I like doing wrap-arounds on these blank covers, but dealing with the crease and staples is troublesome, so I'll go back to black and white (or primarily B&W with a touch of colour in spots).

Thor, a special promotional card for Perna Studio's Classic Mythology II limited edition sketch card series. The announcement and final appearance of the card can be seen here: http://www.deviantart.com/art/Thor-Promo-Card-P3-372948839
Here's the B&W line art:
I'd really like to do at least another ten of these Norse mythology pieces and I'll likely do a larger Valkyrie as a personal piece for August as well.

Did get a delayed bout of con crud/flu, though I seem to be recovering already. Steve Niles's post-con cough turned out to be bronchitis, so send him good vibes for a speedy recovery.
Particularly enjoyed the company of Dale Keown, George Perez, Steve Niles, Ben Templesmith (who gave me a wicked Lovecraft print!), Arthur Suydam, and the great folks from Paradise Comics of Toronto (who treated me to a most excellent steak dinner Saturday night).
Would certain say yes to a return visit to this convention!

My amazing artist pal Max Douglas/Salgood Sam has a Kickstarter under way with writer Mark Sable for their historical horror series, Dracula, Son of the Dragon here http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/78669939/dracula-son-of-the-dragon/posts
As I'm putting this up there are just 66 hours left and it's very close to hitting it's goal. I really recommend checking it out!

Made this for my class and a friend suggested I might want to share it online. It starts with the premise you have to learn the facial/skull anatomy no matter what construction method you use, so it's likely better to start with the shape of the head you want to draw rather than force a circle, block or cylinder into that shape.
There was a whole lot of talking and demonstrations that went along with this handout, but I'm not too keen to type all that up right now. If you've any specific questions, feel free to ask in a comment.

Caught some interesting shadows from a studio window and liked the cool blue light colliding with the warm golden light inside the studio so I kept clicking them despite the potential for distraction.
The model, Andrae, was spectacular and will be returning for the next session at Durham College on the 28th.

I'd love it if you all would click on over and see the fine bunch of people producing some amazing artwork there and, perhaps, take a peek at the whole sketch I did! http://outlandcollective.outlandentertainment.com/

Organised a series of five open studio figure drawing sessions at Durham College for Thursday evenings. Open studio means anyone can drop in to draw (after paying the $10 model fee) and it isn't an instructed class. Last week was the first session. . .
All are charcoal on cartridge paper.
If you're in the Oshawa area Thursday night, I can't think of a better thing you could be doing!

Most of my warm-ups are from places like http://figuresfordrawing.tumblr.com/ , http://www.quickposes.com/pages/gesture , or various picture from deviantART.
