I drew this for my wife, as she requested a picture for her office. She loves owls, and she works for a large Canadian construction company, so I made her into a cartoon. She loves it, so now I have to paint it!
I haven't been able to draw as much as I would like to as of late! Recently moved, have a baby on the way, life's been kind of chaotic!
Luckily was able to bunker down and get back in the flow of things. This was a piece requested by my boyfriend for his step father's birthday. He loves the ocean, wants to be a captain on a boat and he also loves his Wild Turkey and smokes. Haha. Can't wait to see what he thinks. :)
@withlinesofink Thanks. I haven't painted in a long time and I actually feel like this piece isn't as good as ones I did a couple years ago. I couldn't get past the "dodge and burn" look. I don't actually use those tools, but what I did try had the same effect. yuck My shadows are far too dark, huh? I will try again for the 'Independent' theme.
More sketches I've done are also on my Tumblr blog: https://thimblefolio.tumblr.com/
I want to get doing mini daily goal assignments toward little story based projects next. I was watching a video I bought on Gumroad from Titus Lunter on getting into the flow yesterday and I realize I need to just focus on one project for a bit but break it up into manageable chunks so I don't get overwhelmed by the scope in my head.
