Found time to wrap this up this evening…somehow.

Some more doodles and stuff.

Bit of an update from this weekend.  This painting has been challenging form me, for some reason…but I’m not going to give up. :)

Kok (clay pestle and mortar), sticky rice basket, and fresh fruit and veggies. Yep, I’m really missing Laos right about now! :)

The last two weeks have been so busy, it all seemed to fly by.  Between some freelance work, going to AX, and starting a contract job at an animation studio this month, I’ve been swamped.  
Lately, I’ve been carrying around some pens and a small moleskine notebook with me, with the intention to:
A) Force myself to be more confident with lines - all pens, no pencil.
B) Sketch from life as often as possible, ideally every day!  Many of these are quick studies of people going about their daily lives, at coffee shops, parks, and even some cosplayers from AX made it into here. :)
In only two and a half weeks, I’ve nearly filled up an 80 page notebook, and still have two more to unwrap!  These are a few of my favorite sketches from the last few weeks.

Cleaned up some sketches this afternoon while waiting on some client feedback.

starting to paint this alleyway scene - double checking the perspective to get it just right!

Finished: grumpy big sister.  Outfit ideas.

Did these 20 rough sketches tonight… going to pick 5 or 10 of them to clean up.
