Lord of the Rings

It’s Friday! And that means one thing – tomorrow is Orphan Black Saturday! 😀

My Star Wars Chrome Perspective cards have arrived and this will be a fun change. They are smaller than regular cards, I think because they are inserted into other cards… I’m not sure how these work, I didn’t do the first set. It’s fun, however, because since they are a bit smaller, the paint goes on well without warping them. Can’t wait to be allowed to show some! I’ll be doing 50, and I hope I can do a decent job.

Inserted into this post are some of what I’ve done this week, and there are more not dry enough to scan. Perna Studios has announced there is a new set in the works: Spellcasters 2: Enchanted Realms, schelduled for release in the Spring of 2016. According to their announcement: “This set will focus on Elves, Fairies, Mermaids, Dragons and Unicorns. This set will also include sketch cards from some of the top artists in the industry.”

I am so very lucky to have been invited to participate, and anyone who knows me at all can guess what my focus will be… 😛  Unicorns and dragons, here we come.

My personal focus on horses will continue after a number of commissions and some official work has been done, and, because I hate having nothing to do, this summer will probably see the addition of two new things to that focus. First will be birds – for whatever reason, I feel the  wish to draw and paint some actual birds (well, I mean on paper, not the birds themselves…), especially the carnivorous kind, and the clever, and the rare…

Second, my sketchbook will likely include some “live” sketches. We were not able to take vacation last year, so this year we might (might) take two short ones, and I’ll be bringing my tools along to try capturing places (and maybe people) on the fly. I haven’t done this for a very long time, and as a socially inept person, it is (and always has been) way out of my comfort zone. Which of course means, time to do it! 🙂

Tis all for today, have a great weekend, and I hope to have the chance to blog about Orphan Black, and some 12 Monkeys thoughts on my Blabber Blog. It’s been a while.

À bientôt!
