FINALLY getting the minivan rolling here again.
FINALLY getting the minivan rolling here again.
Unfinished. The minivan part of “I live minivan cruisin’”
I don’t think I’m completely finished with this one but for now I think it’ll do. Ultimately, I think I’ll animate the shifting into drive.
I didn’t get my frame officially drawn today. I spent most of the time photoshopping the reference image. I should be able to finish it tomorrow
Tonight I tried to draw another screenshot from a movie. This one is from “Alien”. It started out fine enough but as I began to shade it with darker pencils, I had trouble creating a smooth gradations. I kept trying to fix it by moving on to darker pencils but eventually I ruined it. As […]
This evening it took me a while to figure out what to draw. Eventually, I found my way to the super neat gif tumblr “If We Don’t, Remember Me”. That’s where I found this screenshot from a film called “Mr Hulot’s Holiday”.
This evening I found a photo from Apocalypse Now and drew a small portion of it. I started this exercise as a 3 minute drawing attempt but then decided to spend more time on it afterwards.
A nice mellow monday back to work. I should have posted this one and all the Big Sur drawings this evening. Instead I decided to just keep shading this guy and not open the laptop.
Wednesday through Saturday of last week we spent camping in Big Sur. I’ve never been there but I had a great time. It was exactly what the doctor ordered. It was interesting to have gone from one of the busiest weeks ever to suddenly laying in a tent with nothing to do except for swim […]
Today, tuesday the 18th. Spent the day hanging with my daughter and then cleaning the house up for our trip tomorrow. Early tomorrow morning the family and I head up to Big Sur for a weekend of camping. I most likely won’t be posting my drawings for the rest of the week until Sunday evening. […]
Got a new sketch book today. I spent the day running errands and collecting stuff together for camping. I didn’t start drawing anything until it was much too late in the evening. My eyes were barely staying open while I drew these. You can tell my heart wasn’t in it. Just fulfilling a quota this […]
Fathers Day! Another beautiful day! Woke up early in the morning in a tent in the backyard with my daughter. I had a golfing date with my dad. It was a special occasion because my dad absolutely loves golf and this was really the first time I’ve ever played with him. It was a lot […]
First day of vacation! It was a beautiful day off. I picked up some camping supplies for Big Sur, including a tent. Friends came over to discuss the the trip. I built the tent in the backyard and Junebug and I camped out over night in it. I doodled these guys over beers with friends. […]
Well, I’ve done it again. I’ve let the drawings build up again and waited a week or so to post. This last week was unprecedentedly busy for me. Three sizzle pieces that I have been working on for the past few months now all delivered on the same day, last thursday. I perhaps got a total […]
I practiced my shading tonight. I focussed on my stroke and tried to keep it tapered and consistent. I’m pretty happy with the results. Possibly some of the best shading I’ve done yet.
This drawing is a recollection of an image I once saw hanging on the walls at Pixar. It is unfinished at the moment because I drew it with the urge to practice soft shading. At this point it is ready for the shading to begin.
My buddy Jared helped me a ton today figuring out how to customize this website. You need to check out his site, uprlip.com. He is doing a photo-series a day this year and his photography is absolutely beautiful! This drawing is based on his most recent post, Day 155 Not Now Not Never. My drawing […]
Monday. Today. Drawing actually drawn and posted on the same day! Wow, I’m so proud of myself. Anyways, turned out to be a pretty nice monday. Attended a retirement party for one of my clients. A great man and an influence on my editing career. He was a great supporter of me and he has […]
Saturday night I had a good conversation with my friend Wendy about drawing. I made mention of seeing those kinds of beautiful graphite drawings where the artist so delicately renders the shading that the image seems to glow. This drawing certainly doesn’t but I decided to draw this little shady box sunday afternoon while hanging […]
This was drawn late in the evening on Saturday the 1st. The same day that I posted my long “catch-up” post on the previous page. I spent a good portion of the day scanning and preparing all the pictures from the past but left only the last part of the day for my actual drawing […]
It’s been a while since I have posted! Whew! I am happy to say that I have done a bit of drawing each and every day since but I have let the posting duties completely fall by the wayside. And I’ve waited so long that the act of posting has snowballed into a much larger […]
