IF PERSPECTIVE

My cat Jack loves all sorts of bags. Looking out of them gives him a whole new perspective on things.
This is my first time working with pastels which gave me a whole new perspective on how really difficult this media is.

FIGURE DRAWING

I found something pretty cool today. Posemaniacs.com is a website where they have poses for quick figure sketches. The uncool thing about it, is that they are not "real" people look alikes, the models are more like straight out of the Bodies exhibition. The cool thing is that you don't have to pay the model fee and you can do any time you want to or can for a long as pleases you.
You can set it up so that the poses change every 30, 45, 60 or 90 seconds. It's a great way to practice. It's also available for iphones (free!):)
Here is what I was doing for the last 6 minutes or so. I had it set to 45 seconds and I didn't skip any poses. I switched from pencil to charcoal towards the end. Give it a try!

IF PROPAGATE

I'm "cheating" on this one because I have finished it for something else a couple of moths ago, but I'm making IF on the very first day of topic announcement:)
Also, if you like it a lot, this design and similar ones (with other flags) are for sale in my cafe press store.

ARIES TAKE 2

Here it is. Tried a little little bit of a smile:)


Other than this, I've been a real real slacker art wise. I need to get back on doing IF but I just won't make it this week. (again) :(
I have however been working on some sewing - tank tops actually. I know we're in the middle of the winter. It's freezing outside. But I'm just ready for spring. I'll put some photos up here once I've finally gotten around to taking them. Stay put.

ARIES TAKE 1

I've been really really slacking as far as painting is concerned. Not that I've been lying around doing nothing, but have been really busy with everything else. Aga's asked me several times about Aries. I've had it sketched out forever and I still have a long way to go but here's a proof that I have started working on it:

VIRGO FINAL TAKE

I think I'm finished. I've been back and forth with it. That's an awesome thing about using a tablet, I can keep redoing everything without having to worry about making it worse, but then again, with endless possibilities I'm not sure when to stop:)
Aga, Aries is next:)

VIRGO TAKE 2

Here's where I got with it today. I'm still not sold on it. It still needs work but I think it's getting there. Let me know what your opinion is?
