Portrait inspiration and more

For some time, I've been a part of this inspiring iOS app called Sktchy which allows creative users to draw from one another in portrait form using any kind of media and subject matter. It was this method of having a form of visual exercise and inspiration to get creative juices flowing. And I think it works out pretty well. 

Sketch of a female artist's portrait I used with a horror theme.The app itself is a really great way to talk to other creatives and observe how they draw portraits in their own way. It's not meant for just professional work but also others who may be hobbyists which is welcomed. After all, they're there to put themselves out there to share their creativity. Portraits are queued as images to be used as reference points. Once the art is finished, the queue is then linked as the inspiration source. I've noticed that a lot of the artists on there use their sketchbooks, even moleskines which I swear by. 

For those who are looking for creative inspiration to experiment with, give Sktchy a try! 

As for other things, it's been a bit of a slow summer and I'm currently working on a few things. One in which I hope to finish by September, hopefully in time for the annual Art of Horror in Burlington, VT. Near the end of August, the Vermont Comic Con is something I'm looking forward to attending and would love to score some gems from the vendors as well as seeing how the local artists and writers are doing. I can't wait.
