As I continue honing my digital art, I still dip back into traditional media whenever I can - much like I did with wax crayons on my Silhouettes At Sunset collection a year ago:

Recently, I picked up a paintbrush for the first time since junior high school. One Sunday evening, Brushstrokes and Beverages hosted an acrylics painting class at the Aquarium of the Pacific. There, I painted this piece:

If you're in or around Long Beach, California, and are interested in a fun, no pressure, acrylic painting class, you might want to check out Brushstrokes and Beverages:

While I maintain my digital focus, I plan to continue experimenting here and there with "old fashioned" media. After all, no sense in letting the art supplies in my inventory go to waste:
-Watercolor paints
-Charcoal pencils
-Wax crayons
-Colored pencils
-Copic pens


Less than a month until Rainbow Rocks hits the theaters. Needless to say, I'm already entranced by the Dazzlings.

I don't think I ever worked with oil paint. How is it in comparison to water color?

I remember in my youth molding and painting a clay statuette of a dinosaur, which got the kiln treatment. If only I'd held onto it.

oil is tricky. it's practically the reverse of acrylic paints. it also takes a loooooooong time to dry.

which is good and bad. I'm a very impatient person when it comes to oils sadly.

you can still use clay. there are a lot out there that don't need a kiln. I use something similar to white versa clay (#25 i think) for practice. it stays moist and i can always take down and reuse.

then there is super sculpty. you can bake that badboy in the oven or boil it. kilns are awesome and if i ever get the funds i would buy one. but in the meantime there are other ways
