Fox Guy in Scarf: My take on this pic.  Trying something different; playing with more shading.  Just have to remember to apply fixative to my sketchbook in a timely fashion, or, well, it gets all smudgy.  And I have enough of that problem already.Fox Guy in Scarf: My take on this pic.

Shirtless Wolf: My take on this image.  Trying to expand my repertoire and draw more guys.  Particularly for a friend of mine ;-).  Continuing deeper coloration.  It does add a surprising amount of time to drawing.Shirtless Wolf: My take on this image. Trying to expand my repertoire and draw more guys. Particularly for a friend of mine ;-).

Sketchy updates.

By which I mean, an update!

I actually filled another sketchbook in all this time I've left the site fallow, along with a bunch of other stuff. So hopefully I'll get to post some of that. I've decided to work backwards, if for no other reason then there's some stuff I really like towards the end (ie here) that I wanna get out there.

Don't know if that's a good idea or not, as I like to show progress, but you know, whatever. So here we go:

Rox in a Bikini: ...and not enjoying it much.  Starting with my favorite.Rox in a Bikini: ...and not enjoying it much. Starting with my favorite.

It Flies!

It flies! It's been a long time coming, but it does finally fly. A big day for aviation, yesterday.

Sorry for the lack of updates. Once you let them snowball... it's bad.

Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome

In honor of tonight's one game playoff in Minnesota, I present to you the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome (click for larger view):

As you may or may not know, this is the last year for baseball at the Metrodome, as next year the Twins move into a new ballpark, Target Field (no, I'm not joking). Anyway, loving architecture, baseball, and stadiums, I had to go check it out, if only because I wasn't going to have another chance. Yes, I admit I'm crazy, thank you. As an aside, when I returned from that trip, which included a stop at New Comiskey (aka US Cellular Field, in Chicago), I found my hard drive had died. Grrr. Which explains the lack of updates. At least, more than usual. I'll post more photos and maybe some details in the future. But I digress.

Who would've thought the last regular season game wouldn't be the last regular season game; rather, they needed a 163rd game. Win or lose, it's a hell of a way to close down the place (and if they win, well, it isn't done yet...)

New drawings

Sorry for not updating in so long. I've decided to work more backwards; hence I'm starting here with recent stuff (ie - very recent).

I've also finally decided to put some stuff under "Drawings" and not "Sketchbook". I'm instituting a new taxonomy system to make browsing easier, but it isn't finished yet.

Anyway, here we go:

Sitting on a Train: Start with my favorite.  Not finished, but click for a better description.Sitting on a Train: Start with my favorite. Not finished, but click for a better description.

An update in which there are a number of sketches. Unfortunately not comedy.

Finally, real content! Poor me, it's so hard to operate the scanner! Yes, I know, you weep for me. But anyway, some older drawings as I try to catch up to real time.

Ink Nude: From an old (relative to posting date) meeting of the CPSG, where for the first time we had a real, live, nude model.  Of course, I wasn't so well prepared and all that.  This was one of the better ones, made quickly with a brush pen running out of ink.
