Just enjoying home…

…it sure is nice to see what has changed and hasn’t changed back here in the Tri-State Area. It is super cold back here in the East and at times you see little sprinkles of snow here and there but nothing big quite just yet. Once the snow really hits us, if it hits us at all this year; I will be sure to take pics for you guys and gals :) But in the meantime, enjoy these artificial huge snowflakes from NY :P

In other news, I finally got around to making a links list which will be located on the right side of this blog; so be sure to check these fellow artists, some friends of mine mixed with other artist I admire from the blog community and regular websites :) Coming very soon.

I will be updating this list more and more every week; so for those of you who don’t see yourself there, please keep in mind that there are a lot of people that I have yet to put up and I am in the process of doing so; but be sure to remind me if I haven’t :)

Well, here are some sketches for the week, I will update again really soon but in the meantime enjoy the sketches :)

Oh yeah, here is a fun little quick recording sketch I did on my Wacom. It was fun to record myself as I was figuring shapes out. I will tell yah, when your recording yourself drawing, you become very self aware of how fast or slow you are really drawing…hehe… it was really fun experiment to do and I just wanted to share that with you guys and gals. I hope you all like it :)

Oh, and one last thing, I just got an email from a good friend of mine and fellow artist, Piya Wannachaiwong about an article on the word ‘w00t’ that I use so much. I went ahead and explored this further and well it is true, ‘w00t’ has won Webster's Word of the Year! Ok, so you might be asking yourself why are you saying this RoB? Well, if anyone knows me I am always signing off or saying the word ‘WooT’ all the time :P So I was happy to hear that this word is well, word of the year..hehe ^_^

Three cheers for the word of the year!


And on that note I am out…
