oddbill Not super happy with this. I feel very off my game. Keep going, or scrap it and try again?

  •   wendeezer You decide 4w
  •   artofwjd @oddbill - there's a lot of nice textures and shapes going on it though. I would keep it and do something with it if you decide you don't like the finished piece. 4w
  •   ambernicolehay Super! 4w

oddbill Another shot from that rainy December trip up to Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve.
Still getting the feel for landscape photos. This is so far out of my comfort zone!

oddbill Nature and landscape photography has not been my focus, so this is pretty close to a first attempt.

Back in December of 2014 I visited a friend up in Sonoma County and we ended up taking a short hike on a pretty rainy day up into the Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve.

One of the trails we were following was flooded and the moss covered rails of the path fence went down into the water and came back up out of it a little distance further.

It looked amazing, so we set up the tripod with a jacket help over the camera and pulled a couple of long exposures in the dim light.

Then I prettied it up. This is a fairly heavily color adjusted and tweaked photo, but it looks now pretty much like what our eyes saw then.

  •   gekko_hopman Awesome really. 2mon
  •   oddbill Thanks @gekko_hopman 2mon
  •   wendeezer Fuuuuuuuuck! Gorgeous shot!!! Majestic! 1mon
  •   oddbill Thanks @wendeezer! It's cropped square here, but a full version of this shot is on my Flickr here: https://flic.kr/p/r9WNKy 1mon
  •   wendeezer Sweet, I'll check it out 1mon
  •   oddbill @gold_cartridge @wendeezer @ksteeeez Just realized this is my 666th instagram. It might be the least satanic picture I've ever posted here. Let's all pretend there is a long black haired empty eyed little girl ghost under that flood pool who will drag you under by the ankles if you try to walk through there so I can feel like I haven't botched this once in a lifetime event. 😐 1mon
  •   gold_cartridge Haha I'm creeping up on my #666th post too!!! Hey nature is scary, it might kill you and then use your body for sustenance, that's pretty fuckin scary 1mon
  •   ksteeeez I fucked up my 666th post a long time ago 1mon

oddbill To take a break from all the artwork, here is a shot from a set of Zelda I did a while back. Sorting through old shoots and finding all sorts of things I should get around to editing and publishing.

oddbill Tonight's session, an attempt at a 2 hour portrait. I'm just good enough at this to see how short I'm falling. Need to make more to get better. #artstudio #art #painting #figurestudy #oil #cardboard #practice #allaprima #artmodel #portrait #artstagram 2mon

oddbill Here's another page from an older sketchbook.
I'm working on the heart still from the previous picture, hopefully I'll have something to show you from that soon.

oddbill Half Empty Heart.
A new drawing! I needed to just shade. I have been wrecked with stress and depression lately, and this image has been in there. It needed to come out.
I may try making a thing on zazzle with this for valentine's day.
Would you buy something with this on it?

oddbill While I'm waiting to have enough time away from work to draw again, here's another page from the very old Kung Fu Midsummer Night's Dream costume design sketchbook.
This character was named dewdrop, and I thought it would be great to have him look like a marauder from the Road Warrior but with that dainty name.
We painted tattoos all over his head and chest, and glued glass half-beads on his back in a geometric pattern, so it looked like a scarification design, but in the right light also like water droplets.
This was one of the best looking final costumes.

oddbill The Erl King.
A very, very early concept design that convinced a friend to let me create costumes for her Kung Fu Midsummer Night's Dream short film.
It hurts a little to look at how rough this drawing is, but then I still dig the concept.
The purpose of this wasn't a beautiful drawing, it was to convey a costume idea, and it accomplished that.
So I should go easy on it.
It's prismacolor pencils, but not incredibly well manipulated.
I've been binge watching that makeup competition show Face Off lately though, and this looks as good as anything those kids draw before they start sculpting and fabricating.
And I was all of twenty something when I drew this.

Anyway, I'll probably have time to do a new thing on Wednesday, but until then, more snaps from the archives!

  •   oddbill Interesting note: the chest plate was supposed to be this split fallen palm tree fragment I found. It had a lovely, elegant curve and the middle was a ragged, shreading split. I could imagine strapped across a translucent chest, with he heart beating visibly within. 2mon
  •   richardhuantedesign So nice! 2mon

oddbill I used to do ink life drawings like this. Splash some watercolor with a nearly dry brush to rough in shadow areas, then go in after with drip pens and black and red ink.
These were maybe 15 minute poses, so there was never enough time. You had to pick your detail and commit before you could think. I learned a lot from this kind of work.
This particular flapper is one of my favorites from that time.

oddbill Here is a mer person I don't have time to finish tonight so you'll see it again later probably.
Time to draw in and around my regular job is difficult problem.
Having you all responding so positively to these sketches has been a real motivator.
So thanks, I hope you keep looking and I'll keep drawing.
