Figure Drawing Funness 2
Posted By :Date :Laura | 05-08-2015
Draw­ings from my last fig­ure draw­ing ses­sion — Again, a great model with a great figure and sense of expression. As usual, we started out with fast poses for ges­ture draw­ing, and then the last hour and a half we had just one pose. I decided to do a portrait for the last session, but I feel like the final piece is too unfinished, and I didn't take quite enough time in the measuring stages. I wish I'd had another couple of hours with her, she had such beautiful structure…

River Road Expo Spring, 2015
Posted By :Date :Laura | 05-03-2015
I had so much fun at River Road Expo, again! I spent most of the time talking with people, selling prints, and checking out the awesome steampunk and adorable superhero costumes. My most popular print (once again) was my little girl mechanic, followed closely by my new Odile print and my clockwork bird. I also took my first at-show commission for Comics for Collectors and knocked out a drawing of Spider-Gwen, which was only half as stressful as I had imagined!

Figure Drawing Funness
Posted By :Date :Laura | 04-15-2015
Here are some drawings from the last figure drawing session - our model this time was awesome, classically trained dancers almost always make great models, they have such control over their poses and can convey a great deal of emotion just in the way they arrange themselves. We started out with fast poses for gesture drawing, and then the last hour and a half we had just one pose. Some time I will have to get a modelling session for a 4-6 hour pose, those are my favorites!   [gallery…

Digital Sketch Fun
Posted By :Date :Laura | 03-27-2015
I played around with some Photoshop sketching today, and it didn't turn out too bad! I'm still trying to get used to drawing directly into programs, rather than having to start in my sketchbook, (not that I would ever neglect my sketchbook for brainstorming, but I want to see if drawing into the programs directly will save me any time) so I decided I needed to start with drawing something that I'm already pretty used to drawing, so adorable little girl it was! I am also trying to speed up…

Life Drawing Funness
Posted By :Date :Laura | 03-21-2015
I got to attend a figure drawing session at 171 Cedar! I've been dying to get some life drawing into my schedule and this open session-style class will be perfect for brushing up on my life drawing skills. These aren't nearly as bad as I've been expecting since I haven't drawn from a live figure in about 4 years, (whaaat?!) but these were still the only two from the 2 hour session that I felt like posting. I'm definitely not moving as fast as I used to or as accurately,…

Open for Commissions!
Posted By :Date :Laura | 03-10-2015
Have you ever wanted an adorable drawing of one of your personal heroes? Commission a piece from me! I attended a really great smaller Comic-Con, the River Road Expo, last fall and I had such a blast! It was organized by Jared Aiosa (of Heroes your Mom Threw Out) and he and a few (unnamed) friends have been encouraging me to accept commissions for the next show coming up April 19. I have wrestled with this idea for some months now, and though I will not be taking commissions during…

So Remember Those Oil Experiments?
Posted By :Date :Laura | 09-12-2014
I have a great story to tell about that... This is officially the first painting I have sold! That would be exciting enough for me, but it actually gets better... Once upon a time, a woman brought her young granddaughter to visit The Gallery @ The ARTS Council. The woman wanted to acquire something for herself, but also (cue lovely music here) to purchase a first piece to start her granddaughter's own collection. The young girl fell in love with my little oil sketch, and now I have a warm-fuzzy generating story to tell about my…

Experiments in Oil
Posted By :Date :Laura | 09-05-2014
I have been craving oil painting lately, and to that end, I have been experimenting with creating illustrative work in oils, along side my digital painting. Here are my first two illustrative oils, they are really more like small studies, but they were surprisingly fun!

Roses for The ARTS Council
Posted By :Date :Laura | 08-29-2014
I donated this triptych for a silent auction benefitting The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes. It was held during our annual fundraiser, REcycled Runway. Keeping with the theme, I painted this work on reclaimed panel board and framed it with scrap wood scrounged from a kitchen remodel!
