A Return to Form

So I am finally drawing on a regular basis again, after a hiatus that was unhealthily long. XP

I've been doing little covers for exams or tests that my mom puts together at her school, and also some character design for a friend who wants me to make a 'Mass-Effect-y' alien for him with various criteria that I have to meet. In general, it's a good way to get started again. To be honest, I feel a certain guilt that I don't draw more. My computer is definitely a large contributing factor to this, and I am trying new tricks to spend less time at the keyboard and more with a pencil in hand. Time will tell if they work.

Test Covers:


Until next time!

A Short Update

So, a lot has happened since my last post!

I went back to South Africa for a week to celebrate the wedding of two good friends of mine - now Andrew and Nikita Rowe. It was a tonne of fun, as I finally got to go home (it'd been nearly 2 years by that point), as well as meet a lot of my old friends, despite the short time I had there (weddings are convenient in that respect).

I came back feeling pretty recharged and with a few new sketches in my book. One of which is below, apologies for the blurriness at the top of the page, my current sketchbook does not agree with the scanner...

In other news, I have been accepted to The Animation Workshop for the 2012 CGA line!! This is extremely exciting and it is incredible to have all my hard work validated! :) I am extremely excited about studying there, not to mention it is simply great to have a pretty simple plan for the next 3 years. :D

I am actually drawing again now, so more stuff should be forthcoming.

Until next time!
