The Drawing Club book is out!

The leader of our bi weekly drawing night here at work, Bob Kato, has a great new book out based on his main weekly workshop here in L.A., The Drawing Club. Open to all for a modest admission, Bob provides a night of fantastic character models, beautifully lit and propped out complete with themed soundtrack. Highly recommended if you're in the area. Or you can buy his book which covers a lot of info on drawing characters from life and is packed with drawings ( a few of my pieces are included, thanks Bob!) Only $19 bucks or so on Amazon,support the arts and get a great instruction book as well. Congrats Bob, I hope the book does well!

Farewell Tiffany!

We bid a fond farewell to a great model, Tiffany Chin, as she moves on to voice-over work. Someone else will have to take on the Tank Girl character in drawing workshops. Best of luck to you!

Finally

Finally some new sketches. I've been really busy at work and my house is a mess from a remodel, so the side art has slowed.

Face It!

It's been really busy lately, so not a lot of spare time for painting. I did manage to get in some practice faces from photos, they're always a good quick way to try some different techniques.

Art Theft Update: Success!

I contacted ebay's Vero group (copyright infringement) and they immediately got the piece removed. Kudos to them for doing the right thing.

STOLEN ART!

Well, some interesting news. Imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon on of my pieces from this site for sale, print on demand from an EBAY shop. Lambretta Love from 2011 was stolen directly from this site, name removed. Lesson learned. Don't post art at a reasonable resolution, or add a big fat watermark. Anyway, I've contacted Ebay to get these clowns to remove it from their site, we'll see what happens next.

The Sorceress

We had the great Stacy Walker last week as a sorceress, she has modeled for many fantasy artists and has made the cover of no less than 13 issues of Heavy Metal magazine. I thought I'd show the workshop sketch and what I did with it later to make it more of a concept piece. The background is made up. Again, just for fun and practice.

Circe

Larva (yes, Larva) was our model last night in a nymphy sort of costume. It didn't matter, she was great, I added a little photoshop cleanup to hide my mistakes and ended up with a couple decent drawings.

Maid Redux

Sara returns as the French maid, always a treat to draw. These were charcoal with a bit of color, but I couldn't resist adding tone and a wash or two on the computer. (plus I fixed a couple of drawing boo boos after scanning) Oui oui, mon ami!!
