tricks and treats

The other day I began drawing a girl in a halloween costume. Don't really know why, just felt like it. And of course she had to have a friend so I drew another one. Before I knew it, I had sketched out quite a few. And now I have a complete set of 12.

So instead of stashing 'em away to never see the light of day again, which is what usually happens during one of my artistic whims, I decided to see what a couple of them would look like all "illustratored" out. That's a word, right?

I think I've got the momentum to finish them all, maybe even add some kind of background or whatever. Here's hoping I can finish it before next Tuesday. Why next Tuesday you ask? Because that's when Halo 3 drops. And once I get my hands on that precious little disc you'll be damn lucky to see me post here again sometime before next spring. Okay, that's a lie. I do have some self-control. Okay, that's another lie.

illustration friday: momentum

Looks like it's been exactly six months since I last participated in an illfriday theme. Figured I'd get back into the swing of things by trying something a bit different. My weapon of choice has always been Illustrator, but I've also been quite fascinated and frustrated with what Flash has to offer. So I thought I'd give that program another shot. Though it feels like everything I've ever learned with Illustrator had to be thrown right out the window. As if I'm learning to draw all over again, but with my left butt cheek. After a few hours of fumbling around, I think I've stumbled onto something quite refreshing. Stay tuned for more experimental goodness and mishaps.
