Today is Thursday.

For the UVU Illustration Club tonight we had a model come in. It was the first time I'd ever drawn from a live model and I've never been much for drawing from life. I WAS INTIMIDATED. Jeff Gagon let me sit by him and gave me all sorts of pointers. I was incredibly irritating but he was a champ and a huge help. I'll post all but one from tonight; I just really don't like to look at it. This blog is all about stark honesty but I'm not a fan of that image. Maybe I'll throw it up here tomorrow. 

This first one was the last one I drew tonight at the thing. It's my favorite and I'm quite pleased how it turned out. Her leg is a bit thin, but hey. Practice.
 This was the first one I drew tonight. There's also a strange robot man thing. He's stalking her and he greets her and she contemplates turning around. That's my take on this. Make up your own story!
 And some other junk I drew this morning. I'm not sure why I didn't scan it in when I was at a scanner in the GT building. Hmmm.

The Dreaded Laser Horse.

Today was better. I'm struggling because I refuse to allow myself to draw demon people all the time because I feel like it's an ineffective habit. I put one in today with some thumbs. Also, the Dreaded Laser Horse.

Havin' problems with his hand. 

Here I got careless and didn't bother to make sure the sword actually fit in the sheath. Shame, because it's my favorite from today. Dern it! Could have been much cooler.

I am not pleased.

Today was a poopy day for drawing. One of those days where you're just not feeling it? Last night I bought a Pentel hybrid pen and have been using/abusing it. So that's what the skinny lines are all about. If you can even tell. This brings up another thing we'll see change as I post here: The quality of my images should improve. I'm tired and hungry and didn't care and just took pictures on my phone and chopped 'em up in Photoshop and threw them up here. So in the future I'll try to find a scanner or at least care a little more. Have a good night.

Best way to get better is to do it all the time. I'll try to post once per day.
