I’m having trouble being patient with my lack of production. I’m learning a ton but not completing finished work.

I’ll continue to try and be patient but at the same time I’m going to make sure that all the practice I’m doing has a purpose.

Asking the question, “What if?” has made a huge difference in my last two thumbnail iterations. The last thumbnails in this series has propelled this composition way beyond the original idea.

I figured out my problem. I didn’t pick a specific palette before painting the mountain. I did that today and It’s going so much better!

More studies of Framed Ink. These are not my sketches they are copies directly from the book. I wish I was that good with digital. 🙂

I forgot to do my warmup today. 🙁

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
