Starting Gnomon!

Starting Gnomon!

Oh man, so stoked. I'm enrolled at the Gnomon School of Visual Effects in Hollywood http://www.gnomonschool.com/ . The open house is tomorrow morning, and next week, I start Figure Drawing, Perspective, Visual Communication, and Overview of VFX and Games. I'll update with art I do there as much as possible, given the inevitably massive workload. It's going to be quite a ride!

I had a dream last night

I had a dream last night

Someone on DeviantART had already drawn an idea I'd been thinking about for ages. Guess I'd better draw and post it, lest my dream come true. ...There was also a part where Carlos Mencia was Iron Man, but he only spoke Spanish and his mother ran a burrito stand which served custom burritos that got bigger as you ate them. I REALLY hope that part doesn't come true.

Great Job DeviantART

Great Job DeviantART

Well this is cool. Apparently, if I make a certain number of comments on people's pages in a day, DeviantART decides I'm a spammer! Sorry everybody, looks like it'll take me longer than I thought to respond to all your comments/faves/watches from during my extended absence (Damn, like a year and a half now, isn't it?). Bear with me, y'all. EDIT: Oh wait, if I just wait an hour and then come back, deviantart trusts me again. Which is good news for me, but kind of makes me suspicious of how easy it might be for actual spammers to go undetected. Ahem, can't have your cake and eat it too, I suppose. Anyway, false alarm!
