two paintings and a monster doodle.

here's a portrait of the beautiful Kyrie Chamberlain. She painted me in a valentine, and I said I'd paint her too. Acrylic, hour and a half.

and this is a BMW bike I painted on a bday card for my boyfriend. watercolour, pen/ink...

i'm still kinda crap at painting vehicles but slowly, i'm getting better.

I think this little guy is going to show up in the near future.... ;)

In other news, I'm hoping to throw together a show in our studio for First Friday in April, a lot like last year's Gun Show. More details to come.

staayyy tuned!

casey jones 1

kind of a quick Casey Jones paint. Hopefully I'll have time to dedicate to an actual illustration some day. But what a cool character. (teenage mutant ninja turtles, btw)

here's the super rough doodle i was fiddlin' with at work.

Datsyuk winking speedpaint

I think it took about an hour, somewhat over?

Oh well. Pavel Datsyuk, of the Red Wings, winking. Because he's disgustingly good. Cheeky bastard.

Ref image snagged off the twitter account @notpaveldatsyuk which is hilarious.

eh, could be better. Still pulling myself out of this art rut hole i've dug myself into.

paint mess

yay i'm beginning to paint stuff i'm sort of proud of again!

Trying to break a long art rut. Little by little, I'm getting there.
Acrylic, hour or so.
here's a SUPER loose warm up sketch/paint mess i did a week or so ago after I went shooting with some friends. That's my boyfriend shooting a Mosin. I fell in love with the AK-47.

I'm in a rut

I'm having an awful go of it lately. I can't seem to paint well at all right now. Nothing's going how I want it to. To say it's depressing and frustrating doesn't even begin to cover it.

Well, here's another struggling failure. I was trying to paint Gil Perreault. It's... not where I want it to be. But again, I figure I should post my failures as well as my successes.

I'm sorry. I'll try to get my ability back soon. I feel like a bird whose wings have been burnt off. or something else metaphorically horrible. I'm really disappointed and I don't know how to break out of it.
