So it's obvious I have not kept up with this.  I don't necessarily find it to be a bad thing or a failure.  I'm currently shepherding 2 animated films through production.  I'm busier than I've ever been before!!  Time just isn't on my side for this project.  I can admit this didn't work out but taking care of all the things needed for animation is what has stopped me.  I'm doing what I love so I'm very happy!!  

I'll be moving some of the art from this blog to my primary blog "Scribbles in Blue" soon.  I'll try this again in another 4 years maybe.  :)  I have lots of new art that I will try and upload soon!  Even though I have not been able to post doesn't mean I have stopped sketching by any means!  

In the meantime I have to say this blog kept me extra motivated to constantly sketch and create art!  I recommend keeping a daily art blog to anyone wanting to improve!  It's really difficult to update everyday so I truly admire people who can do it!

Thanks to everyone who has viewed!!

sketch 32

Morning Bath. 

sketch 31

I love this girl's glasses!  I want to know where she got them but then again I don't think they'd look very good on me.  They work very well for her though.

sketch 30

A whole page full of goodness!!  I still paid attention in class I swear! 

sketch 29

Random Mouse.

sketch 28

Someone asked me why she was naked to which I in turn asked them, "why do you need clothes when dancing with a skeleton?"  That person walked away confused.  Mission accomplished.  Ha!

Sketch 27

A 3 Parter!

Started with a rough outline.

Added the details. 

Finally hit it with some markers that started to dry out unfortunately.

sketch 24

Well, it's obvious he made some sort of a decision.  Not quite sure what inspired this, but hey who doesn't love an ex-angel with a gun?  It's the stuff comic books are made of.

sketch 23

Ice blue...(fig study again).  I'm starting to have more fun with color these days.

Sketch 17

Fig Study, ru-ru-rusty...

Sketch 16


Sketch 15

Caught her when she wasn't looking.  Mwuhaha! :)

Sketch 14

Another Beth inspired sketch.  I couldn't quite get a real caricature whenever I tried but this has the same fun quality she does.


Sketch 13

From one of the many, many meetings.

Sketch 12

Lovely little sketch inspired by Beth.

Sketch 11

Marian, aka: the quiet riot!!

Sketch 10

Yoshimi lookin' perrrrdy. :)

sketch 9


Sketch 8

I imagine they were a dancer...when they were alive.

Sketch 7 in Lizzie Mcguire she would say.  :)

Sketch 6

Dave, our awesome mentor while in Cali, though I don't think he liked being called a mentor.  Either way he's a super cool and talented guy!  Thanks Dave! 


Sketch 5

Ahh! Back from my trip to Cali!!  I was busy as all get up but I sketched like a mad woman while I was there.  I'm not gonna be too hard on myself for posting these late. I sketched a TON of stuff but was a little too busy to post.  Most of these next sketches on lined paper are from my notes during class.  I love sketching in my notes, it makes looking back at them fun!

This reminds me of The Skeleton Dance, which happens to be my favorite animated short of all time!

Sketch 2

Not completely happy with this but thats not the point of this I guess. I got a few Loomis books for Christmas. And while his draftsmanship is something that should be adored, it's hard to feel good about your own skills while flipping through the pages. I've come a long way though and hopefully will grow with each and every post.

sketch 1

Day one, sketch one.  Finished it a second ago.  I didn't like the pen I used, it's too inky, but it was the only thing I could find close.  I'm still going through an abstract phase I guess.  Anyway this starts it all off.  So here's to a leap years bounty of drawing!!
