March 15, 2020

Ah yes, the grind must go on! This week I spent some time working on the lace adornment on the cover wraps of the Maria Clara gown. The gown is being worn by the Dalaga in my illustration “Ang Dalaga and the Royal Baby.” I’m not entirely sure if what I did is realistic enough, […]

I’ve been somewhat of a busy bee this week; First up, I’ve made some progress on my long grind paintings. “Ang Dalaga and the Royal Baby’s” background sketch is finished. I can almost call the line art finished, but I still have to do the Maria Clara gown for the girl. As for “The Guardian,” […]

Part of me feels I really need to simplify the background more, but I don’t want to have to go back to the […]

Sketchbook Update 01.19.2020

January 19, 2020

2020 is chugging along nicely with the speed paints, especially with the 30-minute speed paints. What I was missing, however, are my 2-3 hour speed paints. I haven’t had the chance to work on a much longer speed paint since about two days before 2019 ended. I have been meaning to get to it, but […]
