It's actually been a good chunk of time since I worked with my acrylics. To save more important projects from being butchered by a rusty hand, I made a little painting of a bumblebee... With diabetes? Perhaps I'm not so good with puns.

On the other hand, it turned out alright. Golden OPEN acrylics are fairly forgiving, though they do get quite sticky if you take a bit of a break. Also, I feel that I need to push the boundary between stylization and semi-realism in my work. That's what experimentation is for, I suppose.

Personal Novel Project: Some Snippets

It's been entirely too long since my last post. I hope to rectify that by posting more on works in progress during the next few months, provided I have anything new/of interest to show.  For now, I'll make do by showing a few of the sketches and concepts I've been doing for my (likely) lifelong personal project, an illustrated short novel. I wish I had more time to write these days, but alas! No go.

The last image is one of the few digital experiments I've done. I just don't find the medium as satisfying as traditional, but we'll see if that doesn't change in the future.
