Life drawing at FTS Gallery...

So, apparently there's an open life drawing class in Stratford. Win! Didn't bring many supplies, figured I'd just check it out...get some work in. The model was pretty good. Did nice poses. Hardly moved. At one point I started drawing her in crayon just to mess with her a little. She smirked. It was fun. Also, I kind of failed at the one where she sat down, so i started drawing it in a super-deformed cartoon style...which was fun, of course.

Unintentional chibis...

So, I'm planning to run a D&D game, and as I was writing the history of the deep dwarves, i felt compelled to draw the deep dwarf princess. Think I might use this to study some digital painting in the near future...

As i'm drawing this graphic novel, I keep bumping into snags. I haven't really drawn a comic since high school, so things like "Oh, I can't ACTUALLY draw those" or "What does this character wear again" pop up frequently. This is a little diagram of the main character outfits.

2012 Sketch a day: 001, 002, 003, & 004

First day back home from the long holiday adventure. Here are some scans of sketches done in the last couple of days...mostly. First is actually from a few months ago when Blizzard announced the Mists of Pandaria expansion for World of Warcraft. They released a lot of concept art, but none of female Pandarans. I figured i'd try my hand at it using influences from...well, fighting games and Kung Fu movies.
Next up, Spider-Man is a busy New Yorker, so i imagine sometimes he has to take bagels down in one bite.
I've had this idea for an animation about the adventures of a bard. The style is derivative of the Final Fantasy III remake for the nintendo ds.
Finally, one of the characters from my graphic novel is just...I dunno, she needs work. So this is me fiddling around trying to pin down the design of "Giest".
