This is WAY from done - but I thought I'd post some progress on this. Still in progress but the last few weeks have been uncommonly busy. Missing a good junk in the middle that I'm still filling in.

I had these thumbnails for a while - and after a very exhausting week I wanted anything different.

Some how it turned into a week of Wonder-Woman...which is not a bad thing. Last week I had Claudio and then Khadijah for my gesture drawing class....

WonderWoman ANM 001 from scotland barnes on Vimeo. I was intending to do this but I needed to make a quick example of a sequence for my gesture class. Funny enough I had a sequence that a model had done for me wearing an Wonder-Woman outfit. Here's about three passes at the keys in Photoshop.

Long Couple of Days - Wonder Woman Set For a Fight


It was one of those awful book keeping days. And it was preceded by a rough week and a short weekend...and there's still email to do....bleh.....

At the end of the day - just had to sketch out my frustration....

Gesture Drawing with Kat

I lucked out today and got to work with Kat as my model in my gesture drawing class at the Academy. These were some of my demo drawings....
Warm up drawing...


Always a challenge to get students to draw laying down poses - even when in profile.

Trying to see larger overall shapes...


Here I was trying to prove the point that you can draw the model anyway you want. If it's a girl - you can draw her as a guy, and guys can be drawn as girls. What matters is what does the pose say to you?

Yeah - any chance to draw Kat as Aurora....

Daring Monkey Origins...

Not really sure how this happen - the assignment was to do a story of Steve Bushemi, on an island with a key. What the story turned into was an origin story for my "Daring Monkey Adventures" characters of Maribelle and Scheckey.  It probably was due to my wish to see Steve Bushemi in a Peter Lorre-esque role....You just can't avoid somethings.....
