Sculpting was very refreshing and relaxing this morning, it's a good break from drawing constantly, I definitely want to do more. PS: The wood base I got had "Alex Chow" written on it already, I did not steal this sculpture! lol

And another one

The S.S. Gar Paw

Might as well

I haven't been posting a lot lately, so I might as well put this up here. I only chose a pirate theme (as usual) because I wanted to learn to draw ships

"Cry in the dojo, laugh on the battlefield"

I cannot stress enough how much preparation helps! Tons of thumbnails, color studies, film and photo reference, etc. Every little bit of preparation helps the success of the end product.

On your mark...

Production for the group film has started, and I'm honestly pretty excited! I definitely want it to turn out great, and it's good that the rest of my group thinks so too, so let's go kick butt!

Beep Boo Boo Bop

I really wish I could post more often this summer, but with the lack of a scanner, it is not possible. Just working on prints for Fan Expo, hopefully Andy and I can get a table! Waiting for that reply from the Fan Ex peoples. If you are reading this I hope you are having a great summer so far!

May the Fourth be with you!

There is no emotion, there is peace.
There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
There is no passion, there is serenity.
There is no chaos, there is harmony.
There is no death, there is the Force.
My take on Bastila Shan

Audio from The King's Speech(2010). I do want to finish the sequence, but I guess I'll leave that till after school is done so I'll have more experience under my belt
