Color studies and lineart

Progress of a new painting...I was planning on this being a traditional painting...but I just love digital and I'm so much better at it :/ We'll see. I'm loving this girls face, though. She's very tender looking... :)

Hey guys!

Sorry for the lack of updates, but I HAVE been working! Just not on a drawing...
ON MY WEBSITE! YES! Oh my gosh, yes! Finally! It's almost out of the way!!!
:) if you want to see it in progress, it's, naturally.

Day 9 early ;)

I was trying to go for a more"storybook" kind of feel for this...I'd like to have something in my portfolio that says "kid" at least a little bit :) I know there's pretty good money in kiddy illustrations. I'm just so happy to be drawing a lot, lately. It feels amazing...I love being able to do whatever I want!

Day 8

Finished! Two differently colored versions. I like the one on the left...or, I dunno. I like both :P Enjoy!

Day 7?

I don't know if it's late, or what, but i'm totally in love with this drawing. The colors here are different than what the buyer requested (she's getting a different version,) but I was too in love to leave this alone in a folder....these are getting a lot harder/longer. I wish I could charge more :(

Day 6

While Kiel cleaned the kitchen (he's a peach :D) I got busy with this commission...
Drawing more realistically is a real bitch. It's hard on me @_@ I might charge more for these in the future...but as for right now....I need the money real bad! Enjoy this progress shot.

Day 3

Tried my hand at oils today after a 2 year hiatus. This is how I feel.

Day 2

Day 2, no booze! I am also currently looking for a dark skinned model that I can practice rendering...I've never attempted painting an African American woman, and I think it would be really fun. Unfortunately, finding high quality pictures of Afro-American models is a lot harder than I thought :/ I need big faces with lots of detail.
But yeah, that's my update for the day! Maybe there will be more if I can go get some oil paint with my mom!

I'm starting a 30 day challenge drinking for 30 days, and working on a drawing every day...and showing proof. And writing about my technique. Maybe I'll work up to a tutorial...even though I hardly consider myself coherent enough to form sentences when I'm drawing. Hehe.
