So there.

Watch Me Draw 2: Draw Harder

Watch me do my thing.

I've had this line stuck in my head for the last couple of days.

Hulk + BBWW

A Hulk illustration I decided to stop working on.
And some fat Wonder Woman sketches for a piece i plan on working on once i finish up my other piece.

Started working on one of the sketches yesterday. This is the color mock up of the piece so far.

Also, Lupe Fiasco's The Cool is pretty awesome I must say. Better than Food & Liquor? Only time will tell.

Some Bond-esque women. I very much enjoy the one with the guns. The other is the start to a personal piece I'm working on for portfolio reasons.

Back to sketchin'

I'm starting to wonder if doing a sketch a day for this blog is better or worse than changing the format to a finished illustration every 2-3 days. The problem with the latter idea is the high possibility of falling off schedule.

Something to ponder.

Only 10 more. Get em while they're hot.

In other news, Hajime no Ippo (i.e. the boxing manga I've been reading for the past couple of months) is amazing. The last couple of chapters dealt with Ippo finally facing Sendou for the japanese title belt. What a fantastically drawn and scripted fight.

For Serious.

Apparently Raekwon & Ghostface dislike the new Wu Tang Album. Mostly due to RZA's production. Ghostface went so far as to call it "wack".

My opinion will be formed later when I listen to it in it's entirety.

The new Lupe Fiasco album is gonna be awesome. The singles that have been released so far make me smile.

I loves me some Lupe. He also has an awesome fashion sense.

Been on an NES kick as of late. Emulators help satisfy this. Little Nemo is ridiculously hard. As is Kid Icarus. Thank god for save state.

I've been feeling the need to exaggerate the figure more and more in hopes of better understanding the muscle groups and such. This may be a theme for the next several days.

Highlights on the past week:
Scott Pilgrim is awesome. Jay-Z's American Gangster is more great than bad. Frank Quitely is a genius of subtlety. World War Hulk was a letdown. And now I'm goin to watch Freaks & Geeks.
