Here's my entry for the challenge yourself. I've never been a fan or considered myself that proficient at drawing animals, but my friend asked me to draw a picture of birds for one of her students. Feather patterns are wicked difficult, that is all.
Also, both Bill and Chuck have emailed me to remind me of the MFA Illustration show up until next friday. Chuck also has invited any of the illustration majors to visit the MFA students and the guest artists this and next week in the studio space. I'm probably going to head up there next week sometime.
And for those of you who are looking for a quick and easy professional looking portfolio site, deviantART has launched nice ones. Probably the best thing about them is that they have no inherent connection to their regular site. You still have to sign up for deviantART which is free, but there is also a premium membership portfolio deal that allows you to pick your own domain name or import one in. The sites are really nice, especially for something that's free or $30 a year for premium. Here's an example of mine if you're interested.
A little commission from my sister to design a tatoo for her. Her band has this thing about buffalos. The associated phrase (and I have no idea how to spell it) is "Tatonka." Something from Dances with Wolves. I haven't seen it so I don't know much about it. Anyway, this was the final sketch before alterations.

Hey Doug, and whoever else is lurking around here. So, I've been up to my eyeballs in Ram stuff, but I did make the noble effort of sketching in the dark at the 4th of July fireworks. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like much. So instead, here is my sketch from the 4th last year, when I had the aid of a flickering street light.
I'd like to get caught up with book stuff enough to post more often.

I'm still posting sketches here, and I encourage others to do the same. :)
Quick oil sketch before bed... and first painting done in my new studio! Yay.
By the way sorry for the crappy quality. I took a image of it using Photo Booth on my mac. Still need a scanner...

I know June is passed but whatever. Here's my entry for the Sunday challenge. I normally suck at lineart and drawing attractive girls (without reference) so here's my attempt at both of these at once. I'll probably throw some colour on later today. Still gotta fix some stuff though, but critique away...
I never imagined that after graduation I'd end up being as stressed out as I was during school. Now that wedding plans are the source of my stress, it's nice to have art as a way to release. These are just out of my head. I did other stuff, but I didn't feel like scanning everything.
