Site Redesign Styles

Wasn't that long ago I released a new version of my site,, but I'm toying with beginning the transition of it away from a portfolio site. Here are some of the styles I was playing with today.

Class - Pencil Still Life

So, I've started taking some local art classes here in Catonsville at a place called Staub Art Studio. I go every Wednesday from 6:30 to 8:30. I'm really using it for two reasons. One, it forces me to do some artwork once a week. Not only that, it forces me to work on something for the sake of doing it, not for some big goal or project. It's no pressure work. Second, it's time I get back into art at a level I haven't for a while. Techniques on shading, blending colors, representing light, etc. would be really helpful in helping me reach another level in the digital stuff I do.

So, here was my intro piece, pieced together from four scanned sections. I wasn't thrilled with the goblet or the sheet shadows, but, eh, first time doing something like this in years and years.

Trench of Love

I love my fiance. She wanted a fountain in the front yard, which required a trench that ran to the outlet. This is a trench of love.

...and I wonder why I can't get any art work done.
