I went to the zoo yesterday, with Victor, and decided to get a membership so I can go there and draw a lot. I decided to scan the drawings from last time I went to the zoo (about 2 weeks ago) and compare them with this time.

Last time (I really wasn't pleased with any of them):


Nice to see some improvement there (not that those are the greatest drawings either)! It helps to stay at one place for a while and just keep drawing the animals even if they move. It's all about learning about how they work and figuring things out. Fun, but kind of tiring for your brain.

Tonight I'll be at Drawing Club again. Just gotta keep on going!

Also, I think I am starting to realize why people are so addicted to Moleskine sketchbooks...ahhh I will have to buy another when my current one is done.

Groups of things!

Since I went to Animation Night at the Animation Academy yesterday (I'll be starting class there next week!), I scanned some more things to add to my portfolio. Hello to those I met, if you happen to see this!

People and animal doodles.

Some costumed figures done at Drawing Club.

Ninjas ninjas ninjas!

My portfolio right now isn't what I'd like it to be. I just need to keep drawing. It's good to go places like the zoo and Drawing Club. But what I'd really like is a personal project to work towards. I suppose I've always got my comic that has been in the back of my mind for almost a couple years now, but it needs a lot of work in so many areas. I'm sure I'l find something eventually, but until then, practice practice practice.

Also, I'm learning how to animate in Flash for this freelance project I'm working on, and it's pretty fun! Maybe I can try to put a few shots here once the project is done. I'm not sure if we are allowed to post any work for now, but as soon as I know I am allowed to, I will.
