I was at the Pomona Chalk Art Festival yesterday.
This was my very first chalk art competition that I have ever participated.... Actually, it was my very first Chalk art. PERIOD. I've never done any chalk art before, unless you count the tic tac toe boxes from kindergarten.
I made a Doctor Who Tribute piece. I only had 5 hours to work on it. I really did wish I had an extra hour.... and more blue chalk. haha
I got 2nd place (Honarable Mentions) in the professional division. I'm pretty proud of that. First time challenge and I get second place. Woo hoo!
Next year, I'm gonna amp it up and aim for the grand prize! Woooo!
Here is a doodle I did last night.
The idea was: What if Dracula wanted to be a Vogue model? And he wanted to take a picture of himself as if he was on the front cover of a magazine.
Everything is done in ball point pen.
This is a simple drawing I made in remembrance of my ferret (he passed away this morning). This is based on a true event. I caught him trying to steal the Guitar Hero guitar controls... He was determined to drag that thing back to his secret hide out (under the dishwasher). Good times
I'm sorry for being M.I.A.
I have been attending Gnomon to brush up on some traditional skills, and learn some new skills.
I've been super stoked that my figure drawing skills got way better in just a few weeks.
Here is sample of what I worked on last night.
The head sketches are done in 5 mins.
Then full body has been done in 10 mins.
