Where art converges with writing and poor Grammar.
So yeah… I should be called the Rust Lord for now on… I am so rusty at watercolours…
Its sad really. I haven’t painted in a few months and suddenly all my skills are gone. Though I will say I have been shell shocked pretty badly. My dream last night seem to prove that. I won’t go into details, its intensely personal. 
But yeah…. Hopefully I can keep painting and working. Have a nice day.

I love it when somebody tries to make me feel bad for wanting an answer to a question about an art piece with them in it, all because I end up assuming I fucked it up when I dont get a response after 2 or 3 days. I mean, what I am to assume. Ask a question, then nothing…. Complete radio silence for 2 days… I am going to assume I did something wrong.

After looking through a ton of images online of models, I have come to an amazing conclusion.

All of them appear to be in pain. Why the hell arent they smiling? Why is it always this look of anger and constipation? I mean, damn… A smile can be attractive, just a simple smile. Where as them looking as if they are readying to punch somebody in the face really isnt attractive. It isn’t even a playful “Imma gonna crush your face, scrub!” look.

Anyways, yeah…. That is why I dont tend to look for online models. Have a nice night.

Sometimes, its honestly the stupid shit that matter most.

I spent the morning working on a book for a friend that I will be posting images of after I give it to her. I might post some of the book I plan on making for myself tomorrow. Of course, that means sacrificing another brush for it. Not that I mind.

And the more I think about it… I am excited for the weekend. I have a stupid painting to try and make awesome, a sketch to finish, some zombahs to shoot (L4D2), and work on a ton of stuff for a D&D campaign here before long. Also, I should more than likely call my mom, just to check in. 

Oh and call somebody about modeling, hopefully see the other girl who might model. Try to set up a time to meet up with the girl who is the recieptant of the new book, and see if I can find some way to drag her equally awesome but very introverted roommate on over…

So yeah, I have a busy weekend ahead of me. And it is a little strange that is so full of potential fun despite the amount of it that will require so much effort. At least tomorrow, I should leave work about 10 minutes or 20 minutes early. Which again, is so stupid (Friday is the worst day for me to leave early) but at the same time still makes me smile.

Anyways, have a nice day. 

Here is a little of what I working on.

So here are a couple of sketches from last night. The incomplete one is a work in progress…

Okay… So its been a while…

Hasn’t it? I mean, I can’t remember the last time I made a real post. I have had a lot going on in the last few days, let alone the last few months. It is hard to admit the amount of it that has felt soul crushing. Seriously. Outside some crappy drawings, I havent actually drawn anything in sometime.

Last night, I sat down and worked on an image. Nothing impressive, nothing new, hell, it was from the same photo reference set as most of the others I have been using for sketch work. Of course, that doesnt mean it didnt go to plan. In fact, it went rather well. Now I have a couple more things to work on today and tomorrow. I have, if it goes to plan, hopefully somebody volunteering to model for me (which would be nice) and I have a couple of small things to work on.

Sadly, I am almost certain that my art will have to take a step into the background. It just doesn’t seem realistic as a goal. Art does pay, but it is a tough course and is too variable. However, I have an idea that might work and I have been sticking with it quite a bit over the last few months. I plan on making it into something more solid. Expect a lot more photographs of food. All vegan and all awesome. I won’t let it be boring or plain. They will be like my watercolours, but edible. Far from ordinary, but still approachable.

Anyways, have a nice day.

wow, it has been far too long since I have said that.
