Two drawings from an elective class that I'm taking.

With this drawing I was trying to experiment with how dark I could push a graphite pencil. I'm more or less happy with it.

Before this class session I had just gone out on a really nice 1st date with someone. I like to think that it had a positive impact on my drawing that night.

Art of Avatar the Last Airbender.

Thank you Nickelodeon for releasing this. I can't wait to get my hands on this.


Product DescriptionSince its debut in 2005, Avatar: The Last Airbender has been one of Nickelodeon's most talked about and highest-rated animated series. Offering an epic storyline, engaging characters, action, adventure, and a powerful message about the importance of hope in a world besieged by war, it is also beautifully executed, harmonizing Western influences with aesthetic inspiration drawn from a diverse array of cultures, including those of China, Japan, India, and the Inuit. An unprecedented look at the concept, design, and production art behind this smash-hit, award-winning series, Avatar: The Last Airbender - The Art of the Animated Series features hundreds of images, most of which Nickelodeon has never released to the public, and chronicles the show's development - from the very first sketch through to the series finale and beyond! With extensive commentary from series creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino.

Really good draftsman, and nice people too.

Hopefully two posts today will make up for my lack of activity on this blog.

The first painting is a painting of a cast of the Greek storyteller Homer (I think it's Homer) from last Winter/Spring.

The second painting is a still life that I've been working on. I wanted to make a composition rather than just painting one cast. I'm especially interested in getting feedback on this one from people. Do you think it works or not?


A painting from last quarter. It's suppoused to represent a personified Mother nature/Earth. If possible I'd love to get some feedback.
