I am still working on this page. I am not too thrilled with this since I didn’t plan or compose the scene at all. (Backgrounds Charlie) It always hurts when you spend most of your time on the characters and totally forget about a background. Lose.
I also realize that I need to make some better pencil brushes for my own sketching needs. The current brushes I use were created a couple years ago, and have a nasty smooth edge. I have enjoyed working with Mischief’s pencil tool and would like to create a similar brush.
It is still fun to create what I can with the time I have. Almost feels as if time goes by way to fast on a daily basis.
A small Magnus sketch. Done in Painter 2017 with the 6b pencil. Lag time on moving items and sketching at times makes me move back to applications that respond to command.
Given my strengths in Photoshop, I tend to gravitate towards that application. But realize since Photoshop comes with an excess of tools I will begin to lose track and play with brushes I don’t need to.

I keep playing around with too many apps and have taken a liking to Made with Mischief. It feels very lightweight and is fast responding. The only issue I have with Painter the lag time, depending on what you’re doing. (Scale)

Been revamping my site and its taking longer than I expected. But that sucker is on it’s way to being done. With the New Year I hope to do a sketch a day, and this here is the start of it. We’ll see if I can keep the momentum up. I was going to do a…
Here is an illustrator illustration that was done for a friends wedding. They printed these head shots out and made pins out of them. For guests of the party to know who's friend you were. Lisa is a designer with Mission Pets Inc., they design and manufacture clothing for pets.
You can see my really rough sketch below the ink. I tend to be super sloppy penciling and get lost in areas that smudge. So I often use multi-colored pencils so I can see what I was attempting to accomplish.
