Was over analyzing life last night and couldn't focus, so these are worse than ever.

Also got in another hour on this thing. Not a lot, but I can almost see the home stretch!

Yesterday was a day of screwing around, I guess.

More gestures, and then slapping color on a sketch from earlier. WHY? Because I can.

Well, lot's of stuff to make up for yesterday's silence.

Had my tablet with me at work so, two speed paintings. Trying to ease myself into more urban subject matter. I can do natural environments pretty well, but man made stuff is still a bit blah.

So a scene at an outdoor mall and a bit of rainy highway, from photographs found online.

(I love the stupid car blobs you have no idea. lol)

Also did some more gestures with posemaniacs (still suck at it). I think they're a bit better but I was distracted last night by the fact that the colored sharpies smell worse than the black ones could possibly ever hope to achieve.

Then did some work on my blood elf. Not a lot - was distracted often by my boyfriend's StarCraft II campaign next to me. But worked on fixing her dislocated leg and tried to get some work in on the foreground.

So for you today is some posemaniacs and a partial cleanup of that last panel. Don't really like the focal point. Will fix in photoshop I think.

Did some sketching that again, I can't scan til monday.

Also started work on a new vector image.... that I'd like to use as sort of a logo. We'll see. The color isn't anywhere cloe to done, just screwing around.

Did some posemaniacs last night but no really access to a scanner atm so those will wait for monday.

Did some cleanup and color and layout on a comic page yayyyy.

Today we start off with a really bad city scribble. Oh well.

I've found a group of artists that have been really good for my productivity. Yesterday they introduced me to, which has a collection of 3d renders of the human muscle system in a variety of poses. There's even a simple flash tool that displays a random assortment for 30 seconds each, which is the closest I've gotten to gesture drawings in years.

I'm not very good at it, but got a bit better after about 20 minutes. I don't really value gesture drawings so yeah, I drew on top of everything XD This really loosened up my hand though, which made for a really enjoyable night of drawing in pencil (my back was really hurting, so I couldn't comfortably work at the computer last night).

I think I've managed to order these as I did them. Not sure.

I 'refined' the lines for 0-6 of Breakaway, so now they has clothes. These will probably be cleaned and ordered over the weekend. I tried, once, to draw the comic panels as my thumbnails laid it out. I can't. I hate it. They look terrible. So they're all individual drawings that get pasted together.

That's only half the page though, the other half (and the beginnings of the next page) got sketched last night. Rumors that I had to resort to images of raptor jesus to figure out how to draw the foot are exaggerated. Also for the first time I'm like, excited about this thing instead of guilty. After these two pages of NOT VERY GOOD PLOT I get to start having fun with my own characters.

Eep! And then I was like 'Wait I was supposed to do study stuff tonight' and did some work out of my foreshortening atlas. Because I still fail at male legs.

Hope this post wasn't too big? I tried to make sure it would break any layouts.

I got back to this for the first time in a while, and can spot a lot of problems. But the cool thing about photoshop is I can fix 'em :D

Also I've tried to sketch this page like 5 times now and this is the first it's come out about how I want it. Which is awesome, maybe I can get it done next week.
