For a week, I was paid to paint.  Although not technically my job, I volunteered my artistic services to paint a mural of our unofficial squadron mascot.  Over the course of 30 to 35 hours, I slowly learned that using acrylics is actually pretty cool.  At first I was afraid, which explains why my bosses have been asking me for 6 months and I only just completed it...I was afraid.  The particular wall that I used was in the front of the building where everyone could see what I was doing.  But I became comfortable...well...comfortable enough to be able to paint in front of people.  I'll definitely keep using acrylics though...I want to be better than my Skull Cowboy.

I also finished a drawing created entirely in PS!  I've never done that...and if I have, it was too the level of my recently finished product, Mutated Diagnostic.  I was happy with the end result and I'm beginning to feel more comfortable using the program as I'm mainly a traditional artist, using pencil and pen.  

All in all, I am getting used to, and enjoying, trying to expand my horizons and skills in art...it's exciting!  I have work to do...I want to be better!

Skeleton Cowboy.  I did this for my job.  This is about a 4 and a half foot tall mural.  Our unofficial mascot is a skeleton cowboy.  I would say it's decent for only having worked with acrylics for the second time.  I have a lot to learn about painting period if I want to get better but I definitely had a lot of fun doing it.  It probably took about 30 hours to complete.  I did not take the picture...i know there is a glare :(

No prob...I can appreciate someone who can not only do make-up well, but do it with some nice vibrant colors...a lot of people screw that up...looks like you do a damn good job though.
