    Doing a little drawing this afternoon.

    This Wolverine is probably indicative of the best I can do drawing from imagination. I see lots of problems--and could make it better if I drew it again--but this is about my best one-off effort.

    Sketching Jade Shade and Chokecherry just to do some poses. Shade should be taller and I don't like what I did with his hands, but otherwise not too bad.

    So I redrew Wolverine. Quickly (about 20 minutes start to finish, half the time of the first one). Not as carefully inked as the previous one, but...

    1. Pose is better
    2. Perspective is better
    3. Anatomy is better

    Using the Apocalypse to sort through a lot of my old stuff, some of which I haven't unpacked since I moved into my house six years ago.

    Found some old art...

    I did this one in the 2nd grade for a fire prevention contest and won an award from the local fire department. I might've been slightly demented as a child....

    Here's a program cover I made for a concert at my high school. Unmistakably my style, though the subject matter probably wouldn't fly nowadays...

    This might be the most important old drawing I have. It's (hopefully obviously) a copy of the Hildebrand Bros. classic Star Wars poster. Note that the colors are all wrong. I made this from a (IIRC) very tiny, very grainy black and white newspaper ad in the movie section. I hadn't even seen the trailer yet!

    Me, age 10, doing what 10-year-old me spent a lot of time doing. That's in my uncle's backyard; he still lives there!

    Wish I could have that hair back. :cry:

    I did have it until my entire comic collection got stolen from my brother's storage about a dozen years back. :sob:

    I obliterated the school name for privacy purposes.

    That angel was Jughead.
    He died of a binge drinking accident.
    It was soda, and he went into a diabetic coma.

    Heh, found a version of the ad I copied. It was very small and the detail not so clear, so I didn't realize that was Darth Vader's head in the background.

    A video I made of me reciting a short story in Russian. It's not very exciting; just me speaking for 6 minutes with a black screen.

    But I am kinda happy with the title sequence I made for it. Licensed the music and everything! And am teaching myself to use Adobe Premiere Rush.



    And, gosh, my pronunciation--after ten years of off-and-on study--still leaves quite a bit to be desired.

    You may have been deceived by фамилию (pronounced "fuh-MEE-lee-you")...its meaning is close to "family" but not exactly: it means last name (or family name). The actual Russian word for "family" is семья (pronounced sorta like "seem(j)-YAH").

    There are actually quite a lot of English cognates in Russian. Very often, these words sound very different, but are really virtually identical to English words once you sound them out syllable-by-syllable. One I came across recently was псевдоним, but when I sounded it out--psyev-doe-neem--it hit me: pseudonym.

    My ex-wife is Russian. Every once in a while something like that would happen to me when I'd hear her talk to other Russians.

    I really enjoyed the last couple pages of this thread. You have some good chops which your 2nd Wolverine shows how far they've developed.

    I love comics, and he was one of my favorite characters.
