Green Shoes

Wow! This past week has been something of a whirlwind. My TV piece just kind of took off across the internet, and it just keeps going. I've been hearing from a lot of people, and it's a lot of fun, because people are generally awesome.
Really though, not a whole lot has changed for me. It's just back to the same old grind; back to schoolwork and watching Doctor Who with my roommate and blogging. I thought the first post after my unexpected blogsplosion should be something important. Something special. Unfortunately, I don't have anything like that, so here's a pair of anthropomorphic shoes instead.

These are for an assignment for school. It's not that exciting.

This took more hours than I can count... certainly qualifies for the 'one million things' assignment, I'd say!

I've been getting requests to list all the characters, so here they are! (I'll try to keep it sort of organized... and in the process probably make it more confusing...)
Back row, left to right: Dwight (The Office), Caprica 6 (Battlestar Galactica), Dr. House (House), JD (Scrubs), Tobias (Arrested Development), Liz Lemon (30 Rock), River (Firefly), Jack and Vincent (LOST), The 11th Doctor (Doctor Who), Walter (Breaking Bad), Rick Grimes (Walking Dead)
Middle row: Buffy (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Bill (True Blood), Jeff (Community), Quinn or really any other cheerleader from (Glee) and honestly could be Claire from (Heroes) if you'd prefer, Barney (How I Met Your Mother), Don Draper (Mad Men), Dexter (Dexter), Sherlock Holmes (Sherlock)
Bottom row: Sheldon (Big Bang Theory), Spock (Star Trek:TOS), Chuck (Chuck), Sydney Bristow (Alias)
Window: TARDIS (Doctor Who), USS Enterprise (Star Trek), Galactica (Battlestar Galactica), Serenity (Firefly)
Also, the dog is sorta supposed to look like the dog from Frasier, and the cat is sorta like the one from Sabrina (I've never watched either show, so I wasn't super particular about getting them right. Just wanted a few animals in it!)

Last First Week

So, this was my last first week of school ever! Scary stuff, that. Here's some stuff that I've done this week, including the line art for the TV piece:

And here's a robot eating some paper:

Something I feel like I've always struggled with is keeping a character design consistent and on model, especially once they start making expressions. I wanted to practice with a character who was also a real person, so if I couldn't figure out an angle I could look at a photo and figure out the structure. So yeah, more Doctors:

Here are a few of the characters I've drawn for my 'million things' TV character piece. Exciting!

Buffy (from Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Bill (from True Blood)

Chuck (from Chuck) and Sydney (from Alias)

Sheldon (from Big Bang Theory) and Spock (from Star Trek)

Dwight (from The Office) and Number 6 (from Battlestar Galactica)

The Doctor (from Doctor Who) and Walter (from Breaking Bad)
Don Draper (from Mad Men)

There are more, but you will have to wait to see them!

I'm old enough to know that my expectations of the future are unrealistic, but young enough not to care.

Also, why do I constantly think I'm seeing spiders out of the corner of my eye?? I just jumped! At nothing!!

(actually, it was a year ago on the 9th, but... whatever)

Anyway, just wanted to let the 5 people (approximately) who read this blog regularly to know that I haven't forgotten it! Just don't have a proper scanner here at home, but I'll be back to school in a few days and arting like a crazy person.

Oh, the photo? I just like it. My best bud Alle and I were in this little English village. Someone was selling finger puppets for 25p. They were hanging from their front door in a box; you just picked the one you wanted and put the coins through the letterbox in the door.

I've been getting really nostalgic about England lately. It could be an effect of all the British television I've been watching lately, but I feel like that's more of a result of my wistfulness than the other way around. I think part of it is that in March it will have been a year since I was there, and I actually feel something that borders on homesickness, which is weird (I'm prone to homesickness, but usually... you know... for home). There's another class with the same professor that's going back this Spring, and I wish I was going with them. (The class is called 'Mysteries of London', and it undoubtedly involves lots of Victorian texts... Dickens and Doyle, to be sure! GAH!! One of the things I will miss most about college is being able to study literature academically... I mean, I guess I could study it on my own, but it's just not the same. But I digress...*literature nerd*)

Anyway. It's all good... I know that I will be back across the pond soon enough :)

Ah! Thought I saw a spider again! Must be time for bed. More drawings soon!
