I'd wish I could fly …

Posted on Saturday, February 25th, 2006 under Sketches | No comments

I drew and inked this one during a 2-hour conference call I had on Thursday, regarding a possible upgrade in our tracking and inventory software at work. Not too boring of a time, but I sure felt like I could be enjoying life a bit more elsewhere.

Everyone seemed to like this one so much (and I have finally figured out Photoshop's brushes a bit better to suit my liking) that I will probably color it and set it up as a downloadable digital wallpaper in the near future. Excited?

By the way, a few of the techniques I utilized in this piece, I garnished from some self-imposed cartoon/art learning ... specifically a VHS called, "Cartooning Tips and Tricks - with Mike Artell". I would have linked to the Amazon.com item, but apparently they don't have it. I found my copy at the local library, so I am sure you could do the same. The content is really geared at younger artists (and literally younger people), but nothing beats a good foundation. This is just one small part of my new research and training program that will transform my current talents into something quite wonderful. :)

Sadly, one of my favorite lil' Mac tools, Validator, which is perfect for validating XML files against custom Document Type Declarations (DTDs), is currently not working with Snow Leopard, or more specifically, Snow Leopard's implementation of 64-bit Perl.
