In the spirit of progress: some stuff from my skecthbook

I know so many talented people that I always hesitate to show where I'm at with my drawing skills, but attending Sketch Crawl 22 a few weeks ago was the kick in the butt that I needed to just chill out and do it...(I recommend checking out that sketch crawl link; people posted great work, and you may see someone you know in the photos that 'Biscuit Maker' put up!) I have to keep drawing constantly and be willing to share, because it motivates me to work so much harder!

Sea Lion Around

I sat on this baby for a while because I thought I'd have time to refine it, but another semester is ending and that didn't happen. I know it's better to keep moving forward and focus my energy on developing new ideas anyways, so here, in all its first-attempt glory, is SEA LION AROUND!

HAPPY EASTER--here's a spaceship

Because... why not? I did this at an After Effects workshop last semester, and now that I have a PC in my room and CS3, I'm running out of excuses not to play with it more (but the excuse this week is... taxes!)

Hope you all have a wonderful holiday. I will be baking a cake and drawing an environment for my realistic versions of Homer and Bart Simpson (in a typical familial embrace).

Best of luck to those embarking upon the epic big-wheel race--Godspeed, gentlefolk!

Father and Son

For a recent assignment, I had to depict 2 realistically-rendered figures in some form of physical combat. I decided to envision a lifelike situation inspired by two iconic animated characters... Guess who!

I love how the rendering of a situation can so greatly affect its overall impact...
