    we had to look after a giant rabbit for a week for a friend, I think its name was Rory but we called it Rabbidiot and Watership Downs; it was the most annoying animal Ive ever known.

    i think your portfolio fronticepiece thing is a lot weaker than some of your other work; these are great:

    I like 'em, but then I expect them to have all the smarts and social skills of a really dumb toddler. Mostly I find them amusing because the common perception is that they're sweet but if you know their body language and social cues you discover that they're arrogant little bastards. That appeals to me.

    Thanks. Truthfully I'm just baffled at what people seem to respond to. Barring comics, which always do well, the frontpiece seems to be the most popular thing I've posted in 2012. And I think it's all right but the ink stuff is better.

    I'm just in this weird place right now where all the stuff I get really excited about gets little to no response. It's been a demotivating month. It seems like every week I wake up and decide to do something completely different and that's no way to build an audience.

    haha dont let it bother you, if you like it, who cares? i do a lot of stuff that if someone else had done id think, dont like it, but i had such fun doing it i dont care at all. sometimes you just have to scratch that itch.

    They are! they destroy stuff constantly, they seem to have to move about all the time, they get stuck inside stuff all the time, they chew laptop cables and bizarrely they jump up at you and knock over the ashtray. nut doers. i like a dog that sits by my feet and shuts the fuck up.

    Yeah, mostly I do what I want. But since I need to get paid one of these days, it would be nice to find the intersection of What I Like Street and What Other People Like Road.

    Fair enough! Everybody's got a favourite kind of pet. Most of the dogs I know are yappy bastards and I just can't stand that.

    Aaanyway.

    I was going to post a scuzzy Easter bunny for the "I hate people" thread in the Lounge but it ran off in weird directions and I'm not drawing Ned Stark on a bicycle. At least not this week.

    This was done directly in ink (usually I put down at least some pencils). Trying to improve my line quality through Not Erasing. My guy playing Rocksmith:

    The problem with working in pencil crayon is that it's flippin' slow.

    So I thought this life drawing session went better than some of the previous ones. It was the fifth session this year, which is better than any other year I've done. I missed one session because the model didn't show but I'm going to make it up with one of the long pose sessions in May and try my hand at painting the figure.

    Attachment 1469415

    Attachment 1469416

    I think I'm starting to see slight results from all this practice. I should be able to make it to about 16 more sessions this year and I'm interested in seeing whether the pictures at the end of the year will be any better than the ones at the beginning.

    I've also finished the first newsprint pad! Excitement! I think I'm going to cut out the better pages, try scanning them for slightly better reproduction, and then recycle the thing.

    I made it out to paint last Sunday. Found this weathered building in one of the industrial areas:

    Attachment 1469417

    It was a lovely day but I only spent a couple hours out because I forgot the sunscreen. I'm going to finish it up from photos. I'm trying to use more neutral colours, hoping to avoid that cartoony look. I think the head-on angle of the building flattens everything out, but I couldn't find a different view that had all the interesting bits in it (the tree, door, and the yellow paint showing where the stucco had crumbled) unobstructed, that didn't also have me sitting in the middle of 97th street.

    I was hoping to get out again this weekend but it snowed today, which makes things awkward with the water-based media.

    New kids' illo in progress:

    A couple of sketches.

    This woman appeared on a commercial while I was trying to watch Youtube. She's apparently the production designer for Game of Thrones.

    She has a wonderful face that lent itself to silliness.

    More Youtube-inspired sketching:

    Some more-or-less finished work.

    Horses, from a photo I took:
    Attachment 1476505
    Coloured pencil on paper.

    I went to my first long-pose session yesterday:
    Attachment 1476506
    Acrylics on masonite, about 12x16" I think, 3 hours.
    Could have gone better but it could have easily gone a lot worse. I think I'm going to try to get this one into the figure drawing show.

    The last of last week's figure studies:

    Attachment 1482867 Attachment 1482868

    Finally finished this thing up:

    Attachment 1482874

    Pencil crayon on Canson Mi-teinte paper. No more leafy backgrounds. Never again!

    I'll be painting tonight and possibly tomorrow, and on Saturday my comic shop is bringing a horse in for a life-drawing session. That should be exciting. Or at least weird and special.
