A NEW YEAR!

A quick color study in Lifedrawing class. I think it was 20 or 30 minutes.

Another color study. 20 minutes. Thankfully my Lifedrawing teacher lets me use my tabletPC in class ;)


Lastly, one more color study. The drawing kinda sucks, but I really like how my color selection turned out.


My first crack at Artrage 3, which everyone should go out and buy immediately...This one is a quickie while drawing at the ROM. I didn't get to finish it cause security made me unplug my laptop as it was a "fire hazard"...


A fun lifedrawing assignment I had last semester. We had to take 5 poses from an extra lifedrawing drawing session and draw any character in those same poses. I picked Akuma from Street Fighter.

An inclass life drawing exercise in shadow/light and contrast. The structure is off in a few places but I'm still pleased with how the values came out.
