IF Tree

This Week’s Illustration Friday was “tree,” and since I’m in the middle of a tree (sort of) drawing, I thought I might as well post my in-progress drawing.
20121109-134717.jpg
This is a still life drawing of one of the tree lights we made for our wedding. I’m happy with the result so far, but since I’m only working on it 0-15 minutes a day, progress is not exactly light-speed. I might finish it by 2013. Might.

I’m doing this drawing (and really all drawing currently) on my iPad 2. This means I’m stuck with relatively low resolution images, but it’s helping me became familiar with drawing using a screen, and with luck it will keep my skills sharp until I can work with higher resolution or, you know, paper.

    Bonus Gift

    Matt’s had his color Nook for a while, and he likes it (It’s really just an Android Tablet) but it DOES give him eye strain. So he asked for a Kindle Touch for Christmas, and my parents gave him one.

    We tried to keep it a secret, but the shape of the box is pretty obvious. At any rate, when I found out they were giving him a Kindle, I thought it would be cool to draw him a back for that as well as the nook. I was on a bit of a time crunch so I kept it pretty simple.

    Since I wasn’t sure I’d finish one image, much less two, I also ordered him this ridiculous Guild poster from Think Geek. We’re trying to figure out where to hang it in the studio/office.

    Clockwork Cthulhu

    Matt asked me to do a drawing for the back of his color Nook, so I thought that would make a good Christmas gift. I didn’t tell him what I was drawing, mainly because I wasn’t entirely sure I’d have time to finish it in time for Christmas.

    I’ve still got a bit of cleaning and playing to do before I’m calling it finished, but I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. Of course the final will probably look more like this:
