Well, Tomorrow I've got a ton on my plate. I won't be getting back until pretty late and I'll be extremely tired, so I wanted to make sure and put something up. The first I did with the batch from Sunday, but I colored it this afternoon. Look for the Umetsu reference, it's pretty obvious for those "in the know."
The second I did a while ago and realized that I hadn't put it up. The actual drawing is actually about 2 inches tall. I'm trying to move my drawings up in size again. But it was really fun to try and put as much as I could into this smaller picture. I was happy with the finished results. I even played around with the border a bit to add a touch of gradation to the colors to change the presentation.
I can't exactly remember when I started doing that kind of border, but I feel it adds something special to quickly identify one of my pieces of art. The images stand alone, but It is like fine-art mounting a photograph to a black piece of matteboard, it is classy and focuses the image. If that makes any sense. But I like it, so I'm sticking with it.
I don't know why, but it's really fun to draw Spidey. I've been doing it since I was a kid, and he's a character I don't get tired of drawing. Maybe it's because he's able to pull off so many poses since he's so flexible. Maybe it's because you can get away with a lot of foreshortening. Possibly it is because you can always get better at drawing him. Either way, fun stuff!

I'm sorry for how long it's taken to get some new art up. I've been busy with family stuff, and adjusting to some other things that have my daily schedule completely out of whack. But I'm starting to get things back in order. There's really no story behind this, but more to come tomorrow!

Sorry about not having a real art post, but today I did get some art done. I still need to color it, but I'll post some tomorrow! The reason I'm not posting it is that I spent the day worrying about the Colts vs. the Pats. FINALLY the team I've loved since I was a child in Indianapolis is making it to the Super Bowl...
I'm hoping they can close it out and win Peyton a Super Bowl and secure his spot in the Hall of Fame!!!
