WIP it good! Ha!

Here are a few WIP's:
This below is a pic of my Grandpa Eric. He passed when I was 6 or 7, a long time ago...
I remember him but only a few moments.
He owned a bar in North Dakota, Bondy's Bar, I'm not sure what to do with the background. I love the way the color pops from the background of the pure white when I use my Prisma Colors. Yet, it needs a background (and some other work on the eyes and hair...). I'm not fond of doing the exact background that is in the photo.
The color varies online from the actual on the paper. Oh well, one of these days I'll figure out which is better to use on which one of my programs with the pixels, resolutions, DPI's, JPEG's, etc.

The next two are works that I'm working on for a friend to use for the elementary school's
Where the Wild Things Are Fundraiser.
This first one was scanned and the white highlight didn't show up on the side of the trees, so on here it looks like the trees are wobbly but truly they aren't as unnatural....
dang scanners.......
Anyway, this one is done in watercolor

And this second I went for Illustration/Cartoon with Colored Pencil

And now I'm off to start something new...... Following the Masters, or Bill Guffey's Virtual Paintout-Google Challenge, or maybe Different Strokes from Different folks' challenge...... yipee! I gotta go!
