Sketch Pages 260-263

Every so often I start to hate drawing. There's so much riding on me getting better (self-respect, money, etc) that I get intimidated and angry. So I end up having to draw a couple pages to cleanse myself of negative thoughts. These pages don't have to look nice and I let go of all worry and just sketch stupid shit.
THe pages above are my Cleanse Pages.

And now I can do studies without rage again!

I've hit one of my dreaded art slumps again. It's so hard to draw right now.
At least I recognize what I am doing so I can fight it.

I feel so much better now. I didn't realize how tense I was getting while I didn't have time to draw anything!
The small sketches up top were timed 30 sec studies and the bigger drawings are a mixture of studies and drawing characters based on the thumbnails.
This was so relaxing

Elephant fly

Practicing my photoshoops. Man, photoshop is hard to master.
Boy oh boy, it intrigues and scares the crap out of me at the same time.
I should really do ps studies every day :I

I can almost draw again! yay!

Ah the school gauntlet is almost over. I've spent these previous weeks doing homework and preparing to lead a long class discussion with a friend.

That discussion has really preoccupied my time. Ya see, I-like many people- have a very hard time speaking in public. Well, I did it. It's over. Now I can stop stressing and go back to drawing.

Oddly enough, people say I'm a pretty good speaker. Little do they know that the entire time I'm speaking I am also trying not to black out. I hope I didn't let my co-speaker down.

Maybe I'm sharing too much info... but it's not like anyone reads this blog anyway hurr hurr :P

I'm working more on the elephant-like critter that I posted before.
This image turned out very Dr. Suess-y. I don't mind.

Sketch page 251 and website banner critter

I drew up a critter and then colored it using colored pencil and grayscale prisma markers.

And this guy is going to be on my professional website's banner.
Don't fullview him; boy is huge.
