I'm currently enrolled in the character design class taught by David Colman who is just an amazing artist to watch work. We had a Cowboy costumed model which was really fun to draw! David had mentioned to try an exercise by remembering a pose or certain elements you saw on the model and sketch them from memory. This is my attempt at the exercise... I like my result.

A Creature...

Back in 2007 while i was still in school, i came across a blog called "CreatureBox" and was hooked instantly! Dave and Greg are the reason i bought a tablet and sketchbook pro. They are the creative spark that has pushed me to draw & draw and maybe reach that goal to work in a studio... Bruce Timm is what inspired me to draw characters, Creaturebox started my digital interest, Jeremy Vanhoozer has gotten me robot crazy and Louie Del Carmen has got me interested in drawing cute girls!! Thank you all-JM

Just a quick idea i had..

It's amazing how much your drawing and painting ability suffer if you stop for a bit....For awhile i was just painting on my iphone. I have to focus on this much more...

I recently purchased Sketchbook pro 2010 and I must say.. I like it a lot! Can't say i love it, yet, but I'm sure i will. This is my first sketch with the new program . Loving the new Tools! The Ellipse tool is a time saver, and i've yet to mess with the symmetry tool.. This will be post number #50 for my blog and i must say I'm proud! Some goal needs to be set like.... by the time i post number 300 hopefully i'll be working in a studio somewhere sketching the next big thing... We'll see. Thanks to all who stop by-JM

Vanhoozer Tribute...

In celebration of the news regarding Jeremy Vanhoozer's book, I decided commemorate him with my very own Vanhoozer-esque piece!! I was going to attempt to a battle of the bots similar to the ballinger/vanhoozer duel but didn't because I wouldn't stand a chance against Jeremy! If you haven't seen his work already, stop by his blog!!
