Page 1 and 2 of an eventual 30 that I laid out during NatCoWriMo. Its called “But, In Reality” and I will probably not post every page to this blog, but rather over here: http://but-in-reality.tumblr.com/page/2
I’ll post some pages over here when I complete a handful of them.
More super quick cloud paintings. Perhaps 20-30minutes of painting the view outside my window, as the light would allow. Most days I am so unsuccessful with this, its not even worth saving, but every couple of times I get something interesting.
Made these for my website, but then in updating my website, I never found a place for them. I may still make a unnecessary contact page for them and polish them up.
While sitting at the auto shop, waiting to hear what repairs my car needed, I doodled the appropriate Pokemon for the month of October.
My car, then received a diagnosis that made me want to die. So….. If anyone would like a commission, maybe you should message me, because suddenly my schedule looks like it would be very accommodating for a few jobs.
So, I’m supposed to be using tumblr to post things that are less than finished, that usually dont see light of day outside of the forums. That means that I’ll be trying to post more, but more of the stuff will be rough around the edges.
This is me trying to get a handle on the mood and setting of my comic for natcowrimo. Still a work in progress.
I was doing some quick warm ups, using the apparently constantly epic sunsets that occur in late summer in texas. I guess now that “fall” is rolling around, the sky is way less interesting, but it is still in the 90s, so who knows.
Painting the sunset requires about 20minutes of “Oh shit” focus where you realize the light is going to change every five seconds, but you want the good light because that’s sooooo much coooler.
Feels good to paint fast though!
I’ve just moved to Austin, and so I’ve been introduced to these little asshole birds called Great-Tailed Grackles. They are like little crows, opportunistic, smart, will totally push a finch out of the way for that bread crumb you just threw. I want one as a pet, a giant one that would hang out on my shoulder and scream at people and take their change….
……….Anyway, I haven’t named this guy, so for now he’s “grackle guy”
