Big thanks to everyone who stopped by my table at the SciFi Expo this past weekend. I had a great time and did a bunch of drawings. Thanks to Mark and Ben for having me.

The Baroness

I always dug her, so I thought it would be fun to draw her. And I was right. This is big 11' x 17" piece, I like how it turned out. I've decided to attempt to produce more ambitious "high end" drawings. Large format, filling the page, more detailed, yet still cartoony. I used to draw stuff that was a lot more detailed than what I do now, and I've had the urge lately to attempt to merge the two styles a bit and see what I can do. I'm also thinking about putting stuff up on eBay. Anyway, hope you like it.

Austin Browncoats Charity Drawings

Here are a couple of new ones I'm donating to the Austin Browncoats for one of their charity auctions. It's Wash and Jayne from Firefly in case you have no idea who these people are.

Last week in school

I will be going home in two weeks. Yay~~! I'm so excited to see my families, and I will continue to work on my art in China -- there are life drawing classes everywhere which are also cheap. I don't like the instructions though, but it's not bad to just drop in and draw stuff!
I went life drawing yesterday and today. Maybe having too much fun...

School is very important. Just look at what I did before entering this school, and what I do now, it's easy to tell that education really can change something, and it's not just me. I can see great progress in everyone's work. We get inspired by looking at each other's stuff, so we can work harder. That's how people get improved.

Old painting (from imagination. I didn't know how to use oils at that time. No clue at all. )

New painting (from life. Acrylics. 3 hours)

Come meet Colonel Saul Tigh. You know you want to.

You heard me, Colonel Tigh is gonna be here. Go meet him, maybe offer him a frakkin' swig from a flask. Or just come out and see me if you want. No one will judge you. Where you ask? Well, at the Sci Fi Expo of course.
