    Default January/February Entry: Lair of the Alchemist

    Ok, well I wanted to try something new but I've been wrapping up one commission, starting another and trying to figure out what to do for final touches on my Current Monthly Challenge entry. I'm also reading three books and running a business.

    But then Geamon asked me why I haven't entered....Soooooo, this is what I was sketching out in my sketchbook. It's completely freehand and done without any points of reference other than my eye. I also wanted to attempt twisting the view by starting out the entry at a different angle and then pulling the viewer in through the door and into the branching tunnels of the Alchemist's Lair. Next time I think I'll try using some reference points though. I imagine this being linked through a Wine cellar or something.

    I have not been able to do much with it because I've been doing all these other things but I am starting in the back and working my way forward as I paint. I'm honestly not sure if I'm going to be able to complete this one on time. I know I will try just because I hate to let things go unfinished once I start. So I hope you are happy Geamon

    Once again, I go in thinking, "Man, I hope it doesn't suck". Hahha.

    Got a bit more of the halls done and the first room with the secret entrance. If I get everything done I'll start putting in some furniture and whatnot, if not, it'll just have to be the layout.

    Man, work has been killing me lately. By the time I get home it's all I can do to get through my emails and some of the forums. To top that off, I figured I would have some time today to work on this but I spent half the night being ill which has me now feeling like a shell. I think I'll just totter off in a corner and passively watch some TV or something. I hope I wake up tomorrow filled with energy and drive so maybe I can try to finish this baby off. It's been slow going though.
