Last night I listened to Dusty Good's interview with Jim Mahfood from http://audiohenchmen.podbean.com/. It was really cool hearing about process and hard work. Be aware there's some strong language there, if you wanna take a listen. Anyway, this is what I had after I was finished (Courtesy of Pixelovely for their hands):

Tuesday, April 22, 2014
It's been busy. I moved out and am sort of semi-homeless at the moment. I'm moving back into my parent's house, but there wasn't room to unpack all my stuff because everyone is at my parent's house for Easter, so I'm staying with some friends, but I don't have my scanner and so I'm not uploading anything.
And I don't use or endorse the use of drugs, but it was April 20th so I drew a marijuana leaf because I thought it was funny. Maybe that's not appropriate.
On Thursday (I think) I went to talk to a professor about some Fall 2014 scheduling conflicts, but I forgot it was comiccon here in Salt Lake City, so everyone was gone. Except for Perry Stewart (I can't find his website!!!). So I asked him instead. We ended up spending quite a bit of time discussing how I was developing as an artist and ways to improve. It was very helpful, some much-needed direction. I've had to examine my artistic habits and make plans to try some new things.
...But it's hard when I'm living semi-homelesssss.
Here's an update on the ol' frog prince. It's coming along, I'm going to try to finish it this afternoon. Scanning it in I realized that it's incredibly unbalanced and I need to add more weight to the right hand side to bring everything back into a state of artistic equilibrium.
This is important here because it's a character against a background with a shadow. It shows depth and stuff. Something I'm gonna keep working on. And yeah, it was April 20th, so there's the obligatory stupid drug reference.
Most of the time, all the people have similar bodies in similar poses with similar faces. It's weird and something else I wanna fix. I want to create new things, not draw the same guy over and over again.

Sometimes I wonder how frequently I give blog posts the same title. Ha!
Update on Frog Prince (first mentioned here):
Haha. So yeah, it's turning out exactly the opposite of what I was originally thinking. He's a nice Buddhist frog princeling.
Bus. That guy in the middle was talking so loud I could hear him through my headphones, which basically meant he was screaming at the top of his lungs.
Some dumb zombie stuff. But that guy's feet are so whimsical and ridiculous. Put some shoes on, you'll step on a rusty nail and get lockjaw
Went at it with the brush pen:
