Huevember 2020 Art Challenge: Day 01-07 of Skull Studies

Hallo all!   How is everyone feeling?  Things have been tense with the USA elections and Covid.  There's some hope tomorrow, here in Victoria Australia...about easing more restrictions.  I am so looking forward to it.

Anyhoo, what's been happening?  Well, I am currently doing the Huevember Art Challenge.  7 days in so far, I think that's the most I've done in an art challenge for aaaaages!

So the theme I am using is this, since I have so many copic markers.  I think am missing just one marker here:

And I am doing skull studies as my theme!  I got a skull from Proko...2 skulls actually and it's been awesome.  Here are posts 1-7 and some behind the scenes shots!

It's been great being able to draw the skulls from life.  I would love to have a life size anatomically correct skull and even better, an entire skeleton.  That would just be amazing and super helpful when drawing.  

I am still freelancing on a job while trying to do personal projects.  I have so many personal projects I would like to do and I really would like to expand to paper mache' and painting on wood.  Just so many things.  There are things I would like to talk about too on this blog, that's not just me posting up my drawings.  I think people would be able to relate to it more if I did.  I stopped writing more in depth since I didn't really want to get judged by strangers, but ultimately, it doesn't really matter does it?  I should feel like am able write more about things that matter and if people have opinions about it, then they have opinions about it. 

Well, regardless, it does feel hard trying to keep a blog alive and be consistent with it and I know I've already mentioned before about posting more regularly, but what can I say?  Life and projects are my priority and have been for a while now.  Though...I think it would be awesome to post daily like I used to.

Hope you enjoy the skulls and reading my rants!

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.
