Chill.

31 Dec

Chill.

Of course, for the first month I thought I’d leave it to the very last second. Why not? I took my snowman’s advice, after all. Ahhh…I’m gonna have some hot chocolate.

(This is just pen and pencil on paper, by the double-you).

Chill

My original plan was work with a figure and so I’m kinda surprised at how this turned out. When I think of ‘chill’, I think of relaxing, daydreaming, doodling, and being in a state of peace which led me to this… Drawn and inked by hand with found images. Color and levels edited in Photoshop.

I originally was going to go the collage route for this month because I’ve kind of burned out on drawing from school, but I’d feel bad if I only spent 10 minutes on my piece (plus an hour or so trying to figure out the original composition I had when I went to glue everything down), so I did this as a back-up. I ended up being pretty happy with it, plus drawing really simple repetitive patterns is a good way for me to get back into drawing for fun. Drawn in pen, then digitized and colored in Photoshop.

Chill – Dec 2012

somehow the first thing I though of was old refrigerator adds from the 1950’s. Something about how the advent of reliable refrigeration enables people to ba more relaxed about life or something.  This is almost all digital, I did draw the girl by hand then ink it all in photoshop.

December 2012 – Chill

Time to break the ice! (no pun-thing intended)

I was planning on going a less edgy route than I ended up on, like Santa relaxing in a rocking chair or something. However, I found out that I’m most inspired lately by caricaturing scotch highlanders, so I drew this instead. Started out with a pencil drawing and rendered it in photoshop.

A little chilly, yeah?

December: “Chill”

17 Dec

Well hello, everyone!

I said previously that I wanted to see if we could get this started in December–so what I wanted to do was give a prompt to start us off, with slightly lower expectations (since the prompt is late). So for this month, just like any other, let your mind explore and do what you can in whatever medium you choose!

The prompt word for December is: Chill

Enjoy this special month everyone, and have at it!

All aboard!
