Sketch Warm Up!

Feeling tired and rusty?  Been a while since you last sketched? Need a pick-me-up, that will get your marker started?  Sketching warm ups are the best way to break that silence between your pen and paper.  It will help your brain visualize your next move and learn to build confident lines.  This technique shown here is most commonly taught at Art Center in Pasadena, and Scott Robertson being the biggest proponent!  I threw on his DVD and did a little sketch warm ups.

Dr. Seuss

I wasn’t lucky enough to have taken the same class that Jon, Alex, Dan and Cres took when they sketched out those dope “creature sketches” that Jon just posted.   I was fortunate enough to have the very same teacher throughout SJSU ID; Prof. John McClusky.   The connection that many of us had with him, was something that fueled the fire to strive beyond the norm.  Good, well informed design was only one of the many passions we picked up from John….Movies, Concept/Entertainment Design, Concept Artist, Sci-Fi, Infinite Futures and much more.  This sketch would be very ….Seussian…in one of Johns great qrit’s!  Thanks so much for the many inspirations John!

I sketched this around the same time JC sketched this creatures…guess it was one of our many late night sketch jam sessions!  Dude, how about that for our Lineweights “events”…Sketch Jam, Sketch Jam…

Dr. Seuss has always been one of my favorites and very influential as a young kid trying to learn to draw…Thanks Theodor Seuss Giesel!DrSuess

Enjoy!

bird flu zombies vs. pig flu zombies!!!

Who would win?  I feel like the aerial attack of the zombie birds would really take the zombie pigs by suprise…but once the pigs got ahold of the birds, they may be no match for the ferousious jaws of the zombie pigs!  Your thoughts?!?!?birdvspigsps…this sketch was inspired by Jon’s amazing Pig Flu Zombies sketch below…if you have not seen it, take a good look!

Tron v. Tr2n (Legacy)

In the spirit of Daniel Simon’s soon to be released concept art on the new Tron 2 sequel, Tr2n…I decided to look back into Daniel Simons biggest influence…Syd “god” Mead’s original Tron concept art and pull from it….the name of that user is….TRON!

The Official trailer is finally live!…. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_jI1j7YVBY&feature=player_embedded
