After participating in the Splatoon Global Testfire with my son, I thought it would be fun to try my hand at Nintendo's Splatoon contest.
If you've worked with DotNetNuke for any length of time, I'm sure you're familiar with the very handy option of being able to display a module on every page of your website. This feature works great for...
Yesterday marked a very sad day in our household. We had to say goodbye to a very good friend and the best cat I have ever had. Her name was Popcorn and she was an absolute sweetheart. She saw me through a lot of really hard times over the past 11 years and will be greatly missed.
Rest in peace my sweet little kitten. You brought me more joy, love, and happiness than you could ever know. Thank you.
As promised... the recently re-designed yoooee.com is live! Built from the ground up with responsiveness in mind, running the latest version of DotNetNuke with a freshly upgraded blog module, all nicely snuggled together on Windows Azure! It's been a lot of hard work and a few late
nights, but I am pleased with the results and hope that you enjoy them
as well. Feel free to leave a comment with your thoughts.
Oh... and have a look around! Check out the site on your favorite mobile device.
Yeah... it's been awhile. I've been busy and I'll be happy to share more about that in the coming months. For now, just know that I have been hard at work on a new design for yoooee.com. I've still got a little more polishing and fine-tuning to do, but the site will be up very soon.
Yesterday marked the completion of an entire year of drawing the figure daily. I used the Jerry Seinfeld method of productivity with the calendar to the right. Every day I was able to draw, I placed a red x on the calendar. Whether it was drawing through nearly a 104 fever, or waking up and drawing at 6:00 am, or drawing after driving for 10 hours... somehow, I managed to draw every day for the past year.
Feet, feet, and more feet! A sample of the numerous feet drawn over the last two months of the year.
After much study, the legs are complete. There are a crazy number of muscles throughout the leg so a lot of effort was placed on anatomy and muscle structure. The feet are all that remain as I close out this full year of drawing. I can almost see the finish line!
A very small sampling of the many hands that were drawn over the months of July and August. I will be using the remainder of the year to focus on the legs and feet.
The months of May and June were spent studying the arms. A lot of time was spent on the anatomy of the arm and I can now easily tell you were your Extensor Carpi Radialis Longus is located!
The second month of anatomy studies focusing on the torso is completed. Onto the arms.
Above are a few of the different torso studies of the figure I've done for the month of March.
Fantastically creative video on figure drawing. Originally viewed on James Gurney's Gurney Journey blog.
I'm happy to say that the small sampling of images above are a result of drawing every day for the first two months of the year. January and February were spent focusing on the head, neck, and facial features. A big thanks goes out to an extremely talented artist and teacher, Stan Prokopenko over at Proko.com. He's got some really great videos on the head and facial features that are definitely worth a look.
A few gestures done at the beginning of the month at my local drawing and painting meetup. Worked with colored pencils, graphite, and a Sharpie Brush Tip marker.
