Last Man Standing 3

The competition of the year is underway! Several hundred artists have completed entries for the topic "Underneath It All" and are currently being judged by a panel of distinguished judges. We had several months and the freedom to interpret the topic however we chose. There is a TON of excellent work that was produced for the first round. The entries may be viewed on the website in the Finally Finished section.

For my entry, I chose to work with the traditional mediums of watercolor and colored pencil. I began with a polished graphite sketch and a watercolor under painting. Layers of colored pencil were then applied to provide the final details.

Happy New Year!

Had some down time for the holidays and created a new digital piece. This is still in progress and I probably won't get around to finishing it until later this month. I have several ideas ready to illustrate so 2008 is shaping up to be a productive year. Convention season is also right around the corner which is always exciting. There are also several other illustration and gallery activities in the works so I will post with more info soon!
