illustration friday: under the sea

So the postings have been few and far between lately and I do apologize. I wish I could show you what I've been working on, but alas this cannot be so. And I know I'm cheating by posting something old of mine, but I added some new bits to it so I hope you will still enjoy it. And for those that haven't seen it before, well this post is for you! This is my entry for Illustration Friday's topic "under the sea." I thought it was fitting.

I'll be working on some new fun stuff to post here soon. But for now my blogging buddies I must bid you adieu.

illustration friday: spring

Howdy everyone, here's my entry for Illustration Friday. Topic is Spring and I decided to do an Easter egg color kit. I don't think they design them like this anymore....though I haven't checked the stores. It's been a long time since I've colored eggs. I usually just wind up eating the chocolate ones.

Encouraged by the wonderfully talented Smook, I decided to include the very rough sketch along with the final painting. I wish the sketch looked nicer, but I just don't clean up my work sometimes. I usually work off of the rough sketch and already have in my mind what everything should look like. Don't know if that's the best method of doing things but it works for me most of the time.

Well I must get back to work. Happy Spring everyone!
