I decided to start learning how to ink stuff in Illustrator.  This is a start. I need to get better. I don't know all the tips and tricks. In fact I'm sure I am doing it the hard way.  I still had fun tho.... Keep Rockin!

Here are some quick doodles that I did one day at lunch.  I don't care much for the girl but the others are fun.  Oh well, its not like I don't have a bunch of turds on here already : 0
Here is a fun Pirate guy I want to ink up!!!

Here is a quick example of trying to put more gesture in my drawings.  The top one was my idea forming drawing.  The bottom one still has issues but hold much more emotion.

Whistle Danggggit!!!!!

 So I drew the first face that came to mind and it looked like this:

So then I got the idea of how funny it would be if this guy was trying to whistle?  I was reading this Gesture Drawing for Animation book, by Walt Stanchfield, and he said to make every drawing have emotion and movement.  In other words make it feel alive.  So I decided to try to put this dude in a pose:

 After I did this I felt like it flowed but didn't really have anything unique about it, I felt like my shapes weren't anything special.  So then I did this:

 This one felt really stiff so I decided to make really great shapes and flow:

 After showing my friend Allen he reminded me that I had lost my original gesture!  so I just learned that I need to just draw it right the first time! haha..... not gonna happen.  Anyway, I came out with this last one. I feel much better about it. I feel like I didn't compromise shape but I got much better gesture.  So I learned that keeping my drawing alive involves having nice shapes but also NEEDS GESTURE!  Anyway, cheers duders
