School starts next Monday...

They still haven't posted the class information online! I'd like to go to class prepared, and there's no information! It's upsetting because they demanded tuition weeks ago. Get with it, people! What am I paying you for!? 

Anyway, here's some stuff. I was going to do more but for some reason I'm only getting partial functionality again with my tablet. Any ideas why it's doing this? I have a Wacom Intuous 4. I tried downloading new drivers, maybe I'll uninstall and reinstall stuff. Argh.

I have a runny nose

I drew this a coupla days ago but never got around to posting it. I might add some more frames and animate it.

I drew this before I went to work today. I wanted to explore some different emotions besides hatred, bloodlust, and looking slyly to the left or right.

And a precious dragon and Buddha man.

Christmas Break, I'm Lazy, etc.

I'm too busy not working hard to upload my blog. I've been drawing, but uploading is a pain. Bleh!
I got into all my classes! All that waitlisting maybe paid off? I'll probably want to die because three studio art classes is too many. Forgive the lack of forthcoming updates this week; updating takes a back seat to stuff. I'll be around.

No time, I need to eat and go to work

And my stupid art history final is tomorrow, I'm mostly prepared but maybe not so much? ARGH I HAVE TO GO

Today, I went to work!

Then I came home to draw some things, then I show them to you. I also wrote in my journal today. I'm a pretty bad journal keeper, but since I moved out in August, I try to write once a week... Ish.

Hello!, etc.

We passed 10,000 views! Thanks for coming to visit my page of scribbles. Here are some things:

This first one has a trouble maker, and he's got a mischievous look on his face. There's also a guy with a gun and a carrot... Kinda.

Then I have this monstrous beetle. I didn't use any of these items for reference, but I went back after and tried to figure out where my unconscious brain had stolen everything from. By the way, I read Battle Angel Alita: Last Order Volume 17 today and the ending was sweet. Caerula Sanguis comes back and is rad. 

Then a random image. I wanted to draw the lizard guy in the bottom left with his mouth open, but I chickened out.

Festive (and Guest)

I'm a little confused as to what exactly is going on here, but I did it in Christmas colors. The words that aren't mine are the product of my friend Lauren. Her stuff is way cuter than mine and has 99.9% less violence. She does graphic design and greeting cards and stuff, if you need that check her site out! Her work has been on this site before right HERE. Yep. 

My copy of Protest the Hero's album got here today. I mean, I've been listening to it since the 16th of October and since this is a super limited edition thing I'll never open it, but it's cool just the same. My name is in the credits for it!

BONUS: Repentance

Here's that page I was telling you about earlier. There's a hostage situation. My tablet still isn't thinking pressure sensitivity is important, so I didn't do as much here as I would have liked.

Here's why I didn't post yesterday.

I got up at 6 and went on a run with my roommate through the snow. It was cold. Then, I went to work. We had a work meeting at 5, and I got off work at 3, so I just stuck around. I had my sketchbook with me but I was lazy and read my book instead (Curse you, Steve King!). Then, I went to my parents house and they fed me (they're the best!). Then, I met up with some friends. I got home around 9:30 and read my book until I turned the light out at 10:48 (Curse you, Steve King!).
It's not a good excuse, I guess, because I've posted later than that before, but I haven't been sleeping well (Curse you, Steve King? Not really, it's not fear keeping me awake). And today, My graphics tablet wasn't detecting pressure at all and was just dumping color all over everything despite my requests for subtlety. I'm too lazy to fix it right now. So here's something. I have more (an entire page! An awesome one, as I recall!) but I somehow forgot to scan it. I might get around to it later, but it's my roommates birthday today and we'll be eating cake (Curse you, roommate!). And Finals are next week.

OH! And by the way! My month-and-a-few-day wait on the waitlist for my last class is paying off! I've gone from 4th to 2nd place! Wish me luck.

Okay, I really need to go scan that other picture, but...
Curse you, Steve King!

Some monsters n stuff

Okay, my goal this week is to do some tutorial. Maybe I'll check out a Gnomon DVD from the school library. I'm gonna! Anyway, here's what I did today.

Today it snowed everywhere.

When I left for work this morning, snow was beginning to fall, but it wasn't until I had been there for a few hours that I saw I was going to have to drive home through it. It's never nice to drive through that garbage. I'm a fan of the nasty gray weather, but I don't like to drive through snow. That's all I'm saying. Also, gradients can make you seem far more sophisticated than you really are.

Yeah, I'm not worried about it.

It was a good day.

I was in art history today (by the way, I finished the paper!) and my teacher used "ABSOLUTELY EXQUISITE!" to describe everything. She said it over and over again. So it jumped into a picture on accident... I need to do tutorials or something because I feel like I'm producing really repetetive stuff. Mix it up! I know I say that all the time... But it's close to finals week, so I can't behave myself. Whatevah.
Yeah, I just looked and I'm ending up with so many similar shapes/themes. Hmm. It's disturbing

EDIT: I removed an image so it could go sit on Pinterest instead. That way I won't have to look at this post and be haunted by the repetition

It's snowing and cold and my fingers are numb :(

I haven't really had much to say on my last few posts. Sorry! I'm busy doing stuff. It's snowing here and I thought I would like it and I kind of do but I need to go buy food before I starve to death but I don't trust the other drivers in the snow. So I'm sitting here freezing and sketching. Most of these people have crazy hair. It's because I don't really know how hair works, I suppose. So I just kinda throw hair all over their heads. It's crazy.
School is wrapping up. My art history class is kind of slow right now. I'm doing a sculpture I like in my 3D class. I might post a picture when I finish. But probably not? Next semester is looking to be stupid. I've been 4th in line on the waitlist for a class for over a month. At this rate I'll never graduate. I can't seem to get into any required classes and it enrages me. And I just found out there's a paper due Thursday in my Art History class. So much for being slow.
