Counter Terrorist Win!

I had a nostalgic moment with some friends talking about how great (addictive) the days of Counter Strike were. I did this little sketch of one of my slug people in counter terrorist garb.

Practice makes progress

I had a pleasant little breakthrough this morning. While drawing a pose from memory, my curves vs. straights/ squash vs. stretch seemed correct but the pose felt very inauthentic. I've heard it a thousand times to stand up and act out your pose so you actually feel it in your bones and not just in your mind. 
I got up in my pajamas and acted out the pose and suddenly I knew where my weight should be going, were the tension parts of the drawing should be and how the main masses should rotate. I'm not smart/practiced enough to make this stuff up. I re-drew the pose and then it felt authentic, because it was! The bottom left 2 drawing were from memory and then the ones on the right were from after I sill-ily acted them out in my pj's.

My Artistic Development During 2003 - 2005

My first Wacom drawing. I remember how excited, amazed and driven I was when I laid down that first digital line. This drawing of Russel from the Gorillaz was the beginning of my life in digital art.

First year of Art Center, self portrait

This last photo is out of order. It's my messy art studio in high school.

Thanks for checking out my stuff. I figured no one wanted to see what I drew during my teenage angst years so I took them off the internet a long time ago. 

I plugged in some old hard drives recently and found a folder of  my work in it. I'm not embarrassed by this anymore and they actually inspire me to work harder. Thanks :)
