...by rihanna featuring will.i.am. so i figured i'll start a trend for myself this year where all my post titles will be the title of whatever song i happen to be listening to at the moment.
i'd really hate to bore u about how busy i've been at the dog kennel i work at and how i didn't have any time to even think about drawing let alone the actual act of. my two best friends had their babies and i have yet to meet them! its gotta stop somewhere. but i got a pretty good raise at work so i'm feeling better about life now. cash rules everything around me, i guess. =P
during the busy holiday months at work, i did manage to do a couple of commissioned artwork. one of which took pretty much the little spare time i did have in december. it's a big original piece that i did with my hubby Jerry "theFranchize". since the client wanted a one-of-a-kind piece done in traditional medium, we did this piece all in watercolor and inks. it was definitely a challenge since we haven't done anything in watercolor since we were in school and that's been a while. i was in charge of drawing the females (the one at the bottom is sue storm), jerry drew dr. doom and the background. we started with drawing it all in pencil, then painted over that, then inked to make the black really pop. the pictures are the (obvious) progression. the end result turned out to be really nifty. but most importantly, the client loved it so what else can i say. ^__^ what's really cool is that it went to someone in the philippines. i haven't had any fans from "the mothaland" yet so it just has a special place in my heart. enjoy!
