Washington/Oregon Vacation

Manzanita beach, Oregon
Lyss's way of saying "Don't try sticking me back in that car seat!"
Quinault Lake, Washington

I had to take four photos to fit the whole tree in and merged them in Photoshop. Then I had to use another picture to put me and my daughter in the shot so you can get a better idea of just how huge this tree is.

Beautiful view of Packwood near Mt. Rainier in Washington.

Sketchbook Stuff

working on it some more.
I got the trial version of AutoDesk SketchbookExpress when I recently bought my new Intous 4, yay! A new tablet finally. My Intous 2 had a long and happy life of about 5 years. It still works, but has kind of been on the fritz. I bought an Intous 3 a while back and had issues with it when drawing in Flash, so I returned it and decided to put up with my old tablet. I'm happy to say, the Intous 4 is totally awesome; at least so far. It came with this trial software; pretty much a bunch of junk except for Sketchbook. I think it's a better application for sketching than Photoshop. I can't really put my finger on why, but it just seems to be more suited for sketch work.
I'm not very good at digital painting as you can see, but it's still fun.

Some rough and finished designs

I think the best thing an artist can do is to learn from as many other artists, people, and life experiences as possible while still retaining who they are. It's not about learning to draw like someone else. I've tried that for years now and it just doesn't work. It's about learning to be the best you that you can be by learning the basic principles that make artists great: imagination, patience, virtue, charity, faith, knowledge, and most of all discipline.
