walkin' the dog

I'm up visiting my friend dave rapoza [freelance illustrator, all around badass]. These are some photos I took out on a walk while staying at his place.

For those of you who don't know, dave does a livestream every morning at 9am EST. He does studies/personal work and talks about anything you ask. I was a [not very] special guest this weekend during his streams: Previous streams are available to view.

imagination environments

trying to apply some things that I'm learning from the studies.

these are not quite what i had hoped for, but at least it's a start in the right direction.

more studies are needed :S

another screen recording

actual drawing time was like 25 minutes or so...
iMovie was out of the picture this time, and the end results are much better :P

environment studies

Some environment studies. Starting to get easier...still a struggle

screen recording

I did a quick screen recording while doing some environment studies to work out the kinks...I sure am glad I started with something quick...I've had some trouble figuring out the right settings/compression and I'm stuck with iMovie until I can get ahold of finalcut express...btw for those of you who haven't had the *pleasure* of working with's a right smart pain in the ass.
