|Benny and the Porcupines|
It took me two days to do this one. I wanted to make Benny and the porcupines both larger, but I have a really hard time figuring out how to do that. When they are small, it is hard to paint them. It's also TOO BIG (as they all are) for the scanner, which is not good! I lose part of the painting when I scan it. This is the SKETCH. (the painted sketch, but not the official final).
There is something wrong with this--and with most of these, the scans on this scanner all look washed out and pale.. They don't look like that on paper--that is one of the problems with actual paint as opposed to artrage--getting them digitized so they look right is hard. Difficult.

|Gorilla sketch in sketchbook|
for Brave Benny's animal Alphabet
9 x 12
mixed media acrylics and pigment markers
|Benny and the Urchins|
5 x 7, watercolor
I am not sure I am done with this and am considering inking the outlines. See the sketch below (previous post) for comparison and let me know what you think. The sketches are larger than the paintings--the paintings are 5 x 7 and hard to get much detail (for me).
