I have 100 views on my blog. Not bad for not having officially announced its existence these past few months :)

So I drew 5 pages of my first short comic, in blue pencil. I'm reworking the staging of the fifth page, which I'll probably need new photo reference for, but I'm glad I figured out it needed changing before I wasted any more time on the wrong thing ... Actually I'm basically scrapping everything I had for the fifth page and will DEFINITELY need to reshoot photo reference. SIGH. I think I'll just start with a fresh piece of board instead of erasing this whole page.

My perspective skills are still as poor as I remember they were in school. I was hoping they would have improved with time, as my line sensitivity has improved since graduation. My instructors likened the process of absorbing lesson material to a snake digesting a rat. Or something. It's supposed to mean, don't think about it, just swallow everything we say now and you might understand what we mean later once it's all come out on the other side.

It was actually true in some cases. So make of that what you will.

Blue pencil page in progress

P.S. Those are my friends in my photo reference. Aren't they great? YES THEY ARE

The only good thing about August are the Leos.

... the good Leos, anyway. I'm part Leo but you wouldn't know it.
Here are some sketches, wherein I discovered I love drawing people at shows.
Folks included in these sketches are: Bryce of Lakebed Recording, Roberto Miguel, and Star St. Germain.
