It’s comforting to know, though formed from chaos, there is consistency throughout the universe.

Water Soluble Pencils

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Portraits — Colby @ 10:47 am

Some people aren’t sure what I’m talking about when I mention water soluble pencils. They look and work like regular ol’ color pencils except if you dip a paintbrush in water and go over them they dissolve. Regular ol’ pencils will just get wet. In case you were wondering what the pencil drawing (October 21, 2009, “Seated Woman in Color“) looked like before I added the wash, well, here it is. If I were going to leave it as a pencil-only drawing I would have 1) used different paper; this is very coarse watercolor paper, and 2) I would have added a lot more detail. You can see a regular ol’ color pencil example, September 27, 2009, “South Padre“.

Seated Woman in Color

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Portraits — Colby @ 11:14 am

This is a hybrid drawing/painting. It was done with water soluble pencils finished with a delicate wash. Even though it utilizes a brush and painting styles it is more of a drawing than a painting.

Pirate Choir

Filed under: CARTOONS — Tags: , , , , , , — Colby @ 11:10 am

Choir directors are constantly advising how to purposefully mispronounce words so they sound better when sung. This is especially important to us folks from Texas since our words often take on lives of their own. One such direction concerns words ending in an ‘R’. They’d much rather hear an “uh” sound than an “er.” I suppose that’s why we don’t come across many pirate choirs.
