June 13 work in progress

It wasn't until late afternoon that I realized it's Friday the 13th, and I thought "well that explains today." Today has been extremely crappy and frustrating but I'm not going to get into it until it's resolved, at which point I will hopefully find the situation somewhat amusing. Good grief! :-(

The weather makes me grumpy too. It's not even summer yet and I'm already sick of these stupid hot temperatures.

Anyway, works in progress, neither of which got much attention the last two days (aaaaack!)


Scrimshaw... okay I'm thinking of just sticking with black and white on this. I don't mean for that to be the lazy way out, but I'm really afraid of screwing this up if I put color into it. I remember how much black detail I lost when I added color to the dragon, and that'll happen here too. I think, if I'm going to do color, it needs to be a piece that has "no deadline" because I have to let each layer dry A LOT before I add more. And this has to be done within a few days, so... yeah, I'll just do b/w. Obviously it's not done. Heck I can always do an elk in color on the next one. I need more practice with color in order to be able to do it the way I want.
