I have been drawing robots a bit lately. I can't really talk about why yet but I assure you it's a very good reason and not just because robots are totally awesome. Also this was done entirely in Sketchbook pro. I just began checking it out but it seems like it is an amazing program for pure drawing. I am pretty sure I can do a better job of colouring stuff up in Photoshop but I wanted to experiment a bit in Sketchbook, so I resisted the urge to switch up programs after the drawing phase. I will probably be messing around between the two and trying to find a good balance for the next little while. I would love to hear some other peoples workflows involving sketchbook pro. Anyone use it?
So I have been messing around with painting in photoshop and painter, no paint bucket, all brush, all awesome. I know, I know, I just have never really used photoshop that way because I am terrible with a tablet. Speed painting is fun, well trying to speed paint, I think I am really just moderately hurried painting. Anyhow I am loving actually painting and am having a blast playing with it and trying to figure it out. Also I want to work for MAD magazine, But like back when I was a kid. So if anyone has a line on MAD magazine's hiring dept. and a time machine then let me know. Until then, look at that wonky thumb and wonder if I will ever fix it.
This is the kinda shit that happens around here. I think only 2 people will find this funny and I know exactly who they are. I don't know why this joke stuck with me but it did. For the record, Kirstie Alley used to be smoking hot, even with pointy ears.
So me and life drawing have not gotten along for a while now as many of you might be aware. Look I don't really know who started the fight but all I know is that I was wrong and I am sorry. Life drawing.....I Love you and I don't do you enough. too far?
Anyhow I am back into the whole zoo thing and I forgot how fun it is. I think for a long time there I felt a sort of pressure to perform and it really turned me off and I wasn't enjoying it at all. All I know is it felt like a chore to draw from life. I can't say I really know what has clicked in me, but I assume it has something to do with not having to produce for marks or some such crap I was inflicting on myself being gone. Either way it has been pure joy, I feel like I did at the beginning of first year and I look forward to getting back into some nudes and costumed life drawing soon too(if anyone is going let me know). Needless to say, with such a long hiatus I am very rusty but I thought I would post up a couple of drawings I liked from the other day and threw some colour on them.
Remember that retarded joke that Uma Thurman tells in Pulp Fiction? Yeah ya do. Anyhow I haven't posted in a long time because:
a) I am lazy sometimes (i.e. most of the time) b) I have been busy with work c) I suffered a mild concussion and with it a bad bout of amnesia and forgot I even had a blog (also forgot how to speak english and tie my shoes) d) all of the above
I will let you decide, but anyhow I figured I would post a bunch of stuff that is starting to get a little bit old and I should have posted it long ago but what are ya gonna do. Seriously what are you going to do?
