Scary Overweight Redneck (90 minutes)

First Model Night speed zsketch of the new year... I'll be continuing to do these on the side from taking an online class, plus pick up a little gesture drawing to loosen up as I roll into starting the Realms Unreel project in mid-February.  It's going to be an exciting 2012!

Last Week for Realms Unreel Kickstarter!

We're so close to reaching our goal!  Audrey and I started going over some initial sketches (see above) in starting to explore the main characters, and it's been great fun to play with early impressions of where they will go.
This is the *last week* of our Kickstarter effort to raise interest in a first run of the illustrated book, so if you'd like to be part of Realms Unreel now's the time to make a pledge!  As a bonus, expect some very cool new gift additions to show up on the page in the next couple of days.

Hope you'll consider supporting the project!

Halloween Costume

A bit late posting this, but I thought it would be fun to share my first ever costume created with the help of 3D modeling software: Dark Helmet!  The materials used were very inexpensive (mostly cardboard & duct tape with old black acrylic paint) and the whole thing was done on the Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning of Halloween weekend.  Learned a LOT from the process and looking forward to a more refined surface texture on my next costume.  My gal - persevering as I tested her limits of patience on a "last-minute" costume idea - even went as Princess Vespa with an industrial strength hair dryer!
