iPad blogging test post

I've just purchased a new iPad, mainly for working on a new book and for blogging from the studio. I'm using Procreate for making art on this iPad, and holy crap is this program awesome!
right now I'm trying out Blogsy for my blogging editor, hopefully this makes it easier to blog from the studio than using my phone. I also hope the photos turn out better than my previous setup.
Ok, back to painting!

This new style thing finally starting to come together

Or, the maddening process of deconstruction and reconstruction.

Here's the first result that I'm maybe a bit happy with:

Deconstructing how you imagine and compose your images and reassembling the into a new way of working is a frustratingly slow process. Actually it's not just reassembling, because it involves trying to incorporate a whole lot of new techniques and ideas, so it's a really messy maddening process. Mainly because you know you have to do it to expand your art, but you're not making any money while you're doing it, and you really don't know if you're going to end up with anything sellable at the end either. Ack.

Here are a couple of detail photos. (All taken with my phone, so photo quality might not be great)

New workinprogress

My latest attempt in my search to find a new painting style, at the Underpainting stage.
