Playing with color

Just some more doodles. Maybe if I can do enough of these I will start getting intuitive about coloring. That's what I'm hoping anyway.

A couple little things

I recently made myself a sketchbook

Sparrow and vinca flower on the cover:

Also, I've been messing around with a self-portrait. I don't have a version of it that I am happy with yet, but here are some trys:

Panoramic Planet Project :P

I've been meaning to do this one for a long time. The massive amount of photos I took for this project have been sitting in my "future projects" folder for a little over year. Anyway I finally felt like messing with it, so here it is! My little Home planet, photos from september 2010:

If you wanna try, the tutorial I followed for this is here
Imo it works best if pics are taken with overcast lighting.

A little Skribble

I saw this contest on DeviantArt, it involved making a picture out of some lines. It looked like fun, so I "Skribble"d. Brought back memories of games I played in school and with friends and siblings, many many years ago :p


and my drawing:

Smileys and color doodles.

Here are a couple things I have been doodling.

The other evening I made this batch of smiley faces with different expressions, to be used as (sort of) flash cards for Michael and I to use to practice portuguese words for feelings and faces and related subjects. (Sorry about the bad photos, didn't want to bother with the scanner for these.):

assorted smiley face tiles

For some reason I was having difficulty with a "sleepy" that didn't look "bored" or "feverish" that night, haha: failed sleepys

I have been trying to focus more on color this year, so besides trying to pay more attention to it in real life, I've been trying to add more color to my doodles and sketches, in an effort to make color more fun and intuitive for me, and less "fill-in-the-lines" :P

Was up all night making a blog header and messing with the layout codes, so that I could inaugurate this new art blog!
