Yet often, in the evening hours, the five sisters would twine their arms round each other, and rise to the surface, in a row. They had more beautiful voices than any human being could have; and before the approach of a storm, and when they expected a ship would be lost, they swam before the vessel, and sang sweetly of the delights to be found in the depths of the sea, and begging the sailors not to fear if they sank to the bottom.
-Hans Christian Andersen, "The Little Mermaid"
A small study from my Snow White painting.
A toned drawing of Tinkerbell for my 2016 sketchbook. I hope to have it all ready for GenCon this year!
A sneak peek of a tutorial I will be sharing in my new sketchbook
Happy Mermaid Monday! I think I need to set this one aside for a few days before I add the final touches.
A little preliminary sketch of one of my favorite characters in literature. If you guessed Captain Hook from yesterday's post, you got it right!
It seemed inappropriate to have mermaids in my fairytale book, and not paint the portrait of a regal ship captain. Can anyone guess who I’m painting next?
I have finally finished the third piece in my fairytales & lore series. I am getting excited for my sketchbook this year!
The underpainting is finally complete, and I think I'm about ready to start adding some color!
Sneak peek of an underpainting for my 2016 sketchbook
Some working images for my 2016 sketchbook. Unlike previous years, this book will showcase the completed process from sketch to underpainting to completed work, along with at least one tutorial on techniques in glazing.
