sketchbook madness

Hi, hello!
School has calmed down a LITTLE bit- but I am using my free time to get homework done ahead of time. And when I'm not doing that I'm sleeping(!?!?!) or doodling in my sketchbook. I've been trying to play around with style a bit- see what comes most naturally and comfortably to me, cause I can always recognize when I have drawn something, but there are so many different ways to draw that really interest me, so sometimes I try and adapt a little bit.
"apathy" pen and ink
 sometimes when trying to draw from life, I notice certain looks about this guy in my noir lit class. So I drew him. (No, I'm not creepy at all...!)
"across the room" pen
I PROMISE I will put more school work up soon, but there's some stuff I want to revise first, so I can make it the best it can be. I also dedicated a sketch page mostly to WORKING ON LIGHTING. Cause I need to. Also I drew someone's dad cause I liked his vibe.
sketch page- form, volume, lighting
That's all for now, thank you for stopping by! <3 <3
Til next time~

Bad news: "Another Saturday night cause I ain't got nobody"
(which I suppose is just as well because I really don't have any money...)
Better news: I was really productive! YES!

I spent most of my day resting up from midterms, but that included editing and posting THIS VIDEO, making this (and sticking it on my bedroom door):

I took break for a little while, but wouldn't you know it- I did some work after! :D I'm really excited about the 3 page comic I'm doing for Nolan's class. Looking forward to getting more done on it tomorrow. When it's done, I'll post it up here. But it's not due for another month. I might make a cover too... so far, I've just got these panels:
Yay! And if they look messy, it's because they're supposed to. I need to make them a bit more exaggerated but first I wanted to make sure they all fit in the space, so I'll just go over it in brush pen again. I was also considering putting some ink splatter on there to give it a more imperfect, homemade look, but didn't know how to make it look unintentional. And then, some inky water spilled a bit and got on my new panels. Well, they're unintentional alright! ;) perfect timing, ink gods. Thank you.
I can definitely work with them. Hopefully the mild mess will come across as more personal. We'll see how it goes! But, worse comes to worse, I redraw them. 
Sorry about the poor quality of the photos. I don't have access to a scanner at the moment, and then after the first picture my camera died. So I was left with the webcam. I just just really pumped up about the work I did, so I wanted to share asap!

Til next time :) Thanks for stopping in! <3

Hisssss! (and midterms and sickness)

Midterms are still happening, and I am also getting re-sick after having had recovered. :/
Next post, I think I will put up a few of the projects I have done for school- just to show something other than sketchbook work.
For now though, Have a comic based off of this conversation:
 the comic:
 it provided many lolz for the people involved.
In case you don't find that lolzy, here's another art.

GENERATE! and my birthday

Hello there! Sept. 30th was GENERATE! at SCAD- a 24 hour art extravaganza- inspired by the 24 hour comics fest. I was there for a good 12 hours of it, and it was a great experience! Looking forward to next year already- hopefully I can do the whole thing next time!
I tried out one of the challenges- redesign the new DC 52. I tried my hand at these lovelies:
Indie Superhero ladies! Done in watercolor
Someone said they looked like if the stories took place in Portland, OR rather than Metropolis XD I liked it. Gives me good ideas.
ALSO, I was featured with my friend Megan on the Temple of Cartoon Mojo BLOG ! Check it out.
While I was there, I redid my "bitch" comic as well:
Colored with prisma color markers
YAY! Finally. Quite a different from: THE ORIGINAL

AAAAAND- today is my birthday! Yay! At school getting work done- but looking forward to tonight :D Another year older...I should make a comic about it.
Thanks for stopping by!
