Cupid has a magnum
So run, run, run
Don't let yourself get caught
Trust me it won't be fun

The cardiac hitman
never misses his targets
so don't get tripped up on civility
you'll end up with regrets
Chasms yawn like so many hungry throats
wanting to be fed
why is it
that when something wants to eat something else ends up dead?
Poses 150-154 by legomaestro
Poses 150-154

Just an update. I'm actually on 160, and hopefully I'll hit 200 in two days or so ~

Trying out for some horizontal poses here because I truly suck at them. I'll be foraying into references soon for little tips and tricks on how to build them, but otherwise it was a pretty comfortable session drawing these. Just had music in the background and I can feel myself getting more comfortable making the figures...

Finally rewarmed my arting muscles enough to get into drawing and writing again. Drawing has been going great, because I and a friend (FreeSpiritedMind) have joined forces to sketch/draw 1000 stickfigures/mannequins as a basic lesson in fundamentals and proportions.

Earlier I went through an entire book by Andrew Loomis and while I did pick up lot's of things and didn't skim on most of the exercises (the perspective topic at the last part were a monumental pain) I didn't do much actual hands on drawing from my mind. I've improved a bit when it comes to drawing from a photograph but drawing comics one day I realized how difficult it was for me to apply any of what I'd been doing. Hence the decision to train my mind and hand to make its own poses.

I'm up to 150 by now, and it's been quite fun to do. I want to reach a stage where I look at my first stick figures and feel comfortable throwing them away because I can do better. I'm just glad that it's going well.





The writing bit has suffered though. I have found more time to read and review other works, which is definitely a breakthrough, but writing has been problematic because I have so much i want to do. My solution will be crude and simple as always: Write with wreckless abandon.

First drafts are destined to be sucky, so I hope to polish up whatever messes I create, but I'm definitely jumping into the hot seat again while I can.


Cheers!
