Still alive. Still graduated. Still arting, bit by doodle by page by stroke by bit.

Tonight -

Krisareth. 4x6" canvas, acrylic. In progress.

Upcoming, dragonboat practice, dragonboat festival, hands falling off, maybe.

Considering research and planning for the future... more than I thought I'd be doing at this stage, but feels too good of a direction to stop lining the path in advance.

I love my girlfriend.

Also, I'm very glad that I live on the top of a slope of even a slight hill, though driving over the river today was somewhat terrifying.

Also to note, my brother and his wife are awesome on the account of getting me this as a souvenir from Cancun. Living awesome.

Days 37 and 38 - Meet Reefe. I had this old, old sketch, from years ago... and now that I have paint and canvases again, I think Reefe would be a good creature to bring to colour.

Pencil and acrylic on canvas, so far. Just getting the shadows in.

Day 26 - Meet Master Kristofer. Shortly put, he is a librarian made of awesome. And a few other things, but mainly awesome.

Mechanical pencil on paper, doodlecoloured in Photoshop. Also, am I the only one who finds it hysterically funny that when AMC is showing Fight Club, of all things, the first commercial to rear its head is that 'Lord's Prayer crystal cross necklace' thing? Maybe I'm just too tired, but I think it's amusing.

Day 24 - Zavareau by Firelight.

He is done 24"x36", acrylic on canvas.

If anyone has any recommendations on how to take photos of the stupidly shiny acrylic surface with a little itty bitty FinePix camera, I will be all ears. I might try taking outdoor photos tomorrow... but man, this is a pain to photo.

Day 19 - Meet Little Girl.

Mechanical pencil on paper, and I am way, way too tired right now.

Day 17 - Sculpting! To begin, take a My Little Pony (the mini kind with a mane and a solid plastic chunk of a tail). Behead. De-hair. Remove ears and front feet. Apply liberal helpings of Sculpey... and poke like crazy.

Work in progress. Needs a pearl, maybe.

Day 16 - More progress on Zavareau. This evening, more work on the highlights of the teeth, added the rest of his neck spines.

I really, really want to finish this... but that means having to take a decent photo without the glare from my room's lights. This could be tricky.

Day 15 - Meet... another random dragon. Call him Lung. Makes me think of tattoo design again.

Pencil and ink on paper. Drawn during a combination of George Stroumboulopoulos and Jon Stewart. Those two seriously need to be in the same room at some point. The awesome would write itself.

Day 13 - Meet... a random dragon, I suppose. Didn't post it when I drew it last night because I was just too dang tired to relocate my laptop and turn on the scanner.

Pencil and ink on paper. I suppose this guy looks a little like one of my other dragons... maybe the stubby little offspring of 'im. I like his teeth.

Day 7 - Meet Pan. An old pencil and ink sketch I whipped up ages ago, decided to give it some colour tonight. Didn't go nearly as well as I'd hoped, but gave me more ideas on where to take this guy next.

Watercolour and ink on paper. Need to practice more eastern dragons.

Day 4 - Meet Zavareau. I didn't do all of this painting today, but I did work on it for pretty much all of my afternoon and evening. I haven't worked with acrylics and canvas for a bugger-all long time, and I've missed it.

Ongoing work in progress, acrylic on canvas. Call it a mood piece, maybe.

Really, this should have been predictable. They're just so shiny.
