...was initially for pieces done on a computer, but has since become a free-for-all. Here you'll find process work (digital and otherwise), sketch pages and studies, sometimes with commentary.

Art direction FTW!

This was too cute not to post : a little love note from my Creative Director at Vigil, or a very clever forgery. Perhaps it was left in reference to some pillars I'd drawn, perhaps just for the heck of it. Video games can never have quite enough penis.

lifedrawing log - 02.10.09

Still not man enough to charcoal it up at charcoal town, but you can see a difference between the bottom row and the top row in terms of value boldness. Now if I can only lay it down smoother. I'm considering this china marker / prismacolor treatment my "training wheels", so that when my thinking improves, I can graduate to a more difficult medium with those hurdles crested.

Thanks to Paul Adam for pointing out this enlightening tutorial by Nathan Fowkes. Aaaah, people who know what they're doing....

Thanks to Paul Adam for introducing me to Prismacolor sticks! They work well in tandem with the china marker...same waxy texture, 'cept bigger, which was what I needed to block in fatter fields of dark...gonna take some time to get used to working with these. Charcoal be damned!

Thanks to Tiffanny and Stephen Varga for showing me the Listo china marker holder pen and refills -- less frustrating than tugging and peeling actual china markers. They're apparently targeted at glass and steel workers, so you won't find them in most traditional art stores. Some office supply stores and drafting stores carry 'em though.
