Here are a couple more aerobic DVD freeze-frame sketches. I decided to throw a little color onto these, just to see how they'd look. We've got one of my favorite models posing for us this Sunday, so look for some interesting drawings come Monday. I think I'll continue to draw directly into the computer on my Wacom tablet during the life drawing class. I've got some idea now as to where I want those headed as well.
Also, look for an update on my new cartooning gig Monday. Hopefully it'll be good news!

My brother is probably the only one who will think that this is funny (other than me of course!) This video is done pretty well. Real simple animation and sound. Props to the Reverend Dave Johnson and his crew. I might rip off their technique for an animation of my own one day soon!
I can usually get about three of these done in 45 minutes, before I drift off to sleep.
I wanted to take a second to thank my newest follower; although, I wouldn't call Craig "new" to this blog. He comments all the time (hint, hint). He also has a really cool blog dedicated exclusively to Sly Stallone. To call this guy a "Stallonaphile" would be an understatement. You should go check it out. Here's a link to this interesting and recently updated site.

This is probably my favorite drawing of the day. It doesn't feel rushed or labored over, and I like that. I was able to concentrate on the muscle structure around the chest and back, and the way the light falls on the figure.
Finally, here's the hour long pose. I worry sometimes that these can get a little "worked over," so I tend to save different versions as I work. That way, I can go back to the one before if I do some thing totally screwed up. It's a good thing too, because I darkened this one WAY too much and ended up going back to a former (better) version.
Look for more editorial and comic illustration posts in the next few days, and let me hear from you!
