Draw Yourself as a Teenager Meme

Draw Yourself as a Teenager Meme

Also, I must note, it wasn't that I didn't believe in wearing skirts, it's just that I was really self-conscious about my body, hence being incredibly covered up in baggy clothes. Which is kind of funny, since looking back, there was really no reason to be self-conscious... I mean, besides being a teenager in general.

Costumed Sketch Night: Steampunk Theme

#7 Five Minute Pose: Checking PocketwatchOur model, Nick, checks his pocketwatch

Last night was another pretty awesome Costumed Sketch Night. Due to my busy/crazy/sick/gone April, it was a little less promoted than usual, and also we only had one model.

Despite all that, everything came out really well, so hooray! I didn't get to do as many sketches as I usually do, because I opted to help model in the last long poses (it's easier to have poses when you have interaction, I think).

2 Minute Pose: T-Rex Stomping re-enacts Dinosaur Comic's panel four - T-rex Retaliation!

The theme was Steampunk, so there was a lot of props, Victoriana, goggles, and, umm, a T-rex puppet... Because it's easier when the models interact with stuff!

Perhaps I just like making the models interact with puppets, since it's happened at the last two Costume Sketch Nights (though technically, Alison and Annie insisted upon the puppets, so maybe it's just their continued influence).

There were a lot of awesome drawings that came out of it, which you can check out at the Costumed Sketch Night group pool (there's more than just mine now!)

Next Costumed Sketch Night is Fairy themed,
