Here's a few things.

First another Zomibe Boyscout. The movie "Fido" made me so happy that it had Zombie Cadets (like boyscouts) who TURNED INTO ZOMBIES. Yessss. I wish I had pictures of their uniforms, I drew that kid without reference. I'm not very good at weird angles, either.

And character, Dylan. He likes to wear ties :B. And I don't know why he looks so angry, he's more uncaring than angry, in general.

I am currently writing a screenplay about Dylan (as those who are in class with me know), but I like drawing him more than writing about him :(. I drew him way too much last week. And the ones of him with scarves were unsuccessful attempts to try and draw something I could use as a new layout for my website. It's been "under construction" for way too long just because I haven't made a new layout for it.

Also, another character I've actually used in a short animation before, Pete, the Evil Panda-Hat Boy. His face is a bit similar to Dylan's, but they have very different colored hair and skin and clothes.

I guess that's all. I should be doing homework right now. Bohhhhh.

Wow so I'm WAY almost done with my one film now! Just a few more scenes to color, and some backgrounds, and BOOM I'll be done. The sound is going to be done this week, too. I'm quite excited.
...then I have tons of work to do on my thesis, and I'll ONLY be focusing on that, for once.

I don't actually have a sketch, but just something amusing I wanted to show. Because the character in my animation drives a sort of Cadillac-ish car, and the the song "Cadillac" by Mest has amused me since high school (it's the only Mest song I still have on my comptuer, haha), I combined the two for the hell of it.

Cadillac from Lauren Blakely on Vimeo.
Maybe it's not funny to anyone but me, but I'm glad I can at least amuse myself.

Hopefully I'll have something to post by the end of the week. But if not, it's because I'm finishing up the animation.

Heck Yes!

I am so close to being done with one of my animations for school! I didn't think I had time to draw this week, but inspiration hit me on Thursday. Most of this is from that day.

Uhh random stuff. But the first one is my character, Dylan, who I'm writing a screenplay about. He's a poet, and he likes to wear ties :B.

Some drawings I'll be putting in the ending credits for the film I'm almost done with, and also a title design. I'll probably do some minial color stuff. And I went with Goat Rage (like Road Rage) because I'm not that clever with titles, and it's the best thing I could think of.

Finally....SELF-PORTRAITS! Sometimes I like drawing myself in weird and ugly ways. I am wondering if I should use one of these as a new Blogger profile picture.

Oh and as for explanation...the thumbs up one is because I've noticed I do that a lot these days (with BOTH hands), and call my male friends "sir". The door one is because Andrew made me think someone was knocking but he was just tapping his GOSH-DARN PEN!! The cupcakes one is because I got a free cupcake at Nickelodeon on Thursday, and the one on the bottom life. I live in an animation dungeon.

Now it's SLEEP TIME!

It appears as though I will only really update this at the end of the week. And I've found that my only time for free sketching is either during downtime at my internship, or during a class if I'm feeling REALLY daring/rebelious/badass.

...okay, the latter does not really make me any of those things, but I SHOULD be a good student and pay attention to my lovely professors, right? Right.

I don't have much to show this week, sadly.

A few girls, and some random stuff.

Also, sometimes when I don't know what to draw, I draw bald people (mostly because I'm too lazy to think of hair and clothes) in weird poses to practice poses. Because I'm not very good at exciting ones.

Well sorry this was not very much, nor was it very exciting. Maybe next week I'll have more? Who knows!
