“Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.” ― Winnie-the-Pooh, A.A. Milne I’ve encountered a rather large pot hole in my journey along my artistic road… My hard drive crashed and died last week. Crippling for a digital artist. The good news is that I did get a warning before […]
Today I’m sharing faces 5, 6, 7 and 8 with you. Faces 5, 6 and 7 are actually steps in my work to make face 8. Let me show you. Today’s final portrait started out in the Poser program, which is a 3D modeling program. I use Poser 7. Working in Poser is a bit […]

Today is Day 18 of Art Every Day Month. I’ll be spending my day sketching and doodling for tomorrow’s Crudoodle and will be sharing that with you tomorrow morning. What I’d like to talk about is yesterday… Yesterday, I woke up at 2:30 a.m.! Yes, I know. I don’t know why I woke up then, […]
I spent a few days this week working on this piece of art, so I’m sure it counts for Art Every Day Month. I did a little every day and I’m glad I took my time with it, as I changed it a few times. Sometimes it helps to walk away and come back the […]
