untitled update 8/31/10

Well ArtWalk is over for this year. I had a good time meeting people and taking compliments on my art and i feel it's a big step for me. I'm not one to put myself out there and there are a ton of artists in the area that can do it better then me. It was important to take a step toward becoming an artist. I suppose I was already an artist but these events helped me be more professional and field questions about drawing and painting. Next year i'll hope to be a year better when i step back out onto that sidewalk if i'm asked back.

Went the Borders last night to art a little and wanna give a thank you to the couple that stopped over informed me of the artistic happening of the LValley and commented on this:

been working on her a while now off and on and i'm deciding to finish up this week so please stay tuned.

I've switched to charcoal for the background because it'll be a lot faster than gouging the paper back and forth with a 3B.

Charcoal was sitting in my drawer since my college art class days. I only took that one class in college but it was pretty good with exposing me to different mediums (media).

you may not notice but i fixed the nose a bit since my last scan of her and the eye will be worked a bit in the next one.

Update 8-24-10

'The reports of my demise were greatly exaggerated' - someone said that and I always liked the quote but unfortunalely I cannot remember whom so i cannot give credit

a month and no update, i've heard missing a month on a blog is practically killing it

so i have to build back up now and make this a place worth visiting

unfortuntely the last month i've had some personal issues and havent gotten back into my artistic groove, i've also been going away on minivacations, so whil i am not back to full strength artistically I should be able to update this atleast weekly, sorry for anyone that was taking the time to check this out
Well i've gotten a little further on this but it's far from complete. I'd like to keep the cloak thing completely page white and tone the background and flesh and hair so maybe in my spare time i'll build this up a bit or it'll stay like this in the portfolio, let me know what you think

I have an artwalk this sat that i'm horrendously unprepared for but expect a couple more updates before sat =)
