Some Daniel

Tuesday, May 28th, 2013

Family members are my favorite subjects, I’m considering branching out to extended family soon (and don’t say I didn’t warn you since I expect you all to be following this blog much more religiously than I update it 😛 )  Here are 5 Daniels I’ve done recently.

First: Daniel and the Styracosaurus it started out as a study of James Gurney’s picture on page 68 of Dinotopia: The World Beneath, but I took it a little farther than I intended.  The likeness is vague at best and looks different from every angle, but I learned my lesson and won’t be attempting a half inch tall face on a ridiculously bumpy re-used canvas again.  Oh well, he loves it and that’s what matters 🙂


And some sketches, steampunk, stylized, “paleontologist,” and Robin Hood.

You will be pleased to know it’s official!  We have formalized Rebecca’s membership in our family with a 5-month portrait which will take it’s place on our wall as soon as the oils are dry.  There’s no getting rid of her now!
