Approximately 3 hours with Photoshop and a Wacom.
Fantastic video put together by KreativMagazin on what a time constraint does to creativity. I really enjoy the fact that playfulness and fun are mentioned as these are some of the main reasons why we got into art in the first place. Originally viewed at Drawn.
A quick 40 minute painting focusing on values.
Awhile back, I was asked to paint a mural for my cousin. The painting was to be based off of a popular book about a little brown bear who wears a floppy red hat. As I began to flesh out the idea and draw various sketches, I realized that it had been quite some time since I had painted anything traditionally. Not wanting to use my cousin's walls as a guinea pig, I thought I would use my own. More specifically, my son's.

Thank you to all who participated in the DotNetNuke case study presented this past Monday at the St. Louis DotNetNuke User Group meeting.
As a kid, I would come home after school, open up my favorite comic books, and draw what I saw. I spent countless hours drawing characters and even going so far as to draw copies of entire pages of comic books. As an adult, I find myself with little time to draw, but I want that to change. The following drawing is an exercise for me in patience and technique as well as an effort to make time to draw. It is a drawing of Spawn created by Todd Mcfarlane (who happens to make some pretty amazing toys). I used Todd's artwork for reference.
About 15 or 20 minutes with SketchBook Pro for the iPad.
A couple of quick 5-10 minute gesture drawings from reference.
I came across the following videos by Gary Glass, the director of American Homebrewers Association and thought they did a great job of walking through the various ingredients, equipment, and processes it takes to make a batch of beer. I hope you enjoy.

A quick 20 minute sketch at various stages using SketchBook Pro for iPad. The app is great, but I have to admit that drawing with my fingers feels a bit awkward...
Quick 45 minute sketch just for fun.
