Sketcher 2 testing!

The new version of the online applet sketcher is up and available to test out if you're a member of the site. I couldn't resist popping in and checking out the amazing new settings for the brushes! There are still a few bugs to it but I have to say, Thor's done an amazing job with it. it has the ability to save six brushes per user and has a grand total of 5 available layers to draw on. But I'm sure you will find out all about it later, haha.

What better a thing to draw then a disco dancing monkey to celebrate such fun and interesting brushes? Enjoy!

Onto the practice of human anatomy!...Well soon enough anyway, I plan on creative a study of human figures over the summer and keeping it in a folder/book of some description. I'll be sitting around various spots in Edinburgh and sketching out things when the weather agrees. That is if my plan comes together or not, but I'll be doing my damnedest to make it happen!

For this occasion I have complied a few rough sketches of a human head, but bare in mind people I suck at realism, and this is from memory. No refs were used at all so they're, well, like I said. Rough.

Okay so I've been a very very busy person the last few weeks. So much has happened in such a short space of time it is unbelievable. I'll start in order I suppose, of how my life has somehow changed.

So I've almost finished all of my finals, one more to go and I'm completely free of what I can safely say has been my worst year ever. Then again I'm not the only one who feels this, a lot of my year do. S5 is a Hell hole. But it's now when you realise that you've only got one year to go before you split from High School and either go to College, start working as an apprentice, or go onto University.Scary stuff, but I'm sure we all know that already.

And onto the next big thing that's happened, I have resigned my place as administrator upon that art site I've waffled on about before. It came to the point that the community has changed from what I am used to, and that my job was no longer a pleasure but a chore.So I've packed up my art and moved else where, this may give me more time to update this place. It is the only thing I give attention to anymore hehe. This also doesn't mean I'm finished with being an admin in general, I have been approached elsewhere for the job. It's kinda nice to have people trust you as much as that, it really blew me away.

I have also packed up my art over at Deviant Art, I have no real reason why I have. I just feel it is time for a change.It's not like I updated much over there anyway, so I'm sure it won't matter.

It's odd because I feel more free than I have in a very long time, though it has to be said it's also overwhelming.

I haven't drawn a lot of decent art in a while either, with the finals being at my heels and all. But I have doodled up this little cute-thing that makes me want to combust from sheer terror. Please enjoy!

I've been wanting to doodle up the Delightful Children for a long time now, so hopefully my next blog will have some of them on it. Not promises though.

Okay so I've been a busy body with loads of School work deadlines but the majority is done! I've finally finished all my art course work and it's being sent off to the SQA. I'll not hear another word about it until my exam results come back to me and that's a long time away. Now all I need to do is take all my exams over the next month or so and it'll be relax time. But, I do get to have a little more artistic freedom for a few days so I wandered around looking out for ideas.A request ended up falling into my lap so I attempted it. The request was to draw a picture of Mephiles the Hedgehog, a character from one of the newer Sonic games I presume. I haven't played any of them so I have no clue who he is.He was fun to doodle though!
