Posting this because I just found it while organizing folders on my desktop.
Not sure when I finished this but I remember just trying to paint something non-challenging while doing it. Hadn’t had too much time to paint anything for a long while. I’m trying to fix that but really busy with school and getting super powerful colds. *cough* *sneeze*
Artwork I finished/tired of looking at a while ago. Some elephant creature I guess. Couple of weeks ago I was doodling and something with a trunk and tusks appeared and I liked it enough to see the idea through.
Working on something else but posting this so I’ll stop messing with it. This was supposed to be just a quick paint exercise to test out my injured hand but I kept on coming back to it this week. Distracting. My finger is doing a lot better but the nerves still do strange things sometimes.
Sketched this dragon weeks ago. During the paint job I changed everything but the head. Probably should have stayed with my first instincts. So much I would change. Live, learn, and move on. Very busy. My family is coming to visit soon!
The goal was to churn out a painting or something every week but that hadn’t a prayer of happening with all the event work last week(thanks Joe!). This actually worked out because I ended up scrapping the original almost completely and reworked the entire composition. Can’t say I love where this ended up going but it’s way better than it was. It was decent carnegie hall at least.
Something from this week for a creature contest. Will post more frequently. Like once a week hopefully.
also throwing up a bunch of stuff at this site http://ericmercadoart.tumblr.com/
