All the Cool Kids Are Doing It

He came to me in my head earlier today. I think he was the result of the oodles of fantasy illustrations I have seen by the pros, and my purchase of a Heavy Metal magazine (needs more naked dudes. HOT naked dudes.)

Figure Drawing 18 Septrembre.

I was delighted to learn that, this past Sunday, the cycle of ladies had been broken. I finally had a male model for my figure drawing class (yes there is nudity down below, and yes I know my blog is not flagged as NSFW.)

What started out as my usual fair of "I don't want to draw the model's head and/or other features," turned into a gentlemen's wager. My comic book artist brothers in arms, Brian Wolf and Travis Earls, wanted to out creep me on my drawings. I wish I had access to their drawings to show you all what they did, but I think we were all equally matched.

And finally, some beefcake...

I've been trying to acclimate myself more and more to digital painting, and I have noticed a significant difference in how I painted a year ago compared to how I paint now.

Below, I have a WIP painting of EPIC PLATFORM HERO11!!1! and the design doodles of his nemesis, Plutohades, the God of the Status Quo.

Some Conceptual Illustrations

To help myself out in realizing my ambition, I've tried to dedicate a few days to drawing nothing but objects, like doors and containers, and my mind has wandered off to other things. I took it upon myself to do Dante's Inferno as a conceptual study piece, backdrops, characters and objects alike, but so far, I only have Virgil drawn out.

I really like the big ogre guy drawing her.

One thing I have noticed when I am at these figure drawing sessions, when I lose focus, or can't seem to get it, my mind tends to wander off into different directions, drawing things I think I am seeing...

Hello friends,

First off, my sincerest apologies for not updating this in so long. Much has happened to me in the course of a few months, the most prevalent being me having sever the relationship I had with my boyfriend of seven years. Things got pretty ugly pretty quickly.

Since then, I have resumed pursuing my ambition, to land an illustration job in a game development company somewhere.

To better myself, I have been attending life drawing classes, and I think the results are exponentially increasing in quality.
