This week I tried out a new app: Clip Studio Paint on my iPad Pro, and used it entirely. This is the first time in months and months that I’ve begun a sketch digitally, but this is a very nice app to use. I used the desktop version of it a few years ago, but […]
Just as the title says; sketches done for the classes on figure drawing and animal drawing that I’m taking. It’s interesting to learn armature; I didn’t realize just how much easier it would make understanding form.
I’ll be starting two new online courses this week; Animal Drawing and Analytical Figure Drawing from CGMA. I’ve taken their Storyboarding course previously, and found it really helpful- there’s just nothing like having a real (well, alright, virtual) classroom environment and homework and feedback to keep you going when you don’t quite know which way […]
When I was younger, there was only one way of dealing with creative blocks- rage, tear up the page, cry a bit, and then stop trying altogether for days, weeks, sometimes months at a stretch until I fell into flow and picked back up. But one of the better things about growing up and growing […]

My Google Pixel phone is barely trudging along, and with the release of the new long awaited iPad Pro’s, I don’t have enough saved up to spend lavishly on a new flagship phone, too. I was fretting about my options, since I take photos of all my sketches with my phone because of its great […]
Just trying to get more of these out before the month is out.
I love working in pen and ink all the year round, so the concept of one month dedicated to ink drawing is a bit odd to me. But since it is Inktober October, I’ll try and do mostly ink sketches for the remainder of the month. I’ve spoken about my favourite pens before, but I’ll […]
