I’ve been asked a lot about how I draw hoods, mostly Talon’s hood, so I hope this helps a little? Just a pretty basic thing but hey there ya go

Hoods are pretty cool, they usually have a lot of variety in how they can look (and sometimes people even wear two hoods at once) so just get creative with it and have fun

I wanted to talk a bit about what I’ve been doing to better cope with my ADHD. Because while the medication has been super helpful in kickstarting my ability to actually DO things, it’s not a panacea. I still have to figure out ways to provide myself with structure.
This is my domestic magnetic white board (I’m going to get a second one for the home office for professional stuff) I got it for like $20 at Costco, complete with the hanging hardware, magnets, markers and eraser. 
I know it looks overwhelming at the moment but here’s how it works:
Everything is color coded. The green is food I want to make for the week. The red is chores and other stuff I have to do like email my landlord and pay bills. The blue is my grocery list. Purple is a shopping list for stuff I can’t get at the grocery store, at the moment it’s stuff I want to get at Costco when I go later this week. Black is random things I want to tell my roommates or notes to self. Orange is usually doodling.
Whenever I realize I need something, or need to do something, or need to remember something, I write it down on the white board in the corresponding color. When I go to the store, I take a pic of the list with the camera on my phone and erase the list. When I complete a chore or make a meal, I erase that thing from the board.
By Friday or Saturday this board is almost entirely blank. Sunday morning is when I plan my meals for the week, my grocery shopping list, and whatever special chores or tasks I want to do for the week. That’s why it’s full right now. 
This works for me because it’s in a central location and it’s right on the wall. I don’t have to dig for it. I pass it every time I go to the fridge or the pantry or the stove. The markers and the eraser are magnetic so they stick to the board. I know I respond really well to color coding, I always have. This routine has proven really effective, which is why I’m getting a second one and putting it in my office so I can keep track of the various professional tasks I want to do. 
Also, because my professional tasks tend to also look more long-term than one week ahead, I plan to get a desk calendar and hang it on the wall. You can get those for as little as $5, hang it up with thumb tacks, and color code with markers. I used that method in college to keep track of due dates and exam dates and performance dates for various classes, etc. and it was really effective which is why I plan to do it again. 
I like to-do lists but I tend to lose them bc they aren’t in a fixed place. Also I like erasing things better than crossing them off. 
Anyway, just thought I’d share in case anybody might find this method useful or it might inspire somebody to develop their own method.

The Aftershocks
medium.com

I was asked to create a .gif of a house interior during an earthquake. The article chronicles the controversial aftermath of the devastating quake that happened in L’Aquila, Italy in 2009. I wanted to capture the movement of the “tremors” before the full-on earthquake, although this tremor is infinite, never resolving.
This image and the all the animation was made in Photoshop. thanks AD Erich Nagler!

Rebecca is amazing!

Saw this today on facebook and thought I might share. Since this is how I think about forms and shapes. You can use this for full rendering as same as shading with a pencil.

Tuesday Tip - Beat Boards / StoryboardsIt can be a daunting task to just “start storyboarding”. Because there’s so many things to think about when storyboarding, we all need a roadmap to know where we are going. Beat boards are not even the first step to creating a story, but it’s often the clearest way to pitch an early concept to someone. It’s also very useful to plan out the larger beats of a large physical sequence (action, chase, etc.). This way, you don’t have to go on a limb for a week or two and have to redo it all if it doesn’t work. They’re sort of like your Key Poses in animation, but put on a story scale. Does that make sense? Message me if you have any questions or suggestions about future posts.Norm
