Art WIPs

Well, we're midway through my first week doing the full-time artist gig, and I gotta admit I haven't been working full time on my art...*wry grin* I got sidetracked by a couple of projects, one of which is planning a trip to Las Vegas the middle of April. I decided that before I began another job, I wanted to go somewhere fun that I haven't been before. Vegas has always been on my list of places to go and as a bonus, Dawn n' family were going to be there the week of April 17th. So hey...I can have fun in Vegas and finally get to meet and hang out with Dawn! How cool is that?? ^_^ *GLEE* I'll be going the 18th through the 21st...only three days, but I'm gonna pack a lot in! :D

Anyways, I have been getting some art done, though...here's some wips of what I'm currently working on....

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Here is a partly painted companion piece to my Spring Cameo...Summer Cameo is about half-way done. I have to put her aside for the moment to work on Namaste and the ACEO, but I will pick her up again next week.

Here's the sketch of my sister piece to Beauty of Spring...Sunkissed actually has the first couple of washes on her, but I didn't feel like scanning her tonight. *lol* She's about one-quarter done, and I will finish her up next week after Summer Cameo.

Here is the painting I have to finish tomorrow. I know the line work doesn't look like much, because the background will be celestial, and the tiger is walking on a path of stars, none of which I'm actually drawing...that all comes in when I paint. But this will be my Big Cat entry for the Fantasy Artists Care show at our group at Care2.com. I originally intended for there just to be a tiger, but this is one of those paintings that totally got away from me...*lol*

*phew* I've got two more paintings in my head that I hope I will be able to paint in the next two weeks...Lightning Strike (a darker, gothic piece) and a mermaid painting. If I can actually keep myself on schedule, I'll be totally happy! *grin* But for now, it's bedtime!

They are looking beautiful Deb. Very nice work on the tiger!
I am starting to know how you feel with lots of pictures bursting to get out...I have suddenly had a flow of ideas & I had to buy a cheap sketchpad just to get them down in rough form. Inspiration has never really hit that big before...hehe! I think there's about 6 so far....I'm getting as bad as you.
Oh by the way, I did a couple of quick sketches of you from the 'gothy' photos. They aren't bad. I want to touch a few bits up but I'll post them here soon for you to give your opinion!!
I'm thinking of using one in a painting too....so lets hope you approve! LOL!

LOL Yes, you're such a distraction, Dawn! *grin* I can't wait, either!!! *bounces up n' down*

And I hope my big cats painting turns out...I'm working on the starry background, and it's harder than I thought it would be...*is worried* Well, I'll have to pull it off somehow...I don't have time to do anything else! *lol*
