In a Nutshell
Tuesday, February 01, 2005
The colored pics were drawn with a Papermate ballpoint pen on plain white bond and with whatever crayons and semi-dried up markers I could find in my son's junk box. I haven't bought my Wacom Intuos 3 tablet yet so I don't dare color with Photoshop. I did manage to put in the grey gradient and the solid grey as well as all the text in the photos using an old copy of Paint Shop Pro. My shading needs work.
This one was a quick sketch w/ pen and again the crayons - I was not going to use it because someone else already did a rhino and bird symbiotic thing but then I thought "Oh what the heck..."
Papermate ballpoint on white bond... I also sketched a pencil version of this and I really want to color it so I might post it here later if I like how it turns out... as I said, my shading needs work...
I guess I could use this for Friendship too (overkill!!!) because my mom and I have a friendship. This is a pencil sketch I did of my mother a couple of years ago. I'm still trying to teach myself how to shade and since this one was done, I've discovered what a blending stomp is! I wish I could go back to fix the pic but I gave it to my mother for her birthday. She put it in a very nice frame and it hangs in her bedroom.
