Speed Self-Portrait

I'll try doing some more later, hopefully faster.

Some sketchbook scraps

Just celebrated xmas with my family, kept it chill this year unlike the other holiday social bonanzas of years past. Just got the router replaced so now I can do big uploads.

End of the best semester I've had yet

It's been a little while, but I'm back after an excellent semester and I have not come empty handed. Here's some work from a project I just finished, where we individually design two forests; a good, and an evil one. My forest was based off of the forest of Aokigahara, known as the "Forest of Suicide", at the base of Mount Fuji.

I don't know about YOU guys...

...but I had fun on the rendering, after I got my reference approved (which I did NOT have fun with)
My story was an office worker who had a strange interest in women's underwear, and possibly something worse.
Only so many people in this world who have stable minds and lives.

God I've been so busy with the rendering I forgot I had a blog! I'm happy with how my portfolio is coming along, but I need more animal practice and perspective studies. Here's some stuff I did recently...

We Don't Need No More Reference

Yeah, I'd like to get my rendering reference approved. Although I'm happy I got to improve upon my concept (which got even more sick & twisted). Here's this week's drapery study, and some figure drawing from last session.

More.... MORE!!!

Hey, I'm back. I went to University Art yesterday with Amy, and we had to journey through torrential rain and skeezy bus stops. But the quest was a success, because I managed to get a few Copic markers. Here's some offerings from the past week:

Bad Music

These are some of the drawings I did last night, with Christina as the model. I think I'm digesting a rat because I noticed a drop in confidence with my work this session. Or maybe it was because the music was so terrible.

Drapery and Amy

This is some work I'm doing for Sheldon's afternoon class. I'm happy with what I'm learning so far, it's pretty exciting. Drawing is living...

Live model

I did this last night at a ShrunkenHeadMan figure drawing session, I believe it was 10 minutes.
I'm working more on pushing the pose and not just copying what I see.

Introducing "Fort" and other stuff

So my lovely girlfriend gave me an Xbox 360 for my birthday, and I'm both shocked and amazed that she did that. But instead of geeking out on Gears 2, I decided to go sketching today after class, and I drew out an idea for something I was noodling around with earlier.
I wanted to illustrate Fort, the survivor of an urban undead outbreak, who is sturdily built and dressed from head to toe in his assorted protective sports gear (umpire mask, football chest/shoulder gear and jersey, goalie pants and gloves, and a wrestling championship belt). A little backstory to Fort:
Before the outbreak, he lived in downtown Chicago, and was a multitalented athelete with a promising college hockey carreer. He lost both his parents in the undead onslaught, and is determined to be reunited with his kid sister, who was staying with his grandparents in Washington D.C.
Fort doesn't use guns; he is armed with a sledgehammer, and has sharpened the handle to a stake point. I'll be posting random crap like this sometimes ;)

My "Last Bathysphere" comic and hello

Hi, this is my first post and I wanted to start by showing something that I'm very proud of, which is the final comic I did for my class with John Clapp. I spent around 30 hours bringing this to life, from comps to finish, and I love it. I want to make more pieces with this sort of look...
