こんばんは。How’s it going?

Tonight’s photo is yet another one of our cats. But this one is a little different because Yuzu is relaxing on a giant piece of toast! It’s actually a really soft pillow but the illusion is really convincing, isn’t it?

This evening I spent some time working on a drawing on the computer. Specifically, I concentrated on using the pen tool in Photoshop to make smooth selections, then filled them with black. And then I had a little fun by making the skin a bright pink.

The original sketch is one I did a few weeks ago, so if it looks familiar, that’s why. 😀

To see all the sketches I've been working on, you can check out the Flickr album "My Sketching Journey", or my Instagram account barron.sketches which I created just for posting sketches, watercolors, and stationery items.  

I hope you had a nice Thursday!

Labor Day, and a Sketch

こんばんは。How’s it going?

Today I had the day off from work and the kids were also off from school, so we hung out together all day. We got a lot done, including some final shopping for school supplies, getting Koa’s hair cut, and some more yardwork. But we also had some fun hunting Pokemon and playing Splatoon.

And of course, the dog and cats kept us company at home, even though they were sleeping most of the time.

After dinner, I sketched a quick portrait and I am happy with how it turned out. I feel like I am reaching my limit at line-drawing, and need to start learning how to shade, how to draw hair, and varying the width of my lines. It’s fun to see progress, though, which mainly manifests itself as less erasing. 😀

Switching our ISP tonight. The installation technician arrived 3 hours late at 9pm, left at midnight after unsuccessfully providing us with Internet without messing up our existing television service… Angry! Told him to put it back the way it was.

Anyways, here’s cat photo. Everything’s gonna be ok. 🐱

Monday Already?

こんばんは。How’s it going?

I love it when the week goes by quickly, but it sucks when the weekend is gone so fast as well. ☹️

Tonight’s photo is of our dog, Lani, and his boy Bay. Lani’s really a sweet dog but she can get a little jumpy around strangers. She’s really funny though, especially her guilty behavior when she knows she did something wrong. 😆

I hope you had a good Monday!
