Custom Drawings for Free (OFFER EXPIRED)

[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!

Off To Cleveland Again :)

I’m heading off in a few minutes to meet up with my ride to Cleveland again, but this time some friends and I are going to help a family move from Cleveland to West Virginia!  I should be away for a couple days, helping load their truck and whatever else needs being done.

Recently I helped a friend prepare a photo for a contest (sadly I didn’t send it back to her until it was too late – it was taking forever to attach the file.)  Anyhow, the job was relatively simple: remove the people from the background and make the image look stunning.  Well, I didn’t get around to making it look awesome, but the people sure have disappeared.

She was very pleased with the result, and is even going to frame it, so all is well. :) I edited it in GIMP 2.6.6 and used the Clone and Heal tools, as well as blur.

Well, I had better pack for this trip. A ton has happened since this post and my last, including working on my website, (the main part of this site,) visiting Colonial Williamsburg, starting private vlogging, and so forth.

God bless and see you next time!
