Daughter of the Forest studies

I'm working on a new traditional painting, and here are the studies I did. First one in pencil, and another one is a color study I did in Photoshop.

Collection of surreal pencil sketches

I've been working on so many things lately I didn't have the time to update this sketchblog. I refuse to give it up, though!
My recent sketchbook entries follow a surreal theme, and I've been drawing a hell of a lot trees recently.

Surreal pencil sketch - tangled hair

Surreal pencil sketch - boy with a bird hood

Surreal pencil sketch - Winter

Surreal pencil sketch - random creepy tree creature

All of these are drawn with pencil in a Canson sketchbook.

Art journal left brain vs. right brain

I'm doing visual journaling exercises from the book The Creative Entrepreneur, and here's one that looks decent enough to share.

Left brain right brain visual journal

I'm trying to get more free with this experimental journal thing, but I'm still too much of a perfectionist to be really successful at it. I'm looking forward to seeing how that might evolve in the future.

Demon and a sci-fi skull

As promised, here are some fantasy sketches I did last weekend.
I got a new hard drive and only have GIMP installed right now so the quality and compression on these last few posted images is worse than I'm used to. Sorry about that.

I haven't used pen and ink in a loooong time. Time to practice it some more.
