Dinovember 02 2016

Posted on Nov 2, 2016 in Doodles/Sketches, Monthly Challenge

Todays dino is the Kosmoceratops. You can’t tell in this picture very well, but the top of the frill folds down, and the spikes on the fold point down. It is also different from most other dinos in the ceratop family in that it’s horns on top point forward. I did this with pencil on...

Dinovember 01 2016

Posted on Nov 1, 2016 in Doodles/Sketches, Monthly Challenge

So there is this thing that some artists do called Inktober. It is a reason to draw something (in ink) every day for the month of October. I always intend to to it, but I never get around to it… However a comic artist (that I follow on twitter) just made a list of dinosaurs for Dinovember. Well… that is a call that I cannot ignore. So I am...

Manga Studio Test – Day 3

Posted on Oct 20, 2016 in Digital Ink

I make a quick sketch. My goal was to edit the colour of the ink lines… I decided to look it up online and promptly fell down a tutorial rabbit hole… an hour later and I still don’t know how to do what I wanted to do. Next time I...

Test Pumpkin

Posted on Oct 18, 2016 in Digital Ink, Digital Paint

I’ve been running photoshop CS3 up until now. I would have continued to use it, but it won’t install on my new Mac. I won’t be signing up for adobe creative cloud because I don’t need all the extra services that justifies a subscription service. I just want a tool that I can buy once and use indefinitely. I would have kept using CS3...

Talk Like A Pirate 2016

Posted on Sep 19, 2016 in Chalk Art

Happy “International Talk Like A Pirate Day” everyone! Working chalk on a chalkboard is completely different from working on concrete or pavement. Smudging doesn’t work well at all, it just wipes right off, even if you are verrry gentle. Did you know that I made two official “Talk Like A Pirate” games? This one was in 2010. It...

Chalkboards!

Posted on Sep 17, 2016 in Chalk Art

So some while back I managed to get my hands on a pair of chalk boards. They were attached to metal stands. I was using one as a giant to-do list and note pad. Thanks to a friend (Dave Heninger of Heninger Woodworks) that helped me build some frames/supports, I now have them both mounted on the wall. I don’t have any drawings to show you yet, but I...

Medicine Hat Chalk-Art Festival 2016

Posted on Aug 16, 2016 in LookAtThis

This last weekend I was in Medicine Hat as a featured artist in the Chalk-Art Festival. I had so much fun. I will definitely go again next year. For the large piece I redrew my dinoride illustration (It is still one of my favorites) on a 6×4 foot rectangle. For the artists there were sections of the road prepped with a washable paint. We had two...

Yes. This has been me. I have done this… and suddenly I notice I never drew he bubble for the words in the second panel… oh well. I don’t want to fix it right...
