Resolute and Ruin

First drawing of 2010 done entirely in Photoshop CS2 with an Intuos3 in 2 hours. I did this on 01-01-10 while everyone else was nursing a hangover. I've mentioned it before, but it's a good time to remind myself to use more black, I've become too precious about lines.

It's high time I finally finish or scrap my WIPs. So here we go.

I planned for this to be a t-shirt design but had major problems drawing the arms and hands. I threw tattoos all over the arms to hide the janky-ness. It may yet be a shirt.

I LOVE dirndls. I prefer the traditional dirndls to the slutty modern dirndls we see every year at Oktoberfest. The dirndl above is more of a fantasy-influenced corset than a dirndl. DIRNDL!

I finally received my package of Prismacolor Col-Erase pencils and Niji Waterbrush from Dick Blick. I'd been looking for Prisma pencils for ages, they're unavailable in Australia and Amazon won't send them out of America. It took 8 working days, not including public holidays from Illinois to Sydney. I got 1 dud pencil out of the 100, not too shabby.

I got the Niji Waterbrush after reading about them years ago on Ronnie Del Carmen's blog. Now I have no excuse for not learning watercolors.
