Done for Doughfaced

I have recently got into drawing and watercoloring pig portraits. Last night I made an original to sell on Etsy. I used to sell original artworks that are done on Synonym paper for $25, but I upped it to $30. Not much of a difference, but I think I should start gradually raising the price of my originals. I feel that art should be accessible to everyone, though, so unless my art becomes high demand [which I rather highly doubt] they will never get too pricey. I also think that I sell my artwork at such a low price because I have art related esteem issues, but that's a whole other ball game.

Man...I really do rant a lot for this being an art blog and all.

Hello Handsome

Sort of inspired by Yi Chen and Jenny Saville, though it doesn't appear so (because it sort of sucks). I think I just need to be more extreme with the distortion. Why am I never extreme enough?
Here's the original image I used as a loose reference.
Sleep time!

My first digital doodle in oodles of months. I kind of hate it, but it's important to show progress or some bologna like that. This was a very random drawing...not inspired by anything and only continued to some sort of conclusion out of frustration. Anyway, it was kind of nice using my tablet again. I should make an effort to continue using it, do at least one sketchy digital painting a week...or something like that. Maybe that will assist me in getting out of my aforementioned 'funk'.

Urgh, I bet when I look at this on my laptop monitor (as opposed to my super high contasty and bright computer monitor) it's going to look so dull, which will also frustrate me.

Lately I've been feeling a little...

...Bird brained.
I want out of this funk.
