Oh man... it feels so strange coming back to this dusty thread of mine.. almost like leaving a small town for 10 years and coming back to a giant metropolis. But i'm finally updating a little bit for everyone as I didn't even notice people's commenting on a thread turned ghost town. Much thanks.
But first... replies...
TwixenRumAlot - Dearest M, you're coming to visit in a few days and you've gotta save me from this living at home parental control madness. My inner child is dying inside and i'm slowly evolving into a hunchbacked old man that just works all the time. Oh man,
koroshiya001 - Wil, we're going to have to jam some sketchsauce soon... coffeeshop or something. Been doing that a lot lately. Even have one of my other friends to go with me.
Qxzi - Hey man, thanks for the encouragement. I noticed that none of my heads had foreheads so I tried quelling the beast with this update... hopefully it shows some kind of improvement. Much thanks for the kindness.
TheGnoll - Thanks for the tips. I've definitely slowed down a lot and have been taking more time to produced less sketchy but more finished work.
BOON - Man oh man oh man, I hope you're doing well dude. I think you may actually be in the big T right now, [aka THAILAND], so you better be enjoying the sights and food for me. No worries about me arting it up, been doing more everyday. What about you my asian BRO-SKI?! Oh damn post MTL/YUL withdrawals.
That fat kid - HEY DOOD, yea, i've been drawing. I don't remember if I told you my plans for being at home but i've been trying to keep to my schedule of concentrating on certain things for about 3 days each, and then over-viewing all of them together. Like 3 days were legs, or heads, or the torso, etc. It's just tough when i'm busting my ass at the restaurant. Sadness. But thanks for stopping in friend.
Tetsuo - So if there was a ninja/pirate fight i'm guessing you'd want the ninja's to win? And have you by any chance seen "The Street Fighter", starring none other than action star SONNY CHIBA??? Hah, was definitely cool meeting you in Montreal man. Didn't get to chitchat as much as i'd like, seems like we were all in a sort of concentrated trance like soaking of information stage.
easy tiger! - Thanks for the push sir. And likewise with meeting you and the others from SCADDY SCAD SCAD. Didn't get to hang out as much as i'd have liked.. the lack of sleep fkept me away from getting to know everyone better ala antisocial and being tired and dozing off. Till next time man.
I haven't updated in a long long while because of the promise I made myself during the workshop. I noticed I spend way too much time browsing the sketchbook section, hell, just browsing CA altogether and not spending enough time concentrating on making quality work. Since then i've been browsing CA a lot less. [Although i'm guilty of sneaking into the lounge every now and again. The thread about the "CA School" sounds... what's the word, completely badass?] Another part of the promise to myself was to only post the work that's of better quality than a lot of the "not so good" sketches that come from a pencil fart that only lasts 10 seconds.
I've been trying to incorporate EVERYTHING into the work, and getting out and experiencing as much as I can. The workshop was the most eye-opening experience EVER, and being with such a large number of like-minded people is something I definitely miss a lot. To everyone I met and talked to and battled the rain with, shared a few drinks or even just walked next to, I salute you and you all have my respect and more importantly my friendship.
So i'm going to try the new image uploader thing and see how it goes. Most of the sketches are done post-workshop minus a couple that were done during. Apologies for some of the blurry ones.
edit: Also wanted to add that I guess i'll keep this SB thread as I almost just started a new one post-workshop. We'll see how it goes I guess. Thoughts? Opinions? And pee es, much appreciation to all.
