Allopreening Feature
Allopreening is a behavior often seen in a mated pair of birds (allogrooming also occurs in mammal species most notably primates). Allopreening is the mutual preening of another birds feathers. Sometimes the preening will switch back and forth from bird to bird. This behavior can be performed to enhance feather maintenance (keeping feathers clean of parasites) or to strengthen social bonds. The receiver of the preening will often lower their head, fluff out their feathers and in general have an 'Awwmygawh that feels good' look on their face. Birds attached to humans will also preen their humans, either trying to preen their hair, beard, moust

#39: Flights of Fancy by James Gurney
Flights of Fancy by James Gurney, copyright 1996. From Color and Light: A Guide for the Realist Painter, p. 181. This analysis copyright Scott M. McDaniel, 2011 The Image Before I say anything else, if you're an artist you should go buy both of James Gurney's books about painting.  If you like the approach this blog takes to analyzing paintings, you'll love Gurney's approach in these books.  The one this painting is from is Color and Light: A Guide for the Realist Painter, and his first one is Imaginative Realism: How to Paint What Doesn't Exist.  (As a former technical writer I also like the presentation - each topic is a 2-page spread w

I got a DD?! :D
I'm waaayyy behind on my resolution, mostly due to heavy commissions but I discover today that I got a DD on my Fish to Dino Practice animation! :D Whoo-hoo! Kinda makes wish I did a better job, though... :/ There are so many mistakes in it... So as a bonus for everyone who liked the animation, I'm posting the original storyboards and the original model sheets. (Both of which conveniently also work toward my art quota. :3)

New Year's Resolution
I've neglected this account far too much. While it's true that working on artist alley stuff has taken up all my drawing attention, I'm disappointed at how slow my art is improving and I feel I need to work on some art fundamentals in other media (say, media without an "undo" command). I bought several sets of Copic markers a few months ago, and am using them in an attempt to increase my drawing accuracy, to practice planning ahead, to help overcome my perfectionism, and other things. Surprisingly, this is working somewhat and since the volume of my art doodles has increased, I've decided to form a new year's resolution: Every even-numbered

I don't know why it has stuck with me all these years, but I totally remember the Animaniacs/Animoprhiacs song you and your dad made up XD

We're Animorphiacs.
When we see Yeerks they make tracks
Then we morph into a tiger
And eat them all for snacks
We're Animophiacs!

We're Animorphs because one day we met an Andalite
We met him by his spaceship at a 'bandoned building site
Then Visser 3, he showed up
And they began to fight
We're Animorphaics!

lol, that's awesome! XD

I totally remember that song, too, but lately I could only remember "Then we morph into a tiger and eat them all for snacks" part. ^^

I should make a little Flash cartoon with this song and wacky animation...
