Sketchbook: Out of Perspective

Sketchbook: Out of Perspective

I might need a kleenex from this box as I find myself moving out of perspective…and towards the next WetCanvas class that I think will be all about cylinders. So maybe I won’t need a kleenex after all unless I cry in happiness over continuing to make progress. I think I said in a previous post that the next class would be spheres, but no, I’m pretty sure it’s really cylinders. We’ll all find out for sure when I start… Continue Reading

Sketchbook: Putting Perspective Into a Box

Sketchbook: Putting Perspective Into a Box

Lately, I’ve been drawing boxes. Lots and lots and lots of boxes.

It seemed simple enough, so I diligently drew a few boxes before moving on to the next task. Except for the horizon… Continue Reading

I’m ahead of the curve! Make a drawing of his head blowing up like in the video! Verrrry interesting, since…. A few days ago, I started working on the… Continue Reading

Sketchbook: Vault Boy Finally Arrives

Sketchbook: Vault Boy Finally Arrives

At last the Vault Boy has emerged from my paper. A few years ago, Bethesda Softworks released a computer/video game called Fallout 3. It was slated to be the next official game in the Fallout series and there was a lot of controversy surrounding it from Fallout fans as Bethsoft was new on the scene for this series and there were a huge amount of arguments whether or not Bethsoft was up to the task of carrying on the Fallout… Continue Reading
