A new hairdo for my Angel

I'm taking Gut Art 2013 over at Myste's Community Thrive. I wanted to post a video of my angel's new hairdo done in Procreate, but don't know how to do it. It says to point to a URL, so I will try putting it here and pointing to it.

Art Set for the iPad

One of my favorite digital art programs for the iPad is Art Set. These are some of the pieces I've created. A big advantage to digital art on the iPad is the ability to create just about anywhere except outside during the day. It's a good way to practice drawing, shading, blending, etc.

This program only has one layer and limited undos, but the beauty of it is it's simplicity. It's very easy to learn and quite powerful.

Created in Art Set and filters were applied in PS Express.

The Mountain Lion was created in Art Set, taken into Procreate to add fur and back into Art Set for the background.

Willy joined our family on June 1, 2012. The first 6 weeks I asked myself several times, "what have you gotten yourself in to?" Up during the night, early in the morning, potty training, chewing, all the things that come along with a new puppy and at our age! It was all worth it. He is a sweet, totally house trained, lovable dog and constant companion. 

Willy had an accident while jumping up very high at our cat. She was on the kitchen counter and he was trying to correct her. He slipped on the tile floor and chipped his hip. To make a very long story short, he ended up having FHO surgery at the end of May. He is still recuperating and hopefully will be able to use his leg again. Meanwhile he does pretty well on three.

A game we used to play to get him to eat.
Two Months Old. His ears finally stood up!

He's decided he likes our food better.

His best friend, Dino. 
The day after his surgery.
The hair on his leg is growing back!

Where did 2012 go and half of 2013!!!!!

Good intentions, but...

Think I've been on Facebook and art apps on the iPad just a little too much. Keep forgetting about my blog. During 2012, I signed up for two art classes and never finished either one of them. Life just got in the way. In June, we adopted a furry little friend, "Willy" and our house hasn't been the same since.

Here he is when just a baby. He is such a charmer and so darn cute!
