That fun moment when your laptopscreen..

Starts to flicker and bluescreen at you and then at regular intervals continues to flicker at you… Yeah needless to say I am backing up all my stuff now before doom happens…..

I’ve noticed that the only thing that really gets a lot of attention in my work are the eyes, about to change that so hence me doing studies:

Nose studies. 10 min per nose made using My Wacom and Photoshop.

Lip studies. 10 min per lip also made using My Wacom and Photoshop.


The technique I figured out in order to remember how to draw the shapes of the upper lip. Fishy kiss =^3^=


Project 1001 #177/#178 and Butterfly

So the reason why you haven’t sen any updates from me lately is because I had to study hard in order to take my drivers license. And I passed the 12th sept, after that I’ve been having flus and felt sick in combination with not feeling any urge for creativity at all.

#177. A silly I made the day after I’ve taken my license.

#178. 30 min study from photo ref made today.

Butterfly. A small doodle that I decided to finish off earlier today.

#175. Another one in the style of Tony Sandoval since I am in a bit of a rush and still can’t let go of his style. This time, no references all painted from mind using one of my favorite brushes.

30 piece challenge : Something ugly. It was hard to figure out something I find ugly to paint cause it feels like such a strong word. It’s like the word hate it carries too much meaning. We all have our preferences and that’s part of why we are all different, so I just painted something I don’t like because it’s look freak me out. Sorry poor Isopoda, but your legs, body, color and antenna creep me out.

I googled up a reference and painted this image of an Isopoda. 30 min, Photoshop.
