Countdown to my last drawing of 2008 - I learned/grew a tremendous amount this year. Almost like night and day.

I think I will draw lots of images just before the ball drops...

Weekly Sketch Jam : the DJ!

New Weekly Sketch Jam! The DJ. The Disc Jockey. Although many DJ's are using laptop filled with MP3's and mixing software some actually still used plastic discs called phonographs. Interpret the theme however you see fit.

"The level of completion can be anything from a rough to a finished rendering. This blog . . . an opportunity to challenge one another, to challenge ourselves and to connect . . ."

Commercial Illustration in Photoshop

Here's a video I posted on you tube which somewhat describes the way I work professionally. I had to shorten and edit it down to fit the time limits. Check the music too!

This was originally supposed to be an animated piece, but since I didn't have time I just decided to post 1 frame of the animated gif. I may work out the final animated piece, I may not. I posted a cheesy version on my blog.

no, it's not Balrog

sketch of Iron Mike Tyson by samax (for the Fighters SketchJam). watercolor brush pens.
i've never been all that big into fighting, but you didn't need to be to dig Iron Mike when i was comin' up! he was like a super hero (or villain, depending on how you look at it...) knocking professional fighters unconscious before the popcorn was even ready! every comedian mentioned him... he had rappers writing songs about him... not the greatest boxer ever, but my personal favorite!

Weekly Sketch Jam: Fighter

There hasn't been a weekly challenge here in a long minute. Who's ready to step up and have fun?? In the spirit of competition and this huge fight month, let's try our hands at a fighter. Choose any discipline like boxing, kickboxing, MMA, muay thai,  san shou, karate, judo, jui-jitsu,  tae kwon do, wrestling, capoeira or even Krav Maga it doesn't matter. Hopefully this old never finished work-in-progress of Quinton Jackson will inspire you to get busy.

Participation is not required but always encouraged, can we get more than 3-4 drops? There's only 1 rule for this Sketch Jam. Please make sure you label your post sketch jam and fighter . . . for organizational purposes. And can we end this 'weekly sketch jam' this coming Sunday?

Drawing Love

What's up! This is Vee of Scritch and Scratch!! I'm up for the weekly challenges. I'm interested in sharing ideas and hearing some constructive critiques, etc. Here's a quickie I put together. It's an after work drawing from reference. It could have been better and tighter, but I usually like to keep these pieces loose and fun.

As always check out my blog its actually updated frequently. So I will definitely post here often and try to bring some fire.
