GUYS! TOTALLY FINALLY UPDATING MY THREAD!
My camera had died a while back and most of what I uploaded before was older work, but some wonderful wonderful person I barely know decided to lend me a quite decent SLR so I can finally document my work again. Hallelujah.
Anyway, starting off slow with some small pieces from my sketchbook: a drawing of burlesque performer Paco Fish who modeled for a Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School figure drawing session. That was the first one I'd been to- if you've never gone to one I highly recommend them. There's a branch in most major cities (even outside the US), and they're a lot more fun and less academic than most figure sessions- the models wear costumes and you come out with drawings of people in situations that aren't immediately recognizable as being from a figure drawing session. Also, Paco Fish is a delightful performer. He'd started off dressed as a nun and stripped down to what you see below.
Oh, and one more note- I used another sketch from this bit for one of my two newgrounds xmas card exchange thinger. I drew it in red and green pastels so he looks like a transvestite hooker elf and it turned out really shitty but I was too amused to not send it on. I am very curious about its reception. Also, I ought to reteach myself pastels over winter or summer break sometime- I used to be good (was taught properly once) at them but the last couple of times I've tried I think I've skipped over some basic rules.
