The Academy of Art's Comic Book Club just hosted its traditional end-of-semester costumed figure workshop, and the theme this time was Supervillains!

This past weekend brought us the twice-annual Costume Carnival at the Academy of Art. The theme this time was "Paris in the Spring," which covered basically anything French, from mimes to the Moulin Rouge to Joan of Arc. Here are some sketches from the day-long drawing workshop.
First, Richard Aspen and Marianne Faulkner as mimes, with an exceptionally cooperative cockatoo.
Colin K in Napoleonic attire, and Marianne Faulkner in a cool hat.
Kat Meler as Joan of Arc, Colin K as a brooding emperor, and a bit of classy boudoir style.
Sarafina, the Illustration department's fabulous model coordinator, took a turn in the spotlight.
Eden Omari, swashbuckler.
Once more with the Maid of Orleans...
And "au revoir" with a very special promotional message from the Green Fairy!

A few quick drawings from yesterday. First, poses from the fabled Quick Studies workshop...
I also dropped by George Cwirko-Godycki's Clothed Figure class for a few minutes, and there was some pretty fun costume action going on!

One of the frustrating things about working on film projects is that they take years to complete, and until they come out, you can't show people what you've been working on. Since most of my previous animation storyboarding work is tied up in this fashion, I've been meaning to sit down and create some sample boards so I actually have something to put in my portfolio. So here goes!

It's wacky inking demo time again! These each took about 30-40 minutes, with some ink wash and spatter and such. I didn't end up finger-painting this time, but you can't have everything.
This is, of course, a composite Wizard of Oz companion character made up of part Scarecrow, part Lion, and part Tin Man. He's having some trouble deciding what to ask the Wizard for.
And this, on the other hand, is what you get when you ask your students for subject prompts.

Clearing out the metaphorical basement, I present for your diversion and amusement...
A complete lineup of the Mu Gundam robots so far. All to scale, naturally; man, the Kingdam is really huge.
A silly inking demo for my comics class.
Another silly inking demo. Next week I'll be demonstrating ink wash, spatter, finger-painting, etc, which is always fun; plus, that means I'll probably have time to actually finish the illustrations.
