Dragon*Con 2009 art

The previous weekend was Dragon*Con, and it was an opportunity to do a little bit of art. Most prominent opportunity was a ConceptArt.org meet-up at one of the artist's studio-loft. It was a lovely place and the atmosphere was so warm. I slowly warmed up to the people there, though I was a little awkward because I was probably the only one there who's not a professional artist. We were very luck in that one person, Emma, was able to get a model to come in. It's been forever since the last time I'd done any life drawing from a model, making it awkward for me to get the drawings done but very enjoyable to use the opportunity.

In addition to the life drawing at the meet up, I got a little sketching done towards a Princess Tutu exchange drawing. I have some changes to make to the sketch below in order to get it to work, but the overall idea is there.

And lastly, I entered the quick sketch contest held on Monday before heading out. I went in with the intention of doing a sequential piece, but I couldn't focus on any one story moment and simply went with the little mechanic girl image. I didn't win, but one of the judges did commend me on creating an image with a story behind it, which is a plus in book. Maybe next year.

The Girl

Below are some ink sketches I did of the little girl I've drawn a couple of times. I'd like to do more with her and her companion giant robot, so I did some sketches to try and peg her design a little. Need to work on her a little more. She also needs a name.
