I have to say that figure drawing was probably the most fun, in general, out of all the classes in the C. Because it was a wonderful thing to realize just how fast I was starting to get, and how your thought process evolves when you are thinking about what kind of image it is going to be when the session is over. Somewhere along the lines it stops being a homework assignment and you decide to make it what it is : something you make, which has, ultimately, more integrity than a "homework" piece would feel like. I think that is what separates the people who drudge along and the people who really start to twist it around for the better. All in all, I'll miss life drawing, not sure when i'll get the chance to do it again.

So, I had 30 minutes to myself and sketched up a very on-the-spot sketch of a transformer. Because, I mean, there ain't nothing cooler than a Transformer, honestly; except maybe a kitten with gargantuan eyeballs. On another note, I uploaded two new videos of likewise quick sketches. Watch them and star the hell out of me.
No joke - i'm in a choke-hold of work right now on behalf of CCAD's infamous senior semester, we've got Directions coming up and the ribbon on my college school is going to be cut in a few weeks 3:
On a good note, it's been a phenomenally good few days. * Can't really say much now, but I can throw up a few uploads of the work I did for the 2009 Hasbro Toy competition. I didn't place in the sculpting 5...buuuuut.....well, i'll just leave it at that ;3. As far as the book goes, I mean, it could have been alot better, but overall, i'm satisfied with how it printed. If anyone who didn't get picked is reading this, don't feel bad. Like, 80% of the toys in there were awesome, and the remaining percent were no joke amazing, coming from someone who never sculpts, I'm sure it doesn't mean much - but honestly, the toys that were busted out looked so awesome. I put in so much work on my guy but...well, he kinda fell short of the competition. But, in the end, well, let's just say, he did his job : he was there to support the artwork. X3 x3 oh lolol

Posting it before I forget and wander off into the workload.
This is the only video of the three without a commentary, but probably the weakest in terms of subject matter and content. I just wanted a "snappy" music video.
Lots of old sketches for nostalgia's sake,
the last four are from freshman year;
I really do believe those were my best
"drawin" years, I had the clearest mind
in terms of what I wanted out of myself
and what I wanted out of the world.
In other news, I made and ordered my first printed art book today for all of the stuff done for G.I. Joe : New Joes! 34 pages of stuff, so i'm pretty excited to see what that looks like after it comes out of the presses. Been blogging alot as of late...it floors me how many of us are out there, making things, every day, and will be 'til the end of our days. It's 6:49AM, and no sign of stopping so far. I'll upload the third video i've made for the boys over at Hasbro for you guys to enjoy, but the rest will have to come after they stop down in Columbus.
Rooting for you while you root for me.

I had overheard a few folks talking about a weapon design contest
over at Insomniac™ Games, so I had to gorge myself on it.
Unfortunately, forgetting to read one line of the rules that
specifically stated: "Avoid fine details", I'm hoping they
mean for the gun, lol. In which case, all the schematic
stuff I have around it will have them tossing it in
the trash in no time.
Other than that, Insomniac™ is a great publisher,
their titles have always had that cartoony flair that
attracts more coming-of-age adults rather than
teenagers. Come to think of it, I never realized
how much fun I really had on Sly Cooper, Spyro,
and R&C. Good tizzimes.
