mini failures and mini successes

So here's a couple pictures relating to the prior post about making a sign for a comics section that was supposed to wrap around a wall. In the end, I did get to make the sign, which I thought turned out pretty well, aside from the easter-egg colors that ended up coming out when I tried to paint with wet acrylics on foam core. I felt that it didn't work, so posted with it is what I would have done had I planned better. Next time!

On the upside, I got to ink it with a sumi brush. That stuff is so much fun to play with!

Here's what I'm choosing as the screen shot for the Dusty's book, thought this might be a good time to finally start putting some thesis stuff up. I think this is final color, but I'll probably use some textures. This still feels too bare for me.

I've done about 6 months on my thesis so far, and have a frightening two months left. It's time for some prayers...

Hope you like!

Phoenix airport

If you can't tell, I'm really trying to post a lot more lately to keep myself working on different things. That's why I'm trying to work with color and textures in more recent pictures, which I'll try to post more of soon. I'm somewhat new to textures these days, so if this is too much, let me know! This one was when I was waiting for a plane in the Phoenix airport for 3 hours, because of inclement weather in Denver. Seems like every time I travel I get stuck somewhere, but I'm getting used to pulling out my sketchbook at these times, and kind of starting to enjoy this forced people-drawing time.
