Foxy – Sketchy Sketchy

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

I’m messing around with Windows 7 and seeing if I’m gonna have any problems with some of the programs I plan on using for art and whatnot. Here is a little ditty I did with the Wacom tablet and GIMP…

Starting from Sketch

Monday, May 2nd, 2011

So tonight I decided I’d forgo some TV and sit down, listen to some music and draw. I made it through two sketches, about 20 minutes, before my right hand started to cramp. This was pretty depressing so I found some music to match the mood and powered through one more sketch. I don’t really think the effort was worth it, but I went ahead and scanned these anyhow.

Let’s hope that I can build back up the endurance. Otherwise I may have to nix the dream of returning to art. Well, at least the hand done, non-digital stuff.

Smirk – 9/5/2010

I call it “Smirk”. It’s just a little sketch but it feels like a whole lotta progress!

Last night I took a small break from TV and campaign planning to just draw a tidbit. Nothing big, but I thought it was cute…

Okay, well I’m in sorta a mood today so I’m trying to look for something creative to do that doesn’t involve DND or large amounts of virgin blood. I’ve decided to create a new gallery soon that will be comprised of desktop wallpaper specifically designed for dual monitor setups of my resolution. See, I’ve had a pretty hard time finding desktops that I can use that will span both my monitors and look good. I’ve seen plenty of stuff for normal and widescreen application but very few for my situation. I figure that I’ll take a stab at Photoshop Elements and create then in there using the Wacom tablet, since GIMP absolutely HATES the Wacom 🙁 (Although I may have found a fix for that)

Anyhow, any suggestions for topics or themes? Each desktop will be a unique creation, some abstract and some not… haven’t got a clue yet as to what it might actually entail…

And… I did something to my left hand that makes typing hurt…
