iPad sketches: Babygirl and Lil' Man

These sketches were done back in February and I'm just now getting around to uploading them. The sketch of my daughter was done while she was reading before bedtime. And the one of my son while awaiting the arrival of his newest cousin in the hospital lobby.

Voodoo Child!

Early this year I got the crazy idea to try and orchestrate an exhibit featuring new and original works of art based on the Disney Villains franchise. It was a pretty exhausting experience but one that proved worthwhile in the end. In all, we had works from 19 different artists and a total of 23 unique submissions, all of which were displayed prominently in a gallery created specifically for this event.

Along with curating the show I also contributed a piece. I chose Dr. Facilier from "The Princess and the Frog." I really loved everything about this character from his streamlined physical design all the way down to his serpent-like movements. I also thought the voice-casting of Keith David was brilliant.

This piece was done on black Strathmore paper, 18x24 with oil pastels, colored pencil and correction fluid.

iPad Sketch: Art Studio app

Trying out a new sketch app for the iPad. It's called Art Studio and it's been out for awhile now but I'm just now getting around to it. MUCH different than Sketchbook Pro but I haven't used it enough yet to declare a winner. Stay tuned...

iPad: The Sleeping Series- "Process"

A co-worker asked about my process. I think he assumed that I was able to complete these "Sleeper Series" sketches in one sitting. That is not, however, the case (although I wish it was!). There are a lot of factors that play into me NOT being able to do so but, regardless, I generally have just enough time to lay down the sketch and most of the base colors. It's not until later on (usually the same day) that I go back and add some of the light, texture and other color details to complete the drawing.

Got it? Great! Now go to sleep.
