Drawings of Geeky Things

Sooo I saw both the Wolverine movie and the new Star Trek movie. Wolverine was just hilarious, Star Trek was AMAZING. I've been watching the original series a lot lately.

Here are some stupid Wolverine drawings!

This is basically my interpretation of the whole movie. SCREAMING AND BUTT.

A couple more. Ignore the left doodle that is obviously not Wolverine. Notice how I'm using the Origins version of his hair, not his crazy devil horn hair (well, guess I tried that in the little one)...because I don't really know how it looks. No reference, woo!

Now, some Star Trek drawings!

The ones in purple are based off The Naked Time episode. The pencil ones were drawn while slightly under the influence of 3 glasses of wine.

Aaaand bad Spock. Inspired by the wonderful Bad Spock blog

Look at all that yellowy paper. You can really tell I've converted to the church of Moleskine lately.

By the way, character design class at The Animation Academy is going well. I'm learning a whole lot! Eventually I'll make a post with all my progress. Maybe once I'm done with one of my characters before we move on to the next one!

Okay I Believe You, But My Tommy Gun Don't

Here's what I got out of going to Drawing Club last night. The costumed model was a FEMME FATAL~! 40's-style Noir I'd say.

2 sets compiled according to the pose lengths

(I mostly just liked the lying down pose, even if it is a little wonky in the shoulder area)

My sessions keep getting a little better every time. But what I need to remind myself is to GO FURTHER and not always draw JUST what I see. That one with the happy face next to it has a lot more life to it because I exaggerated a bit. I also want my drawings to feel less STIFF. They're getting to be less stiff but I want them even more loose and fluid without being too sketchy.
At least with those poses, I started to get the hang of drawing high heels and the shoes at different angles last night. Woo!

Lots of uploading this week. I am pleased with this. Now if only people actually read this :)
