More Hotness

I did these in the same day that I did the Heart Queen sketch.
The top 2 images were done in photoshop 7 when I created my digital sketching brush.
The 2nd version does not have the undersketch in the image. The 3rd picture is one of my mastercopies from Pino. On the last image (Pino mastercopy) I forgot how I did my master copy works. I have more pino suff on my blog and also in my cgtalk sketchbook thread.

Heart Queen

Click on the images to enlarge.
I was making some brushes in photoshop7 and I was trying to make a brush that could rival sketching in sketchbook pro, painter, and opencanvas for photoshop. All of a sudden I re-worked the basic round brush and my wacom tablet settings and boom a nice digital sketching brush. The fur around her neck was done by a custom brush I was messing with in photoshop also. I did not feel like opening up painter also alongside with photoshop. I am happy. Now I should be able to digital sketch with the best of them now hopefully when I feel like digital sketching. Pencils and paper are still better lol.
BTW Alina I was eating mint ice cream while I did this. I had to let you know :)

What the @#$% is this.?.?

I have no clue what this is lol. I was browsing the net and I decided to draw lol. By the way we had a break in the heatwave so no 100 plus degree weather today. Done on printer paper with a 0.5mm bic pencil (yeah i found some 0.5 bics they were hard to find.) The grascale job and color was done by a mouse. I was to lazy to plug in my wacom.

Good job everyone! Keep up the good work. Keep the art flowing.

I like this topic of tears, not because i am negative,
Tears for me as like as phase of mood. or emotion, whatever.
everyone almost had such experience to cried until hard to breath,
you just can use mouth to breath.
painful but feel good inside to released.
that was a emotion changed.
because we almost laugh and smile to remember that stupid and silly cried memory.
