CRAFTING A PRE-CHRISTMAS BLOGPOST

It’s been a brutal month and a half. November almost killed me. Storyboarded 150 panels for the development deal, wrote a research paper, gave a sweaty stuttering presentation on it, stayed on schedule with my thesis, and tried to keep up a drawing practice. I fell short on the last one. Most of my drawing these days look like this:

Busy

That’s a scribble, and some clues about what to draw later. For that reason, I don’t really have anything exciting to post. So to keep up my readership of 12 hits a month, I’m going to focus on Katie, who’s spent a couple weeks building a toilet:

She has a show coming up in February and she’s redoing the bathroom with all hand-built parts. It’s gonna be awesome.

December is gonna be good though. Gonna rip through this thesis, get some drawing done, get some gator teeth, get some some beer in me, get some sleep.

INKTOBER

Vincent

I was inspired by my buddy Jesse James Dean to hop on the inktober train and draw some of my favorite horror movie icons. The month was supposed to result in 31 finished ink drawings. I think I only have 1 finished drawing, but a shit ton of doodles:

And finally, this is a drawing that might get incorporated as a single frame in the thesis film of animation overlord Simon Wilches:

RENDER CRISIS

Pixel Breakdown

Rendering at 25% quality makes me wonder if I should have done my entire thesis pixel-art style. Here’s some more process stuff (color correcting) and happy-accidents:
