This was the example I made for my students in class. You can see the unfinished version in the previous post.

I like comics and I like doodling. This way I get to practice one while playing with the other.
This drawing is done in black india ink, and graphite gray oil-based ink. I used two sizes of pens and one big, chunky brush just to see if I could do the whole thing with that big of a brush. It probably could have been better with a better brush.
After reading how-to blogs I scanned this drawing and stitched it together in photoshop. Not bad for my first time. I know reducing the size helps too, but I think I fixed all the seam issues I had. If anyone out there knows any tips and tricks that help in that process please add some comments below.

Here's the original drawing I promised by a five year old!
If you know anything about art education this drawing is quite advanced for a five year old. Some things to note the high horizon line, and the fact that the blue sky isn't way on the top of the page, but filling up the whole space. I didn't teach her any of this stuff either. She has done a lot of art and is working through her experience in the world on her own, which makes it all the more remarkable.

I'm sending it back. I will rescind the title of this post if they mail me a good shirt...I changed the title because they're sending me a new shirt based on these photos.

These bushes were right outside the house we were staying at in Hawai'i and I liked them a lot, so I drew them...or at least started to, but then I got eaten by mosquitos.

This is the painting assignment my students are working on right now. Here are some process pictures of my painting.
- Must be based on at least one aspect of music. Either an artist, a favorite song, or an issue important in the music industry.
- Must contain the silhouette of at least part of a person.
- Must show some different painting techniques.

My students are doing music and art paintings. They are doing much better than I am. Their sketches were due last week. Here is my sketch.
This just makes me think, "wow, you are left brained for an art teacher, and how in the world will this make an interesting painting? It's so cartoony and design-y!"
Hmmmm. We'll just have to see.
