Old Sketchbook Pictures

So lately I've just been working on the rough draft of my graphic novel. Well, it's more of a storyboard version than a rough draft. Calling it a rough draft implies that I could ink over is and use it. But anyway. It's going well, although I wish I was going faster. I feel a little stagnent right now and I'm not sure if I'm using my time as wisely as I should be. Perhaps I'm just having a slow week. I shall strive to be better!

So I have been doing things, artisticly, I just don't want to share them here. Because I want to try and get this comic published when it's done, so I don't want to spoil the storyline by putting it all up here. Snippets, yes. Full thing, no.

Instead I have some old sketchbook pictures! These are from last year...from around September, I think, but I'm not sure.

This first one I drew from some facebook photo. A friend of a friend, I've no idea who. She was jumping on a bed and I liked the movement of her hair, so I drew this from it.

And this is just my love of swirlies. :) I'm thinking of drawing the ocean like this in my comic...

In other news, a friend of mine started a choir a couple of weeks ago. I've been wanting to join one for aaaages. I just never got off my butt and got around to it. Plus a lot of the already established choirs want you to read music when you audition, which I can't really do. I mean, if the music is playing, I can follow it on the sheet, but I can't figure out how it sounds just by looking at the notes.

Anyway, when my friend said, "Hey, I'm starting a choir, wanna join?" how could I say no? :) It's only been two weeks so far, but I really like it. Although it makes it very hard to go to sleep, because I just lie there, still singing in my head. :P

Okay, I must go work on my comic! Perhaps I should do some turn arounds, those I'd be happy to upload here.
