sometimes i draw real sketchy stuff. it's possible it could be clear, but a lot of the time it lacks, to me, an original appeal. that's something i defenitely want to work on. no worries though. nevertheless, it's tons of fun. also, the idea of using just two shades of markers to complete the sketch is enjoyable. cheers!

you should thank God for being alive today! just do it!

yet another piece of digital dookie

i woke up early this morning because me and jason are going to the Timpanogos caves, so i had to call and make sure they were open today. then, i couldn't go back to sleep. lied in bed for an hour, then woke up to paint the really well lit room that we're staying in. like i said before, i don't do much digital painting, this is my first round of paintings i've actually done, so i'm still learning. it's lots of fun to try and get the lighting right, the texture, the mood, and a sense of design. once i get an idea about how to lay color down and make it look accurate, i'll try and apply a better sense of design and cool shapes because that to me is really important. yup yup!!! cheers

p.s. thanks to Tom, who i share an office with. he's kind enough to show me a few tricks in Photoshop. hopefully i'll catch up to him some day. keep growing Tom. leave me choking on the dust particle trails you leave behind.

new book...new stuff!

there's something funny about starting a new sketchbook...the first page somehow intimidates you for no reason at all. why do people feel compelled to make the first page look their absolute best. IT'S A SKETCHBOOK FOLKS! i'm a hypocrite of these words, sadly enough. i tore the first page out, mostly because of anger and just being annoyed by the things around me at the time. i think what it is is the fact that annoying people who seem all too satisfied with life come up to you with that "let's see if i'm better than you" attitude and ask to look through your book. thus, having a great first page would hopefully shut them up and make them feel stupid. YUP! my goal is to make people feel dumb; that's the ultimate purpose for this new sketchbook. conclusion...i'll tear out hundreds of pages before i get that amazing first page just so the people who look through it can be put to shame. thank you God for this new meaning in life!!! i am so forever thankful.

i found that i've sinned. my first page reeks badly, everyone around me is much much better...so now i'm gong to hell. sorry i failed you o God.

here's some random stuff in my book...NOT starting at the first page...............
