Figure drawings from a session at SJSU. This particular model frequents Dreamworks Studio, so we got a healthy dose of stories from her. As I was drawing her, I couldn't help but notice something particularly alive about this woman.

Later on in the session, she told us about a story of a model who had to come to terms with her overweight issues and how the story of that model influenced her as well. I have to say, she really changed my perception of what is beauty; she herself has to be one of the most beautiful persons I have ever met.

Digital Painting Studies

Here is a collection of digital painting studies that I have done throughout the course of this semester. The first three are photo studies done in my illustration class as a means to warm up to painting in photoshop. The rest are quick studies I've done in my spare time.
