Some stuff

Here are some drawings I did of a girl dressed in a Princess Leia costume. I need to figure out how to make the drawing 'jump out'. It was more of a life drawing exercise for me, but she was definitely enjoyable to look at! I wonder where these girls hang out?



Also some random sketches and doodles done last month.


Sorry about the poor quality of the scans. Enjoy!

A long time

Sorry for the lack of updates. I've been drawing alot, but everything has been in my sketchbooks and I haven't scanned anything yet.

I went to NY Comic Con last week and it was great to meet some of my favorite artists! I chatted with Alberto Ruiz and David Coleman and they both gave me some great advice! I picked up "The Art of Animal Character Design" and "Confessions of a Process Junkie" and my personal favorite, "Eye Candy From Strangers Vol. I". All the books are excellent especially "The Art of Animal..". There are alot of great tips in that one!

I've been thinking of going back to school for 3D Design and Character Animation at William Paterson University. The hold up is the classes are held during the day which would prevent me from working a 'regular' job, and I don't know if I want to saddle myself with another 15k in loans as I am still paying off my graduate loans. I don't know what I want to do at this point, but I really lost my drive to become a teacher, so I'm in a holding pattern right now....
