     I've been a bit busy lately with a number of projects: hence the lack of posts. In a few days I want to do an article on redline vs blueline vs ordinary pencil and how they impact inking. I just don't have time at the moment.

     Which is not to say that I haven't been sketching. I'm still trying to work on anatomy. It's an ongoing battle...but I keep returning to photo references. They really are the best way to go to get a handle on muscle interaction and foreshortening. 

     The portrait I've posted was done with a photo reference, specifically from the book People and Poses. She's a roleplaying character, but I'm pretty happy with how she turned out. The other drawing was done without a photo reference and there are some pretty glaring errors. It's funny how much a photo improves even a simple sketch.

Sketch Cards!

     Just finished a few more sketch cards which are for sale here. More in the Steampunk Alice in Wonderland theme, as well as one of the Egyptian goddess Isis, and a couple of fantasy themed ones.

It's coming!

     The first Real Life Fiction comic book is almost here! I just got my final version today and it looks good. All I need to do is figure out how to get it listed on ComixPress.

     I'm thinking of having a contest of some kind, with the prize being the first RLF book ever printed, with custom art drawn on the back. Hmmm...
