I'm so proud of myself that I can hardly speak (type)! I drew this piece without sketching first (I did a study for it, is that cheating?), this is kind of a revolution for me. I think I'm going to draw like this from now on. Ok, it's not a mastepiece, but I'm learning. I even like the mistakes I made! I love it! Even if you don't. It's not ready yet (I know I always say that), I'm going to post a finished piece later this week.

I'm experimenting with the traditional illustration look here. I really like how the blue turned out, I've been trying to achieve that particular blue-red combination for some time, and there it is! Ironically it's not just one shade of blue, but kind of a subtle gradient.
I think this fits the IF topic this week, "wedding", if interpreted very loosely.. anyway, it's the closest I have at the moment.

Trying to get rid of my stack of unfinished pieces! This is done now.. I think. Hmm.. I'm getting new ideas for it now that I'm typing this, but I really need to draw the line somewhere..
Usually I feel weird about doing backgrounds, especially landscapes like this, but I think it works out fine here. It's very cliche landscapey, but that's what I like about it actually! And it does look more finished now.
edit: colour variation
edit2: this is the last one, I swear.

This is going to be another t-shirt design. It needs something, I'm not sure what, but I really want to finish it. I have an annoying habit of leaving pieces unfinished, at this moment I have three or four illustrations that I could add to my portfolio, if I only took the time to complete them. I hope I'll get it done this week! My To Do -list for last week failed miserably by the way, I only barely got one thing done; the IF-submission. I'll have to think of something else. Electric shocks?
