Custom Drawings for Free (OFFER EXPIRED)

3

[EDIT: The offer for free drawings was made a long time ago. That offer has, understandably, expired. Thank you!]

Recently I have been creating custom drawings for friends on Facebook for free, and it’s been a wonderful experience!  People are happy to see fun, creative artwork being created almost daily and it gives me tons of practice.

The first person I created artwork for was Tiara Brown, since she’s been on me for a few months to create a drawing of her.  Here is the final artwork, made with Staedtler drawing pencils.

And here is a comparison of the final portrait piece alongside the photo of Tiara I grabbed from her Facebook albums.

As a special offer to those who read my blog, I’m extending this free, custom artwork offer to you.  Just leave a comment on this post with your request and I will add it to my “free artwork for friends” queue.

I will be updating this blog more faithfully, bringing you more news and artwork than before.  It’s time to turn over a new leaf.  It is a new year, after all.  So be expecting awesomeness in the days to follow.

Have a wonderful New Year and may 2012 give you joy and success, bring prosperity to the heart and mind of all people, and not let the world be destroyed this year.  Darn you, ancient Mayans!

Visiting Joy Lynn

1

Yesterday, after work, my sister and I visited Joy Lynn of the Whipple Company Store & Museum We had a nice chat before we had to part ways, my sister and I home, and Joy back to Florida, today.

The hat is by the illustrious Charlotte Lynn. :) You’ve probably seen or heard of her on my site – in artwork, promo videos, etc. She’s a great friend of mine. Thanks for the present, C!

And oh, also note my epic “New Team Member” banner on my Sheetz nametag – it let’s EVERYONE know I’m a newbie. :)

Man Without Coffee

Don’t let this happen to you – a lack of sleep, too much computer, and no coffee can ruin a man.

What with the filters having run out and not being in the mood for the bitter instant white tea, I’ve settled for an aloe vera drink, water, hot chocolate, black cherry tea… well, let’s just say I’m not too bad off. (more…)

Bugly Jumps! – Animation Test #2 with Blender

So I’ve finished my second animation test with Blender!  After much trail and tribulation, it’s done, complete with a rigged character, shape keys, moving background (thanks to a great texture from CGTextures.com,) more-complex scene, eyes, UV-mapped body (texture painted with Gimp,) and, last but not least, sound effects from Freesound.org!

Here it is – enjoy and please comment!
