    You know instead of all those cold studies try drawing from the moving animal. I used to do it ages ago and must get back to it. Dressage shows a horse off perfectly, ignore rider.

    Black Spot: That's just what I was thinking. I'll need to figure out where the nearest horse stable is from my school and when to visit one.

    It's kinda moot to post these since they're a few weeks old, but I thought I'd post 'em anyway. Will post finished ones soon.

    Hi all,

    Sorry I haven't been here for a long time. Been busy last semester, and honestly, I've also been caught up with emotional stress. You can't make your best work when you're not happy!

    So, I have decided to take a completely different direction this semester: experiment A LOT no matter how strange the results maybe. I got the idea partly from this TED talk by Stefan Sagmeister, where he cites that world-renown chef, Ferran Adria, owes his high quality results to taking the time to experiment.

    Alchemy Experiments (that actually have color!!):

    Actually, I printed out the mechanical part shapes from Alchemy, cut them out, and made a collage out of them. It's going to be a starting point for a project in my painting class. Wonder how far this can go . . .

    Class exercise to see how well students can mimic a style. (More so direct copy here.) Only had a few minutes for each style. So, must be quick, quick, quick.

    The background changed with this one. I recently added an alizarin crimson wash for it.

    I got the idea of gathering all my inspiration sources in my sketches from students in a mixed media class at my school. Instead of using printout samples of some images, I'm drawing everything out! A lot of fun, but very, very time consuming. So, I'm not sure how long I can keep this up, but let's make it last a while!

    First two pages of inspirational sources:

    Your whispers are like shimmers deep within the whimsical forest, making chakra look
    like a mantra. Clandestine movement under the Christmas tree, while snowing strongly over the
    frozen bee. Crazy shapes of euphoric believes, recreated infront of my eyes as I watch your
    wonderful traditional style. Straight back when you were working on the horse legs, I truly
    believed that you will limit yourself over a gradient of the animal skeletal. After you started
    to surprise me forcefully, doing other things as human faces and human figures. Not only
    that you have invested a masterful quality time, but you managed to surprise most of the
    majority crowd. Some hearts that were so cold and unreasonable toward your art, are now
    widely open, warmly welcoming your every step. Grip your pencils and grip your brushes
    strong, cause a greater revolution is what stands in front of your beautiful mind. You are
    something that can be hardly imitated in any sparring session. I want to express my admiration
    toward that Resident Evil dog, that you did with pen and then colored it over, it shows your
    hidden thirst toward red and wet things. After that I would highlight the safe feeling of
    that horse trapped in itís own altar. The feeling of compassion and love toward humanity
    can be felt in here. In the end, the acrylic washers on chiffon cloth is something that will be
    remembered for a long time, cause of a simple reason, they are masterpieces in the regular
    flow of the complex polluted winter snow. In todayís world, itís hard to find an individual
    like you are, so thatís why I am taking my hats off, you really did a big change to my individual
    sheltered self destructive subsequent personal compromise. I wish you many more creative
    hours, full of emotional minutes, filled with honey like joyful moments.

    LtPlissken: Hey, Lieutenant, you're back! I hope you will be around again after all your hard work at your current studio. As always, thank you for the kind words and reactions. Hmm . . . if the doggie design is close to the dogs in RE, that means I need to push things more.

    What is a deconstruction (link to TVTropes.org's definition)? My SMT obsession is growing so much, I don't even know what to do with it. Ngh!

    And I've been getting physically tired this summer. Hard to summon the energy to draw when I can't get quality sleep recently.

    Keep those whiplashing action packed drawings coming, cause you are on a winning streak.
    I cannot imagine my morning tea without watching your beautiful creations. My life without
    your imagination, would be like a madhouse without a manager.
