Hand Studies 05 (practicing)

Me holding a salt shaker
Left hand holding a piece of toast
Spoonful of butter!

Howdy!  More hand sketches.  Been trying to just get the basic construction instead of looking at my hand constantly and then filling out the details.  I am also trying to pay more attention to my angles and curves.  The nails are giving me a hard time as well as some hand poses (the holding toast one was difficult).  Trying to also simplify the hands while making sure that the gesture and hand formation is still clear.  I guess am trying to slowly make my way to hands that are more stylized and cartoonified.  

I had one hour tute last week, with my friend Ben Grimshaw....on hand construction.  I have heaps of books but sometimes, it's just easier to watch someone draw something for me to absorb the information.

Been monitoring the behaviours of my fish....did my first water change too....

Hi, hi! 

How are things going?  Thought I would touch base.  My first week and a bit at work has been quite full on.  Lots of work to do for now.....will see how that goes.  Rob and I went to Sushi Jiro at the QV last weekend for some delicious sushi train.  We love sushi train.  I especially wanted to draw the scampi nigiri and the spicy salmon nigiri.

I also drew my fatty boombah kitty, Hanzo.  He is on a diet...but it's going to take time to lose weight, so he's still fat.  I need to lose weight too.  I really need to lessen my sugar and certainly exercise more. 

Working on some test animations tomorrow.  Should be good fun!

IF: Burning


This is my illustration for Illustration Friday and the theme is Burning.  I wanted to do something simple with bold colours and I went for "burning passion" and why not?  I think it's the type of burning most people wont mind at all.  This was illustrated in Flash.

I bought two awesome fashion books today: Dreaming of Chanel and Dreaming of Dior.  I would definitely recommend them!

IF: Mail

"Peggy was so surprised when she discovered that........"

This is my submission for Illustration Friday: Mail.  Thought I would leave it open ended for everyone else to fill in the blanks.

I haven't been able to submit for two weeks because of freelance work and it feels so nice to have something up for this week.  I am still on fashion illustration mode and enjoying it a lot.  Done in Flash and tweaked in Photoshop.
