I Am A Slug (or Evolution Is Not All It's Cracked Up To Be)

Growing as an artist seems to = this weird evolutionary cycle. You try really really hard, suddenly hit this step of pure inspired drawing and think "AHA! Now we're talking! I'm in business", then when you continue, discover that you're back to drawing crude circles with tiny embarrassing arms. And then it's off to trying really really hard again.

An Incredible Christmas Special

While perusing through the comic category of Amazon, I noticed that there is now a RED HULK. I realized that this Red and Green combo must be some sort of set up by the marketing team to create a new Christmas special starring the incredible Hulk. I imagine a melancholy soundtrack by the Vince Gauraldi Trio, and in the end, both Hulks learn the true meaning of Christmas, while being fired upon by the US military.

It should probably be noted that I know nothing about the Red Hulk aside from his color. The last time I read an Incredible Hulk comic, the green Hulk and the grey Hulk were pummeling each other inside of Bruce Banner's mind, while in the real world, Bruce Banner was kicking his own butt and embarrassing himself.

Coloring With Water

So I've been dying to get a little watercolor kit that I can carry around and put down color really quickly in my sketchbook. Finally, we were instructed to do so (AKA I had an excuse to purchase) in my gesture drawing class . It's been a lot of fun. Here are some samples (click them to enlarge them):

Figure Drawings

With finals finally behind me, I can get back to posting on my blog. First stop: I don't think I've ever posted figure drawings here. Here ya go. I was trying to loosen up with some markers.
