Figure Drawing

Corinna and I tried a new figure drawing workshop in Pasadena tonight and it went very well. Small space. Very good model. All short poses. Between 1 and 15 minutes. 

For figure drawing, I try to draw in a loose, direct style, mostly in Conté crayon. 

Since all the poses were short, you have no choice but to commit to the line you're drawing and move on. It's a great exercise. Highly recommended for all artists at all skill levels.

Here are some of my results:

EXILE ON THE PLANET OF THE APES #2 ships today! It's co-written by me and Corinna Bechko and drawn by Marc Laming. 

Horror Haven reviews says: "There is absolutely no one else out there that knows Apes better than the creative team of Bechko, Hardman and Laming. Therefore, if you are a fan of PLANET OF THE APES or the previous miniseries, you need to do yourself a favor by picking up this book."

So don't forget to pick it up!

Also, here's a great script to page process blog put together by our editor, Dafna Pleban: The Boom! Pen

Had a great time at C2E2 in Chicago this past weekend. This was our first time attending the show or any mid-west show for that matter. I had heard mixed things about C2E2 in the past but it really seems to have found it's feet. It was well attended and very successful for us. I could live with out the weather oriented flight delays getting home but it is what it is.

Here are a bunch of my sketches from the show:

And most important of all, I drew Doctor Zaius on a baseball:
