I'm real happy with the way I made her body look, but her face feels a little generic. I really wish I could have gotten those wild front teeth in the drawing, but I didn't see them till it was too late. She wanted to be dancing. Usually it's little girls who ask for that and I just draw um freakin out and throw a boom box and some music notes in there, but if they're a little older you get to draw them in a pulsating dance club, throw in some silhouettes which are fun, cuz each little one happens fast and it could turn out good or bad or in between. Most of the silhouettes in this one turned out bad, but I kind of like the one on our far left, just cuz the legs though.

I got an email from an artist named Dylan. He commissioned me to do a drawing of him. He just wanted black and white. Here it is.
Here's a photo of him
Here's a color one I just had to do for my own enjoyment. I added the color to the drawing that occurred before the final take.
My commission prices are as follows incase anybody wonders. $25 per face black and white. $50 per face color. Here's the other two commissions I've done for old time sakes.

Flip-books are fun. I've been fiddling about with animation and found that making somebody walk is much more difficult than it looks. Finally, I got me a little post-it pad and decided to focus on that one problem alone. Nate said I needed to add an expression on the ball so I went through and did that too, as an afterthought.

I use to play this with my brother and sisters sometimes. What you do is sit in some kind of circle, and you go around the room. The first person describes the first feature. It can be any feature they choose. Maybe they'll say long, thin, dreamy eyes. Then everybody will draw that feature however they interpret it. Then it's the next person's turn to describe a feature. You go around the circle thusly, until someone decides that the character is complete. Then, everybody shows everybody their drawings. You can't let anyone see it till the end.
I played this game with Sam Gorrie at a coffee shop when she was in town. Here are the two people I invented. The first turned out to be a weird looking, whistling, break dancing girl. The second, a smelly, star-struck girl. I included the bottom portion of the first sketchbook page because it's a drawing of Patrick that turned out fairly well, and also there's some type doodling.
