Sorry for the late post! I have been so busy getting ready for CTN! Anyway here is a little something this week! Enjoy!

CTN 2013

Sorry for the lack of posts on everyone’s part! We’ve all been swamped with work, school and getting ready for CTN this year! We aren’t exhibiting as a group but the amazing Gillian Reid will have a table that you should definitley stop by if you are attending the expo this weekend! Hope to see some of you there! 

Back to weekly/bi-weekly posting after this weekend hopefully!

Title: “Being the Son of Mr. Hyde”

Threw together this little dude for a project i’m working on. And let me tell you, its going to be a very hard life being the son of mr hyde, oh boy is it.

Pretty sweet stuff this past week! going for something a bit darker this week! hmmm i wonder what this might bring forth in everyones imaginations???

*UPDATE* I forgot to say that this is a 2 week challenge now!!

Week 5 Challenge

Title: “Hallo-ween”

I know this is a bit late for week 5, but as soon as I saw the orange colors I wanted to save uploading this drawing for today. Felt like drawing a witch with her businessman turned into a cat sidekick. 

Week 5 Challenge

Title: “The Monkey King”

I thought that since I missed last weeks challenge that I would get this done early, but fate thought otherwise! So now it is late! I was inspired by the tale of the monkey king and thought I’d give him a go. With this piece I also played around with some simple shapes and crude edges, I’ll get the hang of it one of these old days. And I swear this weeks color is in there somewhere haha! Enjoy!

Week 5 Challenge

Title: “Oceanic Migration!”

just trying out some new brushes as I threw together this little dude super last minute! whoops!

Challenge #5

Nice work last week! (And just FYI NEXT members, if you want to do the challenges in a different week thats totally cool! just make sure and tag it with the week that the piece coincides with!) Lets see what these “Orangey” Tints and Tones inspire in us!

Mama Bear & Baby Bear

For this challenge I thought I’d try to do something with the cool shape that was posted, and it immediately made me think of bears for some reason. This was a good shape and line exercise for me, so it was a lot of fun.
