Animation Dump

Converted all of my videos that weren't working to avis, which seemed to solve the problem. Here they are...

Pretty Cliché

I found this sketch half coloured sitting on my hard drive, so I finished it. Woo!

Ball Bounce

I've finished the first three assigned animations, unfortunately I can only show you one of them because the other two have been unable to be converted by Vimeo, YouTube or a video converter I have on my computer. So hopefully that's resolved soon.

Last Month's Work

I was very lazy last month, but I have a feeling I'll make up for it over the next two years.
Anyways, here's some stuff I did, but forgot to upload here.

I did this one for a contest.

Nosebleeds are always fun.

And I finally decided to jump on the batwagon and do Joker fanart. Only this is a bit of a mashup between Heath's version and Batman the Animated Series' Joker.

Oh, yeah.

I forgot to update about the laptop situation. My Vaio suffered too much damage to be viable to repair, so I got a refurbished Dell (shuddap) at a good price to replace it.

Unfortunately most of my software is either packed away or lost in some parallel dimension. All I've been able to scrounge up for drawing digitally is PhotoShop Elements, which works, but PS C2 was pretty much an extension of my brain, so dealing with the different "simplicified" interface tends to throw me off my drawing groove.

I really hope C2 shows up when I'm unpacking or I might kind of freak out. Anyways, BED.

Claw Girl

I felt the need to draw something, unfortunately, due to exhaustion and lack of time this was the best I could do right now. There are so many things wrong with it I kind of just want to burn it. If it were possible to burn a pdf that is.

The claw was just slapped on during a fit of good ol' fashioned not-being-able-to-draw-a-fucking-hand, which is always fun. Oh god I need sleep.

Sad, puddin'.

I know, I know. I totally suck. I'm going to try to have another go at the one sketch a day thing once August rolls around. This month has been kind of a loss. A big crazy, messy, loss. I would elaborate, but that shit's for LJ.

Anyways, I drew a depressed looking Harley Quinn. Check it.

Laptop Update

I plan on dropping off my laptop at a local computer repair shop tomorrow. So I don't know how long it will take them to fix the damage, if they can.

I'll update when I either get it back and upload my backlog, or if I discover that there's no hope for my poor Vaio. I hope it's the former.

My laptop is a piece of crap.

So here's the deal: My DC jack broke a few days ago. The little thinger that keeps the power cord's plug in place snapped off, and so now it's very difficult to charge my laptop's battery. Couple this issue with the fact that my battery is more or less dead, and we have an annoying situation.

As if that weren't enough, for some reason my broken DC jack is causing the actual plug-in on my power cord to get so magma hot that not only have I burned my arm on it more times than I can count, but the glue holding the metal plug-in in place is actually melting.

Now I'm no computer expert, but I do have a small fragment of common sense. So, if there are any interruptions in my uploading schedule, it's because I'm giving my laptop a rest. I'm planning on sketching in my notebook, scanning them and uploading the sketches, and hopefully that will give my laptop enough down time so that it doesn't explode until I find a place to get it repaired or order the part myself.

ETA: Yeah, no uploads for tonight. I did draw things, which I will upload when I get the chance. But I've decided to use the last of my battery life to back up important files. I'll be back when I'm back.

Eye Study

Trying to make my digital paintings look more like paintings.

Today was not a good drawing day.

This picture makes my eyes scream with horror but I'm posting it here anywhere as evidence that I tried. I TRIED.
Somewhat better, but the shame still clings.

Horse Lady

Hopefully this will eventually be a part of a much bigger digital painting. Yeah, that's a fancy way of saying "W.I.P."

Sketch Dumpings

From a few days back. The day that I missed actually, but I was too lazy to scan and upload it then.
Trying to find a face I like for a character I'm working on.
And of course, a dominatrixy looking lady with a giant explosion behind her. The perfect end to any day.

Not so great news...

So I'm having computer issues, and unfortunately it's the only computer I have that I can use for either digital sketches or scanning. I know for sure that I won't be updating tonight, but I can't tell yet whether tomorrow will be any better. I might have to just take it in for repairs, and have no idea how long that'll take.

So just wanted to let you know that I'm not blowing this off because I'm lazy. Hopefully the damned thing'll make it through this. Wish me luck!

Sketchbook Page

I didn't feel like doing anything overly coherent, so I just sketched while watching TV. Derp derp derp.

Bird Watcher W.I.P.

Yeah, another work in progress. I thought I was going to finish it today, but it just ain't happening.

I kind of wish birds lived in my hair. As long as they didn't, y'know, poop on me.

Alien Queen W.I.P.

So, this is kind of cheating I guess. But I don't care.

Caught in the Act

This is actually about an hour and a half late, but I haven't gone to sleep yet so it doesn't really count.

I spent about 90% of my energy trying to find leads on apartments today, so this isn't so much a sketch as a child made entirely of gradients and various other Photoshop effects.

Last night I said in my Twitter feed that I'd be barfing up a whole bunch of sketches.

Uh, yeah. Apparently that was a lie. I'm painfully bored to the point where I can't be bothered to do much of anything besides watch Jim Gaffigan stand up on YouTube. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

I decided to be boring a draw an annoyed looking woman's face.
Which is what about 75% of my sketches tend to be anyway.

I've been working off and on on a watercolour painting for the last while. I spent a few hours on it today. It went from creepy alien girl...

To slightly less creepy flesh-coloured girl...


Sometimes I browse free stock photography sites for pictures to use later as reference. My favourite site being Stock.xchng.

About a week ago I found a picture of a man leaning in a door way and absolutely loved it, and figured now was a good a time as any to use it.

I tried to keep this simple and focus more on the pose and light source than anything else.

A quick perspective exercise. Tiny eyebrows.


Welcome to my daily sketch journal. Hopefully this will give me further incentive to draw my arm into a bloody stump.

The majority of the work here will be rough (as the term "sketch" suggests) and drawn by Wacom tablet in PhotoShop CS2.

Critique and suggestions always welcome.
