Ponies, cycles, baseball.

Much progress since last post. Sadly, gastroenteritis kicked my butt a week ago, so progress hasn't been as swift as I'd like. BUT! Here are more WIPs.... um.... in progress. (I've been posting more snaps of these along the way to my FB page as well.)

My homegirl Twilight Sparkle, though I preferred her in non-princess, all-geek mode.

TRON lightcycle is coming along nicely. In this case more water = more metallic and fluid, probably owing to the fact that water is a liquid... moving on.....

Matt Kemp of the Dodgers, who I only know about because of my nephew's request. He will either be the hardest, or the easiest to paint. We shall see.

Being sketched and painted next: Spongebob characters, Steve from Minecraft, and bacteria. Because this is Christmas and all the kids get to choose what they want a painting of. Who am I to judge?

The holiday paintings have begun! I am trying the crazy/ambitious idea of painting four at the same time; then I can move on to the next batch. First up for today: light cycle and rider from Tron Legacy, and Princess Twilight Sparkle. I don't care if she has wings and is a princess and all that. She'll always be my favorite Pony. 

(Note for next year: how about everyone gets ponies, huh? Isn't that a great idea? Right? Anyone?)

Reflections aplenty, limited palette. I still think there's one coming up that's going to be more challenging......

Close to being done. I kind of want to go all over the tree one with fine white outline detail. Or should I leave it alone? As always, click to embiggen.

Trees and rocks. And purple cats.

More works in progress. I actually really like working on two paintings at once, it gives each a chance to dry and set a bit, and lets me come up with more ideas.


As always, click to enlarge, bc blogger is a resizing fool and I hate it. But not enough to resize and upload everything by hand.

Small trees....

...and a work-in-progress.

One stitch at a time.

I made this stuff. And gave it all away. :)
