Here are progress shots of my recent watercolor and colored pencil badge I did for Brophey. 

I started off with a digital sketch with the font placed approximately how I wanted it (I made some changes while coloring because that Y looks like a V when inking). I started off with the background which was a sepia wash and some kosher salt left to dry to get that the salt star effect and that old timey photo look. What is not shown is that after I did the background, I did a sepia underpainting to block in the shadows, which you can see in the shadows in the second colored pic, especially on his shirt. 

After all the under painting was done, I did very light color glazes to color his shirt, face, bandana, hat, and overalls. After everything’s dry, I can then add the colored pencil detailing.

The text and some of the darker details were done with a brown brush pen. There is no black on this piece whatsoever. I don’t like using black as its the darkest value you can use, so there’s no real backpedaling after that.

Stolen Ayonah Kirin Windstone Editions by Reptangle Reblog this pic please?? It might help me recover this sculpture. I figure the more people see this, the better! This original sculpture was stolen when our car was broken into, in a parking lot in Lodi California, USA. This figurine is made of unpainted white gypsum ( dense, heavy plaster) , may or may not be mounted on a clear plexiglass plate. He has some bolt holes in the bottom. He probably no longer has the horn, because it wasn’t glued in. He is about 10 inches long. Maybe it ended up in a junk shop or yard sale or something?? I haven’t given up.

SEND THE LOVE AROUND

A few weeks ago I was feeling pretty down. I was having trouble with a person and I was feeling very underappreciated as an artist, and while I did have my problems, it pissed me a lot. But instead of feeling sorry for myself (for once) I started thinking about other great, awesome artists I followed who could be feeling even shittier and not believing in themselves.

I admire them; each one of them. Each had their own perks that made themselves and what they create special. And I realized that hell, I love being told what people like in my work. Not just “you’re so good”, but “I love the way you draw this and that”. At that moment, I really wished someone would come over and tell me that. How many other artists around weren’t feeling that way, at that moment?

So the messaging started. I never wrote a model message, they were all personal. And the answers were all personal too. People who responded sounded honestly happy someone took time to tell them what they admired in them, and told them never to give up no matter what. The ones who didn’t, well - I know they liked it, because it was from the bottom of my heart.

So after this time debating if I should write this little thing or not, I made it.  I don’t know if there’s anythig similar around, but if it does, take this as a reinforcement. It’s not a campaign, nor a meme, nor will it grant you favours from your favorite artists. Please, don’t do anything if it’s for interest. Instead, look at the artist as another human being who struggles with daily life and yet make such beautiful things you admire so much. Call them by their name, tell them what you like in them. Or draw, paint, write or compose a lil’ something for them. Doesn’t matter. Show appreciation.

Send the love around to those who inspire you.

(sorry for any mistakes, English is not my mother tongue and it’s a bit rusty)

This deserves to be on my main dash, it’s a really good thing. Share some love, you might just make someone’s day and hey, that feels good!

This sums up how I’ve been feeling lately and have reached a similar conclusion but have yet to reach out. I shall!
