SketchBook: still kickin'
So, it's been a year. And, funny enough, Peter, you had it half-right. I did go off and get married. :)

SketchBook: sesame paper

I'll probably use this as a cover for a collection of short stories if I ever put it together....
I think the photoshop practice is really paying off. The girl with the boots and the butterflies shows good progress and looks great. As a crit I'd look out for backgrounds with vivid colors that you...
I'm glad to see you working with the watercolors. Here's my starter tips: Have fun with the color, don't be afraid to use a blow-dryer (I blow-dry very, very often), always use good paper (and tape...

those gouache plants look great. keep at it.
the landscapes are solid and you manage to create an impression within a rather subtle range. great cloudwork.
