Giant Background got bigger!

Its a work in progress... and it is currently 22 inches by 51 inches (just about 2 feet by 4 feet) .

Giant Background

Last week I drew some characters that I like a lot So this weekend I have been trying to figure out where they live. I was hoping it would just come to me like a bolt of lightning but it hasn't. When something like this happens The only thing you can do is start drawing and see what happens. yesterday I sat down, pulled out a pencil and started to draw. Below are some progress photos of the location that I am working on. It is a work in progress and it keeps getting bigger. I keep adding more and more paper onto it. I really like it, but it doesn't fit the characters yet so I plan on continuing to draw and expanding on the layout until it feels right. This could go on for days... even weeks.

Painting Practice

I had another quite morning so I decided to get some painting done. My scanner isn't hooked up so I just took a photo. I think I might touch these up a little bit and then scan them in. The photo just doesn't cut it. But, I wanted to try and post things on a regular basis. anyways, these are both acrylic on 8x10 canvas panel. enjoy :)

some Oil Pastels

It was a nice quite morning this morning and I was able to clear my head and work with my Pastels. Im not very good with them, but I'm trying to get better. I've been using soft oils but Im thinking about getting some harder Pastels. If you get a chance drop a comment and if you have any tips for working with oil Pastels let me know.

Later Gators
