I have an old pencil box full of random crayons. I found that the crayolas had solid colors but cheap random brand ones could give a nice waxy blend on top. I wish I had thought to take a picture of the lineart because part of it is kind of obsured, but it’s not a huge loss. The whole thing to big to scan in it’s entirety and likes to roll up at the ends; it’s about the size of two sheets of 8” x 11” paper or approximately 11” x 17”.
‘Ascension Dragon’ almost done with prismacolor colored pencils…..:
I had to tweak the colors because the scanner made it a washed-out sun-baked version. I’m still fiddling with the background; I should have planned out the background a little better, but I’m proud of the range of purples I have on the dragon. I’ll post the full piece once I’m done.
Been working up a huge pile of works in progress over the summer and I need to guilt myself into finishing them:
Started a peacock painting with acrylics sometime last month. I hope to get more comfortable with painting -since I seem to literally more of a pencilpusher.
Still working on my Handbound book project. I’m thinking of fixing the cover with some cool stencil or something. Maybe a cool branchy tree. I’m also gearing up to write down text on page 13:
Nice pair of eyes.
Also working on my very first sculpture with some exceedingly old original scupley clay. If it had an expiration date, it’s probably way past it by now. It’s consistency it a bit chalky and I’m not sure if its supposed to be like that or it’s spent too many hours in a stuffy room. Either way, I’m hoping to get the feet done, smooth out the face and body, and put a pair of wings on him before baking.
And on the side I have my good ol’ standby- traditional art with pencil, paper, and micron pens for inking. It’s a scaly, two-eyed creature. The more I draw scales the easier it gets. Sure it’s a little tedious, but with a bit of patience, the end result is always impressive.
