I put alot of my favs up too. :) Pass the link around!
As i said yesterday, i really did enjoy drawing myself and Ian. I hadn’t in a while. So last night I had the urge to draw our outfits yesterday. :) I think they came out alright.. I gotta work on my Guys eyes. Its hard not to make them look girly. Haha. :)
I used to HATE drawing people. I would tell others that I was terrible at drawing the human form. I am still not amazing. I couldn’t get all the details down. I couldn’t figure out how to draw the curves, the veins, the muscles, bumps, and angles right. Then, i realized that i don’t care. I draw what i want to draw, and no more. :) These are my humans. I admire someone who can draw photo-realistic. Ian is extremely good at that. Maybe I could if i spent days on it, but for cute little drawings, this will suffice. :)
I plan to either color them in marker or colored pencil tonight, or digitally in photoshop. i haven’t done THAT in years aside from backgrounds. :)
So, Ian is still in the process of purchasing a house. The deal has been dragging since Jan, but there’s light at the end of the tunnel, with a closing as early as Sept 9th! (VERY wishful thinking though)
So armed with happy thoughts, we decided to go out-and-about looking for ideas on furniture. Window shopping, sort of. :) We stopped at Home Goods, Home Depot, Wal-mart, K-mart, and SLEEPY’S. While at sleepy’s they put us on a machine bed type thing that measures your body weight and how you sleep and where your joints hit and where you need the support. It was awesome. After watching a mini-movie, and having a mini massage by this giant bed, we got our results.
It turns out my current bed is too firm for me, and his current bed is too soft for him. Thus the aches and pains. Long story short, we tried out a ton of beds! Huge beds, tall beds. I have a twin bed, so everything was huge! (enter Sleep-to-Live bed) It was big, and soft and nice and perfect and you can customize it! They had a huge sale that was worth hanging on to that idea. I want it! Everyone NEEDS this bed. :) Haha, I sound like an infomercial, don’t I? Sorry.
This is Ian and I sitting on a huge mattress and box spring in the middle of nowhere. I liked the simplicity. :) I haven’t drawn a picture of us in almost a year. It was fun. :)
This weeks Illustration Friday.
If that plane makes it to the atmosphere, I’d be impressed! :)
I’m still learning my markers.. practicing as much as possible. Still a very new medium for me. ;)

[Done with Pencils, colored with markers and background done in colored pencils.]
I recommend not announcing to the world that you are on vacation (unless you specify that you are bringing your computer maybe).. my gMail account got hacked. If you received any spam emails from me, I am terribly sorry… All is being worked out.
Also, as you noticed, I’m back from vacation.. found a few nice old things.. Pictures to come.
Leave me alone hackers!
