Random Lady Brienne

Warm-down for the evening- a 10-minue sketch of the Lady Brienne from "A Song of Ice and Fire" series. I did it from memory... may have gotten the colors wrong, I dunno. Anyways.


This is what happens with me, beer and my friend Eugene get together on a Friday evening.

Ohhh yeah.

Drink and Draw Doodles

We played drawing telephone and discussed plans for a zine book at the last drink and draw. But I got some random doodles in as a warm-up while we sorted ourselves out and ordered our big kid beverages, food, etc.

One of my pals was trying to sort out character designs for a giant cavewoman. Out of curiosity, I messed around with some shapes too to see what I could come up with. Here's my rendition (I'm sure hers will be much more exciting)...

Here are some miscellaneous doodles. I filled a few pages but a lot of it was crap or thumbnailing for other things. The girl is a character from a "Sword in the Stone" adaptation I'm working on. The left side of her face was burned badly as a child.

Then there's a dragon head and a guy with a rad moustache.

And finally, my greatest creation of all time- Mrs. Weenie.

That's it for now! Got a painting and a large tonal drawing to scan and post later this week, and hopefully some more storyboards. School is kicking me right in the butt-place! I can't wait to have an extra few hours to go to the figure painting class in a couple of weeks (quitting one of my 3 jobs).

*thumbs up*

(I found the secret to getting more traffic and it's to do more "Game of Thrones" fan art. So expect some of that come the end of this term. I'm talking to you, 13 people who found my blog searching for that term in Google this morning.)

Animals and a couple of chubby ladies

Here are some drawings from a zoo crawl last weekend. Unedited, so you get to see my failures and successes. Alla re done in pen, and most are sloppy/super loose.

And some chubby ladies I doodled during class....

 Okay byyeeee!

Here are some random things. HOORAY THINGS.

 Mouths for dialogue animation research.

At the bottom of my notes pages I like to have a doodle portion. This time I doodled my friend Neisje, who is so cute and fun to draw!!

 And this time it was dragon-creatures!

I tutor in-class for a class at school that's called "Quicksketch", which is about churning out a lot of usable concepts and then bringing them to a quality finish. While the teacher gave a lecture on vehicle design, I made some space-ships. Thumbnailing is my favorite thing!!

Lots more to come tomorrow. Wheeeee!!!


The rough sketch of a painting I am working on for my mom. it's mostly tongue-in-cheek, though she does have the biggest political boner crush on our president. Recently, I've been more approving of him. I think he's getting braver and more outspoken as his term winds down, and I approve of the things he's been saying. High-five, President Man! Continue being awesome!

I'll post the final whenever I finish it.

Rice Chex Storyboards

Some storyboards for my storyboarding class. We were given a script to use and a basic character design. This is for a 30-second commercial.

The feedback I received was that they are too rendered/finished.
