Finished it today! Happy Chinese New Year! dragon year! :) I was inspired by the new year and one of my favorite Disney movies Mulan! Tried to do a different style for fun!

Animal sketches

Just wanted to draw a bit while I work on this catalog. Sorry, It'll be a few days before I update again. I REALLY need the money so this catalog is top priority for me right now...ugh. I hate not having a job...It really stresses me out. I would of drawn a couple more, but Painter kept crashing on me :(

hey all! Sorry I forgot to update yesterday with the sketch below. I was handed a catalog project and I need the money so I have been researching InDesign. Pretty neat program, but I always gotta come back and do the things I love. :) These are both WIP. The line art sketch I am calling "Sunshine Help". I am doing this drawing with the saying "Pocket full of sunshine" in my head. If you have a pocket full of sunshine, why not help people that are feeling under the weather and give them some. :) The other one, I had a daydream about tigers made out of sand so I began to draw this up. I will be adding more tigers to this image cause one is boring and doesn't make it an image. Ill be alternating between these drawings so tomorrow an update on the line art will show up and on Thursday and update for the tiger will show up.

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year

Hope everyone had a great holiday! I went outta town to Texas to visit my family so I was MIA for a bit but here I am returning to my art! I just had some fun and did some character sketches to music. Haha. Spent more time researching then drawing Bleh. Each sketch can range from 2 minutes to 20 minutes. Trying to see where I stand now with mind designs. Anywho, more to come tomorrow! :)
