Sketches #186 and #187

I blame how bad these sketches are on hand pain. Even tho its my left hand that is in pain and I am right handed, its kind of distracting and well, painful lol So here is a butterfly barrette and my hair brush, that looks very very pointy lol

And hopefully I get to work on the Barn Owl to try to get finished by this weekend.Too much stuff to do/learn and not enough time.

Wordless Wednesday

(with the right picture this time :p)

Tiger #5

This doesn't look like I have done a lot of work since the last update, but trust me I have. Lots and lots of brown layers and the start of a pink nose. Digital is so much faster lol

Barn Owl Upate #2b

First layer of colour on the Barn Owl. Very rough and loose, just to get the basic tone down.

Very subtle colour blending, even in a close up its kind of hard to see.

And what it looks like right now, might get more done if I don't go to bed lol

Very odd hand, I need to practice more. But I past the half way mark in my challenge and didn't notice and I a pretty shocked I have managed to get this far with it.

Sunday Sketches

Back to typing with one hand again because my left is out of commission for awhile. I ended up going to the out of hours GP last night I was in so much pain, and after 2 GPs saw me they figured out I don't have just carpal tunnel I also have Cubital tunnel syndrome. yay...Do you know how hard it is trying not to bend your wrist and elbow?lol

So,probably not going to be able to do a lot of art unless its digital until the problems are fixed. Which is OK since I need the practice with a lot of different programs.

Weekly Book Wrap Up

Yay almost caught up with my reading list but not sure what to finish next.

A Smile in the MindA Smile in the Mind by Beryl McAlhone

The main body text can be a little dry but the image examples make up for that slightly. Starting to age a bit, but worth a read to see the different ways witty and clever design can be used.

A River in the Sky (Amelia Peabody, #19)A River in the Sky by Elizabeth Peters
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

short quick enjoyable read that I think enjoyed more because of the change of location to another ancient site.

10 Lost Pulp Sci-Fi Masterpieces10 Lost Pulp Sci-Fi Masterpieces by F.L. Wallace
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Some of the stories are a little weak but over all they were worth a read. Well written for the genre and not too cheesy and a few interesting scenarios to contemplate.
