Sketchbook pages

I haven't been doing elaborate projects lately, but I have been fairly diligent in working in my sketchbook and making an effort to expand my vocabulary with different mediums and subjects.  every day I try an exercise that presents me with projects that force me to try new things, or do things that I should be doing anyway but am just to unmotivated.

so here are some pages that I thought were fun, anyway.

One of the first few days I took a trip to the zoo and it was somewhat of a fiasco, so I didn't even bother posting those pages, but this watercolor was a sketch I did upon returning home, defeated. and the second page is a couple of things I drew from images on the internet

Sketched a lion and then did a color overlay in PS.  then placed a halftone in the background

left to right, pen and watercolor, 50% grey marker and acrylic (can't really see the marker but it worked out really cool as I went), and pen and Nupastel.  I had numbered 8 different mediums, and asked my wife to choose 2 numbers from 1-8, and then I used those 2.

This one was interesting because I just took random brush strokes and created creatures from interesting forms that I saw in them
