In the Woods

Here is the latest peice from my Life Drawing class. There are a few problems still in it, but I think when it's done it'll be really good. I fought over this one. The way the model was sitting, her legs were folded in an interesting form, but all the story was in her face and shoulders to me. I started out with a much smaller figure on the peice, but had to keep increasing the size. I'm going to add some more elements to the background, but I'm still trying to figure those out.

Sisyphus on a Good Day

Here is the drawing from class this Tuesday. I am planning on turning it into a painting. Hopefully it will get better in the process. I really need to go buy some more materials this weekend. I'm running into a wall with this gray pastel, I think it makes me try too hard for a sculptural look.

Not a charcoal artist. That being said, I was pretty happy with the way this sketch turned out from class last night.

Kicking an Ogre

Worked on this sketch before and during class last night. Started with the kicking form (Tae Kwon Do on the brain).

Birds Off a Wire

Got the idea for this sketch while driving home from work yesterday. There were several little birds on the wire, and they kept falling down to the ground like leaves. The way they moved was really cool, and although I know this didn't capture it, I wanted to try.

Floating Planet

Floating through space like a planet. In the warm glow of a distant star, the only way to travel. This sketch is really light, and didn't scan so well, I appologize. I love the idea of being in space, just in space, not a spaceship in space. I think that's the real goal of astronomy.
When I started this pose, it looked like someone falling. But, somehow it seemed to slow. That's what made me think of space. Enjoy.

Tree at Glassell

Did this sketch while waiting for class to start. The Glassell is such a big cool space, a tree would look good in proportion to it.

Votan - Lord of the Horizontal Drum

Here is Votan. Did you know? ... He was on Wikipedia today, and now he isn't Norse. Inbetween lines of code I was surfing a little and saw this article on Votan on Wikipedia. I thought the glyph looked like a cool template, and so designed this guy of it.

Tree Shadow

The tree looking at itself in my window, casts a shadow on my wall. Strange, I don't remember asking him in.
