End of Spring 15' Semester

I lucked out and found a refurbished "hand-crank" pencil sharpener online. This means Derwent Drawing pencils are back in play! It takes some serious hardware to sharpen those bastards, but it's worth it.

I noticed with these tools, the line they create is REALLY dark. Without consistent attention to line weight, a pose can be ruined pretty easily. Eventually I learned to scribble a bit in the corner of the page, breaking in the pencil tip before each pose.

Back to Newsprint

Apparently I'm improving! Of course at AAU, all you have to do to cut that feeling short is peek at the next guy's easel...@#$%... 

I've almost narrowed down my tools to a back-and-forth between prismacolor black/ indigo/ brown and 8B graphite. Graphite is fast (to a fault), and helps with the really reeeally short poses.

Still Training

Pretty much from here until I get a new A3 scanner, I'm going to have to ditch the 11X14 Sketchbooks for printer paper. Or possibly the next sketchbook size down. Scanning large images just became a major pain. Anyways, enjoy.

Slowly letting go of construction as I get more comfortable. Next semester will probably be the "line weight" semester... 

Bruce Timm & WB Animation. Middle figs by me.

Harley Quinn

Theeeere ya go. Had to scribble that out of my system. Maybe I'll get back to it, maybe not. I can't really be counted on for fanart. 

Btw, of all the redesigns of Harley, "Batman: Brave and the Bold" nailed it, then dropped the mic. A shame that the idea lived and died with the show...
