Post-It Art

Life's been a little crazy lately. I did finally upgrade my iMac computer and I <3 it oh so much! Only thing is I lost all my CS3 software...hmm looking at buying CS5 for a $499 student price...Donations anyone? Lol.

Oh so this was a fast sketch with red and green pens.

The Dragon Slayer

Back in 2008, I drew the sketch below.

I never forgot it since it vividly struck an image in my brain. Of course as with everything else, it was pushed back into my obscure memory until I had uncovered that sketch under a big pile of papers. So again I was re-inspired and drew the second sketch in 2009 but it fizzled out...

Since trying to get back to drawing I remembered this one piece and has been on my to-do list for several reasons. I plan to draw it out on 11 x 17 and practice coloring it digitally. It is time to tackle my fears of drawing an entire page/story on a large format. I get overwhelmed with what angle, which perspective, and oh God, what background to draw that it freaks me out so much and I don't think I can see it through. That's just silly so time to grow some balls and just DRAW the damn thing!

Research: Alphonse Mucha

I did a fast image search on Mucha. His style has been an inspiration for me since discovering him in my art history class...especially since we both seem to share a love for long, flowing hair! Here are some great examples I found:
