By the firelight

I haven't had time to go back to carving wood masks as I used to when I was out West. Primarily becuase I do not have a workbench or vice that aid in stabilizing the wood while hollowing it out. While I'm looking to remedy this very soon, it hasn't stopped me form designing masks at all.
Designed here, a Bat and a Fox.
I've finished the blue prints for the bat mask- that will probably be the first or second one I will carve when I get my bench.

Creature Sketches

I recently acquired (thanks to an amazing friend) a sketchbook that has what appears to be a parchment-like paper in it. Both she (my friend) and I bind our own sketchbooks, and this one wasn't doing a thing for her- so she gave it to me.
And I haven't let it go since. I started with sketches of "Amay-rum", and no doubt will do plenty more of other beasties and creatures and the like. :)

Wasgo is a North West Pacific Native American mythological creature that is half wolf, half orca, with three dorsal fins on his back, fins coming out his floggs, and burning red eyes. In legend, these creatures would terrorize the coastal villages, eat orca, and were sometimes reared by the villagers if mistaken for wolf pups [when young].
This is the second time I drew Wasgo. I wanted to do something with dynamic lighting, underwater, and something that would use atmospheric perspective as to have that "dissapearing into the BG" effect.
Lookit! Shiny bubbles! :)

Batman III

Assignment for Life Drawing class.
I didn't know what to do- so I decided to go with a portrait of Michael Caine (one of my fav actors). And then it transformed to this.
Looks like Alfred is doing a good job Mommy-lecturing Bruce about something. Bruce is humored. XD
So much for posting nearly every day. Between work, Aikido, College, and travel, I haven't had a day off in 4 weeks. It was easier when I was working in a studio. >.<
I gotta work on this "posting-every-day" goal of mine. Somehow, I don't think it's gonna happen. XD
