This blog...

...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.

You can see the rest of my work here.

Remember kids : if you can't make pretty designs, at least make pretty lines!

lifedrawing log - 08.27.11/08.28.11

I've noticed I tend to draw a lot of squinty, "neutral" expressions on people. *tsk*

You can tell how NOT INTO drawing shaved, naked men I was, and how the following was a welcome switch...

I'm not enabling comments for a while, as I've been getting ruthlessly spam-botted and don't care to do maintenance.  I blame The Internet.

Gino's color bitch

My coworker/coffee pal Gino Whitehall drew a viking and challenged his Facebook friends to color it. I accepted!

The original...

...and it occurs to me now that the dangly, wiggly thing hanging from his groin is probably a knife, and should have been painted metallic. Oops!

Concept Shop

Here's a private workshop I'm doing with some friends in September. Intimate venue, no posturing or bullshit...just like I like it!

lifedrawing log - 08.10.11

Overheard this at a session tonight : "I don't buy into that gestural, 'spirit of the pose' stuff." That's like saying, "I love cake, but I don't really care for that 'flour and sugar' stuff."

Minor epiphany : When a model poses on/next to a stool, its structure helps establish the perspective you're dealing with, but you totally don't have to draw the stool. You can make it into a rock or an R2 unit or a pile of cabbages.  Not sure why it took me this long to figure that one out.

brush/color test

Trying to render ACROSS forms, like my man J.P.
