My dog sleeping on his bed, pictured from behind/above. Sleeping ten-year-old dogs don't move around too much, so I used him to start playing around with pure digital paint. Though if you can't tell where the head is, I'm sorry.

Here's an unedited scan of a recent (non-digital) painting. Since I've been working on the edited version, this one looks rather sad and grey. But I'm sure I'll overwork the edited one in the end, so I should appreciate this simplicity a bit more....

Do I remember how to do this? ...No, not really, no.
A very melancholy man from a story. I decided to use this as my own re-introduction to digital things, and went crazy. [aka, made a mess.] It... well... it's going to take me awhile to get used to.

A scanner is a wonderful thing. As is a wacom tablet. I now have both, and they seem to have excitedly shaken awake the lazy illustrator-on-hiatus that I've been for the past two years. What can capture this feeling? Uh, I think it has to be Toy Story 3's enthusiastic, "NEW TOYS!"
Oh, and I made a light box. I haven't used it, mostly because it is sitting in pieces in my garage. But hey, it's better than the improvised lightbox that consisted of a piece of glass from a table top balanced precariously on different-sized small boxes with a naked lamp underneath. Progress, progress....
