Random Sketches for 2/27/11

It's been a while since I've done a proper 'Random Sketches' update.  I haven't been doing much because, believe or not, I'm close to being finished my current sketchbook.  I'll be sure to post up a massive sketchdump when the time of that book's end comes.

For now, I have a bunch of pen and ink drawings, some watercolor, a couple from the actual book itself.
Got some Miss West, One Piece, and Homestuck (link).  I hope you enjoy!

Quick West Watercolor Test

Not much for today.  Did a quick test in watercolor class today.  Wanted to see how a watercolor inked drawing would hold up with added color.  Not too pleased with it.
I suppose if I need to add color to a line drawing done in watercolor, I"ll either make a copy of the lineart or just color in photoshop.

I'll have more watercolor sketches in the future.  I also want to do some water color lineart tests, just to see if it's something I would like to do with my black and white work in the future.

Oh, by the way... if you haven't noticed it by now, I made some updates to the blog.  I got a spiffy (and sketchy) new banner and made a couple of adjustments to things here and there.  So, I hope you enjoy the new look.  And if you don't, then you're probably one of the people who aren't the five people who may or may not watch me. :P

Gallery Opening on February 4th

Hey, everyone!

Just wanted to advertise a gallery show that will be showcasing one of my paintings.  The Gallery in Brea (CA) is going to be having their opening reception on Friday February 4th from 6pm to 9pm.  There will be a diverse group of amazing artists showing their work, so it should be a lot of fun if you decide to come.  Even if you don't make opening reception, the show will be up for about six weeks.  Hope you can make it! :)

Doing some reorginizing...

Hey yo's!

The blog is currently going through a rebuild.  As you can already see (if you're reading this on blogspot), there are already a couple changes.  Changed some frame sizes, added some new links, altered some fonts, edited some descriptions... fun stuff.  The design is a little plain at the moment, but I'll do some sprucing up to make things look nice.  This will include a new image I'll draw for the banner.

I've also decided to get rid of the name "DKIRBYJ's Randitorium of Idiocy."  As fun and childish of a title as that may be, I wanna keep things a little more professional in here.  Maybe I'll change it to something different, eh?  Possibly "DKIRBYJ's Electric Lizard Wedding" perhaps?  We'll see.  For the time being, I'll just call it "DKIRBYJ."

Expect new changes both on the blog and also twitter (which you can catch the link on the side, here).  Maybe I'll even do somethin' with that thur tumblr.  Only time will tell...

For now, enjoy these drawings of some gorilla-lookin' dudes.  Lates!
