Hot links!

Some really recent links to some really outstanding artists have been posted on various internet forums and other blogs that I go to check out that I thought I would share the one's that I've really been checking out a lot.

All the links are something special imo.

John Neverez is a Disney artist that recently had posted to the Drawing board, and he's also done a blog. Really appealing stuff he has. You can tell he's been at his craft for a long while now

Stephen Silver is another really amazing Character designer who recently started blogging himself which is awesome to see. Looks like he posts to 2 blogs, his own and sketchclub which is with another artist by the name of Marcelo.

Harald Siepermann is another awesome character designer for all kinds of great films that I find inspirational. I came across his gallery site browsing the Drawing Board at one point, Thorsten Hasenkamm pointed out his gallery. Here that is
Harald Siepermann gallery
Also recently started blogging as well.

Justin Ridge I just recently came across his work. Awesome stuff.

Definitely stuff to aspire to, makes me want to get out the stick of lead and draw, which is what it's all about. Inspiration. Hopefully they inspire you too. Good day!

Figure drawing

My pal Tony Ravo posted a figure drawing from his blog which is located here It made me want to post some of my figure drawings that Ive done semi recently so here goes. I still need lots of work, but that's the point of figure drawing, to be a better artist which I can sure use. Thanks to work, we have access to figure drawing every week. I use to go pretty faithfully but as of late Ive not gone. I need to get back in the habit. I made it last week so that's good. Non-clothed figure drawing would probably get me in there more often. :P Our session at work is clothed and the some of the models like to wear really dark leotards which make it hard to see some lines when they wear them. Im not all that fond of drawing dudes either. I find the female form way more appealing and more enticeing to draw. Anyways, here are some of my drawings.

These were taken with my crappy camera phone. The newsprint is kinda hard to get scanned in without scanning in pieces and putting it back together in photoshop. Big pain. hehe Que sera...

Beautiful Canada!

Wow, it's been a while since I last posted eh. Ive been busy with work and life in general, that I havent taken the time to post to my blog. This pic was taken the weekend before last up in Harrison Hot Springs in BC, Canada. Such a sight up there. Tree's and mountains surrounding. It's beautiful up there. Living in the NW is pretty dang nice itself, but man this place is somewhere you need to see if you can make it. It's only 3 hrs away from the Seattle area. Not too bad of a drive. It's a great drive really. The beach there is really really nice. Like having the ocean beach right there on the lake and the water wasnt too bad. It was a little chilly due to it being glacial water from the mountains. Mid Aug is not too bad, considering it was 90 degrees up there too. It felt good to get in the water.

The also have some great sand castle building up there. Coming up very soon in September they have a sand castle building competition. I think I may have to take the family back up there to see that. They have a website which shows some of the past exhibitions. Pretty dang sweet what they can do what that sand. Here is the link

If you follow the pic above there are a couple of other pics that I took while up there. Some good ones of some of the sand castles they have on display right now.

One plus is that the American dollar is worth more than the Canandian dollar so our money is a little easier spent there. Another plus to Canada is the chocolate. :P I had one of the best candy bars Ive had in a long time up there. I heard someone say that they put a waxy like substance in American chocolate. Im not sure if that is accurate or not, but I did notice a different taste to the chocolate up there.

Anyways...Take a look up there if you are in the area, it's worth the trip.
