Day 13 – Drawing Valentine’s Fun

I totally forgot tomorrow was Valentine’s Day and remembered I wanted to make my nephew & nieces each a card. I am mostly pleased with how they turned out, but will still need some time to dry, so please excuse

Day 13 – Test

I finished my name logo, but I’m just putting it here to test as I’ve been having issues with some of my posts not also being added to Facebook, for some odd reason. I initially went with the first, because

Day 12 – More Fun with Illustrator

I really wanted to draw today, but felt, I don’t know, either unmotivated or subconsciously feeling “I couldn’t”. I then figured I would use the melon heart cutouts I helped my sister with for a fruit platter she needed to

Day 11 – Fun with Illustrator – Hello Spider Monkey

  Today I decided to work with Illustrator. I’ve made a few different Hello Kittys last year. An idea I was inspired to make happen through someone else (http://www.flickr.com/photos/josephsenior/).  Mine was done in Illustrator, instead of Photoshop, however, as I

Day 10 – Puff-tastic Update

I was able to remove the decoration from the non-stick foil. It took a little time & patience, of course, so as not to tear it. After looking at it for some time I decided to do one better and

Day 9 – Puff-tastic

Due to the horrendous dumpage of icy droplets from the very depths of Antarctica, I thought to do my thing making a sculpture out of this powdery mess, however after dealing with the wind whilst cleaning the white mess, and

Day 8 – Maya Mess & Quicky Sketch

My initial thing for today was to do a project in Maya, a program I haven’t touched in a little while, just to get myself back into the groove. Well, I realized 2 hours into the project, I made so

Day 7 – Drawing in Darkness

Lesson learned. Always. No. Never draw in the dark, especially if you already suck at drawing straight and mirroring. Yep. Maybe some of you can pick up on this design.

Day 6 – Up All Night

I stayed up to work on some stuff to continue getting my mind off things. To be honest, I don’t know why I procrastinate, as I honestly do get lost working on projects. So, I finally finished my name, for

Day 5 – Repeat, Let’s Try This Again

This isn’t much, but at least it’s something that helped me get my mind of last night. I’m hoping for a good nights sleep, any case. My thing to create was finally finish my background for my site, and here

Day 5 – Inability

I will be unable to so much as muster any art. I had every intention to do something, but something horrible happened on my way home. Maybe tomorrow.

This piece isn’t finished at all and I have done tons of other stuff daily, just do not wish to post for fear of others profiting off my ideas. So, here is my unfinished piece of yesterday. I will work

Day 3 – Crackley Goodness

This picture doesn’t do it justice, but I painted a plastic ornament with green glitter polish, leaving some of the original red paint to show through, then I went over with black crackle polish. Wish it came out better in

Day 2 – Delayed Sketchy Sketch

I was out last night and sketched – or, rather, attempted to sketch Wolverine’s hand. This is what I came up with off the top of my head and a little quick look of my hand. Not bad, I guess.

Azulejos

I made one of these tiles with every intention of giving it to my mother, which I did, but now she wanted another, so I had to attempt to paint it exactly the same way. Semi-successful.

Day 29 – Four Skull Clover

  Sad attempt to a four leaf clover. Initially tried to have 2 skulls per “clover”, but didn’t look quite right, so I used one per. Kinda look like boxing gloves… now I know how to make skull boxing gloves…

Day 26

Didn’t feel much like drawing, nor did I feel very creative, so thought I’d finish a zombie from last year’s calendar.

Sorry for the bad picture. My phone was dead and didn’t think to use my camera, so I used the camera on my laptop. Just a blah kinda moment. Feel tired.

Yeah, sometimes I feel like I fall behind. I ended up at a friend’s house last night to help him change his dressings, then got to talking, in the meantime, felt a migraine coming and by the time I got

Day 12 – Skull & Crossbones Heart

My interpretation of a skull & crossbones. Could use a little work, as well, but once again, not bad from memory.

Something I wanted to create for my little Valentine. Still needs a little work… like color. Not super happy with it, but what are you gonna do without a reference. Not bad for something from memory.

Something great indeed. Pretty proud of this one. Used only a reference for the hand and the heart. Would explain why they don’t look so hot either, as the rest was taken from memory.
