The Sketchbook

Art!!

Here’s a peek into the most recent additions of my sketchbook – I’ll try to make this a regular thing as it is nice to look back and see progress!

This was a significant moment in season 10 for me – as I hone my skills I shall return to it. I’ve titled this ‘Castiel Returns’ in an attempt to sound as pretentious as I can – HA – no I just thought it was appropriate for the moment.


Studies of Sam – more significant moments for me that I attempted to capture. Playing around with head angles and such to get the right proportions and perspective. I’m gonna just label the whole set ‘Faith’.


Kevin! Several fellows from work……’encouraged’ me to draw something other than the Winchesters – so I drew a surrogate Winchester #notsorry


All the studies – practice practice practice. I also really love eyes……


Hiccup – this one was for Trinya =] On my list of top five favorite movies – I’m honestly amazed it took me this long to sketch him.


Dean studies – because honestly I believe getting him right is nearly impossible, but it’s a task that I have taken upon myself to complete. I’m not there yet, but I’ll keep plugging away.

The Blockbusters

I actually made good on a promise to myself this summer!

I swore going into June that I would go and see Spy and Jurassic WorldBecause if I didn’t – I would put it off till I was 90 and regret not seeing either film for years.

So I DID!

Spy was really great, far less slapstick then I had expected, but lots of fun.

Jurassic World was everything I wanted it to be. I got my fill of dinos eating people and plenty of nostalgia.

What surprised me about both of these movies was their ability to take a predictable scenario and revitalize it. No, they didn’t make it unpredictable – but they made the predictable fun to watch and reminded (me at least) of why certain tropes are over used. I wasn’t expecting anything more from Jurassic than a lot of dinos, a lot of CGI, some wisecracks amidst the blood and that’s ok – they delivered just what I wanted without the whole movie feeling pathetic and tired.

Also Melissa McCarthy – I adore her, she’s gorgeous and a force to be reckoned with.

Go see these films – laugh, cry, yell at the screen. You won’t regret it!
