Well, it was a busy weekend for everyone at our house. On Saturday, Wendi and I took a drive up to the Jemez with the kids and her mom. We had a nice picnic at one of my favorite camping spots. After lunch, I took the kids on a little adventure walk around some of the trails. The kids were thoroughly convinced that we were lost (despite the fact that I kept telling them that I knew exactly where we were at all times and that I had explored this area extensively many times.) It wasn't until I guided them back to their mommy and grandma that I think they actually believed me. But they all had a lot of fun, and got to run off some of that energy.

Luckily, we got back just in time to see some heavy rain moving its way through the valley towards where we were at, so we packed everyone up, and headed out - and took the scenic route home. Felt great to be in the rain - the moisture has been very much needed.
And now for some ART...
I got the script for the next couple of pages of our first short story on Friday... So I was working on the breakdowns for that this weekend whenever I had a few minutes. I think I'm ready to start on the pencils tonight.
Before getting the script - I had been working on some practice pieces... A few of which I've already posted, and here is the last one I did Thursday night.
I don't know if this will get used for anything (more than likely it will just help to inform another image for the actual story - but it's still good practice).
The plan is to finish up penciling tonight on the first new page, and get the breakdown for the second finished up as well. Maybe even get started on inking if there is time.
My immediate concern is how/what I'm going to post while working on the next 12 pages of this story. Do I post everything I do, or hold some of if back? Post only the pencils or pencils and inks... but not the coloring/shading? Any ideas? I don't want to steal any of the thunder from the finished story... but I also want to keep posting as regularly as possible.
There's something I think I'm gonna have to figure out I guess... moving forward.
Well, anyway, that's about all the time we have for today... Hope yer' all off to a good week!
Till next time,
