I promise I haven't been slacking already. I've been working on my website (droidsforsale.com) and working making some more happen on this blog. So things are happening behind the curtains and will be revealed soon. Might even get some drawing in tonight.

For a long time I've been wanting to practice drawing/painting. I know I'm not great, I never have been. I think it's taken till now to really make myself do it though. Considering who I'm working with, if I don't try to learn something from them then I'm an idiot, so hopefully through this practice I can pick up a few tricks/tips.
I once heard Arnold Schwarzenegger tell a story about his bodybuilding career. After he won his first few competitions, he realized that he hadn't worked out his legs much. They were considerable smaller than his upper body, and he became really self conscious about them. But instead of hiding them, he wore shorts everyday to show them off. To show everyone how bad they were, but most importantly to remind himself everything he saw himself in the mirror that he needed to work on them.
So.. These are my short shorts. I realize that I'm not a great traditional artist and rather than hide behind my 3D work and lean on that for as long as I can, I'm going to put this out here for everyone to see. My plan is to draw for one hour everyday, 2 if I can fit it in. I'll admit that I might skip days, or maybe some days I'll update with a sculpt or something but for the most part this is a drawing blog.
Well... here we go.
