#068 What???

Holy cow, if these were my kids I would lock them in a room with a Japanese language version of the Chronicles of Narnia on audiobook, throw the orange juice away, and not let them out until it was over. These little sugar junkies strangely remind me of chimpanzees - the only difference is, chimp mothers have more control over their offspring, unlike the one in this short advertisement.

Excuse me for this strange diversion. Regular programming continues later.

#067 Futuron Stardefender

Behold! The wonder of the galaxy!!
This sketch was all about the colors this time, and I focused on analyzing the transparencies of the canopy shields. Overall this sketch gets a D-minus, but it was fun and that's what counts. Right?

You can see the actual ship that inspired the drawing after the jump>>>.

#066 Trident-Class

The UPS man finally brought my copy of Painter 11 this week, and oh how I am loving it. The above sketch is my first final painting I have done with it, and I really don't know what the heck I'm doing, but I love what I can do all the same. I received Ryan Church's "Intro to Corel Painter" for Christmas, so I already knew a few things ahead of time. I'm getting ready to take Introduction to Digital Painting in school here in a couple of weeks, so I'm just having fun until the professor shows up!
Also for some of you AFOL's out there (Adult Fan of Lego), you might like to know that this ship (which is strongly reminiscent of a Jedi Starfighter) was inspired by a little model I came up with several months ago. Here it is:

Let me know what you think!
