One of the thing that irks me about the school year is how little time it leaves me to use the computer for art. On the one hand, because I take a bus that 90% of the time gets stuck in traffic, I have a practically guaranteed drawing session every day. On the other, if any of those drawings requires a little touch up in the computer to be finished (say, to add color), it most likely never will be finished.
The above characters, for instance, are from Rick Griffin's Housepets! But you can't really tell that without the colors, can you?
I've tried to keep myself active, making art; so what I've ended up doing is drawing Susan, a character with which I'm running the experiment of build her life, from birth, with no idea where she's headed.
This does not mean I was not able to actually finish anything. I think I did a rather good job with the shading of that last one.
I have also still had those insane pieces of art that just come to me, and so help me, my mind doesn't let me rest rest for days until it gets down on paper. I do have to wonder how I keep coming with poses so alien to me, I don't even know if I can do them until they're done. So, on that note, I leave you with one that has been lauded for its adorableness.
