Wasteful Reminiscences

 It’s been a while since I’ve been motivated to paint.  But last night, I got the itch again and so I’m going to try to use it to get into the habit again. :)  I finished the book cover a couple months ago but I don’t think I posted it anywhere.  I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.  Now I just have the rest of the book to do. :X

Wow, it’s been a long time.  I figured I’d upload a few of my latest pieces. (Although they may be stretching the term “latest” a bit).  At any rate, I’m currently working on illustrating a children’s book for my niece, the top picture is going to be the cover page.  It’s quite an undertaking, the book will be nearly 30 pages long.  When I originally started it, I had hoped to have it done by Christmas.  It was about a 5 days before Christmas when I realized there was no way I was going to finish on time.  There’s a lot I still need to do on it.  So here’s to shooting for next Christmas. ^^;

I’ll try to post some more pictures from the book as I work. :)

In case you are wondering, I’m painting the children’s book using Painter X3.  I’ve decided to move from Photoshop (which I did the second and third paintings with) to Painter because I felt like I was doing more photo-manipulation than art.  

My current progress on a fantasy painting I started a couple weeks ago.

Some random rough spaceship designs.  I think I’m going to work further on the first and last ones.

I was feeling inspired to work on my line art and perspective last night.  So here’s the result.  I was a bit lazy about the perspective but hopefully everyone can look past that. :X
