Second variation of a character design for my friend Ben.
So basically my wife has shown me one of her super secret shading techniques. I gave it a try. If I hadn’t mentioned before, mamma bear is an artist too but much more modest. If I can convince her maybe she’ll “let me” post some of her stuff also.
This is a self portrait from an oil painting course I was taking. Never painted on mdf before but it stores pretty easy but difficult to transport. Overall I like it! It’s me so I kinda have to like it, right?
This is a character created for a friends fiction novel. I made several copies of the drawing after I initially inked it and tried several variations of color combinations. Well, after several outfit changes, this one was the winner.
The boys wanted to color today so that means I got to color too. I now have two characters, (Julia and RJ). I think that’s enough t start working on the storyline. Thinking about something like: “Adventures of a homeschooled kid”.

Huge snow storm has swept the North East. The old me would have kringed. The current me is gonna take the rest of the day off and go play my kids(after they shovel some snow).
The entrepreneur bug has bit me. Studio is going great. Sounds small but every time I count my business cards I find one or two missing. So I at least know it is grabbing some attention. I’ve also had two inquiries into art lessons. BTW, If anyone gets the chance, pass along my info. Thanks!
So, I was spending the even reorganizing my families sketchbook. Moving aside the ones we have already filled up and stocking the shelves with the ones we just bought. I thought to myself, this is exactly how I imagined my life would be. Thank you Lord
