Thanks to Jeff Matsuda for the cool desktop background! Awesome ......that's all I can say. Anywho, worked on faces again. Soon or a later I will get it down to a tee. I had a very busy day. I dug up my yard and put stepping stones down. I mowed my lawn. I cleaned the house. I bar-b-qued. (I made a london broil which I marinated all day! mmmmmmm) Now I should be able to draw for some time tomorrow during the day. Maybe I'll take the kids to the park and attempt to do some life drawing. I still don't think I'm fast enough, but I gotta do it soon or a later. I was gonna do it today while the kids were in the pool, but had to do some digging. Anyways, will try to post tomorrow. Till then....PEACE!!

Wishin I was better.....

I know I'm still learnin. I just want to eventually hang with the big time artists. (sigh) Someday. Oh to live the dream. My wife was kind enough to take the children and I to see "Cars". Frickin awesome!!! Some serious animation there. Man I want to make that stuff! I know, keep workin. I sketched alot tonight. Just kept getting the overwhelming feeling that I suck. Maybe I'm just in the dumps cause sometimes I wish it would just happen over night. Oh, the dream....heeheehee Oh well, all I can do is keep sketchin and learnin. Anywho, maybe tomorrow I'll feel better. Till next post.....PEACE!!!!

Weekend stuff...

Weekend wasn't too bad. I had a couple of projects done. I replaced our dining room chandelier and put a ceiling fan in my mom-in-law's room. I got some drawing in. Not happy with my sketches lately. I know I can do a lot better. Gonna keep sketchin even if it sucks! There's pics of last night's sketches. I was tryin to stick to face studying but was distracted. Oh well, Till next post....PEACE!!!!

Well, well, well....

It was a decent day today even though it rained and was hot. I finally got my van back! Woo-hoo! My friend went to her college (VCU) library and found Mastering Maya 7 for me. My wife actually hung a picture I bought. By the front door none the less. Woo-hoo for me!! The last pic was something I did tonight. I pulled it from a reference pic off the net. Think I just needed to get away from the quick sketches and draw something out. Who knows....maybe I'll color it in Photoshop. I'm almost done on that project a friend wanted me to do. I sent him the almost finished product and am waiting to hear his response. I hope that goes well. Only problem I have is that I haven't heard from A.M. Still waiting on that one. I know an answer is not coming soon, but I can always hope.:O) Anyways, gotsta sleep....till next post.....PEACE!! Oh, thanks for looking!!

Been awhile...

Sorry, I've been gettin my puter straightened out. AWESOME MACHINE!!!! Holy cow, it is a bad M.F. Here's a couple sketches I did. I've been getting severely frustrated the past couple of days. I was gonna go buy a new toy, but my dearest Mom got me a new book!! So far it's helping! Oh, the wireless optical mouse is new too. It's sweeeeeet! I didn't know how frustrating animation is. Much easier when you're having fun. I gotta always remember that. Haven't heard from A.M. yet and have come to the conclusion that I'll know when I find out. After reading my bro's blog from when he applied, I don't feel so bad. I hope I get in though. I hope I can make the cut. Normal worries. All I can do is try my hardest. heehee Boy, I can't wait!! More frustration....heeheee gotta love it. Anywho, till next post.......PEACE!!!

I got my animation puter......still waiting for the reply from A.M. heehee I will get back to postin soon. Right now I'm just transferring stuff from my old puter to this one. Anyways, gotta go......till next post....PEACE!!!!!

As you can see she loves my bed!!! Hopefully she'll sleep in it soon! I want my bed back!! heeheeheee Anyways, will get some sketchin in tonight and post it tomorrow. Till then......PEACE!!!!!

Thanks for all the comments...

I love when I get comments! Thanks all for lookin. Anyways, not much last night, just some quick sketches. I've been workin on a project and tryin to get it done as fast as possible. hehee So I can get back to worrying about when Animation Mentor will get back to me!:O) heehee I'm more relaxed about it now. Probably because it's been over a week. Oh well, they'll get back to me when they want. I have a lot to do today but will try to get some drawing time in with the kids. We'll see how that works. Anywho, till next post...........PEACE!!!!
