Kitsune Layout by DancingCavy
Kitsune Layout
It's been ages since I painted and I figure it's about time I give it a try again. I could have picked an easier thing to start with but I need a challenge. Probably more challenge than I really want. I am a pretty sucky painter especially when it comes to anything but landscapes. At least the background should look good, I guess.  Painting is like the opposite of every other artform I generally do.  Backgrounds are nice but the subjects. . .ehhh. . .they're lacking.

I was sort of hoping to have a more dynamic pose but that didn't quite pan out. Maybe some really nice lighting will help that shortcoming. . . Assuming I can pull it off.

Some thumbnails for an upcoming project.  Just trying to flesh out poses and composition.  And having way too much fun drawing paws and "hand-paws."

Karl's Gardening and Farming Project Logo by DancingCavy
Karl's Gardening and Farming Project Logo
It's been ages since I've drawn Karl.  Most unfortunate that the true canine muse and mascot for the program passed away earlier this year.  It was fun to revisit him again, however.  This is a logo (or pictorial representation) of one of Karl's Kids Program's newest venues.  As a new fan of gardening, I can relate to Karl's joy.

Adobe Flash 5.5.

I am open for commissions if anyone cares.  :)

Lex and Lucas by DancingCavy
Lex and Lucas
One of my coworker's dogs.  They're both Italian greyhounds (Iggies!)  A small gift art for her as she recovers.  It was actually a lot of fun to do this one.  My artistic muse showed up and I just went with it.  Stayed up way past my bedtime but I think it was worth it.  When you get in the mood, you just go with it.

Media:  The usual.  Micron pen, Prismacolor pencils on Artagain paper.

Just over two weeks ago, I ended up in the hospital for an emergency appendectomy.  Honestly didn't see that coming!  Fortunately everything went well.  The surgery was quick and easy and my recovery has been good.  I had to take it a bit slower which I'm terrible at doing.  But I'm healing nicely and almost back to 100%.  At least I no longer have to consider whether or not I should do something or wait and do it later.  :)

On the art front, I'm offering 25% off any cartoon-style portrait through August.  I'm also open for logos and custom work (t-shirt designs, etc.) though no discount there.  I'm closed for any realistic portraits.  Check out my website for more details: portrait.dancingcavy.com

Yes. I am terrified!! ;)

Sorry I hadn't gotten back to you on the note you sent me. Just been a bit busy lately and, whenever I do get some free time to waste online, I tend to forget you sent me a note. I'm such a bad person.
