An update before I disappear from the internet for a week or so (woot thanksgiving!). I'll probably be able to check the interwebs from one of a family member's computers but I don't expect to be doing much surfing or updating so one for the road I guess.

First up is just a doodle I did in flash; still messing with line weight to a degree in it, but nothing too crazy. Sorry if the image is a bit large as well.

And at the insistence of one Mark Mullaney, I did some fan art of the great Sara King's Kevin and Hops (yay in-text links). Wanted to do some sprites so this is probably something of a WIP; might mash them together into a start screen image or something.

Crap it's almost December isn't it? I gotta start getting my act together. Thanks for looking!

Here are some of the sketches I did from the Drink and Draw; the top image is pieced together incorrectly (need to remember to get a sketchbook that fits my scanner correctly next time I get one) but it's not too bad. Otherwise the ones show here are more my favorites; pretty much all observational stuff, but it was fun regardless.

And some studies of rhinos. Figured since I did the boxing rhino a little bit ago I should keep with them as a subject hehe. These were done in Flash; good practice sketching digitally as well as with line weight using flash's brush (to a degree at least). The two marked with asterisks are from reference (man I've been spelling asterisk wrong for a while).

Hello, finally posting this month; been kinda crazy figuring out some life things, but I have started to draw more! Hopefully I can keep the momentum going and get some finished work done; yes though, on to the drawings!

Finished this image for my friends Drink and Draw get together (happening tonight actually); didn't come out exactly how I wanted it too but it was good practice. Much different sort of thing than I usually do, but I enjoyed it and hopefully I'll take another stab at it/make something along the same lines at some point. Sorry about the size of the image, forgot to size it down.

And these are some recent sketches, started off with some random faces then moved into environments. For some reason I've been obsessed with drawing rocks and rock formations lately (imagined ones I guess). Might be because of some sketches a friend from (Emily Su) did recently, and a couple of them had these really nice pen sketches of rocks. Also I'm a huge fan of Tom Scholes work, and his environments are always amazing. So yea just drawing some environments, trying to play with foreground-middleground-background separation as well as line weight.
