Sketchblog Edition 116: The World Is Trembling

Hello again, loyal friends!
I'm so incredibly sorry about the gaps between posts.
They seem to be growing each time, don't they?
I have a reason for that, but I won't give it to you because it doesn't matter.
What matters is I haven't been loyal enough to you.
I managed to take the time to scan some sketches and will now upload them here for your viewing pleasure.
Unfortunately I didn't get to the (two) free sketch requests for October, but don't worry,
I haven't forgotten about them!

In the meantime, here are some random sketches for you!

Lately I've been conceptualizing the direction I want to take my comic in,
and what parts are important enough to keep and how to execute them.
Here's a sneak peek at what you might see in the distant future from TAoCKF.

Another activity I've been getting into more is dancing.
My lovely and talented roommates, Lauren Duda and Bridget Underwood,
try to go to Swing Dance Club every weekend,
so I've been trying to take part and finally learn to dance.
I admit, I've always been self-conscious about myself and the way I look,
and dancing is an especially frightening thing to me.
I constantly wonder if I look like an absolute fool to others around me when I dance,
so this is helping me get over that a lot.
Here we see Lauren and Bridget, as well as my good friend Michael Raineri, relaxing after a long night of Swing.

Here's that little Lepuline/Derpshark creature I drew a while back.
I want to do something with him, but I'm not sure what exactly.
Maybe some short strips or something....
Still working on his design too.

One great thing about living with Lauren and Bridget is the amount of awesomeness that happens in the house.
This happened recently....
Friendly modelling session, with costumes, props, dancing, and music.
My friends Michael, Drew, and Josh also participated.
One of the best things ever, so I'm hoping it'll happen again soon. :)

I also got to use some of these wonderful poses as reference for some commission work,
which I'll upload soon as well. :)

Finally, have some Emma Evans!

Well, that's all!
Sorry I don't have more, but hopefully after all this thesis business is finished,
you'll be flooded by sketches and artwork! :)

Thanks, as always, for reading!

Love you all,
and goodnight!
