Aw anon! I didn’t mean to be such a disappointment of an artist to you. Here you go
*goes on Deviantart to get male sitting reference poses to draw during lunch break at work*
*screen is suddenly filled with penises*
The one time I don’t want a nude and it’s ALWAYS at work.
LOL the same thing happened to me, and my husband walked in and gave me a funny look. :) I said, “It’s for art!!!” and he was like “yeah right…”
Man.. I’ve been having the longest art block, and finally decided to do something about it. Quick-ish (1 hr?) portrait study from the reference (above) found on the internet. The likeness is way off, but didn’t measure too much because I mainly just wanted to experiment different brushes/texture for fun. :)
Society6 artist promo is back! :) Here are some examples of stuff available on my Society6 store.
SAM SPRATT’s 2014 PORTRAIT GIVEAWAY
In short: Reblogs and Likes of this picture are each entries to have me paint a personalized portrait of you.
In slightly less short: Longtime followers are no stranger to these contests but for those new to this or me, I’m an illustrator (my work: www.samspratt.com ) who has worked with National Geographic, Janelle Monáe, Childish Gambino, FX, Game Informer, Angry Birds, Wall Street Journal, among others – creating album and magazine covers, advertisements, and posters – but a big part of me being able to do all that has been you sharing my work over the last 3 years. As my small way of paying that forward, I’d like to paint for one of you as I would for my clients, but ya know … for free. Maybe you want that regal portrait of you in a velvet smoking jacket to hang over your mantel, maybe one of your loved one, favorite character, or perhaps you just want me to paint you however I see fit (warning: this will 100% involve dinosaurs) – if you can think it, I’ll probably paint it – and I’ll work with you to make it something special.
As usual I’ll also be sending signed prints and haikus about your eyebrows to extra winners. The contest will stay open for about a week then I’ll randomly draw winners. You can enter on facebook and twitter for extra entries but be cool and don’t spam your followers.
My husband’s throwing a big party at our place.. like 50+ people coming, DJ’s, bands playing, beers aplenty, that sort of thing.. and I’m sitting here, and having a massive panic attack. I love my husband, and I want to be supportive, so I’m keeping it quiet, and internal.
Why do I have to not like parties like everyone else? Why do I just want to hide somewhere? I kinda hate myself right now.
