Sometimes you get lucky with a really nice shot.  Didn't even look through the viewfinder.  I shot this one blind.
Another portrait completed rather quickly while listening to "Wicked" as an audiobook.  :)

Colored pencil.
Amazing how quickly things progress when you listen to podcasts or an audio book as you work.

I typically hate backgrounds (perspective-my enemy!) but they do add a lot more to the portrait so I'll probably keep including them.
Colored pencil pet portrait.  Only took me 6 months to finish. . .  Why must take so long!?

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:

DancingCavy Featured By Owner May 22, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
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.
