Suzie q's

Finally had some time to finish watching apocalypse now (the redux version is about 3 1/2 hrs). I was inspired to draw some foxy ladies after watching the R&R scene (where the playboy bunnies dance)

light show

Here is a quick sketch I made yesterday when I took my brother to school. I walked out and the sky and the air had a red glow....its ridiculous how red/orange it was...it looked very post-apocalyptic. 


It got me thinking about this music video


its definitely one of my favorite Pink Floyd songs! :)

I've got title block... :-/

I just came to a realization literally a couple of minutes ago so I felt the need to post about it. For the past couple of weeks I've been forcing myself to sketch traditionally....so I haven't touched photoshop other than to color. I did this because I felt that my work was becoming all digital (all the work I did last semester was digital, even my sketches) and when I tried to sketch traditionally once the semester was over, it was like I had to relearn how to do it and it was mostly all bad. However,since sketching traditionally, I felt that I've already learned what I lost and some new things too. Tonight, while working on an illustration, I got stumped and couldn't get the right look for the main figure no matter how hard I tried. On a fluke, I used sketchbook pro and got the figures' face in one try and I realized that I physically draw differently while using my tablet.... I realize that this is probably very obvious to others but I wasn't thinking about it. I think what helped me was taking such a long break from using my tablet. From now on, I going to try embrace these two ways of doing things and hopefully my work will benefit.! :)

Now that I'm done talking.... I figured I might as well show you the sketch, as well as the traditional ones.

moleskine...how I've missed you!

Here are some sketches I drew during the rose parade/bandfest, which I then painted in photoshop.

Rose Parade 2012


my brothers' in red







 Here are some pics from Bandfest (an event where all the bands in the parade get together and perform their respective field shows) and the rose parade. The rose parade was great...a lot of people and colors. Seeing the floats in person was awesome...looking at all the details and colors was very rewarding and inspiring.
