Making Some Progress

My sketch from Sister Exchange is coming together. It takes a little while to connect to my new main character and feel like I know her. Such with Brianna here. She is a feisty child with a pesty sister. (I see my spell check said Pesty was not a word)but you know what I mean.

Get to know your characters.
Once you are friends with your characters, it gets so much easier to draw or write about them.

Keep Working

So hard to be in the process of moving and keeping all work on schedule.
Right now as I'm living out of suitcase and moving completely in two months, things are so spacey. My hubby, Danny, starts his new job next week, but I need stay awhile to close down the house and get my son, Joey off to college. So when do I get the time to finish my last few projects? You tell me. I'm finishing up a great story by Kevin McNamee, titled Sister Exchange. Here is how one of the sketches started.

Big Change Coming

The moving truck arrives this week. Boxes up to the ceiling. I'm moving to the wonderful city of Asheville, N.C. I've heard it is filled with creative people and artists. Hope so......
As I pack up my art supplies, I hope I will remember which box they are in when I get there.

Getting Back to Basic Information from Harold Underdown

Sometimes you need to review and get back to basic information. Things change and often you just forget how things happen in the world of writing and illustration.
Harold's site is so great for many things and always worth another look.
