WIPping it into Shape

Hooray! i finally got some of my works in progress up. Heavy influence from mayan mythology in both of these. the monkey has so many problems with it, but I do love it so much, so I will finish it. The drawing of Tlaloc i really want to take my time with and get it right.

and one more! not my longest standing WIP, but its getting there.
I started this almost exactly 2 years ago, and the last time i did any work on it was October of '09. I hope to finish it soon! but I'm still deciding on some of the colours/ still saving up money for the colours I need. Also, this is a diptych. I'm only posting half of it now. look forward to seeing the completed piece in the future!

as always, these images are copyright to Christy Domino. I don't know why you'd want to use them, but if you do just ASK!!!

addicted to art fumes

i just realized that my favourite mediums to use, Markers and Oil paint, are some of the most noxious known to art. I think only printmaking has more volatile substances at its disposal.

anyway it just occurred to me that perhaps the only reason I'm drawing every spare minute I get is because I'm jonesing for marker fumes.

I promise I'll post some WIPs soon

with every step I take, the destination takes another

any diversion is a sweet one, especially when there's 2 self portraits due tomorrow!

and a blog is quite a diversion indeed. I decided to come here to follow my favourite artists, and hopefully glean some tips for my own work.
