I flew to L.A. over an extended weekend for a much needed mini-vacation. Attending an art workshop taught by Nathan Fowkes (Blog 1, Blog 2) was the perfect excuse to get away. Many thanks to my buddy Philip Vose for being my gracious and generous host and thanks to Jason Boesch for hanging out. It was also really great to meet so many other awesome artists at Disney Feature as well as the workshop itself.
Anyhow, first up are the workshop paintings.
I couldn't recommend the workshop more. I was incredibily impressed with Mr. Fowke's knowledge and ease at which he conveyed it. He answered the hard questions and even the silly questions expertly. Needless to say, I've found my much needed inspiration and refreshment. :)
I had some time to kill at Los Angeles International before my flight home, been too long since I've drawn from life as well; need to fix that.
Lastly, some thumbnails from the past few drawnights. Still a focus on structures, in part to strengthen a weakness and in part because it's a good change from when I work with more organic and natural subjects all day at work.
