Tea Tree

A few concept sketches for a new project. I'll do more of these but I think I like the upper right idea best right now. Maybe pull back more so I can make more of an enviro .

Off Hiatus

Long time no see huh? I had some family stuff to take care of but I'm back now. I managed to make more of a backlog of sketches now so I will have little excuse not to post.

This sketch is for a digital painting I've been working on for awhile. When I drove back and forth from Ringling to visit family I always passed by the town of Mango. It always made me think how quirky it would sound to say "I live in Mango!" Yes I am easily amused. I've wanted to sketch this for awhile but only got around to it recently. I'll post the finish on my DeviantArt account.

Aug 1 -Shift the Ape

This is a few days old from a project I'm working on for my boyfriend. He asked me to do a piece from one of my absolute favorite series of books, the Chronicles of Narnia. I'm happy to do a piece for him anyway but that just makes it better. He wanted a scene from The Last Battle with Shift the Ape. At one point in the story the Telmarines capture a couple of the main characters and bring them to Shift who is impersonating Aslan and sitting in front of a shack. He's a smarmy little bugger. Funny thing is, whenever I read this part of the book I get the same image in my head as my boyfriend did when he listened to it.

Anyway, this is just the value study. I'm still working on the completed piece.
