letters :D

WIP for a current illustration, part 2 in a Gulliver's Travel-style alien story. Just to prove I'm, I dunno, doing something.

if you want to contribute any critique, I'd appreciate it. I want to know whether it's working or not before I get into cleaning it up.

his legs look short in the thumbnail-- or is that just me? I drew a perspective guide to help with that sort of thing, but I'm not sure I did it right...

life continues- Chiustream

Chiustream is fun. If you haven't tried it, you should.

Except he recently moved the time to 5 pm, and I've got classes from 3:30-6:15, so I haven't been able to participate. But still, when I can, it's fun. Helps keep you loose. Inspiring.

in no particular order:

life continues-- drawing class

drawings from Drawing....

ok, so I really don't have much to show for this class yet. Up until now we've been concentrating mostly on perspective, and I don't really consider any of those drawings worthy of being posted....

but we recently started concentrating on value, so things are getting a little more interesting... So this is a lamp (homework assignment), some studies of shading on different shapes, and my lovely attempt at trompe l'oeil... meeses!

life continues

I have not updated in a while! alas!

To make up for it, I'm going to post a whole bunch of stuff today. Mostly stuff from FEWS, Figure, some from Drawing, and also some Chiustream sketches... but, for the sake of neatness, I think I'm going to give each their own post.

We'll start with the Figures... I filled up a whole sketchbook almost entirely with FEWs sketches... the good news is, I do think I'm improving!

here's some various drawings, more or less in chronological order (the last four bunches of sketches are from the same session... >_>; ), starting from about 3 weeks ago... the sketches are probably about 2 minutes each (30 seconds to 5 minutes, at most)... the other drawings range from 15 to 40 minutes.
