late night at the drawing table

Ahh, I feel like I've been really neglecting the blog the past few weeks... or even the past few months! Life is quite full these days with freelance, commissions, and attempting to lead a (somewhat) normal life. I've been curious about this, and maybe some readers can provide some insight - how do others manage to squeeze a full-time hobby into an already packed lifestyle? Any tips, complaints, experiences, grievances, general comments? What do you guys think? Let's discuss!

In the meantime, I realize I sketch constantly - literally, CONSTANTLY - but hardly ever post rough sketches here. Let us rectify this wrongful practice. Here's a couple doodles I've been working on - the first one for a sort of long-term personal project involving this weird indigenous tribe I've been inventing, and the last two for a large tattoo I'm designing for one of my best friends.

I'm also on the verge of finishing a digital painting that has, for reasons even I cannot explain, been taking me weeks and weeks to complete... more on that (hopefully) soon!

we had another figure painting session at Korpus this past weekend with the lovely Michelle as our model. this one I did in about 4 hours. I've been painting with thicker paints lately and I'm really digging the super textured brushstrokes... click the second image for a mega gigantic detail shot!
