Destrier

I’ve been trying to practice layering with ink pencils, and also mixing media more often.

I found a picture of a mounted archer and decided to practice with the intense ink sticks–big unwieldy things–forcing myself to rely on bigger, sweeping strokes of vivid color. After I accidentally dumped out my–carefully arranged and color coded–case and having to painstakingly find each stick’s proper home, I got to work.

It was good practice for me. Didn’t come out too awful, either.

It’s been a bit crazy for me the past few months. I’m just now starting to get enough traction to write again–put out a couple hundred words the other night! Baby steps, right? The past couple days have also seen me working on some watercolor pieces. I’m attempting to come up with and capture more headlining-type art for this blog. It’s harder than you would think. It’s almost like cover design.

I’m fairly happy with how this picture of Zare and Hook is coming, but it’s not yet what I was imagining. And…it’s not a header image, not in this form, anyhow.

Night Horse art

I promise story is coming, but today’s progress was deleting 900 words. Yeah, it was one of those times.

I was on a trip recently and produced this ink pencil horse in black. I was thinking about Hook and the Black Stallion and van Gogh’s Starry Night. Though I guess that last one is hard to imagine!

doldrums

Late Spring/early Summer is apparently a rough time on my writing! IĀ apologize for the interrupted posting. It’s when all the travel wraps up that I tumble flat on my creative face and find that coloring books are about all I can manage. That and practicing my penmanship.

I promise I’m working on the story, too.

I even drew a little from scratch this week.
