I love her stuff; the piece above is either at the Avery Fisher Hall (the place where the NY Philharmonic orchestra plays) or one of the buildings right around it (that plaza with the Julliard school); I'm pretty sure I saw it there when I was in New York. It's actually really huge, and nice and omi...

It's improved considerably since the first sketch - the latest one is great! The folds are very nice, and the anatomy is just tighter. Only a few crits for anatomy; the thighs are slightly too long, as is the neck - as I see it, anyways, since it appears you're going with a humanized torso. The righ...

SPOILERS OMFG Man, I loved it as a movie, but was similarily annoyed at everything that was left out. I'm wondering if he's just trying to piss off the poor sucker who has to fit the events of Book 5 into one movie. THAT's a lot of film on the editing room floor, lemme tell you. But I can totally ig...

His pose, to me, is a little natural for a knife fighter. He'd be a little more tense, for a pinup-style thing.

In other news, it's a good character design for just a normal guy...who's been quite hurt. :P

World's best place for inspiration is definately CSS Zen Garden. Not only is it easy to figure out - since the original HTML never changes, just the CSS stylesheet - a full source code is provided! Nifty!

There's also about a billion and a half designs.

Nice drawings, I love the scribbely-sketchy style of em. Could you possibly shrink em down? They're a little big - maybe stick em behind a link, or a thumbnail?

Oh come on! This is a prototype :P I'm sure it has thousands of other practical uses. Think - it's only equipped with a CCD camera for now. Imagine if it were equipped to pick up textures, via distance-mapping or whatever it's called, and then map them out, render the light according to the map and ...

And then again, we could get an influx of "taht sucks omfg" :) I personally don't comment much, because I don't trust my artistic eye enough to judge other people's works yet ;) I don't draw as much as I want to - ahh the busy life - and so I don't have the experience probably required to see specif...

John Mayer Trio

I caught a John Mayer Trio show at the Kool Haus here in Toronto, last wednesday. One of my friends is a pretty rabid John Mayer fan - as quite a few of them are - and begged for me to come with her and a few people. All I'm saying is, had I known about the group previously, no begging would have be...

Wow! I'm usually not so drawn in by a few pages, but this one just hooks you! Your characters are so full of life - I can almost see Kilwa roll her eyes in that last panel ("No, Of course we wear clothes. Just not as many as you do here."). Any more?

It's currently my hobby, as well as a few classes in my school career. The main problem is that I get good marks in both Art subjects (Art, English, Music), as well as academic subjects (Chemistry, Math - ew, I'm so good at that it hurts, Physics). I really don't know what I'm going to do in univers...

Hehe - Kazu, it's really quite hilarious, imagining your avatar going "Aaaagh! Bastards!". Either way.

Would this be a good time to mention I'm arranging and performing the music for a high-school Tom Waits musical? I think it would! My drama teacher's just a hardcore Tom Waits fan; he went to his concerts in the 90s and all that kind of thing. Tom Waits' talent is just so...multifaceted. His voice i...

Mos may have the best rap voice ever. His words just flow. Not that his lyrics aren't great, but I can just listen to BoBS for his voice.
Plus, he was Ford Prefect! Let's see Kanye do THAT!

Lightsabers are alright - it just looks like it needs some cleaning up. If you stand back and look at the blades, they're kind of...well...wobbly. That's the main thing, just making things clean. You can use the line tool to draw a perfectly straight line in Photoshop. Little things like that, clean...
