This is the painting which prompted the sculpt. Notice the uninspired lighting? What lighting? I will use the sculpt like a maquette, so I can put some better lighting on this. And since I spent so much time with the sculpt, might as well do another painting of it at a different angle.

Hey, Dorota-here it is, at least for now. I've been working on this during my lunchbreaks at work. What's unnerving is that this has been easier than drawing! This is the first time I've ever done anything serious with Sculpey. Today I added some ears and worked on the face a little, but you will have to wait until I fire it (hopefully this coming weekend) to see the final before I paint it.

My neighbor's son is into tattoos. He's been asking me to start designing some art and he will take them to his tattoo artist in Arizona and sell them. Here is a quick sketch that I need to finalize. I did this while completing an online traffic school test.

Hey it's been awhile. I've accepted a full time position at a toy company and am gamefully employed, working 40 hours aweek. I love my job. For the first time, I can work uninterrupted all day long and get a creative flow that I have not had in nearly 7 years. But what about all those previous posts? you might ask. Oh I would paint for about 10 minutes, stop, put a load of laundry in, paint another 7 minutes, vaccum the floor, paint maybe another 3 minutes, help my daughter with her homework...well, you get the picture.
Here is a drawing I have been working on during my lunchbreaks and now I am painting it in acrylic during my lunchbreak. Tomorrow, I will start to make a maquette of it out of sculpey, light it, then put the hilites on the painting.
