    Small update; tiny painting of a sparrow (work in progress)
    and a finished painting of blues legend Harry Muskee.
    For those of you that don't know, look up "Through the window of my eyes" on youtube.

    Thanks for watching, H.

    update

    Small paintings of roses - plan to sell these @ Queen's day, a national celebration, during which people can sell stuff on the streets, and drink beer and have a general good time. Plan is to make about 50 small paintings.
    So these are supposed to be quick

    Also an update on Darth Maul. Nearly there.

    The roses are small (10x15cm), Darth Maul is on A4 size paper.

    i always think the stage before you finish is so much more magical than the finished painting.
    the finishing process removes a lot of the lightness you have at the start.
    look:

    wow!
    scribbles 'n things (traditional & digital)
    cool!
    scribbles 'n things (traditional & digital)
    scary!
    scribbles 'n things (traditional & digital)
    nice!
    scribbles 'n things (traditional & digital)
    lovely
    scribbles 'n things (traditional & digital)
    dynamic
    scribbles 'n things (traditional & digital)

    the finished paintings look very mundane compared to these awesome loose early versions.

    Velocity Kendall: thanks man, glad you like the setups!
    And I wholeheartedly concur with you on these such matters, sir
    Actually I like the early stages best.
    Just slapping on paint, using megabrush and roaring "FRREEEDOM!!" while I'm at it.
    Just love it. No restrictions. Just go with the flow.
    I think there's a lot of energy that way that gets onto the canvas that I find hard to keep when finishing stuff.

    I think it has to do with the fact that I've sketched stuff all my life, but never really finished stuff, until recently.
    So that's a whole new territory for me. In that, I lose some of the raw "I know what I'm doing, no worries" sketching energy,
    as I tread forward somewhat skitterish/scared, like "I don't know wtf I'm doing, hope I don't screw this up" kinda thing.
    In that, I get careful, more rigid... and paint the stuff into the mundane bin.

    But hey.
    I figured I should finish loads of stuff. To practice finishing stuff.
    So I at some point know I can do that. And then, loosen up.
    And then... take over the world!!
    Maybe I should loosen up already, I Dunno? It doesn't feel as if I'm ready yet.

    Here's another one I'm calling done. Before it gets even more mundane

    That lion is awesome! I'm really loving all your bird paintings. I think that drawing birds convincingly is so tricky because of all the feathers, and I don't just want to make it a big, feathery mess, you know?

    Anyway, brilliant work

    update

    Trisscar: thanks!

    Qeen's day coming up... lots of drunk people in the streets,
    some medieval party atmosphere, together with a street-sale.
    Money making time (at least, that's the plan)

    So loads of paintings are to be for sale. For dump prices.
    Paintings that are yet to be made Hey, I'm trying to loosen up my workflow that way.
    Obviously, they won't be too fancy, but no crap either.

    Here's yesterday's and today's work.
    The dragon thing is a wip, playing with it on and off..
    the cow, landscape and abstract (wtf?) are for sale on monday.

    Till next time, take care (and draw you lazy ass!)

    H.

    NB: excuse the crappy quality of the pics. Phone don't recognize stuff when the sun's not out.

    Cool stuff as always, and nothing to crit (as always)! Just keep them coming. By the way, I like that Smaug painting especially. I wish to paint him (her? can't remember) someday too.

    Trisscar: Hehe. I'ts titled: baby bunny wabbit.
    The chick is titled: Harry the Philosopher.
    Both have sold already!

    Satu: thanks, girl! I'll keep 'em coming.
    Glad you like dem dragon. The real Smaug has wings though, so I guess it's another dragon.
    The painting is loosely based on Smaugish vibes; a golden dragon in his/her lair, when adventurers (Hobbits or whatnot) enter. I used gold paint on the dragon and the roots/veins, that looks kinda cool in real life.

    Painting of a bald eagle (2nd one, but the 1st I'll finish)
    50x70cm acrylics on paper.
    To be for sale on sunday.
    Some tweaking here and there still needs to be done.

    Thanks and till next time, H.

    update

    Ok, Qday is about to come up, so just today to crank out even more paintings!
    Holy crap, this has been a busy week but so much fun as well.
    I think I made roughly 20 paintings this week, 15 figurative, 5 abstract (or thereabouts)

    Some more paintings: little ones are 10x15cm, the seahorses are 13x18cm
    And the dragon is A4size (~20x30cm)
    .. and better quality pic of dem dragon.

    Cheers, till next time, H.

    update

    First of all, Qday sales went good, and bad.
    Bad as in, we hardly sold anything to the public.
    Good as in, many happy people, visibly enjoyed and surprised by the amount and quality of our work and some art person who wants us to join the expo next week @ city-centre. Not bad.

    Second, took some pics of D&D related sketches I regularly make for my D&D game: maps, creatures, locations, characters, stuff. Very sketchy.
    I'm thinking of doing more of these sketchdumps in the future.

    Third, some pics of our work for Qday and stuff.

    Thanks for watching, keep doing good, H.

    update

    Small update... another expo tomorrow Let's see how it goes.
    For now, some paintings I'm working on. Quite small ones.
    Next week, it's back at the big wildlife stuff.

    Reffed, except for the dragon painting.
    I hope to get less mundane, more awesome. I just gotta keep pushing it!
    I need to do studies, anatomy, composition, color use... everything.
    But now, just gotta finish a few more paintings first

    meh. the quality of the pic is somewhat lacking (mainly of the dragon) sorry for that.
