    --..-- Welcome to the Lair --..--

    Hello, most excellent people. I'm 17, and I've begun to consider where I'd like to go to school. I plan to study illustration.

    Currently checking out MICA, RISD, Pratt, Parsons & Cooper.

    In the meantime, let's get some imagey goodness happening.

    Thank you very much ohomoho! Really, you're work is great, so it means a lot to me.

    skorpi, I agree completely. It was quite an exercise in rendering and I got completely lost. Her legs are ridiculous!

    Here are some random pages. Left, pencil and thin marker; right, ball-point. Cheers

    I really dig the drawing with blue background. The distorted proportions are cool.
    The self portrait reminds me a bit of Schiele. Good stuff!

    Flaskpost - thanks so much! I'm really glad to hear the distortion works as I was unsure about it. There's a thin line between getting it right and pushing it too far. Funny I've been compared to Schiele before!

    lilnebo - thank you very much!

    I'll throw in one more for today Cheers!

    SHEESHBALLS! Your style blows my mind. It works so well. I love how you completely stylize everything. It's fun to see things through YOUR eyes

    My favorite is post #15.

    It annoyed me how all the details in this one got lost. This might help.

    This computer coloring thing is hard.

    Just a wip. C&c would be super handy.

    Man, this is a really strong book right off the start. How did you color that first piece? I really love your characters. At first I hated the odd perspectives and distorted poses, but now I like them. Keep posting.
