New Worksheet Soon

Have you been practicing your hatching lines? In EVERY comic or manga that you pick up there will be, somewhere in that book, some hatching lines! I’m making a new video showing how I made the worksheet but, YES, I will have a new worksheet for you soon so you can practice.

I’m also making another hands video. So many people have trouble drawing hands (including me) that I thought I would do a continuing series on it. Some of the videos will be posted on my website and some on my YouTube channel. Unfortunately, I have to watch my storage usage so I flip-flop between the two platforms.

Stay tuned!

Keep Practicing

What’s the best way to get better at something? Practice! I have trouble drawing hands so I’ve started practicing drawing them. I have a “how-to” video uploaded to my YouTube channel. I would put it on this site but I have to watch my GB space. If you’re interested in learning how to draw hands then check it out.youtube

A Great Time with the Girl Scouts!

Believe it or not I was asked to run a comic workshop for a Girl Scout badge bonanza event. I didn’t even know what that was but I figured, why not? It turned out to be a complete blast and a half! I had so much fun teaching the bare (and I mean BARE) basics to two classes of pre-teens. There were girls from all over the state of Arizona. The leader of my particular workshop had everything ready so my part was pretty easy. If you ever get the chance to hang out with the Girl Scouts and do a free workshop – DO IT! You won’t be disappointed.

My First Post in August

Holy cow, I can’t believe it’s already the middle of August and I haven’t posted. Truth be told, my day job kicked in. That’s okay though because I made a different schedule. I’m filming and editing new stuff. In the mean time, here are three more coloring pages. I was able to resurrect an old print of the Silver Surfer!!! I couldn’t believe it. I think I made that print back when the second Fantastic Four movie had come out (before that AWFUL reboot). The anatomy is a little off. I’ve worked on my anatomy and fixed a few things.

Anyway, enjoy!

Have You Been Sketching?

Grab something around your house and start sketching! Why? The practice!!! I teach art at a local elementary school and I’m always, ALWAYS, asked how I learned how to draw. The truth is, you have to keep drawing get better. And that’s how I learned to draw.

As you draw your sketch notice the lines, shapes, and values of the object you are drawing. Pay attention to the little details that define your object. Keep drawing and having an inner dialogue with yourself about the elements of art that make up your object. If you need to refresh your memory about the elements of art awesomeartists.com has some great downloads.
