Sketches 100 by squirrelfire
Sketches 100
4:30 am and I just spent the last three hours filling in the small holes in this page. I had 90% of the page done in about 45 minutes four days ago, the rest of the time was spent filling in details. In addition to being page 100 (I sort of can't believe I actually got to 100) it also represents the first page where I set out to draw every sketch on the page, and had them all turn out basically like I wanted. Woo for progress.

I was starting to feel into drawing a bit more, so this page only took two days. Would have been one but I got a new video game I had to try out. No way around it.

And back to Sketchbook Pro. Again, seeing some improvements but I still am not nearly where I want to be. More practice ahead.

Well, here are even more sketches.  Back to using Manga Studio for this page. I really like their inking brushes, but not so big on the pencils...
Sketches 096 by squirrelfire
Sketches 096
This is my most recent piece to date, done in Sketchbook Pro. In the upper left I decided to try turning a friend of mine into a comic character - the blue sketch on the left is the original attempt and the black sketch to the right is a second attempt. One one had it's sort of cool that I can draw something like that, but on the other now that I know I can produce that sort of art it's harder for me to accept anything less which is part f the reason the current page in my sketchbook is taking so long. Hopefully there will be more to come soon!
So, it has been a couple of months since I posted my initial blog post that accompanied the creation of this account.  I will admit I am absolutely horrible about keeping up with my blogs, but I figured that since I use this portfolio as a reference for design jobs I probably should keep everything up to date.  So rather than actually expending any effort writing a blog post here, I will point out that I have been blogging on a monthly basis over at #FaithDesign so you should go over there and while you are there check out some of the excellent design work there.  Of course, if you got here from #FaithDesign then you are out of luck.  Check back regularly for a lack of updates.

About me. I am a freelance comic creator and industrial designer who does some other graphic work on the side to make ends meet. Recently got a Surface Pro and am loving be able to draw directly on the screen at home or on the road. I often work with vector based shapes for my design work but I never know what I may end up creating.
