Finding my Pencil Zen

Lately I've been out of touch with my Pencil Zen. Sketching and drawing almost seem like a distant friend, who in times past we would have great sleep overs, telling ghost stories and building forts! And now, it's more like we talk on occasion, but never indulge in the great pleasures of old.

So what I have done to reconcile my friend and I, I have joined a great site called
They have some great drawing tutorials and great teachers from various fields in the industry.
Below, I have attempted to get my groove back and practice eyes. The instruction behind these eyes came from one of the great teachers at named Sycra Yasin, who is a fantastic artist.

Well for now, my pencil are at least on speaking terms, but with time and hope, we will be building forts and TPing the neighbors house in no time!

Long Time No Post

Wow, it's been a bit since I've posted anything. Apparently I have been extremely busy or extremely lazy... actually a little bit of both.
Anywho, I've decided to post some models I have made as of late. Recently there was a contest from 3D Artist Mag to design your own toy pet monster. And the winner of the competition actually will win a 3D printer from MakerBot. So of course I had to enter being that I have an extensive collection of designer toys.

First I made my Pug monster pet. So cute and innocent from the front, hideous monster in the back. I find this true with real life pugs as well. Someone actually printed this one out, you can see that here.

The second one I made I really was having fun with form. I made the Clumsy  Baby Dragon. He looks really bent and broken , but he was designed so he can stand and is completely balanced. I really would like this one to be printed because it melts my heart every time I look at it.

The winners are yet to be announced but I will keep you posted.

I will also try to blog more in  general...
