The only thing is...I don't know what I was trying to say with this, by deliberately not painting her in the pose she was in, by still stylizing the figure and adding the little arrows to the background. I just don't know; just decided I should stick them in. I also couldn't do justice to that gorgeous dress she had on that day; the yellowish panel had all kinds of intricate patterns on it, which I barely touched on with splatters of red.

I didn't enjoy the first one so much because...well, I think it looks weird. Just sayin'. The second one I'm loving alot more, I just have to finish little bits of it and then I'll post another picture of it. I'm finding more and more that I'm interested in drawing Latino/a's. Very NEW.

This is just a bit old, but it's still from this semester, so whatever. I love the band Crystal Castles, so when we were supposed to try a print-ad for some kind of product or service, I figured I'd promote their self-titled premiere album. Like so.
I've always loved doing cross-hatchings; they're really therapeutic. Unfortunately, I still have little bits to learn about doing it so that it also looks good in the end. This result was alright, but I lost will with Ethan Kath. Alice? No problamo, but I can't just choose the hot ones!

Ehhh, terrible picture of it, but this is a little watercolor I did in my sketchbook. It's a scene I've imagined of Uri fighting in the Warsaw Uprising. He's about to stab an SS Officer that raped and 'killed' his girlfriend. He's just pissed. It's not exactly how I wanted it to come out, but not bad either.
That's all I've got for the day.
I'm still working on some new stuff to scan in, should have at least one thing in here by tomorrow.
STAY IN SCHOOL, KIDDIES.

Sketchbook, first page. Was thinking about the Holocaust as I almost always do. I wanted to work on more trivial actions throughout one's day, and so here's a character taking a break, drinking a soda. His name is Uri, and he's a runaway, about fifteen years old. He takes care of orphaned boys.
Following on the same thought track, I drew a profile of Misha, one of the young boys Uri takes care of. He's probably like, 8 or 9 years old.
And another. Rabbi Goldflamm from 'THE WALL'. I don't know if I'm really into this book yet or not, but....I'm still giving it my time. It gets really interesting and then severely slows down. Then something suddenly happens to make it interesting again. It's like a pendulum of a book.
