Is tracing cheating?

I drew this for this week's theme at Illustration Friday—Run. There are some anatomy issues with the guy, I know, but it was a fun experiment.

Hey sup people! Its sunday and it feels so damn good. Catching up on some work. Came across some more old design work. I still like this character. I think the simplistic design would work well with animation. I have no tests of this dude. But looking at it now reminds me of what style of animation I was considering at the time. I remember wanting to design some simple characters that would allow me to really exaggerate porportions during motion. (Spaghetti arms and dynamic volume) I think I have some other tests with another character. If I have time I'll see if I can find em and post them up. Meanwhile... Its back to the mutha suckin grind mayne.

New Jam Idea!
Me and Jamal went to Apache last night to do some life drawing. The turnout was cool. Not too crowded or vice versa. Took me a minute to warm up to it again plus I didn't have a big sketchbook. I started getting into it once they started to shut the light off. Now I am fiending to do more. I needed to get back to drawing from life . . . it's necessary.

First Day Of Old School!
This is my memory of the first day of school. You know, feeling alone, nervous. I went to school back in the day (early 70's) so clothes were mad corny! LOL! I don't remember what I really wore but believe me it was wack! This drawing is not really me but a facsimile thereof (I'm serious . . . it's not me!). Haha! My head was big but not that big. As far as the graff on the walls, I just put that in the drawing 'cause I can't resist hitting up on a blank wall in my illustrations sometimes!
Oh yeah, check out the "Land of the Giants" lunchbox. Anybody remember that show? It was the booooommmb!
I saved the step-by-steps this time for everybody.
Basically, I sketched it with a blue colored pencil, scanned it and painted in photoshop. It took me a few hours to paint but I tried not to get too detailed.
Hope ya likes.
Quick Jam pic
Here is like a 10 min pic I did. The story behind this is that back in the 8th or 9th grade me and my best friend were going to get poke a dot outfits like we saw the rappers wearing on yo!MTV raps. I get to school and my boy didn't get his and I wore mine the first day of school and everybody laughed their asses off. I never wore that outfit again but of course a few weeks later people started wearing theirs once Kwame blew up.

Dawud got my art juices flowing
I've been looking at alot of Adam Hughes Artwork the last few days. I got tons of sketches that he's done over the years. The man is a comic book God. I've always liked his line work and the way he draws women. Anyway I did this over the weekend after looking at some of his stuff. How can you not get the juices pumping after seeing his artwork. Plus that last post by Dawud got me going again also.

for all the graff heads

I just did this rough piece today since I had a little downtime at work. I did the rough from a model pic of a friend named Stacy. This will be the first in a series that I plan to do. I want to keep them loose and quick. That is how I prefer to work so I will work on refining my own style. As you can see I started with a prismacolor drawing and then I scanned it and desaturated the colors to black and white. I then colored it in photoshop. Bam!
Have a great weekend y'all!
