Hands and naked people oh my #art #drawing #study #sketch #pencil #figuredrawing #people #gesture #hands

I decided to have a go at Kyle T Webster’s PS brushes today! There’s a whole ton to sort through, but I’m pleased with the ones I tried out so far. Here’s a little scribble I did real quick with the runny inkers. Junie (green) and Little Rock (blue) have been enjoying more time flying around the apartment and they’re starting to open up to me more :)

I also like drawing Junie as a chain smoker just cuuuuuz

Tonight’s forecast: Gustav Klimt and Chvrches

Faster, faster, you won’t go far
Shouldn’t leave, feeling faith, we both know why
You got to show me, both knees, cold I lie
Hold me slowly, hide me till I can fly
Always we can sing, we can make time
Old songs, flood and flame, you could be mine
But you got to show me, both knees, skin and bone
Clothe me, throw me, move me - till I can sell you lies
You can’t get enough
Make a true believer of
Anyone anyone anyone
I can call you up if I feel alone
I can feed your dirty mind
Like I know I know what you are

Chvrches - Lies

venting frustrations between stanzas


I’m taking syllables that I want to lose meaning
And painting them in white up on the ceiling
To swim around the air while I am sleeping
And in the morning they’ll be a little bit blurrier

And one morning I’ll be squinting from my bed
To make out the letters overhead
But they’ve blurred into a cloud up there instead
And I’m inviting you to be white paint I’m inviting you to be white paint

Where do you send things to, when your heart ain’t got no room?
'Cause I'm set on banishing
my undying love
unwavering favor of all the wrong things.

Lauren O’ Connell - White Noise

Did a bit of painting in the forest a while back! Still trying to get a handle on values in gouache… #art #illustration #painting #pleinair #gouache

"What’s the day?"
"What you doing?"
"How’s your food?"
"How’s that song?"
Man it passes right by me, it’s behind me, now it’s gone
And I can’t lift you up cause my mind is tired, it’s family beaches that I desire
That sacred night where we watched the fireworks
They frightened the babies and you know they’ve got two flashing eyes
And if they are color blind, they make me feel
that you’re only what I see sometimes.

break from homework…

i’ve been doing this a lot lately

A quick sketch I did for one of my assignments.

There are a few things I’d change but it was a nice opportunity to study :) I’ve also been fond of using paper textures from the interwebs on stuff lately so I want to make my own soon!


Here’s a piece I did for SHM’s Nintendo Charity Gallery :) I was assigned Poo from Earthbound! A bit more explanation follows here on my blogspot
