Sketchblog Edition 113: Do You Come From A Family Of Giants?

I'm trying to sketch more again,
just for fun.

Yes, I still have all the sketch requests I owe you kind folks from April,
but in the meantime, I'm taking it a little easy.

Enjoy these instead:

On Sunday evening at the SCAD Student Center,
a panel discussion on making films was given by four of the most amazing gentlemen on God's green earth:
Colin Levy
Nate Swinehart
Tyler Kupferer
Alex Curtis

The following two pages of sketches are my notes from said panel:

I can't help myself.
I love birds too much.
There's no way I can go without drawing at least one feathered spirit-like creature in my sketchbook.

Also, pose is inspired by a sketch I saw in the fabulous Jina Noh's sketchbook!

Here's more of Colin Levy!
A TAoCKF version:

...And a gender-bended version!

And if that's not enough awesome for you,
I'd just like to take this moment to plug one of my favorite people in the world,
Sarah "Squirrel" Desrosiers!
She is quite an amazing artist as well as a beautiful person,
and she, like I, is quite poor,
so she's opened herself to commissions!
Below is an example of a tattoo commission she did (image copyrighted to Sarah Desrosiers).
If you like that, visit her website for more artwork and more information:

That's all for tonight!
Love you all,
and goodnight!

Sketchblog Edition 111: Your Perfume

Well, I know it's been a while,
and I simply must apologize,
but I promise you it was worth the wait.
Without further ado,
and helping explain part of the reason why it took me so long to get this up,
the first part of my two-part uber-sketch-upload!
Yep. That's right.
I got hit by a car.
And I survived.
It was about three weeks ago this happened.
It was not fun,
but I am recovering just fine.
Tobi's damages were worse than mine, though.
He's currently in the shop,
waiting until I can get enough money to free him once more.
And I just got him fixed, too.... :/

Oh well!
Life goes on!

Have more emoticreatures!

Also, have some silly little storyboards for an animation I'm thinking of doing:

Here's a bird creature thing:

Here's a mutated version of Chad's dog,
The Doctor O_____O:

More emoticreatures!

Then this happened...
Another redesign of an old character,
the half-elf deliverygirl Haita:

I give you:
a mushroom wearing a top hat, a monocle and a moustache
(concept by Lauren and Tyler):

Random stuff:

*boot boot*

A couple of hats I was commissioned to make:

Some sketches of Emma,
from TAoCKF:

Randomian concept sketches:

This happened... for realsies:

Figure drawing, no reference:

A couple characters from a story I'm conceptualizing:

Ice cream baby, with cone diaper, and cats:

This just came to me while listening to some music.
I really want to animate it. :)

Oh hey, here's a quick motorcycle design sketch:

If you haven't experienced NYANCat,
now's the time.
My friend Chad and I went up to Chicago and played the song a couple times back and forth.

Also, I realized recently that there are no females in my catverse.
So here's Winifred, the latest addition.
She's Wallace the Lazy Cat's cousin, a saucy cat indeed:

And now for some guest sketches!

These next few were drawn by (I believe) my dear friend Jen Cram:

I think here we have Lauren's handiwork.
You can see her delightful portrait of Lane:

And more from Jen C!

And suddenly, out of nowhere,
a speedpaint of my Lauren:

Thus ends the end of the mega-upload part 1!

Thanks for your patience,
and your continued reading!

Love you all,
have a good night,
and look forward to part 2 of the upload tomorrow! ;)
