Cover Progress, now with Color!

This is from a few days ago, it is much further along now. But I thought I would show this step  with color started.

Lack of Veiwers

OK, for some reason my page views have dropped dramatically and I have had no comments (except some spam) in a long time! Please, comment if you are a serious follower of my work. I will do my best to post more soon!

Cover Update

A few steps further in the process, this is the grey scale of the figure for the cover I am doing. So far the client is happy with it!

Live NOW!

So, I have been seeing al this stuff about Spring...Winter just started on the calendar. So why is it that we always want what is next and not what is now? When it is Winter, we want Spring and then Spring comes and we can't wait till Summer! Then Summer makes us long for Fall and the we look forward to snow and Winter! Humans have LOST the ability to live in the NOW and appreciate what you have NOW! This minute, this hour, this day is ALL there is! Tomarrow may never come! Stop wishing your life away and live NOW!

Starting Over

OK, new direction, new information, new inspiration. This is VERY rough and other than the basic pose and I hope the face it is all subject to change. The background will have crystals and there will be chains on the wrists.

Still Trying

OK, this was the 3rd try and on this one she changed direction (which was good cause I thought the original pose was not the best). I may finish this as something else cause I kinda like it.

Next Try

Well the first cover sketch was wrong so I started this one and still not right but better. But here is the second unfinished sketch.

Trying and Trying

I have been working, just not on anything I could post yet. Here is a rough of the character from a book cover I am doing. I will give more details and show the final cover if/when the author/customer says I can. This is the 5th sketch trying to get the pose and character correct...still not quite there I think.

Todays Reason to Smile

I have been missing seeing new pictures of my grandson since his mom had not posted anything since  before the new year started. Today she posted this cute picture with the comment; "Why is my son so awesome he didn't want to wear clothes but he wanted to wear regular underwear ill take it". He is SO cute and every picture I see of him makes me smile. I just hope someday I get to meet him in person!

New Photo of Old Painting

Back in 2000 I did a large painting on canvas, 30 x 40. Every time i tried to get a good picture of it something was wrong, off, had a flash spot or otherwise was not good. I got a new camera in September but just remembered I could try getting a picture of this painting with it to see if it was better than the other tries. It is! So here is a good version of "Hern in the River of Time". Original and prints for sale!

Doll Condo

OK, I cleared everything off so I could get started making this more finished and room like. I made this out of 2 sets of bi fold doors. One door for each side and the other 2 equally cut to make the shelves and top. This is completely bare and unfinished but it will have rugs, wall paper, furniture etc. It has a Masonite back and is on rolling casters.
