female characters

im back a week late and a buck short, but ill try and make up for it with extra drawings. lately ive been trying to work on getting more comfortable drawing female characters. its a bit of a hole in my portfolio right now, that i hope to correct.
these are mostly drawings ive done to loosen up before getting down to business at my day job (ive been working at an animation studio doing location design).

the grass always looks greener in other departments. ive never worked as a character designer but ive always wanted to try it. unfortunately once you start your career in one direction you tend to get type cast. not that i dont enjoy location design, id just like to spread my wings alittle. so the above pic is an attempt at a portrait of one of my new studio mates , perry. who was to one who motivated to start this blog in the first place.

and this last illustration is one of a handful of pics i did last week. ive tried to keep myself working as an illustrator after hours. the extra money helps but mostly i dont want to lose the momentum i felt i had going this last year drawing comic books.

first post

hello interweb. thank you for accepting me to your blogging club. im excited to get things rolling here, so ill keep this brief for tonight. my plan for this ride on the art blog band wagon is the same as everyones. to show my drawings and ideas to anyone interested , to get some feedback and hopefully alittle helpful criticism, and to keep myself motivated.
to get started ive posted a handful of pics from my portfolio and sketchbook. the dr strange piece was done with the blog in mind but the rest are just odds and ends. most are work ive done in the last 6 months to a year.
i ll try and post at least once a week, so check back in soon, or dont,... whatever.......please come back.
