...And Another

I used to go for larger bikes than a 350.  I had a CX500... a great little Honda... that I rode all around Southern California.  Then I graduated to a Gold Wing.  But I always missed that 500.  It was a wonderful bike.

Anyway, my girlfriend's nephew had this CB350.  I used it to pass my driving exam for my motorcycle license.  It was such a fun little bike. 

The nice thing about this art project is I knew exactly what it would look like before drawing one line.  That felt good.

Still out to lunch...

... but here's one that I sorta like:

Some tropical foliage.  Kinda sorta.  Enjoy.

SketchBook Pro with a little finishing in Photoshop CS6.

Out to Lunch...

... for maybe the rest of the year as I venture out into my personal "voyage of discovery" (hyark... barf... urrp...) learning my elements as I draw them.

Everyone's gotta go through it.  I just wish I had done this 50 years ago.  I'm not so proud of everything that I've drawn these past weeks but I'll post a couple that don't embarrass me too badly.

All hand drawn... no ruler tools or anything like that.  Not so great... but everything was done in SketchBook Pro.  I didn't use Photoshop for anything.  Great little exercise in shading.  Decent.  Still learning...

Folks at the SketchBook Pro Facebook page seem to like this one.  Crazy... because I was convinced it was coming out so horribly.
Right now I'm working on a painting of some tropical foliage.  It's coming along.  Nothin' special.

Voyage of discovery.  Yeah.  But slowly things are starting to "take."  Give it time.

To be continued.  At some point.  Anyway...
