two months expect me to post every 3-4 days. This is the month I'll be trying to finish my portfolio and website and have everything ready for the conference in January.
