This is Barbossa from the movie "Pirates of the Caribbean".

I'm now using the Smooth paper that Strathmore puts out, instead of the Vellum, which has a bit of tooth to it. I like the combination of a 2H pencil and the smoother paper.

I did this one with a 2H pencil for the most part, and then used a 4B for the darkest parts.

I loved doing this one of Sam. Like Merriodoc, he has a very expressive face...

I love Meriodoc's sensitive face....

I'm expanding my sketch cards to include some of the images and characters from Narnia. I just loved little Lucy in that movie! Here she is, entering the wardrobe that will lead her to Narnia.

These LOTR Sketch Cards are doing well on Ebay, so I have plans to make many more! This is one of several I will be doing of Boromir.

I love doing these little mini portraits!

I'm really enjoying working with a pencil again for a while; and these tiny cards are a lot of fun to do; they're for sale on Ebay.

I'm in the mood for doing some pencil work again, so thought I'd work on a few "sketch cards", which are basically ACEO's with sketches on them instead of paintings.

One thing I learned about crows during this "crow painting" phase, is that baby crows have blue eyes. They're actually kind of cute!

Well, the crow phenomenon seems to be slowing down a bit; I'll probably paint a few more of them, because I have found it a fun exercise to come up with ideas for little paintings featuring these birds...

Just one of the many crow paintings I have been posting on Ebay this past week!
