Wow. Is it really November already? Wait. When do we turn our clocks back?
So I’ve been doing… things… mostly I’ve been trying to fit in drawing while I’m not working. It’s quite a struggle, let me tell you. To be honest, I’d be happy if I could just draw and write all day. But, the bills must be paid.
Anyhoo. Here’s an accumulation of stuff from the past few weeks. I don’t post works in progress much, but it may be a while before I get to post again, so I’m going for it dammit. But first, here’s the finished stuff.
In the future, sloths will look like this, and will actually be pretty awesome. Too bad the human race will be extinct by then so we won’t get to appreciate it.
I actually started this a whiiiile ago… like in 2006. I got it half-painted and then never finished. I’ve always meant to get back to it… and so randomly one night I broke it out. It’s probably better that I waited anyway, I’ve learned a thing or two about painting and color since then.
Around the same time that I finished that painting I realized I haven’t touched gouache in a while. This was highly experimental, and I’m not thrilled with it. The digital mockup I did looks better :p so I may revisit this sometime too.
My nieces tried out for All County Choir a couple weeks ago (one made it, one didn’t, but there’s always next year). And, well, it’s not every day you get an opportunity to draw children in an environment where they can’t really run off on you.
They can’t run off… but they can still squirm a lot, which made the girl at the top of this one a challenge. Man, anytime your nieces can pick out what’s wrong in a drawing, you know you’re in trouble.
This guy at least waited until I was wrapping up my sketch before he got up and started running around the cafeteria.
Okay, now the WIP stuff.
Some random (but not too random) panels from a storyboard I’m working on.
