How's everyone doing? I've been a member for some time, but never really have the time to put together any meaningful threads, so I generally just
read and comment.
Then it dawned on me--the least I could do is post up a few images of some art I've created over the past few years for you guys to check out. At
least this will give me a number higher than zero for the number of threads I've created, so there's that.
Hopefully you like them...the one of my son goes back 10 years, whereas the eagle was created using a Wacom tablet and Photoshop about 2 years ago. I
haven't really had the time to do much since then, which is a shame, because I love drawing, and people tell me I'm good at it.
Anyhoo, here you go. Thanks for looking, and have a dandy day!
This was an attempted self portrait. I had done about 3 of a similar fashion (eyes and nose) prior to this one, so I just figured I'd add a little
expression into it.
This is of my son at 1 year old. It is hanging in my mom's house, hence the framing--it was a Christmas present that only cost me time and a bit of
charcoal. Sorry for the soft focus :/
The two sons of a family friend who was retiring from the Army, so I drew this for her retirement and it was presented to her at the ceremony. I'm
not a fan of pats on the back, so it was a bit uncomfortable for me to sit there while it was presented. She liked it, though, and it's always fun to
make people cry good tears!
This was done while in Alaska. There was a poster on the wall, so I figured I'd try to used my tablet and Photoshop to recreate the eagle. There are
about 20 different layers in this, and I think I did a decent job recreating the colors. I added more dramatic shadows for a better lighting effect. I
think it turned out okay for a guy who generally draws in more than 50 shades of grey.
Anyhoo, I have a lot more I could post, but thought this would at least break the water of creating threads and let you all know there's more to me
than just opinionated (but fact-based, of course) ramblings on political and social issues.
Keep on keepin' on!
