I’ve pretty much got the first layer down and can move on to refining the basic shadows and lights.

I’m considering writing up some tutorials of some description. Not sure just what exactly yet, but it’s something to think about.

Tabby Cat ACEO

Wednesday, Feb. 1st 2012 3:30 PM

Here’s a quick little ACEO I started last night and finished earlier today:


I should have more of the site completed in the coming days. I’m losing a couple of hours working time each night due to the arrival of my new TV which has enabled me to adventure in Skyrim once more. Maybe I can learn to draw with my feet…

Rough Collie, finished.

Pastel dog portrait.

There are a few things I’m not entirely pleased with, but on the whole I’m happy with it. I could pick at it endlessly. But I won’t.

Collie update.

First layer of the collie almost complete:

Next step is to spray it with fixative and start work on the next layer, adding more darks and lights.

Progress of the collie portrait:

I didn’t have much time to work on it yesterday, and it’s been quite some time since I’ve used pastels at all, but I’m pleased with how it’s coming along. The eyes need some more work… they don’t match up well.
