Gesturing with Shapes

For this week's gesture drawing class, Louis Gonzales had us draw with thick markers.   His goal was to get us to think in terms of shape and silhouette, instead of line and anatomy.  It was a fun exercise, and one I recommend trying.  The line work in these drawings was done after the fact in an attempt to push and pull the poses... although most of my line work just ended up tracing the shapes.  Im guessing we'll be doing more of these exercises next week.  I'll leave a bunch without lines so you guys can see the purpose of the exercise.

Rex Steele: Nazi Smasher the Score!

For those of you that remember the Rex Steele: Nazi Smasher short film I made a few years ago, I have some good news!! Ryan Shore, the uber talented composer and conductor of the score has just released a new CD entitled: "Rex Steele: Nazi Smasher and other short film scores". I'm proud to say that we traveled all the way to Prague to have the score performed and recorded by the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, so it's really something special! The album is being distributed by Screen Archives Entertainment and is commercially available on CD or MP3 download.

You can listen to clips HERE
