More hand study rebloggin' because I SUCK at drawing hands.
the lecturer hands us these art blogs every now and then, and they’re really useful. Tangents are pretty easy to fall for, too! which sucks ‘cuz then it’d look weird and you’d have to re-do some stuffs or worse, re-do the composition of the whole image.
the rest & explanations in Chris Schweizer’s blog : http://curiousoldlibrary.blogspot.com.au/2011/10/schweizer-guide-to-spotting-tangents.html
John K’s blog is really good too (the guy who did Ren and Stimpy) : http://johnkstuff.blogspot.com.au/2006/06/animation-school-7-when-generic-is.html
Tangents are something I know I have a problem with as I have a hard time noticing them. This is pretty useful though and points out some tangents I never even thought about. These are things we usually overlook, so keep an eye out! Tangents everywhere!
Finished this little lunch doodle of myself in all my pudgy dragon glory. The proportions are all pretty accurate to life, I’m actually made of jell-o and wobble when you poke me in the tum-tum.

Oh my globsh *faints*
Lunchtime doodlin' from yesterday at work, felt like doing something self portrait like. So just a quick scribble of my pudgy dragon self in all my pudgy dragon glory!
During lunch at work I revisited this piece which has been waiting to be finished for far too long. (view the image full screen o get a better look.)
Here is the progress on the head so far, trying to rework all the points that were way off from before. The goofy facial expression has been fixed and I got the horns detailed out. The eyes still need some rework, but I touched them up a little for now.

[edit: you’ll what to click on the high res link to see this a little better, the preview image is on the small side.]
This will be the last progress shot I show for this piece before I upload the final…which is SO close to being done D: Hopefully this weekend I can refine the last effects and details and call it a day. I’m just too damn nitpicky…
Anyways, I wanted to show how the face evolved in this piece. The one on the left is the original thought I had for her…but something about it bugged me.
This is supposed to be more of a ‘Pin Up’ styled image so I wanted to give her lips more of that full pin-upy (real technical term there) look. Something more luscious and kissable. The face shape got reworked a little in the process as I realized her bone structure was all messed up…
But well, I am usually bad at painting full lips, but I feel like I nailed it this time around. I think the face still needs some work…repainting the nose kind of thru some stuff out of wack…but I’m just about done with that. I think if I mess with it anymore I’ll just make things worse.

Big Huge List of Some Amazing Women Artists!
I have been wanting to assemble a huge post of some of the amazing women artists out there, because it seems like too often they get overlooked when it comes to being honored and recognized. This year, I was incredibly honored to be nominated for a Hugo award in the Best Professional Artist category, but I was a little shocked to find out there hadn’t been another woman nominated in that category since Rowena Morrill in 1986. That’s more than a little ridiculous, considering there are so many women artists out there, they are all amazing, and they all need more visibility and recognition. I encourage you to browse through and visit their websites, and please reblog and add more artists to the list! I know this is NOWHERE near comprehensive and that are tons more artists out there.
(The tags got cut off; I guess there’s a limit now? As such I wasn’t able to tag every single artist included.)
Click the “read more” to check out the art! Warning: This list is HUGE, and very image intensive!
This list is pretty frelling amazing, take a look thru and check out all the brilliant lady artists out there! Being on the list is very humbling, especially being surrounded on all sides by so much skill D: (bluuuuush) And this is only a small portion of the amazing talent of women out there! Rock on ladies :D
This is a pretty basic one, but that doesn’t make it any less important to know! I hope it helps. …
My brother asked me to design a Batman tattoo for him…and silly me, I said I’d do it (his birthday is Nov.5th so I thought it’d make a great present).
Then I remembered, I SUCK at drawing guys D: especially comic buff men. (sigh) I at least had an idea in my head of what I wanted to draw design wise. So the other day I stock piled some Batman comic art references and today I went to town during lunch break.
This still has a lot of work to be done to call it finished (if my bro even likes it!). The bats were pulled from crappy Halloween stock on google, so I’ll need to go back and recreate them…but I just wanted something to give the idea of the effect I wanted.
Anyways…yea…comic book dudes suck (for being drawn) :( and I suck even more at drawing them!
