Trinquette Challenge

Hey yooo~ I've been gone too long...  I feel like there's a lot to talk about but I'm always too preoccupied with whatever to write it down. I'll try to squeeze in a few posts this week, maybe to talk about some recent art books I got or movies I saw. Anyway, today was a productive night. The very talented Alberto Ruiz has been doing a weekly drawing challenge for the past few months via his facebook page, and tonight I decided to participate for the first time! Basically, he posts a photo and you use it as reference for whatever art piece you'd like to make. It's totally open to your interpretation as long as you use the source material. I had been meaning to start doing these challenges for the longest time, but yeah, you know...

My interpretation:

Nothing very creative, at least not like a lot of the submissions I see with these challenges, but perhaps next time... I just wanted to use this as a study piece :). Added the numbers because why the hell not? What do they mean? No idea. It's all the same woman, so uh.. clones..?

Still behind, but that's okay.

Okay, so maybe a drawing a day wasn't the best approach, at least not yet. I've just gotten the Fionna and Cake sketch to completed inks and that took a couple days of working on it off and on. So I could say that this could count for days 5-7 or whatever.. but I wont, considering I might just try to "update as much as possible," rather than daily.

Anyway, I actually like how this came out, aside from the amount of time it took me. Most of my stumbling points were on her hands and the background- two things I desperately need to do more of. I know I say it a lot, but I need to do it for real. Just need to keep drawing and drawing.

I went to a drink and draw last night, which was a lot of fun. It was a great turnout, which is quite the opposite of the last few I had gone to, especially when it was myself hosting, and no one showed up.. which is discouraging and made me not want to host it anymore... which is what I proceeded to do (not do?). Anyway, I got to see a lot of familiar faces and catch up on people's lives. Got some sketching done, which I'll post sometime soon, and talked game industry, comics, and other fun things. We're hoping to get them going more regularly, which will be good for all of us :).

(I just noticed I used the word 'which' up there ^ a lot, which is pretty odd.)

Okay, I never know what to say. People just come for the pretty pictures, so there you go!

Thanks for stopping by.

Running late

So I'm a few days behind now with my dailies... Been super busy with work, among other things, BUT I shouldn't make excuses... just gotta keep drawing. 

Here's day 4: Fionna and Cake, Adventure Time.

More will be done with this :)


Here's Day 5: More Adventure Time with Finn and Jake.

Day 3: Peter Venkman.

I spent all evening making sure all the Gosu stuff I was sending off was to the best of my ability. I mean, I could nit-pick the hell out of them, so I just said OKAY, DONE, and let it be. So I didn't get to do my daily doodle until after midnight. But here it is! I asked Lisa who I should draw tonight, and she said Venkman. And so it was done. Sorry for the crappy photo, my computer is not hooked up to the scanner.

Goodnight, or morning. No one's reading this.

Btw, I said I wouldn't be updating every day... That'll probably start happening once I get a few days behind, which knowing me, will happen.

Sketch-A-Day #1

No idea if this will last, but I must march on the best I can. 30-60 minute drawings, one a day. I don't like the idea of updating this every day because then it feels like work.. So I'll do batch updates, hopefully nothing exceeding a week's worth of drawings. Also, if I miss a day, I can make it up before doing the batch update, and no one will know... But for real. Gonna try to not screw this up.

January 1st, 2013 - #1: Babs

I fought myself a lot on this one. Mainly because I want to set a time limit for myself, and that means I need to not be so picky. No you can't start over, no you can't do a different subject, just deal with it.

Welp, that's #1.
