That does seem a little weird. Must be something to do with the composition or something. I wouldn't know. But still, the sketches are turning out pretty damn well - especially like the shading.

Colouring with the pencils does seem a little sketchy, though.

I think it's just an over-all work of composition, depth and shading! :D :D I find it oddly amusing! :D just 3 tennis balls, chilling randomly on random blocks of doom.... I bet those balls are having a really interesting conversation over there LOL

Ditto. I'm relatively sure I'll get locked out of my own thread now.

Nice to see such a clear progression. Good incentive for others to start their own books too.

I keep doing this stupid thing where I leave for awhile then come back and only have like, 6 pictures to share. anyway. Here's a print that I can't print out yet because the only local press I know of is at the school. It's on linoleum and it's also not even finished yet.

That whole sideways thing is really annoying. I think changing the file type may help

That seemed to do the trick!
This is as far as I got on the piece before christmas break started. I'll probably finish it soon.

Hi all! I'm back again for 20 minutes for my biannual stop at newgrounds! Here's some stuff I've been up to.

This first thingy was for my final in my painting class. I found out that I had a final in that class two days before it was due, so it was a bit rushed but I still like it. I'm thinking about taking a non-phone picture of it and putting it in my gallery, but we'll see.

I can't get any good photos of my big canvas stuff so I guess that'll be another day.
Anyway, I kinda liked this one.
