Back to the beginning....

for Sugar Skull...

I just haven't found the motivation to work on this all over again that's why it's taking so long just to get to the point just before I started painting on the other one. But I do think the *re*drawing turned out much better on this version. Hopefully there won't be any product malfunctions like before, if there are... I guess we'll just have to wait till I cross that bridge.

Sketches in Blue

Definitely going to paint this, maybe even do a series. Instead of the traditional bold colors, I’m thinking muted pale shades, white hair, pink eyes or pale blue eyes. I want it to look very painterly.

Heading to Dragon*Con? Sadly I won't be there but this postcard will be!

What’s that on the back… could it be an exclusive discount code for my Etsy shop?

Hopefully next year I'll be there.

Think I'm calling her "Capt. Jasmine"

New sketch for a painting I'll probably start transferring today on some of that new Crescent Watercolor Board. I'm kinda excited about it. Inspired from a themed sketchbook commission from GenCon.

I've decided that it would probably be a good investment to get a tablet pc so that when I'm doing commissions at shows I can look up reference for details.

GenCon Indy [ReCap]

By far GenCon 2012 was the best yet. For the first time since I started doing shows I was actually ready, I got everything finished that I wanted to have done, no rushing around at the last minute like a chicken with my head cut off!

I'm just going to link to my GenCon 2012 photo album on my facbook because really don't want to have to upload and code all of the photos.
[ GenCon 2012 Photos ]

Also here is one of the bags I did for the Nerdherderspodcast.com.

I want to Thank everyone that made it out to my booth and bought a print, original sketch or one of the framed paintings on my wall.

If you have plans to be at Dragon*Con my friend's husband is going and he'll be putting out some freebie postcards from me that also has an exclusive coupon for my Etsy store. So be on the look out.

New Merchandise for GenCon :: KeyRings

Only two more days to work on stuff till we leave for Indy on Wednesday.

Thursday, July 12, 2012

Countdown has begun!

34 days till GenCon... 25 Days to finish all of the work I've been working on.

• I'm currently working on a painting that, till I actually started painting it was turning out really nice, then the board started falling apart. I'm desperately trying to make it work, so much went into the line work, that starting over isn't an option.

• I started 'The Chase', still need to refine the line work then it'll be ready to paint.

• I have a little goth girl character my friend Holly's daughter 'Gabby' that I really want to get done.

• I'd like to do some Game of Thrones Fan Art if there's time.

• I'd like to have another sketchbook to offer again this year but... I'm not sure that's going to happen.

• Since I have a large booth again this year I need to buy more frames to bring a whole bunch more art - last year I didn't bring enough and had to put prints up on my wall.

Once I've finished the painting on the bad board I'll post progress shots, and a little back story about the board and how Crescent really stepped up to keep a long time customer happy.

I now have a tumblr acct and seem to post there quite a bit these days. http://conniefaye.tumblr.com/ (it also cross posts to my twitter)

The Chase...

Ok, here's a better view of my sketch along with some of the references I used. What really inspired me this time was the middle reference. The shot of her horses face.

I'm hoping to have a painting of this completed before we leave for GenCon.

The Chase... Sketch

Earlier in the week I was watching 'Fellowship of the Ring', it seems like that movie is always inspiring me in some way.

I need to scour the web or rewatch that sequence to see if I can get a glimpse of her trousers, and the details of the saddle & bridle.

I'm pretty pleased with the sketch... which means I should probably paint it. Hopefully I'll have it done before GenCon.

New Personal Work

This little fairy was inspired by a sketchbook drawing I did the week before last.

Yesterday all I did was work on the background. I had an idea of what I wanted, I worked at it, and worked at it, but by the end of the day it was crap. I really didn’t want to have to scrap all of the work I had already put into the pencils. Since I had used liquid mask to cover the figure, I thought… Gesso! I guess it was the perfect opportunity to try something I hadn’t done before… and I absolutely LOVE the way this turned out. Yay for happy mistakes. =) After this little experiment you can bet I'll be doing more of this.

The Passing of Mœbius

"Drawing is a revelation of the soul"...

The Art World has lost a priceless jewel; Mœbius aka Jean Henri Gaston Giraud, born 8 May 1938 and sadly passed away today 10 March 2012. A visionary, an artistic genius, one of the founders of 'Métal Hurlant' / 'Heavy Metal' magazine, concept artist, and comic book artist - he created some of the most stunning Sci-Fi and Fantasy art ever created. His wonderful art has inspired generations of artists, myself included.

You know his work even if you've never realized it.

Below is a biography that aired on the BBC some years ago

New Painting

I still haven't come up with a name for it yet beyond "untitled crying blue girl". What about "don't tell me I told you so".

You can see a larger version here: http://rustdangel.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d4s20sw

This is for my Promo Card for the March 24th Show in Carol Stream IL.

New Art! "Kristy"

Another friend that has inspired me.

I'll be posting it on my deviant art acct here shortly (I still need to scan it).

TOR has eaten my brain...

Not really but it's a breath of fresh pixels compared to how stale and boring WoW had become. So you can probably guess there's going to be lots of SWTOR fan art of my character coming soon.

Here's a little doodle of her I did the other day.


Also in the works:

Soon I should be receiving that skate deck I ordered sometime in December, so be on the look out for progress pictures of that. I have a few portraits on my table I've been working on (most likely a video will be shot during painting), and... Final Twilight is getting a reboot and I'll be doing a few cards for that as well.

Also hopefully I can get on the Hobbit sketch card list. *crosses fingers* But we'll have to see my last dealings with Topps wasn't that great, but I love Lord of the Rings / Middle Earth / especially drawing Gandalf. *sigh*

I'm thinking about completely overhauling my galleries. That itself is a HUGE undertaking. *sigh*

I hope the new year has been good to everyone.

Today is my cat's 21st. birthday.
Happy Birthday Vern
