watercolor practice 2

I decided to try watercolor with the sketch I did a few days ago (click). It's on super cheap watercolor paper and I can't say I like the texture. it's not very obvious until it's been scanned.

Getting back in the groove

It's been a while since I drew anything and I made a promise to myself to never let it happen again. This is based off of this photo: (click). I tried to stylize it a bit from the photo. Will probably make this into a watercolor painting later this week.

Portrait study

Haven't drawn portraits in a while. Drawn from a photo. The perspective on this is a little off. Still haven't figured out an effective way to do hair...


More sketches drawn from photos.

Birds and chicks

Just got back to sketching after taking almost a month break from art. The whole moving thing is getting me nervous and making me feeling extremely uninspired. Been just sketches things that looks interesting to me to try to get back in the groove. Drawn from various photos found on the web

More sketchbook pages

just a few pages in my sketchbook. I really need to draw more

watercolor practice

I finally bought my own scanner and it arrived in the mail today. This gives me even less incentive to leave my room....

I forgot how awful red scans...

I got extremely frustrated with painting clothes so I kind of just gave up on it...I'll save it for a different day. I think I'm done with the portrait. I'm running into the problem where the more i work on it, the less I like so I guess this is a good stopping point.

photoshop portrait practice--work in progress

Just experimenting with painting in photoshop. I think this is the most successful I have been with digital painting. Hopefully the finished portrait will turn out well.

illustrator practice

I turned one of the bird sketches into an illustrator drawing for my vector imaging class. I still don't really get shapes but I think this is a step towards the right direction...

bird sketches

Dont' really know why but I started doing these bird sketches. they are a lot of fun and a really good stress reliever.

A new piece for my portfolio. Still experimenting with watercolor but I really like how this one turned out.

Old charcoal sketch

I was cleaning up my computer and found this drawing from beginning of 2008. I remember working on this charcoal drawing in the middle of the night instead of getting my painting done for class the next day...
