I do like how they turned out, the black could be darker but that is easily enough fixed.
Some people know, I have arthritis in both sides of my jaw, hence the hyalgan injections. I have already had the right side done, its the worst, so it was done first. It was working, but for the last few weeks its been creaking and cracking more and tonight, it feels like someone has kicked me in the side of the face :/
So less then a year later, and its starting to go back to the way it was before the injections. A bit of a pain in the ass :/ Back to only being able to eat soup :p
On a happier note, 4 day weekend! yay! but I have lots of college work to do, so not really days off, at least i can sleep past 6:30 :D

I really haven't drawn anything, even at college. One life drawing and a rough sketch of what I think was an old meat grinder :p
Forgot to take a photo of the life drawing, so here, have some jelly beans :D

Still carving away at this piece of lino. Taking a little longer then normal since there are little areas to carve away and I am trying not to cut into lino I want left alone, so moving slowly.

And now onto something else...hopefully this time not a bird :p
This is a cropped image of the Eagle, would probably be how I would end up leaving it to frame it, if I was going to. I tend to leave extra space on the paper for framing, for 2 reasons.
1. A customer can have the final say in how they want the image to look if they frame it.
2. Sometimes I will add to a drawing, and having that extra space to do so can come in handy.
Used this photo for the drawing :)

Debating on whether to colour the background on this or leave the paper as is. I think the colour goes well with the Eagle, so might be lazy and leave it :p

So started another round of hyalgan injections in my jaw...ow :/ Nice dime sized bruise by my ear. Its not horribly painful, but not um...pleasent. Its odd that you can feel the fluid moving around when it is injected, and the anesthetic messes with my eyes. Makes things all fuzzy, and I go into shock, because yeah, it does hurt. So I am a little shaky for a few hours after.
I wouldn't be doing this in my left jaw if it had not have worked so well on the right side. No more lock jaw on that side, just the odd crushy tin foil sound. Go from being only able to open my mouth 15mm to 30mm. So even tho I have to deal with fuzzy eyes, bruised face, and the pain of the injection, seems sort of worth it :p And really being able to eat a piece of steak again would be nice :p

On the plus side, getting a lot of reading done, and drawing a lot. But I am starting to look like I have been punched in the face :p
There have probably been studies done about artists and insomnia, I should probably go and find a few to read......

This months location in the Virtual Paintout is Tasmania :) Very nice looking place and another one to add to the travel list for one day.
I will just say, I love my markers :D I just wish they were not so much money or I would have more of them. I know this scratchy ink/marker style is not to everyones taste, but I like how simple it looks but also how colourful I can make it.
