Had the rather novel experience of playing in goal this weekend's soccer game, when our regular keeper was unable to make it. Whew, really got to smell those keeper gloves up close and personal!

Another, older sketch I did based on some character prompts from Dogbomber's awesome tool.

More quick sketches, hope to get them out semi-regularly--I've been slacking on art! And interested in more storytelling, even with the simple doodles...

(This is my long commute to work, with Studio Ghibli music in the background. The most mundane of things suddenly become way more awesome and interesting..!)

Playing Diablo III...

What I imagine my character to be doing every time I "compare" new loot after clearing an area in Diablo III..

Became very interested in Annette Marnat's blog lately, especially her gorgeous silhouettes and lines of actions--a somewhat geometric style and reminiscent of Mary Blair. This one came out of a Moth story I was listening to, in the sketching process was playing with a simpler silhouette, although I got a bit sidetracked playing with brushes along the way. (Part of Marnat's gorgeous style is the absence of line, and focusing on blocks of color, I cheated the form with some pretty broad outlines here...)

A belated Sketch Dailies update, loosely based on the Tengu, a Japanese demon incorporating avian and human elements...the word is rooted in the Chinese "tiangou", or "heavenly dog", so let's toss that into the mix as well...

A couple more sketches before bed, playing with posing and quick gestures.

Been too long since I've really drawn, other than the occasional doodling in meetings...need to keep up this habit! Off to Brazil this weekend for the World Cup, and will hopefully bring back some sketches to show for it as well!!

Friday Night Jams

Drawing to some Ghibli tunes...Totoro is a great, light-hearted and pleasant soundtrack to work to. Princess Mononoke brings on the drama! I'm still a little obsessed with the Mongolian eagle hunters (hunters WITH eagles, not hunters OF eagles!). The people, birds, and horses are all gorgeous...some freaking great photography of this area. Forgot to do more than one WIP shot, as you might be able to tell I tend to layer on sketches until I reach a composition/setup I like then start blocking in.
