Some Dragon-Bird Thing

I've got some new things in the works. Just started a new project at the ol' Running with paintbrushes blog. So since I don't have anything big to show right now, here's a sketch of some dragon-bird thing that may be making an appearance in my next painting.

The Witch of Fallows Heath

Well as usual it's been waaaay too long since i've added anything on here. Sheesh! Where does the time go? I just finished up this little painting as part of our project at the collective blog Running with Paintbrushes. It was a bit of a departure from my usual routine. I started the image with a loose charcoal drawing using very little reference. I mounted a printed version of the drawing as usual and then proceeded my painting without much reference. I did make a little color study in photoshop, and had a general photo for the lighting and the bird. So it was fun to go at this one without much of the tedious reference work and planning (though I do enjoy that part sometimes too).
