Last pre-holiday post

Calender just got the calender back from Kinkos, whatever fixes I make now will be too late for the presents anyway. The watercolor is a charicature of my young Grandma and Grampa for christmas as well. At the bottom are my best attempts and oil painting so far (bleagh!) Hopefully I'll get it by the end of the classes. Still, Nickelodeon got back to me, so I might be able to stay afterall.

May to August

More cheerleaders pages. Decided to add a bit more texture, upon advice. And yes, I'll be revising the other ones based on suggestions, but I want the rest out of the way first... More advice would be helpful....

Started off this week with a lovely bout of food poisoning. Still, when you overhear things while lying in a chilly hospital wing for threes hours, it tends to put things in perspective very quickly...

There was a very nice Finish girl in one of my painting classes who had to go back to Finland this week (to finish her Finish school, hyuk).
Visually she would make the perfect Luna Lovegood: dirty-blond hair, eccentric fashion sense, and an extremely peculiar (but oddly pretty) figure and facial features.

A couple watercolor figure paintings I kind of liked. Still nothing from oil painting I have the courage to show yet. Hopefully soon...

Here's some pages for a cheerleader pinup calender I'm making for my basketball-playing brothers for Christmas. I went with my typical flat-graphic no outlines designs with the texture on the background due to time constraints: I hope to try something more original for future big projects, honest. Any feedback would be very helpful.
