I’m enjoying the Inky Leak Brush set I scooped up from GrutBrushes, I have an idea for a whole series of illustrations with them, but that’ll be for another time. For now, I’m just experimenting and getting a feel for what each of them do.
When I sat down to create today, I initially started to make another series of thumbnail/paintover/explorations, but I got distracted by some of the earlier stages and just started having fun. Before I knew it I had something that was really catching my eye and I just rolled with it.
A previous version had her blowing air bubbles out of each sides of her mouth apparatus, like deep sea divers might. I’ll probably revisit the idea, putting her under water, with hair flowing and maybe some pipes/chains flowing out and around her.
Time will tell.
For now, it’s bedtime.

I have at least 1 idea a day that I’m sure will change the world for the better but so far they have all been bad ideas but if I keep this up, I will have had almost 15000 ideas by the time I’m 65. so I’m not losing hope that one of them will […]
I’ve been wanting to get back into photo manipulation for awhile now. Having leveled up my painting skills, I’m interested in seeing how the two will combine.
I guess we’ll see.

Stumbled upon this gem whilst researching website themes and blog integrations. There is so much talent out there. <3
I wasn’t sure where to start.
I had this idea (unclear as it was/is), but just couldn’t seem to figure out the best way to express it. So, instead of sitting around thinking about it, I just started creating.
Creation turns out to be a great place to start creating.
Expect to see more thumbnails in the future while I’m sorting through my blueprints and gathering tools.
The Journey is becoming quite exciting!

It’s been too long.
Finished up a big commission yesterday, really proud how it all came together, hope to be able to share that work soon. In the meantime I’m setting aside time to work on some personal work.
I’ve been putting off creating a website for far too long. So, it’s time to break out the HTML notes and start coding. 😀 The website will be some sort of store, blog, portfolio integration/hybrid. Right now the R&D team is looking into the best route to combine the three.
Until then, I’ll be focusing my efforts on getting the crew ready to blast off unto the unknown.
