Nothin Like A Peacock

So I have this fairly obsessive Peacock fetish right now...
and it all started when I bought these two pairs of Peacock earrings in California.

This little big guy the first of possibly many many many peacock sketches.

I see this painting and think "OLE!"...
...but I know that's not the right language...

What's the Tagalog equivalent?

True Love's Kiss

My Christmas present for my brother and his wife (and soon-to-be arriving baby!).
A personal favourite. =)

Love, The Starving Artist...

My Christmas gifts to my parents (top) and my sister and her boyfriend (bottom).
When you're broke... you'll find ways.

Can you tell me what emotions are evoked from each comp?
Would definitely love some feedback. =)

Animal Life Drawing with Joe Weatherly!

gestures with the brush pen. warming up (twas cold that day!)
These guys had strange abnormal horns that twisted in weird but cool patterns

This guy kept pacing back and forth... So difficult to draw!

I think he knew a bunch of irritated art students were drawing him because just for kicks, he'd change direction and head all over the place!

The lioness was a little more cooperative. She posed

these lemurs had a very short attention span. like me during math.

Tuck Tucker brought in his dog who's a PRO life drawing model. He'd totally freeze and pose for 2 minutes. wonderful lil guy!

Finally, my favourite drawing of the batch: Tuck Tucker and his loyal friend.

Brooke Fraser's music always inspires me when I draw, so I though I'd draw her for a change! Beautiful person, inside and out! Love love LOVE her music!

Yee Haw!

my process from life drawing, to character exploration

Life drawing in the studio, plus some re-works into character design.
I absolutely LOVED this model.

I'm finally a "regular" at Starbucks.
I'm gonna get fat.
And broke.
