The Day After Yesterday

A semi regular schedule of posting?!?! Sure why not. "Shoot the moon!", that's my motto. Especially when playing spades. Nope wait, I'm more a blind nil guy. Probably not when I'm first to bid. 3rd or 4th sure, but a blind nil from 1st? So reckless!!! And fun!!!  Anywho, sketches!!!!

It goes another round of GoT sketches.....not the greatest, but you can tell who they are.....except the 3 who aren't main characters. Oh and the ones on notebook paper are from a cafe. Not quite confident in hitting gesture drawing still so it's mostly people who were hanging out for a minute or two. Only one seemed to catch on I was sketching them.......or creepily staring at them, which isn't exactly mutually exclusive. Maybe next time!!! If I develop a taste for coffee that is!!!

Back again!.....AGAIN!!!!!

Man, what a crazy year. So to sum up, I think it went dog surgery, various electronics breaking, big things falling off car, AM animals and creatures (amazing!), interview for rigging job, dilapidating sickness, snow dog sculpture, daily sketches/art lesson, snow bear sculpture, Pixar animation job interview!!, mom breaks her arm exactly 3 hours later, helping out with that for a month, pixar rejection email, various guest lecturers and comedians betwixt much of those.

The Pixar interview was easily the highlight. A couple of friends who also got in said it felt more like a meet and greet than an actual interview. It did seem that way a bit, but I enjoyed every bit of it. I definitely overstayed my welcome, hanging out with some friends before their interviews :P I was just too excited. During the interview I asked what I could do to improve my reel and paraphrasing he said that my physicality has a solid foundation(thank you AM), but I could really work on my acting. I could see what the animator was saying so lately I've just been looking for amazing acting in audio clips. I'm probably being too picky, but just grabbing the first piece of audio that pops up to animate up a new reel in record time seems misdirected. I'm gonna try to find a Hanks clip I like.

Oh, but yes, sketchbloginess. Since I started daily sketches, I'm at 120 pages. However, a lot of them are just trying to copy images from art books or paintings. I've got to say Mucha has probably been my favorite. That being said, not being original interpretations or anything, I wouldn't feel comfortable posting them to the blog. The stuff from TV however, sure why not. First 2 pages from some sitcom.....the rest are Game of Throney. There are some gesture drawing attempts. Not the greatest sketches, but their all steps forward.
