I really need to update more often.

I know a lot of people don't visit my blog, but that shouldn't have anything to do with the amount of updates I provide. I know once my artwork gets better I'll probably have more people looking. Having more stuff on here is also a way to keep myself motivated. So I'll keep trying to update. I don't want to be one of those guys that never updates their blog.

Anyways, here is some stuff I've been working on. I'm taking an advanced perspective class at my school right now. It's really helped simplify a lot of things, since the whole idea behind the class is to put composition first and then plotting second. It's designed to get pieces done quick...although I admit I'm a slow worker still. In any case, here are a few pieces I did with the themes of Samurai, Geisha, and Noah's Ark. All were pencil drawings that I darkened up/cleaned up in Photoshop. Some stuff I'm okay with, but a lot of it I'm a little disappointed with. I think my biggest need is still an improvement of anatomy. I think by knowing everything a lot better in my mind, I won't
have to sketch something out as much and erase...and my drawings won't look overworked, which I hate. Remembering certain things about perspective is a must as well...such as how tall a person is if they're on a certain building compared to the ground or how big a compartment should be if you see a man leaning out a window. Hopefully this is all resolved with repetitive practice.
