Two things— If you follow this blog (thanks mom), then you know I enjoy drawing with colored leads. It stems from most comic artists that do their underdrawings…

Arrrr, me scanning be improving me arrrrrt

I don’t have a pre-scan to show on this one, thank goodness. This is the new level of rendering I’ve been doing, and the fact it’s scanning better…

Lil bunny foo-foo, not so much- in this non-life drawing

This is based on a cosplayer allyssooonnnn(?) but in her version she had bunny ears and a cotton tail. I dropped those. I’m sure it’s based on an…

The devil is in the details, even in life drawing

Here’s a vintage pic, but can’t remember who the actress is. This was another image that the scan settings really changed the final of. First is the original…

Non-life drawing is out at the ball game

It’s a Felony to be a victim of my (non)life drawing exercises

School is out for-ever!

It’s mid/late-September, is anyone still going to an actual school? If so, should they? Here’s another non-life drawing, based on a pic from a Japanese magazine. This one…
