I know its been some time since I've posted any drawings, but I promised myself I'd draw more. Also I've been doing a lot of 3D stuff on the side trying to learn to light and do dynamics and such. All that jazz! So here's something I've been working on while bored. Its VERY Bobby Chiu inspired and isn't finished yet. Lemme know what ya think!

The Review...



So here's my review on The Incredible Hulk. And lets start things off by saying this is me being completely biased. It this review isn't altered in any way to benefit or bring down the movie because I worked on it. So anypoo...

I'll give whoever wants the quick answer right off the bat...yes it is MUCH better than the first Hulk movie. By leaps and bounds. Having seen some of the footage while working on the flick I honestly thought it had a lot of corny moments and be kind of cheesy. Those parts turned out to be some really exciting parts. You know that tingly feeling you get when you watch a certain part in a movie? Well I had a few of those throughout the Hulk. The story is pretty strong, the acting is there, the visual fx were there and the entire time watching it I found myself either on the edge of my seat or making the same face as the Hulk. It got kind of embarrassing when I noticed it was happening, I didn't want people to notice :) Anyway... I don't wanna accidentally slip up here with some spoilers so I'll just end off with, GO SEE THE HULK! Its very fun and has some unexpected comedic hits to it. If you liked Ironman whatsoever, you'll like the Hulk. So all that's left is my final rating I guess..
I would give this flick 8.75/10.

So here is an army story reel which is just fantastic. One of my friends from work sent me this link in an e-mail and its really cool the amount of things you can achieve with a series of still images and some good narration/story.

February Line it up Topic


So heres my post for the February submission... The topic was to draw an animal in 3 different designs using the same style. I think I got it pretty good even though I didn't like them at first. Hope you guys like em too

late! AHHH!


Although its technically the next day, here are my poses for the day. I figure I should start worrying about cloth and gesture at the same time. They can compliment each other and help fill the gaps when using those searching lines. Work is getting hectic and I don't think I'll be able to post my line it up on time. grrr. I may have to skip the posing tomorrow or get through it quicker to finish my line it up.

day 2...


the hours at work are gettin crazy and the line it up topic is around the corner! AHHHHH!

Posing...


So I've decided I have to get better at posing and thumb nailing all at the same time. So I figure I'm gonna try and do at least 20 poses per night and post em. I've also learned I have to stop erasing and undoing and worrying about what the drawing looks like and focus more on what it feels like. So here are some poses without any undoing and without erasing. Hope I can keep it goin ;)

Angler Fish


Found a new program and I'm loving it "Art Rage 2". Its like Painter and Sketchbook had a baby! Heres what I did in it in a couple of hours..There's some kinda weird dark halo around the tail and head I can't seem to get rid of with art rage, so here it is for now until I figure out the program a bit more...

February Featured Artist!

So this month's featured artist is Mark Mcdonnell. Particularly his gesture blog. (not to say his other blogs aren't fantastic) I just thought it was nice to see a blog completely dedicated to gesture. I find its something we tend to forget sometimes when we do a drawing. It is the most important part of a drawing because without good gesture, there isn't a good/believeable pose, or just that "feeling" ya know? So! hats off to you Mark for a very nice set of blogs!

Here's an Idea...

I was sitting around and thinking hey! I don't post enough! So I'm gonna give something new a try. I'm gonna try and post a featured blog once a month. And see what people think of them.

So without any further delay...

I was blog surfing and came across Daniela Strijleva. And man was I impressed! This stuff is fantastic! Such great studies of subjects of all kinds! A visual Feast if you will.. hehe Give Daniela's Blog a visit and check some great art out for yourself!
