Hi, I'm Terri. My goal is to have a career that is predominantly about drawing and storytelling. I don't know what that career looks like, but I do know I have to be really good if I want to get there. So here I am, a diehard lurker posting things.
I'll try to post at least once a week. For now, kicking this off with work from the past six months.

I've been working on the first piece from a personal illustration series for a while now. I'm using this piece to try a lot of new processes on. For instance, I went through a lot more thumbnails than I normally do with this piece. I only uploaded a handful of them. Right now, I have the rough sketch for the final comp done. It's in a swamp and there'll be water to obscure a lot of the bottom half of the image, but even with that in mind I think it may be too cluttered. I think I'll play around with it a little more.
The sirens' hair is going to be partially in dreadlocks, so doing some studies of locs. I'll render the drawings tonight or tomorrow depending on work.
Interesting thumbnails, looking forward to see the final piece. I also like the composition on the 1st and 4th thumbnails on the top row. There is something enigmatic about not seeing the siren's face, and at the same time you are directing the viewer's attention to her with the gaze of the male figure.
@ujjalloh - I think I may make her back face the viewer again for the reason you mentioned. As it is now, it just doesn't have the effect I was going for.
For the first time in a month or two I went more than a few days without drawing. It felt weird. I felt totally guilty about it. When I had an opportunity to sit with my sketchbook again I felt like I didn't even know how to draw anymore. I've slowly been settling back in my 'zone'. I finished off my sketchbook with some gestures. I'd like to do more gestures and turnarounds in my next sketchbook.
