Venus Rising WIP pieces.

Extreme close up of piece 02

Close up of rough sketch for piece 03

Been working on my Venus Rising pieces tonight so had no time to draw any dudes.  Ooopsie!  Feeling the pressure to get enough pieces done so I can pick the best ones to go in the exhibition.  Feeling rather intimidated displaying next to all these artists.  They're really good and I just want to stay on par.

There are a lot of art pages on facebook and one thing I've noticed with all of them is that they have the same style and subject matter pretty much all the time.  I have series of work (like the fishbones) but I don't necessarily stick to one subject matter or style constantly.  I wonder if this is detrimental to me as an artist.  Certainly isn't as a freelancer since I have been hired several times to copy the style of somebody else....based on the fact that I can draw differently.  That said, I do like shading in fineliner a certain way and I have a hard time with hands still.

Some journal entries!

Hi, hi!  How are things going?  Thought I would touch base.  My first week and a bit at work has been quite full on.  Lots of work to do for now.....will see how that goes.  Rob and I went to Sushi Jiro at the QV last weekend for some delicious sushi train.  We love sushi train.  I especially wanted to draw the scampi nigiri and the spicy salmon nigiri. I also drew my fatty boombah kitty, Hanzo.  He is on a diet...but it's going to take time to lose weight, so he's still fat.  I need to lose weight too.  I really need to lessen my sugar and certainly exercise more.  Working on some test animations tomorrow.  Should be good fun!

IF: Burning

Howdy! This is my illustration for Illustration Friday and the theme is Burning.  I wanted to do something simple with bold colours and I went for "burning passion" and why not?  I think it's the type of burning most people wont mind at all.  This was illustrated in Flash. I bought two awesome fashion books today: Dreaming of Chanel and Dreaming of Dior.  I would definitely recommend them!

IF: Remedy

"Little Benny is off to remedy a pest problem" Howdy, When the theme "Remedy" for Illustration Friday came about, this came to my head.  I suppose I always had a thorough and maybe a tad bit on the overkill side when it comes to remedying certain problems.  I got bitten by bedbugs while I was in an Austrian hostel and this is exactly what I wanted to do...eradicate the nasty little creatures from the face of the planet.  This is hand drawn and then scanned into Photoshop for colouring. I went hiking again today. Went hiking in the rain and mud in the Dandeong ranges and treated myself to scones afterwards.  Not a bad day at all.  Keeping active and having a balance between work and staying at home all the time and just trekking outdoors really helps me focus on what I need to do.
