Fun with a Skull…


Yesterday I spent some time just doodling, having fun. Using Charlie, my faithful plaster skull model, I sketched this out.

Something about him appealed to me. He just had that certain something, let’s say. In honor of my birthday, I decided to give him a hat.

This amused me. I made him into a soldier…

Then a cowboy. I did not intend for him to look that much like Yul Brynner in WestWorld, but hey, accidents happen, and they can be fun.

Finally, that paranoid look in his eyes starting making me think… so I turned him into a zombie farmer, who is always wary of aliens coming to take his zombie cows.

so that’s what I did yesterday. Hope this made you smile, I had a lot of laughs with these!

 

Fantasy Cover Final!

Hello Artfans! Just finished the cover for the sword & sorcery novel I’m writing. This was so much fun to do, but I admit I got frustrated after a while. I hope it looks alright. I got some good advice from cool people on Facebook. I am pleased with the restraint I showed with the background figures. I can become detail obsessed. What do you think?

This was done with Painter 17, btw! Awesome program!

Hi guys! Thought you might enjoy a progress pic of my cover for the fantasy novel I’m working on. When the cover is complete, she’ll be clothed. Right now I want to focus on light, and capturing the eerie glow. I am LOVING my Painter!

My horror collection received its first review, five stars! Take a look, if you want to be scared! 😉

Beginning “Darkmother”

Hello, all! I wanted to share the very beginning, a loose sketch, (detail) for what I think will be the cover painting for this sword and sorcery book I’m working on. I have a co-writer by the way.

I plan to continue on with the oils in my new painter 17. I am finding it a breeze to use, and it’s fast! Therefore, inspiration! If I can ever find someone or something that can keep up with my brain…then you people will really see some art! Ha ha! Anyway, hope you like this, and that you have a good day! More soon! Buy meh book!

CorgiFest Saturday!

Hi guys! I wanted to share my first painting done with my new Painter 17!! I’m having so much fun with the brushes, and the speed is out of this world. Feeling very inspired today. I adore corgis, they’re such fat lil derps. I’ve been getting a lot of great feedback on the book, and it’s still selling, sitting nicely in the bestsellers on Kindle horror! I have a lot to be thankful for today. The sun is shining, to top it all off.
