Life sketches, an orc and some sounds
Trying to find more time for life-drawing, and hopefully find a (somewhat) convenient life-painting class. I was quite rusty, and I did not like that feeling one bit. Instead of going with my usual pencils, or ball-point pen, I used a brush ben and stating swishing around the ink with a brush dipped in water. I think I am going to explore this more. The lost edges and abstraction of the washy ink has really caught my interest.
Here is an image from an upcoming project. I am not sure how much I am allowed to say on the matter, so I will play it safe and say nothing :) I know orcs are as overplayed as the original Pac-Mac, but I have to admit, it was pretty fun to paint this handsome guy. All done digitally in Painter 11.
On my work breaks I have been playing quite a lot of guitar lately, and have really been itching to make new music. Here's just an improv little music sketch I did that I thought would be fun to share. Just let the webcam record and started layering loops. It's a slow , repetitive ditty, but it might be good for insomniacs who have trouble sleeping. I was a little reluctant to post music on an art blog, but I thought I would give it a chance.
Thanks for stopping in !- scott
