Steph -- 12/31/08 -- a handgun



Ohhhh Niiiiiiick.... where are your drawings?? I know it's New Year's Eve -- you're probably out having fun instead of being totally dedicated to your art (and let's not talk about what it says about my social life that I'm posting at 10:30 on NYE....ahem.)

Steph -- 12/28/08 -- a boat and a weird distorted boat


I don't like boats. They're totally unappealing to me. I only went sailing once in my life (last year) and got sick. Bleh. But I thought I should learn how to draw them anyway.

On second thought, I do like kayaks and canoes. Airboats can be fun. Just not big boats.

Steph -- 12/27/08 -- a bowl and a cup


The most wonderful thing I just learned in Photoshop is "actions." Oh my god, the time I'm going to save!

Steph -- 12/26/08 -- government agents


I was experimenting with character designs for a government agent (Department of Regulatory Conformity/DoRC), who will appear in Minimum Security in late January. I decided on glasses because I'd rather have him look blank and generic than mean. The Spy-vs-Spy reference was a miss. The one I ended up choosing is in the top left corner.

Steph -- 12/24/08 -- tiki people and animals including bat, and plants


This was inspired by the statues in the garden of the Mai-Kai, a Polynesian restaurant that my brother and mom and I went to the night before. I love drawing all kinds of shapes of heads and bodies.

Steph -- 12/24/08 -- a lamp on a table with window


I messed up the legs of the table, and part of the trellis. But I like how the window panes and crank came out.

Steph -- 12/23/08 -- reading glasses


This looked okay with the glasses vertical, but then I turned it sideways and realized one side is much smaller than the other.

Steph -- 12/21/08 -- a palm tree

Steph -- 12/21/08 -- palm fronds


A tree in my mom's back yard.

Steph -- 12/21/08 -- horse, bull and mouse play poker



I like the animals and their flexible arms. I forgot to make the cards for the mouse the same size instead of proportional. It would have been funnier if they were big.
