Pups




So I bought this crappy Crayola sketchbook at CVS today, because I refuse to buy another moleskin Sketchbook. I hate those freakn things, there is to much pressure to do something great, and your constantly bombarded by people wanting to look through it.... awwwhhh. I feel so much safer with a little piece of crap.
You know when you get a new sketchbook and you just have to draw something in it right away??? Well I for some reason wanted to draw dogs. I don't think I've ever drawn a dog in my life but let me tell you, they are really fun to sketch out.
try it some time
OH.. and make them look sad, way more fun when they are sad.....I don't know why .
Sketched out with a pencil then slapped into the computer for tint and color

Snow


THIS IS A PHOTO!! not a painting
well, it's a photo illustration.
So I just completed a photo shoot with the lovely Abbi Ptak
I was going through the photos and decided to start working on an illustration idea.
Well, normally I throw a photo into photoshop and start working out loose ideas to paint from, but the more I played with it the more I liked it. So I just kept going and going. I's to the point where I really don't feel like painting it would do it justice, I feel like it's great the way it is...so what's the point???
I don't know, I might end up painting it but it just seems like a waist of time.
either way, I really like the image I wanted to share it with you all
