Today while on my lunchtime at work I thought I would do a little sketching of Michael Keaton from the Beetlejuice movie. This was my second attempt this week to try and get something good finished. My first attempt was very far from satisfying. And, this is nothing new to me lately because I’ve been struggling with drawing in the last couple of months. I feel like I have been trying to force myself into a different style that I’m just not comfortable with. So, today I thought I would just do a more finished pencil drawing. And I was pretty happy with it. From there I thought I would drop it into Photoshop and try to do some digital painting on it. I just wanted to try a quick painting on top of the drawing. More like a watercolor painting with a transparent layer over the drawing.

From the lack of frequency on my blog you can see that I did not make it through the 30 Paintings in 30 Days challenge. I gave up on it after I realized that this month was just too busy and stressful for me to keep that pace going. I’d do more art than I posted here. There were a few more pieces on my social media. You should follow along with, it’s fun!
One other reason for the lack of art is that I’m just not enjoying what I have been producing, and this has been an issue for a while now. So, the thing I need to start focusing on is fixing this. What that means is still unknown to me.
But, I will keep plugging along. And this piece is a part of that process. It is a watercolor and ink painting of the bounty hunter from Star Wars, Boba Fett. And, here is the non painted version:
Which version do you prefer, ink or painted?

From painting beauties for the last 6 days, to painting a beast.
This is a gouache painting of Frankenstein’s monster from the Universal Studios classic film, staring Boris Karloff. I’m not sure I’m completely happy with the results of this because of the gouache paints. Especially after using watercolors for the last week. I really enjoyed using watercolors, but, I think I will stick with gouache for a few more this week.

Two more days until the new Pixar movie, Finding Dory comes out, and we have one more day of character design studies of Finding Nemo to go after this batch. My personal favorite out of this group is this last one of this tough looking fish by artist Peter de Seve.
