Day 6 Folklore, my sixth ink drawing for October. Black Cats and full moons have always been associated with folklore and myth, especially bad luck and/or strange things happening. #inktober2017 #drawlloween2017 #octobersketch

Catch  up again…I Love this kitty. It turned out so much better than I expected from the sketch. What do you think? #inktober2016 #drawlloween2016

P.G. Is Completed… Finally!

I want to apologize for my hiatus of the past couple of weeks. I actually went on vacation, a first in a very long time.

Yeah!!! I am so elated to be finally done with this one. The hope was to finish this one quickly, oops (someone forgot to give that memo to my toddler).

It was smaller than the portraits I completed as of late, 8.5″ x 8″ approximately. Media was Oyster Canson Mi Tientes. I think the colored paper complimented the colors in P.G. well. I had some difficulty working on such a smaller size, keeping with my usual detailed approach. I think larger pieces though challenging at the same time may be easier for detail. As with most of my work a sharp point is extremely important and with a smaller size even more so. I did find that I had to slowly build up the media and do some mixing of colors mainly through pencil application. This was tedious but the result was well worth it.

I hope that this gift goes over well; surprises and thrills all at the same time. What do you think?

Back to P.G.

I am back to P.G. hoping I can finish this soon and begin work on an adorable baby chimp. Having some difficulty getting the correct mixes of oranges and creams. I am amazed by all the colors that are browns in my pastels… some are gold, rusty or just gray. I wonder if its taking longer since its a gift whereas a commissioned piece seems to fly. The good news: It looks like I am closer than I am to finishing if you look at it from further away. So maybe I am getting close, though I still have a ways to go.

Headache After Headache….

I apologize if this comes across as a complaint or whining. I have been dealing with headache after headache, due to the weather and some muscle issue. One of these days I will hunker down and illustrate how a migraine feels visually. I have had a frustrating week progress wise. Any ways Friday was supposed to be a work day, but due to a headache and faulty lighting in my studio, I didn’t make much progress. Sadly my lighting woes won’t improve for about a week or so. My back up bulbs, apparently were already being used. And of course they are special and had to be ordered. So reinforcing the idea to check supplies and make sure I am prepared. This time I hope I have learned my lesson.

Cats don’t like water, diving in anyways

"P.G.", update #2 ©2012 alecia goodman to present

Making some progress today, I dove in head first and just ran with it. Here is update #2 on the latest portrait project. I am really liking the direction of the eyes. Having some difficulty with keeping my pencils sharp for the detail. I really hate it when my pencils keep breaking down in the sharpener. I am sure this won’t be the last and it isn’t the first either. No worries I still like the new sharpener, I think its the pencil this time. I still wonder if this is going faster than the larger drawings, which I have to admit, I prefer working larger. If I can hit the mark on this one I will have to try more smaller projects, especially if it takes less time.
