Resolutions

As Bobby Chiu put it, it's very important to figure out a strategy for 2011. In my efforts to do so, I've been trying to figure out a lot of introspective questions. Sort of like the influence map on DA, but broader.

Chasing that perfect studio is like chasing a perfect girl - if she actually wants you, you start to wonder if perhaps you can do better. The drama of uncertainty is what keeps the pursuit going.

I'm getting close to the point where my art will need more than just foundation to be good. Things I've been working on recently:
  • Values:
    • Making things read
    • Form rendering
  • Drawing:
    • Double foreshortening
    • Twisting forms
    • Big shape relationships
    • Flow
    • Grasping the air
Continuing with these themes, here are some duels, and prep sketches for upcoming personal illustrations.
