A few more Judy drawings

It has been awhile since I’ve posted up any drawings of belly dancers.  Or of my anthropomorphic belly dancing bruin, Judy.  So why not a few more?

I’ll definitely need to make a model sheet so it’ll be easier to make more drawings of Judy.  Read the rest of this entry »

Kickstarter: Help the Toonseum and Agatha Frisky

This post is a special one.  This isn’t about me, my drawings or my comics.  It’s about two other special projects.

The Toonseum of Pittsburgh, PA is holding a Kickstarter campaign.  This establishment, a museum dedicated to comics and animation, wants to expand their space – but they need funding.  Not much time is left too.  At this time, they must meet their goal by Monday September 19, 8:30 PM EDT.

Also, an independent comics series titled “Agatha Frisky” is being launched.  This series is also having a Kickstarter campaign to help raise the necessary funds.

Both of these projects need your help.  Give what you can to help them out.

Practice Drawing Hands!

No matter what you draw, one of the ways to get good is to practice drawing hands.  Believe it or not, drawing hands can be very tricky.

If you work in comics or illustration, then drawing of hands is a must!  Some editors will look to the way people draw hands.  If the artist they review can’t draw hands well or avoids drawing them, then it may be an indicator of other problems they’re covering up.

Jack Davis of MAD magazine fame is renowned for his ability to draw hands.  If he can do it, you can too.

Pineapple

Just another still life drawing – this time it’s a pineapple.

This may look simple…but the shape and texture of the pineapple can be a challenge.  That’s why it’s good to try your hand at drawing one.
