Digital Locusts

So I'm teaching myself how to digitally paint. This is my locusts girl from the watercolor piece as a digital painting in progress, and so far I really like it.

Must Use!

I found this weird piece of furniture on stumble upon, and I just have to fins some way to use it for a painting. What could be weirder/more perfect for a picture than a chair made out of taxidermy sheep!

Progression of Next Watercolor

Sorry for the blurriness, the lighting was bad where I took this picture on my phone. But this is the under drawing for my next watercolor piece, so far it is colored pencil, regular pencil, and ballpoint pen. Have another one I also started today, but the drawing stage is not done yet, although maybe it would be interesting to post pictures of the progression....hmmm. Well ,here's this one for now anyways. I gotta hit the hay.

The Locusts Girl

So I haven't done watercolor in a while, so here's my first attempt after a while. Its watercolor over pencil, colored pencil, and ball point pen.

Studio Space!!

I finally turned an extra room in my house into a studio space! I'm so excited!! Now I can finally have my own area to paint, without having to worry about family/friends/or dogs distracting me. I love them all, but it's hard to concentrate when they are around since when they are I just want to drop everything and do something with them. Well, not anymore!

Here's an under-drawing for a watercolor piece I'm doing. Have to add more bugs

I unfortunately somehow mysteriously hurt my hand yesterday night, so I was not able to work on the second drawing I had in mind to the extent I wanted, otherwise I would have posted it as well. But here's a description of it: a deer with tree branch antlers. Oh, and owls.

Possible Publications

Looks like I may have found more people to publish me! Added to the list: Morpheus Tales Magazine and Plant Healer Magazine, and then for possible book cover work down the line we have Screaming Dreams Press. Hope all goes through because that would be awesome!

Some other bites I've had: Alt Noir Magazine, KRiSPY MAGAZiNE, and Strange Weird And Wonderful

Something In Progress

This is for a poem I wrote. I will post the poem along with it when it is finished. I need to keep making more personal pieces because I have 3 gallery shows I'm supposed to be doing starting in the Fall.
