Christmas ’13: Away in a Manger

Thursday’s Christmas doodle for #HoHoDooDa.

I challenged myself to try a manger scene in a dif style. This is where it is at this point. I have Mary & Joseph, and a cow and chicken sketched out to encircle the remainder of the scene, but I started stumbling over it. Joseph looks okay, but Mary….And then the chicken and cow weren’t coming off either. So I’ll work on them some more; push through. And I have no idea at the moment what to do with the setting/background. Maybe I can get this done by Christmas…

Christmas ’13: Mrs. Clause Goes Shopping

Yes, a “doodle” (though not so dashed-off) for #HoHoDooDa. Playing around in another style and seeing where it goes. That’s what doodling is for sometimes. And I don’t like to over-work my stuff so I like the imperfections.

Warm Up: Fox in Snow

Not feeling all that able to draw today. This is kind of what it looks like outside presently, minus the fox.

Warm Up: Bear with Book

This might be kind of out of my style, but I was experimenting with the watercolor brushes primarily and just let it evolve.
