Train Sketches

My car died. Indefinitely. This means I spend a lot of time on public transportation. The p.t. system in Los Angeles is an experience. I see some crrrrrazy things on the buses and trains of this city and I always feel like I need to take a shower when I get home.

I am so busy working that I never have time to sketch or figure draw anymore. For this reason I have come to love riding the bus. I draw my fellow commuters.

Most of the time I like to draw the hero in them, bring our their noblest traits.

But not always....

Winged Victory

I found this in my sketch book. I drew it when I was in Paris a couple years ago. I'm not sure I could ever do the original justice. It's soooooooooo cool. One of the most magnificent things I've ever seen.

In college my emphasis was sculpture. Seeing Winged Victory made me want to start sculpting again.

I just realized that in my last post I uploaded an unfinished version of the piece. It's been updated now.

D&D Cards

Last fall I did some art for Wizards of the Coast making some cards for a Dungeons and Dragons card set.  I got two boxes of cards in the mail today. I've opened one box so far looking for my art. No luck. I feel like I'm in Willy Wonka looking for the Golden Ticket.

Hopefully I'll find it eventually. Anyway, here's the art I did for this set. The character is Belgos.

And here's a preliminary sketch.

Gotta go open some more card sets now...
