Somebody Stop Me!

Okay so first weekend is up and my first piece is below. Took me about 9 hours. It's a drawing I started over a year ago. I'm gonna tie up all my loose ends like this first, as a way of getting into doing finished renderings.

Additionally, I've got life drawing from saturday (decided to do my 20 mins in colour from now on) and studies from this morning. I decided to revisit my Scott Robertson DVD's and render some planar shapes from imagination. The second one is a work in progress that was too complicated for me to figure out today. By the end of the week, I think i'll move to curved surfaces.

Too lazy to post.

Now I have half an hour and now you get all the studies I've done since the last post. Roughly chronological. Roughly 1 hr each. Roughly every day. Tonight I'm going to life drawing and doing a portfolio piece afterwards. Since I can't finish my film by the end of the summer, I'm just going to dedicate one day a week for a character or environment, which will benefit from all the daily studies and animation I will be doing. Life is good.

Introducing: The Red Knives!

Every day from now till the end of the summer, I rock the studies. And since the Crimson Daggers aren't really going, I'm gonna start my own cheap knock-off stream - the Red Knives. Please watch and participate, every day at noon EST.

These are from the last two days. I'm still trying to render accurately and failing a little.

Never Enough

There are never enough hours in a day. Or maybe there is just too much internet and errands. I should either get a secretary or become a monk. I'll make the choice when I start my own animation company.

I took two days to pick my monitor, and then several more hours to pick a calibrator. I probably made the wrong choice, but it probably won't make any difference at all. For the record, it's the HP ZR24W with Spyder3Elite. Next week will be a good week.

Life drawings from last saturday. The model was fantastic. It's my life painting anniversary soon, so I'm trying to ease my way back into colour. Maybe we shall see some improvement? Question mark?

Watching Movies, Do Not Disturb

I woke up at 8 am today, which is an hour earlier than I was supposed to. So here's an arm. I may post some designs for my movie if I ever get to them, but until June 14th all I'll be doing is watching my free netflix. And life drawing.
