Every Friday, I go to BYU to attend open figure drawing sessions. Then I spend a few hours drawing people on campus. Here are a few scribbles from those adventures.

A Strange Glow

Another watercolor. I'm trying to be more loose with my pen and brush, but I probably overworked this one.


Yet another reason hippopotamuses are dangerous.

This image is huge. Sorry, but you just couldn't see what was going on any other way.

Couldn't Help It...

Ride 'em cowboy!

I know, I know--writing twice in one day puts undue stress on faithful blog followers. How can one possibly keep up if bloggers keep posting all the time?! But I was having fun with these story thumbnails and really wanted to show them off. Besides, it's not like my posts are laboriously long, right?

So basically, I reserve the right to post as many times a day as I like. As long as you don't all boycott me.

A Twist

I love these guys! (Well, one's a girl.) Used an orange Prismacolor Col-Erase pencil to sketch the characters in, then inked it and painted it with watercolor.

I watched a pretty interesting movie last night. The City of Ember. It had its flaws, but the production design was superb. Tim Robbins and Bill Murray were in it, which was another huge surprise. Where was I when this came out? Apparently it flopped because it wasn't promoted very much.

In other news, the book on which the movie is based has a really awesome cover design. Will I read the books? Probably. After I finish the 10 other ones I'm reading right now.

Why do I read books by the dozen, rather than one at a time?

Lessons Learned While Doing Dishes

I have my watercolors back! Finally got our stuff shipped out from MD. Yippee!

I'm trying to push the sketchy/messy look a little bit. More of that to come.

In no way is this post meant to coincide with a certain film released last week. But yesterday I drew some shapes that reminded me of Scrooge. The rest is history.

...UP comes out!

Just messing around with putting digital paint directly underneath a quick pencil sketch.

Super Roach

A quick story. I think I've seen WALL-E too many times.

Yeah, I know the radioactive symbol is wrong. But I wasn't near a computer to check the symbol when I drew this. You still get the point.
