Yesterday was a writing day. Today is a drawing day. Worked out some mental kinks with a portrait of Gabriel Macht as Harvey Specter in Suits. I got sucked into the third season.
I’m taking a little break from writing today. I’ve only written about 600 words of the 1000 that I normally like to get out in a day but eh, my mind is elsewhere and I’m not going to sweat it. I’m still new to this digital portrait painting… so many brushes to choose from! I have no idea how to use half of them and end up using the same three over and over. I should ask someone else who does digital painting what brushes they like to use.
The giveaway contest for Caged ends in less than 12 hours! So exciting. Tomorrow is the launch of the paperback edition – I know some people will be very happy about that.
I’ve been writing “Author & Artist” everywhere but I realized just earlier that I haven’t actually showed you any of my art.
I consider myself primarily a portrait painter. That’s what I’ve been doing since I was old enough to hold a brush – paint people. However, I’ve been doing far more graphic design work than actual painting in the past few years. Most of the stuff I do is pretty mainstream corporate-type logos, but I also do digital portraits. The cover for Caged is my own design.
Lately, however, I dusted off the old Wacom tablet and started doing illustrations for my writing, and drawing a lot of NSFW stuff in general.
