It’s bittersweet to look back and see my year as clearly as I can. On one hand, it’s really nice to have a catalog of sketchbooks demonstrating a journey of understanding the human figure. I practically dedicated the year to anatomy and gesture drawing. Not much else. There was a lot of form and line study along the way, but every time I go through a sketchbook right now it’s all about the gesture and the human figure. So right away, I know I need to do something different. I believe I’m going to begin with making this year about environments and perspective as this is now my weakest area of skill and understanding. I’ll try to post each day, but I’ve learned it’s more important that I do art every single day even if I don’t post all of it.

I would love to hear your feedback. If you followed this blog this year, Thank you. Sincerely.

Even if you didn’t participate directly in discussion on my post, I cherished each of you who chose to follow my humble little blog. I’d love to hear from you. What did you think about how this year turned out?



Drawing Challenge : Grillex, Warhammer Guy in a speedo, and Neil Patrick Harris Fighting a Dragon.

For the past few days, we’ve been getting more and more brave with our drawing sessions. We, being my wife, a student, and a few others that hangout with us while we draw and learn to be better artists. We’ve been assigning random concepts to each other and then allowing 15 minutes to gather reference,...

Graphite: Skrillex as Grillmaster

Graphite: Skrillex as Grillmaster

For the past few days, we’ve been getting more and more brave with our drawing sessions. We, being my wife, a student, and a few others that hangout with us while we draw and learn to be better artists. We’ve been assigning random concepts to each other and then allowing 15 minutes to gather reference, plan, and execute a drawing on the topic.

Grillex is: Skrillex as a Grill Master and was a really fun piece to work on. I used all that I’ve learned about gesture and a reference photo of Skrillex to compose the scene. All in all for a very fast concept and execution, I’m pretty proud of it. Although I did realize too late that the Hot Dogs, whose grill marks are actually derived from Skrillex’ logo, look humongous and thus people have said they resemble baguettes.

Graphite: Warhammer guy in Speedo

This dude was pretty fun to work on because it was such a silly concept. The original challenge I was given was “Draw a Warhammer guy in a speedo by the pool.” I wen a bit further and drew the classic Sports Illustrated lady in the water pose with a Warhammer chap as our model. This piece took all of 15 minutes and was really fun and made me more confident because I drew it out thinking only in gesture and form and then using reference to actaully make the armor elements fit the pose.

NPH vs Durgon

Graphite: Neil Patrick Harris fighting a dragon.

Finally, It’s no secret that Neil Patrick Harris is one laid back, cool dude. So when I was issued the challenge of drawing NPH fighting a dragon, I said “Challenge Accepted” and instantly knew that this was simply the best way to demonstrate his suave and play-it-cool attitude. Using a photo of Neil sipping a margarita and some additional gesture imagination, I executed the above with nothing but giggles and joy. The dragon was thrown on in the last three minutes since I wanted NPH’s nonchalant attitude to be more readily conveyed.

Your Turn: What are some silly concept ideas you’ve drawn or would like to see drawn by me? Share your thoughts in the comments.

Last Page of sketchbook. 11 minute pose study.

While I haven’t really been active on this blog, it’s not to say I haven’t been active with art. I’ve been maintaining my figure, gesture, and general life drawing studies. I’ve also been studying line quality and developing my ability to thumbnail ideas instead of spending massive amounts of time on one image only to realize it wasn’t the best idea.

The last month has been crazy. I wrapped 3 professional projects that will be turned into products and I’ve completed a 100 page sketchbook that I started in mid- September.

Quick stats on my sketchbook:

Size: 11 x 14
Started: 9/13/2014
Finished: 11/5/2014
Total figures in sketchbook: 1580
Total time spent drawing figures only: 30.47 hours

I hope to be posting things here more regularly now as I am venturing out from the comfort of gesture drawing and starting to create my own poses and character ideas.

Fast and Furious – Day 2

I wanted to see if my gesture drawing practice would come in handy to plan out a quick scene. This was fun, but I definitely need to keep practicing my anatomy.

Lonely Forest – Day 1

Well I failed. Sort of…

My goal was 365 days straight of art being dedicated to getting better as a Fantasy Artist. I was on a roll. Not only was I on a roll, but I lasted for 173 days.

My goal was 365 consecutive days of art being dedicated to getting better as a Fantasy Artist. I was on a roll. Not only was I on a roll, but I lasted for 173 days. Including the 100 day anatomy challenge on conceptart.org and 2 levels of certificates of gesture drawing on quickposes.com and other private corporate projects, I definitely had a lot going for me.

I was kicking ASS! Man, I was pumped! I was creating art every day, I was inspiring others to make art every day, and I was advancing at a very noticeable pace. Then my mother took ill, she ended up in a Hospital and I dropped everything to go and be with her. I had my art supplies with me and I truly wanted to work on it while I was there, and actively sought opportunities, but it just wasn’t possible. Nine sleepless and highly emotional nights between the ICU and another ward sapped every ounce of energy and creativity I possibly had.

It was depressing and I’m depressed now because I got back from that trip ready to work, and eager to make art, but I just couldn’t. Between my level of exhaustion and the guilt that I felt for having let this goal slip, I just dropped everything and slept. I slept and slept and slept. Anyway, while this sounds dramatic and like it could be the end, but it’s not

I am planning on relaunching my 365 goal as of the first of August and intend to see it through. 

I might have failed my initial goal, but I succeeded at so many other things.

P.S. I’m Trying something new. The TLDR (Too Long Didn’t Read) version of this post appears in bold throughout the text. Share your thoughts on whether this made the post more accessible or more annoying.
