You Should Be Drawing!

Post date: January 18th, 2015 by Jimmy Dragon

Programs and Mediums Used:
Photoshop

So I have noticed that this is my first posting in 2015 and what do I post? A motivational phrase of something that I should be doing other than playing games and waste time like I have been doing the past few months. So here is my phrase that I am telling myself… “I Should Be Drawing!” I have printed this up and it is now hanging over my drawing desk and staring me in the face when I come into the room. The next time I come in and I am looking to play a game on my computer, I will be thinking twice about that, at least I hope. =D

The picture you see here was done in Photoshop using a few random images that I have drawn up in the past. I mainly stuck to my CG artwork for the images you see here since this is a CG picture. I felt that it was best. Here is a link to a larger version of the images in case you like to get a better look at it. Anyway I had better get back now and get going on some drawing! =)


Site Updates…

Post date: December 22nd, 2014 by Jimmy Dragon

So not much to report here on Jimmy’s World. I just made a few site improvements.

First improvement: I disabled comments to the website. They were just not working for me and so I decided to completely get rid of them.
Second Improvement: I added a pre-loader to the top navigation to the site. I have noticed in the past that my navigation didn’t load properly when you enter the site. Well now it does. I just hope it is rendering well enough on your browser. It’s looking good on mine so I hope it works.

And finally but not really an update but something to note. For the past couple of weeks I was thinking it through in my small brain again about redoing my website. Well in the end I decided not to because I feel that this version is pretty perfect. I think I have decided that this version is the one that will stay. I played around with different designs and I even thought of getting rid of the WordPress thing all together. But in the end, I decided not to. The site is staying the way it is with the few edits that I have done.

Now it is off to work on some bigger and better things I hope. =)


Away for a While?

Post date: October 27th, 2014 by Jimmy Dragon

Wow, where has my time gone? I feel like I have wasted a lot of time in doing nothing. Well, I haven’t done much since I have made my move to Canada. I probably have three drawings to show since my move. Well that has to change now.

Time to get this small layer of dust off my drawing tablet and get these rusty fingers on mine moving again. So how am I going to do this? Will I implement a drawing challenge again? Well maybe not as extreme as my last 100-Day Challenge that I did to myself but I will do a challenge for sure. What challenge will I do I am not sure. Maybe I will just draw as much as I can right now. Just with me writing this entry I feel the urge to get going.

Well, Halloween is almost upon us. I think I will do a Halloween picture for the site. It has been a long time since I have done one for this holiday so I think I will do that.

But you ask what has been keeping me from drawing when I was doing so awesomely just last year with my 100-Day Challenge? The only thing I can say was I was working a part-time job in the past and lately I have been working full-time and sometimes with over-time added to the week. With those hours, I would get home and I am so tired that I just find myself sitting in front of the TV, zoned out or on the computer wasting my time on stupid games or usually, both!

Not anymore. I have to place in an hour of drawing time every night and I will now. I will draw what I can in that one hour. Weather it be a start or a continuation of an awesome piece of work or, a drawing that you will ask what was I thinking? So that is what I will do. I will do something. I need to now. =)


Linda on Park Bench

Programs and Mediums Used:
Ballpoint Pen

I come once again and I bring you some new art! Here is one I call “Linda on Park Bench.” This time I decided to just do it as a pen and ink sketch and this time I broke out the ballpoint pen to do this one. I really do like how a ballpoint pen does the shading on this one. I just like that you can shade with a ballpoint pen. I find it a really nice medium to work with and it gives it a very nice style to it. Wouldn’t you agree? Anyway, hope that you enjoy it. =)


Linda Headshot

Programs and Mediums Used:
Pencils

Another headshot? Yes I did another head shot of a character who I have adopted named Linda. You may have seen her in the past with older drawings that I have done on the site. Am I getting tired of doing drawings like this? Yes I am but when I do draw and my mind is usually a blank slate when the mood hits me, well you get a drawing like this. I am getting into the mood more often again these days. In other words, I do have some ideas’ in my head. I just have to sit down and start doing them. Well in the meantime, enjoy my drawing here and I hope to see you soon with another one. =)
