I love how you capture that goofiness, craziness, humorously graceful and, I'll admit it, lazy personality of cats in this photo. The c...

Welcome to my lair!

Well, my virtual lair, anyway, where I post my creative exploits, experiments and many unfinished projects. Most commonly, you will see traditional sketches, portraits and landscapes, and well as prose writing. I've got art/writings based in horror, sci-fi, fantasy, historical periods, wildlife, something for almost everyone really. I am truly a jack of all trades, dabbling in everything, mastering none of them. But that's okay so long as I can have a bit of fun!

By the way, in that photo up there, I'm the one in the white hat, not the famous actor. Just so there's no confusion! :D

Thanks for stopping by!

Interests
So, in the spirit of trying new ways to write stories (more details in the previous journal, but the short version is character-driven, not plot or world-driven) I am trying a new style for character sketches and studies in the visual art realm. It's been years since I have drawn in the anime/manga style, so that is how my drawings and illustrations will be.

I just bought a drawing tutorial book for manga, since it is an established art style. There'll be much practice getting the technique down before I move on to character concepts. It will still be a while before I can get those up with great quality. My printer works, well it copies anyway, but I lost the driver disk three moves ago, and the site to download the correct driver won't pull up properly. Being that I have to travel to find interwebs that will actually play nice with my laptop, this makes things... fun. We'll say fun.

What will make this change so interesting for me is that it has been a long time since I've broken down art into such basic components. I'll get a chance to relearn proportions, poses, depth, even shading and coloring. It's a bit humbling to realize that I had to buy a "For Beginners" book to begin this. But! Not to worry! I'm not so proud as to be unable to admit when I have much to learn! And this should help to improve my efforts in other styles as well!
