Just a quick check in with for 30 day challenge stuff

This week has been crazy.  Going back to work, the Like Water 2015 event is next weekend (YOU SHOULD COME TO IT), beginning to plan for our John Muir Trail hike this summer and researching ultralight backpacking, beginning to plan for an ongoing art and flea market that I'd like to get started at Freeflow, new art ideas, kettlebell and leg training and of course this 30 day art challenge.  I really wish there were more time in the day so that I could do all of these things with the time they deserve instead of squeezing them in to my normal work/training schedule.  Plus, we are getting one of my room mates caught up on Game of Thrones, so who even has time anymore?

Today I am just throwing up this weeks art challenge work; I have a few actual painting outlines/pencils that I would like top post in the next week of so as I complete the pencil work. 

To the challenge!

 Prompt is to  redesign a book cove  r .  My little home scanner did not do the watercolor justice unfortunately.

 Prompt was  a childhood memor y.  When I was 11 or so, my family bought property in Colorado to begin, I dunno, farm living?  The dirt road was lined with sunflowers.  It was a pretty treacherous dirt road, and one day I flew over the handlebars of my bike as I was going down a hill.  Sunflowers overwhelmed my vision.

 Prompt is a  superhero .  Look, a heroic Arrow Lady! Pink! More exploring digital stuff via tracing. As you can tell, there is a margin of error in the beginning.

 And today's prompt was a super villain. Getting better with stuff.  Only used a reference to trace for a bare outline and then elaborated on my own.   And look how superbly villainous she is!  it even says "Evil" on the page, that's totally how you can tell she is a villain.

One thing I really like about this whole tablet thing is that I am able to quickly exercise how to just block out shapes.  I'm still at that point where I feel like a toddler learning how to draw, and dependent on a reference, but progress will be made!!!

Anyways, stick around for more updates, and have a great week!
