AVAA Life Drawing, 5/21

Keeping at it, trying to stay in form for ComicPalooza this weekend.  This session's model was the always-excellent Britney.

1-minute poses.

More one-minute poses..

The center sketch was 5 minutes; the two on either side were 10-minutes.

15 minutes.

'Til next time!

New Sketchery


Not much to report since the last post.  Been keeping busy!

A couple of observational doodles..

One random sketch..
And, trying to get back in the habit of daily themed drawing!  Trying to do multiple ones too, so I have the chance to experiment more.
Day one, centaur girls; Day two, plant-people!  Getting my fantasy on right outta the gate.. :D

Grind Grind Grind


Sorry; it's been awhile since I've updated :\  Things have been awfully busy at work, on a lot'a stuff I wish I could show off.  Same for my Reichenbach pages; progress is being made, but no showing off just yet.  Knocked out a lot of quick sketches at Staple!, but didn't have time to photograph 'em... So, not a lot to show off right now :\  Hopefully there'll be some new work soon as I gear up for the run of comic-cons beginning a month from now!

But I do have a few sketch-cards, a couple'a ink-doodles, and a few life-drawing sketches!  Some are figure-drawing from an AVAA session, and others are from people-watching around town.  Check 'em out~!

Here are the one-minute sketches:


...And the 7-minutes I bothered to scan:

Back to Work!

I slept last night, and ohhhh was it awesome.

Hadn't really done enough of that lately.  Most'a this past week I put in overtime at Powerhouse Animation, making up for missing last Friday because all the weekend before that was convention time!

New Orleans!  The Big Easy!  NOLA!  It was my first time in the town, and I must be honest, I wasn't mentally prepared for the party it proved to be.  Normally we'll roll in, have a nice dinner someplace near the hotel, and spend the rest of the evenings hanging around in the hotel lobby and drawing on this or that.  This is not what happens in N'Awlins.

What happens in N'Awlins is, you roll into a restaurant like Mulate's filled with live music and dance, and you're presented with the best food and drink you can ever remember tasting.  Perhaps you partake in a little more to verify that yes, yes indeed, it is the best.  Perhaps a few buddies get in on the music. Perhaps a few other buddies decide they want some beignets, and you find yourself following them down Bourbon Street in the middle of the night to find some and yes, it turns out that they ARE that wonderful.  That's New Orleans.  It's an overwhelming feast that makes you want even more, and somehow when you go for more it gets even better.  What a glorious, dangerous scenario.

Next year I come armed with this knowledge.  Either I'll just plan not to work after dark or I'll stick to the hotel like my life depends on it.  A guy could stand to save a lot'a money that way; that awesome food I mentioned, it isn't cheap :D

Anyways -- The show!  Great times had; got to have a lot of fun, snap photos of a lot of cosplayers, came home with a few more trades to read and a few fewer prints & sketch-cards to sell.  I'm pleased to report that the X-23 piece Vo Nguyen and I collaborated on sold like crazy out there; the whole 40-print run was gone an hour before closing on the first day!

I wasn't able to get pictures of all the sketches I did throughout, but here are the few I was able to:


Drawn on red illustration board with ink and a touch of white gel-pen. 

(Not actually drawn in New Orleans, but a few nights ago at a pizza-place in Austin)

Another sketch card.

Looking forward to my next appearance!  It'll be Staple here in Austin in March; I don't know how official my set-up's going to be, but I'll have some fun stuff to show off!  In the meantime, there's a Naked Lunch session next week.  Don't let me forget to post the results!

Down to New Orleans!


So... Evidently, the last time I posted an update was on November 14.  About the same time I started playing Skyrim :X  There are certain conclusions one might draw from that, but I actually haven't so much as launched the game in over two weeks now -- Been busy at the grindstone!

First off, there have been not one but TWO Naked Lunch sessions, which means lots'a life drawings..

I've also been readying new stuff to sell for New Orleans Wizard World, going down on Jan. 28 and 29 in Big Easy, Louisiana.  Started small with sketch cards..

..And an inkwash of the Spectre, which was a lot of fun to do so here's hoping I'll learn enough to continue..
..And then some full-sized 11" x 17" prints!

Pencils and inks by Vo Nguyen!

So, yeah!  If you want to come out to NOWW and buy up some'a this stuff, I'll appreciate it :D

Meantime, I'll try to get back on top of updating around here!
