Doodles for the night

Some mindless doodles.  Homeboy looked more butch, but I messed around with a more eastern appealing face after.  I realized that I need to get my face proportions and planes in check for this type of stuff.

Costume Life Painting

We had a special treat and got a 2hr pose this week from an awesome model. I brought my laptop with me this time and got to try my hand at "Life Digital Painting" it was alot of fun, and makes you think about so much more than just shape, lighting, color, and all this is a ton to think about in a suprising short amount of time.  This morning I was still on the kick so I pulled up a photo from mjranum-stock and did a quick exercise.

CHOW WIP + Sketchbook Nonsensticles

So here are a few sketches for CHOW# 243 : War of the Magi.  I am running with this Death (Dark) Magi style.  I have a few ideas I want to get down.  I like the general direction these are heading.  The chick has some plainness, and I definitely need to push her costume design a bit more.  This is my first time running with the CHOW folk, so lets just see how it all pans out.  So far I am liking it.  Also here goes what I've been up to in my sketchbook as of late.

So this past weekend I had some good times with some friends, and had some complete days.  Overall it was just a great weekend and towards the end of Sunday, some nostalgia of younger me began to creep up on me.  It was and interesting experience, and I was reminded of who I was, how far I've come, and how I've changed, and how much further I have to go.  I took this past Sunday as a nice lesson on how pleasant things can be and how surrounding yourself with the right people can really add a richness to life.  So now I'll just leave you with this video of this guy who has never seen this sheet music, and is a badass, but more importantly, just loves doing what he does.  LOOK AT THEM FINGERS FLY!
