It's been a bit since my last update. Sorry about that, holiday time always seems to get hectic.
I wanted to create a beautiful Thanksgiving picture for everyone to post this week, but that is just not going to happen. I have been working very diligantly on a few different art pieces but, as they are Christmas gifts, I can not post said artworks until after the recipients have opened their presents.
So, in lew of another piece of Thanksgiving artwork by me (yes, I am counting "Cow Meat" as the first piece for Thanksgiving), I am showing off an adorable Thanksgiving work that I've come across on DeviantArt. This piece was created by Yukenna of DeviantArt and is, in my humble oppinion, adorable:
With that, I wish you all a happy Thanksgiving, as I likely will not be updating again until after the holiday. Safe travels to everyone who will be traveling and I hope everyone takes the day to be fat, lazy, and in the company of family or friends.
P.S. As a random bit of humor to your holiday, here's a bonus bit drawing by Gorillastrations of Deviantart:

Just a quick image update to show that I haven't forgotten poor Lucivar...he was just backburnered for a bit.
I'm trying to get him as detailed as possible while still maintaining the feel of the original drawing. Comments and criticism welcome.
P.S. At some point, once the basic skin is done, he will have pants...and a mug...and wings.
P.P.S. While you're visiting, pop on over and view the newest page in our site! It is on the Wacom Cintiq 12WX tablet.

Thanksgiving approaches and I’ve taken it into my head to create a new holiday desktop wallpaper. The wallpaper is titled “Cow Meat:”

I drew the entire line art version of the picture using the Pen tool in Photoshop, which is a very difficult tool to master. This is one of the first drawings that I’ve done entirely in Photoshop….as in: I didn’t sketch it on paper first before moving it to the computer.
The finished piece totals 69 layers and 8 layer sets (for those of you who are unfamiliar with Photoshop, a “set” is a folder of layers). I don’t know about anyone else, but this is definitely a record for me. I’ve never worked with that many layers before. Actually, I think it about killed my computer to work with this many layers today!
Special thanks to Redheadstock of DeviantArt for the grass and cloud brushes and the wood pattern that I used in this picture. Also, special thanks to DragoArt.com for their “How to Draw Baby Birds” tutorial, which I used to help with the basics of my turkey.
Happy soon-to-be Thanksgiving! Enjoy the wallpaper.

This is nothing but a show-off post.....but looky what I made my daddy!
It is for the new website he is building. I felt the need to stick my nose into his graphics (because the ones he was using weren't custom at all) and whipped this up for him. Yay for having a OCD graphic-oriented daughter! At least, hopefully he's thinking "yay" and not "wow, that is hideous." LOL.
You may now carry on with whatever you were doing before I decided to interrupt and show off my graphic goodness.
Well, comment first, then carry on.
