Blue Steele



Even though I've posted several things over the last couple of days, I'm beginning to feel like I'm in a rut. My sketches don't seem to be working out the way I would like them to, and my main source material (my monster movie books), have just about exhausted themselves. So what's the perfect thing to tackle when you're having trouble making things work? Draw one of the people whose likeness gives you the most trouble. That's what I did. I drew a Barbara Steele a few months back, and while graphically it was pretty nice, the likeness wasn't all that great. I like this one much better. It actually kind of looks like her now.
I'm still working on some commission pieces and trying to work on some other personal pieces. I'm also trying to join Art Jumble, as I am already thinking about my 2010 New Year's Resolution, and how I would like to take on that challenge. I am still waiting to hear back from the administrators there. (fingers crossed ladies & gents).

    PS: Frog Queen, I did get into Art Jumble! I may not begin posting there until after the new year, it just depends on the topics. I'm going to try & post something every week for a year, starting in January.
