So... I've realized how the numbers of "how I look young" comments have been popping up in my twentieth year of my life. Unfortunately, I haven't passed looking 16. It's quite sad really... If I wear make up I can at least bump it up to 18. Here's a short little mini-board to show what usually happens. True story by the way.
Meanwhile, Luke was really paranoid about the parasites that he might've gotten from petting a sick golden retriever.
On Monday, I had my first costumed figure drawing session, and I had a blast! The model was fantastic because he really looked and acted like a cowboy. My instructor advised us to play around with the character design of the model and to tell our own story through our drawings. This is what I exactly love doing, so it was SO much fun. I gotta admit, it was strange at first because I was so used to drawing people with accurate proportions, but I got the hang of it.

Then onto 5 minute poses:
After awhile, I kinda made a character out of him and I named him Sheriff Bigs.
He's not exactly the kind of sheriff you would like running the town.
He does whatever he wants to do...
Act like the big boss...
And be a ladies man.
Nonetheless, he likes to take his work seriously and does his best to keep things in order.
No one really likes to hang out with him
but he still has his poker nights.
Even though he could be an annoying, cocky, stubborn, mean cowboy, he's a character with a big heart.
Last night, I came back home and saw Yepe super excited to see me. Delighted to see him all cute, I gave him a nice belly rub and soothing petting session until..he decides to pee right in front of the kitchen door....Oy..
While my little cousins were playing Spider Ninja (a game that I concocted to occupy the kids), they asked me to draw them and so I did except I doodled a bit. I drew Love bending over and farting, and then I thought, "What if she farted so hard that she could fly?" Eventually, I turned her into Fart Girl, a crime-solving and butt-kicking super hero. I made a little comic about them (which I will show later) and the kids and I had a blast. Luke was Burp Boy and the kids decided to make costumes for themselves. I gotta say, it was quite an exciting and energetic night.
I've only done Love, I mean, Fart Girl's poster, but once I have time I'll work on
I haven't posted in awhile. There's no internet at the apartment that I'm staying so I apologize for the delay.
Yesterday in my Story Development class, I introduced my characters for my new story "The Magic Elevator". I'll repost what I put on my class blog.
My story is called "The Magic Elevator", and it's about how two children stumble upon a magic elevator that can take them to the land of dreams and no rules, and they discover that there is a way to create a "perfect" world.
Here's the cast of the characters.
This is Love.
She is a nine year old girl who loves to play with her dolls and miniature horses.
She's considered small for her age, but don't let her size fool you.
She is intelligent, snappy, orderly and awfully mature for her age.
She is never prone to making mistakes, but when she does, she gets around them
by her cuteness. Of course, this never works on Luke, her older brother, since
she usually tattle-tales on him.
She can easily be annoyed and become tempermental, hence
her constant arguments and fights with Luke.
Love's playtime is always filled with laughter, dancing, running, jumping, but when
it's time to get serious she can instantly calm herself and think.
Also, rules are rules for Love.
She will do whatever she can to follow them
even if it means to leave the other person behind.
Luke is a ten year old boy, who is the older brother of Love.
Luke is a silly, playful and absent-minded character. The poor boy usually becomes Love's
victim when it comes to getting in trouble. Luke always hopes and strives to be
on his parents' good side, except he can never really
realize what he's doing wrong.
He's very talented at being bold and creative, but
unlike Love, he doesn't know when to be
serious. Both Love and Luke are persistent characters,
however, Luke can get the most persistent especially when he knows
there's something amazing waiting for him. Between the two, Luke has the
biggest heart, and always has good intentions.
This is the Elevator Service Bat. He controls the elevator
