Working on the muscle layer. Lots of lines I’m gonna have to figure out and make sense of, but overall I think things are looking okay. If anyone has any input on the muscles of a sauropod neck, though, please tell me. I have an anatomy book with some giraffe musculature, but unfortunately it’s not with me, so I’ll have to reference it tomorrow and make fixes.
Steve Hampton: Figure Drawing: Design and Invention.
I took one of his classes back when I went to art school and he’s an incredible professor and instructor. I’d advise people to look through his studies and even buy his book. It’s not necessarily how to draw correct anatomy but to know it while making it stylized. His class basically teaches the mechanics of the body while using imagination.
Seriously, I recommend anyone to attending one of his online workshops. It’s kind of pricey but much more affordable than what I paid. Then again I had my own benefits.
When it comes to drawing or painting birds, I totally suck. So when I see paintings like this, it’s just too awesome not to share. I love how soft they look, and the colors!!

Guys. I am so desperate to work on commissions that each day I don’t get to I feel more and more awful/guilty.
It constantly feels like the house is in a state of disaster, that things need to be done, that the laundry NEVER ENDS. I’m not sure if the lackluster year of artwork due to my health has me out of whack. It’s highly probable, though I don’t know how to get my art life back in order.
That alone stresses me out.

Gosh, these paintings just excite the hell out of me. It’s like…artist porn.
Say hello to the ‘Butterfly of the Sea’ also known as a Sea Robin or Gurnard.
An odd looking fish, this species is a bottom dweller, they live on the sea floor and can actually “walk” along underwater by alternatively moving its pelvic fins and short pectoral fin rays. It’s not related to flying fish, nor do they glide in air, the large pectoral fins are normally held against the body but are spread out when threatened to put off predators.
