Crone Ceremony: Collaboration with Steve in Ander's Mole

YAY! My next Moleskine arrived today, Ander's book, woo hoo! I'm so happy! As usual, the pieces are so wonderful to see up close and personal! YAY!

My first piece is a collaboration with Steve Loya. The finished piece is on top and his contribution is shown below. Unfortunately, the scanner didn't get the colors quite right, but I guess I can live with that. It's done with markers, some from Andrea. I discovered, as I'm sure many of the rest of you have, that some markers work MUCH better than others!!!

If you click on these, they will get larger.

3 new value sketches

BB at dinner tonight

I made this tonight, first with gel pens and then colored
pencils--using only the basic colors (I had no flesh tones or anything
but like basic green, so I tried blending pink orange yellow and
brown. Unfortunately, the subtle tones did not scan well, and the ink
scanned much darker than the pencil. But oh well, here it is.

Trying for a likeness

A quick sketch from life of BB in the back of the Mole from the last round, which still has a few blank pages. I'd like to be able to do likenesses. Click sketch to enlarge. I'd really like to be able to do likenesses!!!
