Loft Playroom Mural

Filed under: MURALS — Colby @ 3:10 pm

The GrandKids were wanting a new mural for their recently remodeled playroom. When they were little I could paint whatever I wanted and they’d be happy. Now they’re old enough to make specific requests. And I mean SPECIFIC.

GrandDaughter wanted a volleyball player silhouette with the background melding from the blue of the walls to the green.

GrandSon wanted game system logos with a digital looking transition.

Then they decided they wanted additional smaller images around the room. GrandDaughter came up with a scenario. Hefty Smurf and Smurfette holding up a volleyball, phone rings, he answers, she can’t hold up the volleyball by herself. Meanwhile, Papa Smurf looks on.

GrandSon wanted vintage video games scattered around: Pac-Man, Donkey Kong and Q*Bert.

I did this sketch a few years ago for a friend of mine. It’s her grandson when he was about three. I did a second drawing of him later. It’s posted at: http://sircolby.com/drawings/second-base-runner/

Lili Damita

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Portraits — Colby @ 12:52 pm

Surfin’ the tube and came across an old movie, Captain Blood, starring Errol Flynn. He was one of my favorite actors so I looked him up on the internet. In that search I discovered Lili Damita, one of his three wives. Watched the movie with my iPad in my lap and started this sketch. I didn’t get through and after a slew of interruptions I finally finished it after several days.

Girl in Orange Line with Colors

Filed under: DRAWINGS — Colby @ 8:53 am

Experimenting on my iPad Pro. This started with a simple line drawing in orange. Next I widened the lines in different colors on back layers. Then I played with the brush tools. Then I got bored and stopped. This is where I stopped.

Careless Claudia

Filed under: DRAWINGS — Colby @ 11:57 am

When I watch TV or a movie I often get curious about the actors. Sometimes actors from days past, sometimes up and coming ones. So I look them up on the internet. I came across an interesting photo of Claudia Cardinale and had the urge to do a “pencil” drawing of her on my iPad Pro.
