I Thought of Something Funny

I don't remember what it was!
Here's some pictures from this week.
In my figure class we just started doing draped models and I'm learning so many cool things.

Oh, I just remembered the funny thing I was going to tell you. It's not really funny, but it's something. Last Sunday I was complaining about how I wanted to update my tags. I did figure out a way, but I haven't really done much about it yet [I.e. you are a lazy fiend! - Ed]. I made a couple changes but it will take a while to reconfigure everything the way I want it to be.

I just remembered the real funny thing I was going to tell you. On Wednesday I went with my work buddies Eden, Cord and Nui to a comic jam hosted by Jess Smart Smiley. He had this crazy idea to have everybody make comics with branching storylines. So we folded paper in such a way to allow the other artists to add on to our ideas. It was hilarious. I'm posting my favorite path from my story here (right click and open link in new window for a better look):

Some figure studies I didn't hate from this week:

Then, for that same class, we had to draw 100 hands. I picked some faves, cuz there were some truly rotten hands and junk. Reminds me of this post. I also used the same tool from Pixelovely to handle that. Hand-le that. Ha.

Then some other junk. A merchant guy.

This next one? I'm posting it because in between waiting for paintings to dry in Richard's class, he walked by and said he loved the sketches I was doing. Now that's a heckuva compliment! So you get this guy, diving gracefully through the air as he peppers his foes with bullets.

Finally, this week one of my favorite bands announced a new album/tour. Great news and congratulations to Between the Buried and Me!


  1. As always, your hands look amazin! I went through and looked at all of them individually. And I like the "Snap out of it!" part of your story. Punch an alien!

    1. Whoa, really? I'm glad I didn't post all of them then, you would have lost a thousand hours of your life! And the alien's face is so sad at that part of the story!

  2. Wow, think of all the time you could have saved if you just drew my hands like I asked you to!

    BTW, we need to talk about your merchant guy! His weapon looks, um, odd.

    1. Nope. I guarantee you would have complained if I made you hold your hands still for 5 hours! Ha!
      And yes, it's unfortunate that the sword is belted at the hip. This isn't the first time a handle has become inappropriately phallic, but unfortunately there's nothing I can doooo!!!
