Life Drawing. . . Again

So, I sadly realized that it's been a year since the last time I made it to a life drawing class. Things were so crazy last year that an entire year of my time slipped away from me! Not that things aren't crazy this year as well, but I took the time to finally go to life drawing. I was so rusty, but I like this one.

My boss keeps stressing "story" like trying to express story, or find story in everything. I guess with this one, I thought of a lonly little sailor girl, who was stood up by her date or something. Although it's probably more like a stripper who's had a bad night and is pouting because she didn't get any tips.

Anyway, YAY! Life drawing. I'm promising myself I'm going to go every week during my breaks. Lets see if I can keep that promise to myself. ;)

Ultrasupermega Nerd

So,the job has been an intense learning experience so far. Things are going well, at least I think they are. :) (I'm not fired yet, so that's GREAT sign.)

Anyway, after 16 hours of drawing circles (I wish I could say I'm kidding, but I'm not) I think I've achieved a higher level of being in the universe. It was kinda like drawing meditation and water drop torture at the same time. Either way I've come out of it a changed person. :D

After my circle drills, I was finally able to move onto developing a shorthand version of the characters for storyboards. I know, you're probably thinking, but it's "SOUTH PARK!! There's nothing to it!! Lets just say I'm retarded and leave it at that. On many levels. (Especially the level in which I felt an undying need to POST my retarded shorthand characters.) In time, I'll be able to draw them with my eye's closed just like the rest of the guys!
