So I saw a lot of ” How do you work up to drawing 9+ hours a day?” Well when you start working in the entertainment industry we don’t have 8 hour work days, it’s 9 hours. Some days I would be at the office from 9 am to 2 am. Also I do freelance while I work full-time so sometimes my days are more 14-16 hour days of painting. When I was working Skullgirls and my full time job. Some days I just didn’t sleep.
Sorry for a second post but a big thing for me and my 4 year development was my line art as well. It was terrible. Shaky. Clunky. Gross. It seems a little bit more refined now but I definitely want to keep pushing it to be lighter, delicate and more energetic calligraphy.
Thanks for the support everyone! It’s been really encouraging and I will continue to share my progress!
4 year development.
1st row- I was at home for a awhile studying on my own. Frequently book stores and just sitting down and drawing everyday. Getting used to drawing 9+ hours a day and making it my new lifestyle.
2nd row- My school development. My 1st 6 month term at Watts Atelier went from barely being able to draw a head in 20 mins to doing a completed lay-in. 2nd 6 month term I pushed myself to finished renderings and started traditionally painting in gouache. The reason I’m learning how to drivety drive is so I can take classes on the weekend again.
3rd row- Painting studies really helped me push my rendering abilities. I switch between master studies to photo studies a lot. I want to start doing life studies though and making set ups to paint from.
Character Design related: I’ve never taken a character design class, but I been taking classes at other things I was weaker at for example sci-fi and environments. I been studying it for a year now taking classes with Kemp Remillard and Paul Christopher multiple times. I am now getting work solely for my sci-fi work and it has been really exciting. As well as listening to John Parks lectures over and over and doing exercises from it. I’m going to be moving onto environments pretty heavy handedly.
It’s been great!! I hope to continue growing and keep learning from my friends and fellow artists. I want to keep doing traditional on par with my digital and trek more deeply into gouache and doing plein air. I have around 6 projects that I am still working on and want to at least commit two to a finish before February. I want to try my hand at tutorials but topics like how to make a parallaxing background and how to set it up in Unity. Doing turn arounds and keeping all the measurements exact so your modelers don’t murder you for your misproportions. Trying to cover topics I don’t normally see.

Wow sorry for the crazy multiple uploads it kept telling me there was a Gateway Timeout and I took it as ” Hit submit furiously maybe something will happen”
Since it’s Inktober I figured I’d share some of my favorite inkers. This is just off the top of my head but trust me there are many more.
For those of you who are like me and end up designing and painting a lot of game logos this game is an amazing way to warm up before you start designing your type.
Thanks to my bad ass friend Brice Driver for recommending this to me. Miss you guys so much! I can’t wait to see you and Millie again!!
You can download this 3d model AND rig here
BTW seems FK controls are globally mirrored rather then locally. Picker UI is namespace sensitive, if you reference the rig then you have to put the whole namespace from the reference into the name slot at the top. Has a sticky lip deformer though :J
Enjoy!! If your not sure what to do with her to test her out, maybe see what http://www.11secondclub.com/ has going on. You can go through the archives and they still have the sound bites from previous competitions too. This winner is still my favorite one.
I don’t normally post up literary articles but I got a kick out of these two.
“Fuck, he thought, then shit. Also he thought the word cunt. Because he could think whatever he wanted, and what he wanted to think about was swears.”
““I’m trying to suggest that I’m sexually available,” she said. “But in a vague, plausibly deniable sort of way.””
The comments are pretty great too.
"Teach me to be bad, Dame Academy. I need to take Remedial Bitchiness, Beginning Femme Fatale, and Kissing to Kill, Overview and Strategies"
"Don’t forget Smolder Like an Ice Queen: The Seductive Art of Nonchalance. Early lessons include How Fast Is Too Fast (When He’s Lighting Your Cigarette); the final exam will consist of staring moodily out the rain-streaked window, while casting a come-hither glance with your shoulders. Extra credit will be given to any student who can communicate, with one perfectly-arched eyebrow, disdain, longing, and a tragic vulnerability hidden beneath a veneer of sophisticated ennui and enticing sexuality."
Edit how did I miss this one: http://the-toast.net/2013/11/15/empowered-female-heroine/
"“It’s Doctor, actually,” she smirked. The guys were totally shocked. They’d been talking about the doctor they were supposed to meet like it was some old guy, but it was her the whole time. “According to this scroll, all the prophecies are going to explode,” she explained. “Let me run some tests in my hacking lab. I’m a very important scientist.” She had so many abs, too. So many abs.”
