I'll throw a barrel at 'em!!

I did this drawing based off of a Kristin Kruek photo for March's Drawing Jam. Doesn't look like her, but it was a great pose. I'm happy with this one, all except for the fact that you should see her right knee, but you don't.
Here's another Kristin Kruek. Again, doesn't look like her but I wasn't going for likeness. Just using her photo as a base. I kind of gave her that 'are you done?' look. I like this one because the original was HUGE. I'm trying to get used to drawing larger and larger in Photoshop to get better quality lines, and more detail.


Just found this sketch of Brock Samson I did a while back. I never liked it enough to finish it. There's a lack of energy in the pose, and he doesn't really look too much like Brock. I love it when guys throw barrels at things, though, so I figured I'd post it anyway.


...and I just wanted to say thank you to everyone leaving comments in my blog. Family members, friends, colleagues, and folks from the Drawing Board and Blogspot communities....hell, everyone. It makes me feel great that you guys care enough to drop a comment every now and then. it gives me incentive to keep on drawing when I hit that inevitable wall of creative nothingness. Sometimes the only way to get through a block is the encouragement of others. Thank you.

Fantastic expressions on both Kruek pieces. Always great work.

Nice! I really like how solid (dimensional) yet fluid your characters look. I'm sure I've probably said that before in another post, but what the hell!

I also find blogging to be very motivating. Once I started tracking how many people read my blog I was even more motivated! It's nice to get feedback, crits and criticisms from other talented people in the cartoon industry.
