Mo faces......

Boy, I'm stubborn!! I just can't stop sketchin faces. Must conquer it. I know there are a lot of other things I need to work on, and I will get to them soon. Next is positions......hmmmmm. Mass and balance.....what have I got myself into? heehee School is slowly creeping up and the closer it gets the more I think about how much I have to learn. My brain is gonna be toast!! Can't wait! Tonight I saw a lot of improvement but not enough to make me feel satisfied. I don't think I'll ever be happy about how I draw. All I can do is learn and occassionally look back at old stuff and laugh. Sounds fun!! heeehee;O) Anyways, till next post......PEACE!!!!
P.S. Animation Mentor here I come!!!!!!! WOO-HOO!!!!

Edit from yesterday....

It wouldn't let me post again yesterday. ARRGGGHH!!! So here are the last sketches from last night. I will try to post again tonight depending on what I get done. Till then.....PEACE!!!!

quick sketches from tonight...

Edit II: Sketches from today. As I was searchin thru artist today I found tv show I used to watch growing up.......Battle Of The Planets (or Gatchaman). Man it was a cartoon I forgot about! I look forward to seeing some old episodes...with due time and money. heehee New inspiration!!! Also drew a little character...just messin around. Anyways, will try to get more done later!;O)
Quick edit: Quick sketches from tonight. Not much....but some!;O)

Some quick stuff. I know.... not much, but even a little bit at this point helps in the learning process. I found a cool Ben Caldwell site...will add it to my cool links sometime. Depends on when I stop being so lazy!;O) Also added a pic of me while I surfed the web looking for references.;O) Of course I shaved the beard I had off. I was starting to feel like a bum. I think it actually helped me feel more comfortable drawing. It doesn't make sense to me either! Anyways, will try to post again soon. Figuring as I don't have to work this weekend, it shouldn't be a problem. Woo-hoo!!! Till next post............PEACE!!!!

EDIT: sketches I did tonight. Not the greatest stuff but I sense a break through comin my way. I hope I'm right. So many mistakes.....but at least I'm seeing them way clearer. Don't know if that's a good thing or a bad one. ;O) Hands shake constantly.....but I know I'm winning the nicotine battle. Soon that'll be behind me. Anyways, tomorrow I'll get back to it. Till then.......PEACE!!!!

Tryin to post some pics.......won't upload for some reason!! ARRRGGGGGHHH!!! Will try to edit this post later. it. Here's more stuff to motivate me. I will draw some tonight and post it later. Hopefully this slump will come to an end. ---PEACE----

tonight's quick sketches..

Just messin around tonight. Tryin to get some sketchin in before I go back to work this weekend. I don't know which is suckin the life outta me more......the kids or the trip to work on the weekends. Maybe it's just age catchin up with me. ;O) It rained a lot today. Kind of a depressing day. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better one and get me out of this poopy mood I'm in. School starts Sept seems like such a long ways away! I've been looking thru the Animation Mentor student blogs and I must say that I am really intimidated. I hope I have what it takes. Anyways, kids are in bed and I'm feeling quite lazy! Time to relax! A stay at home dad's job is never done!;O) Till next post (hopefully tomorrow)........PEACE!!!!

Yeah....I'm frustrated!! I know I need to get back into the swing of things. This post is dedicated tou things that motivate me and things that drive me up a wall. First....motivation. My family....of course there is only a pic of my son, but it's my whole family that helps me. Then of course there's my last dumb purchase before becoming a family man. I need more pics of stuff that makes me happy....I know.
Now for things that get to me. The mansion I pass on my 2 hour trip on Saturday mornings to work. I'd hate to see how much that house costs if the million dollar homes are 1/4 the size!! Then there's folding boxes at work. Yes I folded all those damn things!! I know it's a paycheck. Last but not in a drawing rut!!! heeheee I was drawing a pic of a friends son and it just wasn't workin for me. Too much on my mind I guess. Good thing is I haven't smoked a cigarette!! woo-hoo!! I don't plan on ever smoking a cigarette again....I'm done! There still are urges but they are getting much weaker. heehee A little over a month and school starts.....I'm scared. I hope I can hang with the big dogs. I guess I'll find out soon! Anyways, gotta go relax.....the weekend was a rough one. Till next post....PEACE!!!!!

I didn't use any reference tonight.....noticed I'm a little bit better but still have 8 million things to learn. Man it never ends!!! heehee I used color pencils again....for some reason it makes me feel more relaxed. Might stick to it. Anyways, gotta work this weekend....again. Oh well, what can I do. Anywho....till next post......PEACE!!!!!
