This drawing is for a drawing challenge I set for myself for the Dicebox Process Journal (more details here.) Well, a sketch challenge really--I want to get used to the idea of sketching and playing again and so have a goal of spending only 2 hours per sketch max, maybe 3 if I do something tricky. This one might've logged in at about 2 and a half, but partly that was me getting used to watercolors again--which is another purpose of this exercise, to play with half abandoned art supplies. Though I also want to try to get comfortable sketching directly on the computer.

Anyway, it's been a while since I did a watercolor, last time was this Mare sketch I did in 2003 and that actually has a good amount of color pencil involved. Getting this art to scan well is a bitch, this is an okay representation on the sketch in question, at actual size (3.5" x 6")

And, as explained in the entry that contains the prompt table and guidelines for this sketch challenge, the subject matter will be of situations before or after the actual time period of Dicebox the story. This is after by several years.

Nice to see this side of your art (I'd missed the Mare sketch before). I wholly agree with getting away from the computer and playing with the colored dirt once in awhile.

Thanks--it's cool to see you watercolor as well!

I loved doing a sketch-blog to get me to shuffle things up a bit. It's fun! Nice to see a shake up of your work, looking forward to more. :)

I've always admired your spirit of exploration in your art. I do hope I actually shake things up!
