    It seems nothing really goes as planed lately, and I'm filled with uncertainty and doubt. I'm searching, but don't know what I'm searching for.

    I'm starting this sketch book. Hopefully I'll find what I'm looking for alone the way.

    These is a character design I did for a Chinese novel, "Daomubiji" (Grave Robber's notebook" working English title). People are translating it into English right now, hopefully you guys will get to read it. It's really cool book.

    I did this little drawing during grad school, just a random sketch. I really liked her and always wanted to do a color version. So about 4 years later, I finally get around and decide to do a color version. But after I finished the refined sketch, she turns into a completely different concept. LOL that was fun....

    Here is 05 version of "the Lady"

    The Knight

    When I draw those two sketches, I never thought of doing a matching panel, but after I was done, they looked kind of nice together. That's where the matching panel painting came from. Also at the time, I saw Michael Parkes' two panel painting about Dante and Beatrice. I never liked Michael Parkes' works, but I really like the feel of those two paintings. an innocent Beatrice and a serious and tortured poet.

    I don't really have that much thought for my panels though, I just like to draw pretty pictures.

    Here's the original 05 design:

    Here's the new design.

    I always have the feeling, there're something magical about drawing with pencil and paper. and that magical feeling just got lost in digital. I'm not sure if it's just I didn't do digital long enough or digital has a different kind of magic that I have yet to discover.

    I didn't get much done today.

    Very few people here draw from line art. Looks like people just start with rough color patches and add detail to it. I just can't draw that way, every painting I did came from a black and white line art, and I work from one area to another, normally in separate layers like skin, clothing, weapon, background... good thing about this method is if I screw up one part, it won't mess up the rest. But the down side is sometimes I get into details and forget about the bigger picture (literary). I think I'll try working with color from get go, see if I like it that way.
