Something a little more personal.
Since my move to California, there had been a lot of self-doubt about my level of talent and whether or not I should have made the choices I’ve made leading up to this point. As I’ve said in this, even when it seems as though everything’s not going well, life has a way of turning things around when you work hard enough to make that happen.
Even though what I’m saying is pretty much general knowledge, I made this more for myself than anyone else…but it’s something I hope someone could look at now and later. To remind themselves of their potential, whether they believe they have it or not. I myself still have a ways to go, but I continue creating art and remaining more hopeful than ever.
For the doubting creatives(or anyone for that matter)
Sums up a good portion of my own thoughts lately..
I had two Springbok horns that didnt have a match so i made them into bottles! A water tight glass 4 dram bottle with a screw top and a brass ring for hanging has been sculpted into the horn. The top of the horn was coated in brass paint and aged with patina. The whole piece has been clear coated in gloss. A great addition to a costume or just a weird way to sneak booze into the movie theater.
Each bottle will come with the chain and key charm pictured.
The short horn is 7 1/4” long
The long horn is 8 5/8” long

Super useful for some homework I have to do. Thanks for this!
Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don’t - I have a lot to learn), I’m not sure I could communicate them effectively. I’ve gathered some thoughts and ideas here, though, in case they’re helpful.
First, some general things:
All of this. So much this.
the lecturer hands us these art blogs every now and then, and they’re really useful. Tangents are pretty easy to fall for, too! which sucks ‘cuz then it’d look weird and you’d have to re-do some stuffs or worse, re-do the composition of the whole image.
the rest & explanations in Chris Schweizer’s blog : http://curiousoldlibrary.blogspot.com.au/2011/10/schweizer-guide-to-spotting-tangents.html
John K’s blog is really good too (the guy who did Ren and Stimpy) : http://johnkstuff.blogspot.com.au/2006/06/animation-school-7-when-generic-is.html
