DONE, Art Thrown Down #2 "The Infernal Nun"

I am finished. I am done. I am absolutely insane. Three days worth of intermittent work. It's going to be apart of a series of four boards. The first being the Infernal Nun (which corresponds nicely with fire I realized). Second the Crow Witch for air, third the Hag/Babba Yagga for earth, and fourth the Sea Witch/Circe for water. I'm excited about this series which is good. Let us see how fast I can crank them out shall we.

I really like this one.

Get Thee To A Nunnery

Ok, so sometimes I get in this zone and I totally lose track of time. I also might have happened to work until I blistered. Alright, done for the night most likely. I'm going to go wash my hands to make it official. Though I'm in a mood for work so, who knows. Totally going to be finished tomorrow/later today.


Got more work done today. Taking a break to get something to eat. I think it is definitely going in a direction I like. I hope I can keep this up. I totally can... totally...

Sketch Scratch Board

The beginning of my next scratch board. I'm putting the fairies on the back burner for a bit to crank out the new stuff. Anyway, totally don't know why I drew this besides that I like nuns, weird shit and I watched a ton of shows on weird apocalyptic religious sects and their architecture and junk today with my dad while doing house work. Apparently Friday the 13th is superstitious because on October 13th, 1307 King Philip ordered the arrest and execution of all the Knights Templar in France... well at least that's one of the superstitions ... my dad wouldn't tell me if that's the reason he is superstitious about it but when does he tell me anything when it comes to that. Whoa tangent. So yeah this is some funky weird nun/priestess who can foresee the future with the infernal eye or something to that effect. So yeah, sketch on the board and away we go.


Here's some more work I did tonight. My hand is starting to cramp so I think it's time for bed. I really like how it is coming along so far. If I can manage to not screw anything up it could be a really neat piece.

So here's to hopefully quantity and quality!

*EDIT #2*

So apparently my dad is superstitious of the number 13 because he broke his arm on the 13th when he was 13 and several members of our family died on a 13th of a month and some even on Friday the 13th. Weirds! Anyway more progress.

Art Throw Down... Post #1

So, a friend of mine and I decided to compete against each other to see who could produce the most work starting from April 1st and ending June 30th, winner gets total bragging rights. I figured a good way to keep track of what I've produced is by posting with numbers. See the lovely #1 in the title. Anyway, starting simple. Quote of the Day.

Hopefully I'll post some more work later this evening.
