Spratting By Candlelight

Not much time this morning. I was able to throw down some basic color to set a mood for the happy couple, and I also changed Mr. Sprat's nose. The poor guy gets poked by Mrs. Sprat so frequently that he is able to keep eating as she digs her finger in. He just needed a bigger nose to take the impact.

Also, I want to apologize to anybody who has tried to view my "in process" videos recently. I received an email saying that my 2GB bandwidth for the month was all used up. First of all, thank you. That means people have been viewing them. Secondly, I am going to buy software today that should allow me to capture some cool stuff as I am working. So, the message is... hang in and I will get some better videos up for you soon.

As always, thank you so much for checking in and posting comments.

Aww I love your work. :) Those cats are just great.

I love your 'If I had a Robot' drawings, but maybe mix up the gender roles a little bit, other than that they are fantastic.

bryst: Thank you very much!

javier m: Yes, I usually go in and lay down a universal color over almost the entire piece to set a tone. In this case I knew I wanted a darker room, so my color was a cool purple-ish gray. This time around I am using the "Tinting" brush and it's blenders.

karina: You are so right. Sometimes I stray over into the "girl's have tea parties" mode and forget that they also like to do everything us boys do. Ha. I will make it a point to fix that a bit. Besides, if I don't, my two sisters will beat me up.

Thanks!
