    @ bpic - I know man. I'm staying too far away from his hands it's sickining. Here's the original. [His] right hand holding the keys feels so unfinished, and without attacking his left hand to finish, the whole piece starts to fall apart:

    @ aveh - that's the only way isn't it though? Haha. Sacrificing sleep to draw giant robots and ninjas. I haven't figured out yet if I'm learning to control my art or if it's already started controlling me :/ Good to hear you're getting fired up though!! You've got some nice work

    @ my57 - ahhhhhh!!
    @ aveh - i'm here!! i'm here!!

    Sorry for yet again another delay guys. I'm not the best at this daily updating thing :/ Hopefully this will tide you over till the next big batch of artery is ready

    Crits and comments strongly encouraged. Characters aren't my strong suit and I'm trying to really push personality/non-stiffness in my characters this semester. Graduating this summer, so if I can be proud of at least ONE char. in my portfolio, I'll have accomplished something over the last 3 years. Haha

    At this point I think you should just dive in and get to work on her, just be suuuuper nitpicky about everything and you will be surprised about how it will turn out.

    @ aveh - I think you're right. It sucks though because she's one of five characters that we have to illustrate for Shakespear's "The Tempest" and we're only allowed to use one accent color to focus more on the design aspect of the costuming.

    I think what I'm going to do though (if the other 4 characters turn out alright) is pose them in a group shot and run a full-color render across the page. We'll see.

    Here's some quick 10-15 min. color thumbs for a side project I'm working on using a kick ass new color technique. Should prove EXTREMELY helpful for working directly with color rather than overlaying on value studies as I've done in the past. Really excited!

    Thought I might post this here and get some quick feedback. I'm gonna be working like crazy trying to bring this to finish today through tuesday :/

    I'n my eyes this is just about 40% completed. Most of my values are in place, the color is STARTING to work together, but I have a long ways to go in terms of laying down strokes. The lineart is still showing through and in places like his hands and face, the lines need to be re-worked entirely to feel older and knobblier. I think once I get that down, tone down the green LED display on the briefcase, and figure out what to do with the window arch I can continue worrying about atmosphere and surface materials.

    Thanks for looking!! Should be posting the final by the end of this week:

    @ ludic - Thanks!!

    'Nother update. Almost there. About 80%-85% locked down. Just need to address a few major areas that haven't been touched in a while and throw around some crisp edges to tighten up the focal point. Needs to be out of here by Wednesday so tomorrow will be the final push.

    @ Assassin - Thanks!!

    This is what the final ended up looking like. Learned a lot in the process. I think I would have liked to have gone back and re-worked a few areas given more time, but this is it for now:

    Sectra's Book o' Sketches

    And another 1hr speedy for the night to go along with the 20 min color studies i posted earlier. Same story, just building on the composition before I jump into the final. Sorry if it looks a bit dark on your end. I REALLY need to buy some monitor calibration stuff. Never done that before with this beast.
