So, I just realized that I never made a post about my favorite Christmas present I got! So here's a special treat for I'll post a picture of myself with it! Now you'll get to see what I look like. (On Christmas day, with no make-up) Don't laugh too hard okay? This were taken a while go (on Christmas)with my webcam, with nasty lighting (it's horrible quality)...so yeah....enjoy!

Some help, please?

So, I've been really bummed about my ability to draw humans lately. I was wondering if any of you have/know of good anatomy references/books/websites/links, whatever, that you think would be useful to me. I don't particularly like looking at nude people, so if they're clothed, even if it's just underwear, that would be awesome! I have been looking for good references for a while, but the more I have the better!

Thanks a bunch guys!


Cardboard Pirate

So I'm walking home, taking a shortcut through my university's Fine Arts building and when I turn the corner I run into this thing. Scared the crap out of me. Why? Well I wasn't expecting a huge cardboard pirate to be around the corner. No it's not really scary, just unexpected, and to be honest it's actually pretty cool right?
