Upping my Game

This is a term that can have a few mening, the one i'm concerned about is my skill level with my art. In my efforts to surround myself with more artistic influences i found that there are great deal of artists, whom i admire, are virtually non-existant on the web, or the updates of their work on line is so infrequent, that i often forget they are there.
So of the artists that i did find are phenomenal. i man their work is so well crafted that's it's easy to see why they are working professionally. And that's when it hit me, i needed to"Up my Game". The render below is of "Matt Damon", i seriously question the likeness, and even the composition, but that wasn't the point. The effort below was attempt to recall the skills of rendering, proportions, and basic composition. all skills that will aid in any effort no matter what type of illustration you do. Now this version took i think about 45 minutes, maybe but you can see fro the results i hope i'm headed in the right direction.

peace out

Working Space

i've tried every spot in the house, to find a place to draw. and this seems to be the only one where nobody actually bothered me. oh, they would come in, look, and quietly leave. imagine, do you want to bother someone that has set up thier studio, in a walk in closet? a small one at that. that person has been chased from every reasonable place to draw and this is the is the last stop.

the great thing, i'm getting more stuff done in the closet, sitting on a bucket, with an oversized clipboard, than i did with a real professional setup. but hey, i ain't got it like jim lee....yet. ;)

peace out

Back From Reality, into the Dream...

when i last posted here i was prepareing for the holidays and adjusting to life without a stable income. well the holidays are over, and i'm still adjusting to an unstable income. listing all the miracles that have taken hold of my family, and being able to be led through all the...noise, we collect in just a year, is more infromation than i want to type. however, God has a sense of humor, He loves me. and like His child he wants the best for me. (actually in the beginig he us the world.) but still i've been unable to pay my rent for over four months now and i still have roof over my head. because He comes through when i need Him. everytime.

now, as for the noise. it's all the things we get "distracted" with that we think are important, but are not. and because of that noise we miss things. oppurtunities, family, friends and just wasting our time from enjoying life. so i took some time before christmas to tune out that noise. and i began to see my life is going in different direction. granted i stepped out on faith, of a prayer i've been asking for the last 2 or 3 years ago, but it was still on faith. so there was no way i could see how the "dream" i had, of using my talents to earn a living for my family, could come to life. but again, God has a plan. it was by any human terms, " ARE YOU COMPLETELY OUT OF YOUR MIND!", type of plan. but when stars and planets form at the sound of your voice. and you can mold people from clay. hey, it's your plan. go for it.

so the run down, for those of you that believe, be encouraged to trust in the Lord. whatever it is he will see you through. for those that don't. i used to be where you are. and even where you are you're still His perfect creation, and He is still calling you to come home to Him.

peace out
