Lots of art today...

Acorns testing two different pens for how well they wash out for pen and wash...

Life sketches in pastel pencil in Stillman & Birn Alpha Sketchbook

Tortie-tabby cat for Pastel Spotlight challenge on WetCanvas, on Strathmore Artagain gray paper

Strawberries in a fancy candy dish, also from Pastel Spotlight challenge, on Stillman & Birn Alpha Sketchbook. I'm really enjoying that sketchbook, it's got a lovely texture.

It's amazing how differently the pens came out! The strawberries are very pretty. Ari is as handsome as ever.

Purr thank you! I was very startled at the difference. I thought both pens would wash out about the same.

I am having fun with pastel sketching on so many levels. I should do some more pastel drawings that I could actually mat and sell on the street too. That and get some matting done!

My current thing is badge design. Once I get the badges made for my NaNoWriMo group I'll be posting the results. It's obviously a lot more computer-oriented than your art, but I'm hoping I'll be able to get some other things done when it's out of the way. I haven't done any drawing in ages.

That's awesome! It's art! It may not be the same kind of art but digital art IS real art. I hope you can make some time for drawing too, that would totally rock. Ari purrs and sheds Cat Hairs of Inspiration on you!

I like playing with digital art, but I'd never call myself a digital artist. Even stuff like this icon I'm using is my digital art; I arranged the runestones and crystal and cards and took photos and then turned it into the icon myself, but I don't know, I just see so much really incredible digital art that I feel like I'm not doing much in comparison.

On the bright side, once the badges go from digital images to badges, people can wear them. And that's super-cool. Did I tell you how one of my Wrimos was actually the one to get me my badge-making machine? They did it anonymously, but it's someone who knows how much fun I have with badge-making.

That is so awesome! Congratulations! It rocks that someone got you that badge making machine - I used to have one and they are so cool!

I'd say the difference between the digital art you do and the styles you don't is style. I've got quite a few styles I'd love to be able to do and haven't mastered yet. Learning is lifelong.
