This is cheating a little… This painting is actually a couple of months old. I am trying to keep up with my sketch a day theme, but this week I am wrapping up a huge project and so there’s not much drawing I can actually share. I have 3 commissions that I’m almost finished with that I will share as soon as I have approval on them. Till then…
I really like this painting. When I’m having a rough day on the pages I’ll grab a scrap piece of art board and start painting on it with the dirty water. Usually I try to keep it pretty messy to help me loosen up. I’m starting to realize that when you work like that you’re much more free to be creative and not get bogged down in the insecurities of “drawing it right”. This is a good example of that. My rule is that I’ll keep working on it, even if I “messed up”, until it finally comes to life. I like this process much better.
I’ll probably post a few more of these this week until I can get back to my regular sketch routine. (sorry if you’ve already seen this – I promise to have some new stuff again soon)
Thank you to everyone that has been coming to this site. I am amazed at how many people are even interested. You guys are awesome!
