An Uninspiring Week

Between class work, work work, and house work, this was a rather uninspiring week for me to draw. I just couldn't get up the urge to do anything real productive, so I don't have much to offer up this time. Hopefully this up coming week will be better and I'll crank out a couple more pages :)

Ah, Spring Break...Sorta

Last week was Spring Break week. And the weather was actually starting to get nice too, how kind of Mother Nature. Sadly, I'm an employee of the university, so there was no spring break for me. Instead I had to work 8 hours a day, then come home and work on my homework.

Allow me to state that my 2-D Design Class is not really my cup of tea...but I'm learning a heck of a lot from it. How to lay out stuff, color coordination (just starting that actually), different terms and techniques. It's very interesting and I think it'll help me out a lot in the future. And my professor is great, I'll be taking another class with him come winter.

That said...the person who came up with the idea of Acrylic paints needs to be drowned in a vat of it. UGH! I have the worst time working with it and most of my designs come out terribly ugly. Those people who can use it and make something awesome out of it..I bow before them. They are gods/goddesses amongst men/women. When i'm all done using this paint, all my supplies are going out into a bonfire where I will sacrifice them to the Muses.

Anyhow, a few scribbles, doodles, etc from the past week. I really need to start posting more.

New Perspectives and Scribbles

Well, I've been slow on updating the page....bad wannabe artist, bad! Oh well, at least I have a good excuse: this week was midterms week at school. Always a busy time, even if our professor gave us plenty of time to do the work and I'm only taking one class. But nature has a way of filling in that free time.

Anyhow, while I've been doing a little bit of scribbling here and there (not nearly as much as I'd like obviously), I managed to finish reading David Chelsea's 'Perspective! For Comic Book Artists'. As you can probably tell from some of my drawings, I have had a bit of trouble on issues dealing with perspective. In his book Chelsea does a pretty good job of breaking down the concept of perspective and helping you along in understanding it better. I feel it's almost a book you have to read twice: Once to get the basic concepts, and a second time to understand some of the techniques to draw in perspective better (Chelsea offers up some pretty complex, but very useful methods for making sure you get two point or three point perspectives working just right). Even if you aren't into comics, I recommend it.

And now, for your viewing enjoyment, more scribbles.
