Value study of New Characters,

I teach a fith and sixth grade art class and we have been working on characters for a story. Here is my fist illustration with those characters. the guy in the back is supposed to be the protagonist but he wasn't nearly as fun to draw as the girl. Her name is Jessica Heartwell and she is planning to win the contest for the greatest invention in the world. She is not going to win but this illustration is her attempt to sabatoge her main competitor by sending the spies after him. I was trying to finish the color for IF this week but its not going to happen, Too much other stuff. You will have to put up with the value study for now. Check back I plan on posting the finished art in a couple of days.

This illustraton is for Illustration Friday. My favorite part is thinking that the prince has probably hit his head on tons of doorways in his life.

So Basically here is a aketch for a new painting that I have been working on. I have been wanting to paint snow so I decided that I would. That painting is comming along so I will show that to you later. I think in this case the painting is going to be better than the sketch.
I like the rain. (that last comment has nothing to do with anything but that is is raining today,) See Ya

For Biddle's Sake

I was reading this book by Gail Carson Levine and I love the stories, but the illustrations are kinda boring. I figured I could do something about that so here is my first sketch for the book called "For Biddle's Sake"


Basically, I am watching Beauty and the Beast right now and I was just thinking how horrible of a person Gaston is. We all really know that he is the villian but he is so pathetic. He is selfish and a coward and why did he ever become the most popular guy in town. Couldn't everyone else see how whimpy he really was?
Anyway super best movie, yo.

Nice Witch

So I decided that blogs are fun and here I am.
Do you ever have those times when you start reading just before you go to bed and then you know it was a bad idea because even though Logic Man tells you to stop, Adventure Man is just stronger (he obviously works out more) and you can't put it down and then before you know it it is extrememly late and you know when the alarm goes off you are going to curse Adventure Man (he is also the sleeping in type) as you drag yourself in to the bathroom to brush your teeth.
Yeah, well I have if you haven't then you just really need to find a book to really like. Of course maybe adventure man can appear in other forms too and lets face it logic man often loses. Life is just more fun when Adventure Man is around.
Not that Logic Man is absent he is tough enough to keep the other guys in check enough to keep me out of trouble too often. the dude that gets me most in trouble has got to be called Fly Off The Handle and Insult Someone Man. He is sassy and not too nice. I think Logic man is in charge more than him but every once and a while. . .
