I did these drawings for the Aspen Comics Art Room Sketch Challenge. It's held once a week and voted on by our peers, than the winner gets to pick who/what we will be drawing next week. There's no major prize other than practice and whatever knowledge can be gained from the critiques by other aspiring artists. I don't always get the time to do it once a week, but I try it when I can.
The challenge for these two weeks were to draw Supergirl with Krypto and Executive Assistant Iris.

For the first time in a while I had a whole weekend off from work. It wasn't even scheduled that way, the days off just kinda fell on me. I didn't have anything planned for my new days off, and I thought about using it to do some pages, but I decided, considering how much I'd been working and how tired I was that I was going to take a weekend from that too. Jeff and I went out for breakfast, and I did do some laundry and mild cooking and cleaning, but other than that it was quite relaxing. I also did do a little drawing, but only to keep loose. Overall, I feel quite refreshed and ready for the week. :)

I got a nice surprise today. After I got home from work I logged onto the computer and got a message from Xiwik saying that, just for fun and practice, he colored a necromancer sketch of mine from a little while ago. I'm so excited, it turned out great!

Since work has been taking up so much of my time lately I haven't been able to draw as much as I want. So whenever a minute pops up and I'm to tired to do real work I've been doing little body part and expressions exercises. Basically I've been looking at works of accomplished artists and copying whatever interests me from the picture in order to learn new line techniques, expressions, etc...

So this morning I woke up with a bad case of the flu. With a 101° temperature, body aches, chills, and my throat so swollen I could barely swallow, I had to take my first sick day from work in a LONG time. And since we haven't had a car since before Christmas (see: here) we had no food and no medicine in the house. Jeff to the rescue! Jeff decided that while I rested, he would brave the -16°F to walk to Jewel and buy some soup and DayQuil. I guess he really wanted me to feel better... considering he lugged TEN cans of Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup home.
