Sketch dump #13

Here is another gallery because I don’t want to make different posts for each photo. #1 is Beyonce and I’m sorry but I hate her. Anyways the picture (originally by someone whose name is somewhere in the photo) was so cool I had to draw it. #2 is the picture I drew from that YouTube test speed drawing test thing. #3 is mini Lady! The miniature version of the BEST PICTURE I HAVE EVER DRAWN that is not yet scanned and posted because its too big to fit in the scanner. #4 is from a video that I’m probably going to post but the quality is fuzzy. And that is the worst possible fate for a video.

Soooo, I have a YouTube account but I’ve never used it before. Well now I’ve used it for the first time and this is what happened. I have no idea why the video is so fuzzy. I swear it was not that fuzzy when I filmed it and the resolution was the recommended setting. Anyways if anyone has any tips to make it better please HELP. (The final drawing after I inked it will probably show up somewhere on my blog when I get around to it.)

 

Huge Sketch dump (#12?)

I haven’t put up any artwork in a while so here are some pages from my sketchbook. The scanner is being a butthead and picking up all of the artwork on the opposite side of the page too, so please try to forgive the smudgyness of the images. Just a few points are: the second and third images are all poses from Batgirl of Burnside 1. The boys poses are not filled up because I totally lost interest at that point. The fourth image consists of figure drawings from the library. In the sixth I copied all of the poses that somebody else had already drawn so give somebody else the credit for those. That’s it. Enjoy.

Western Literature lesson 40

Write 500 words on this topic: What was Hesiod’s view of the mankind’s past and future? Okey doke, so this is waaaay late and now I have 6 more because I can’t do them fast enough! Joy…

Hesiod, the author of Works and Days, told tales of the five races of men created by the gods to serve the gods in whatever capacity the gods wished. Named after various metals, each race was different from the last and ever increasing in tarnish and corrosion. Zeus kept twiddling his fingers long after each race died out, always hoping for something better than what had previously been created, but to no avail.

Golden was the first stage of man and the only one not created by the gods of Mt. Olympus. Instead, the people lived under the reign of Cronos, the king Titan. Un-tainted by sorrow, misery, pain, or hunger, their lives were considered perfect in every way. They honored their rulers constantly in return for their wonderful, content lives. Though still mortal, their deaths came after a lifespan of hundreds of years and were like a peaceful sleep. From then on they roamed the earth as pure spirits. But how did such a perfect race ever come to an end? Alas, when Zeus struck his father Titan from his throne, the resulting carnage destroyed all mortals below. Continue reading
