I'm working on several sketches for a couple different contests, which have AMAZING prizes (see below). The deadlines are very soon, so besides school and time outside (to keep my sanity) I have been spending hours in my studio in an effort to finish them. Actually, I could probably put a little more effort into them if I had a comfortable chair to sit on, I tried Sarah's exercising ball, but didn't work to well. Anywho...stay tuned for pictures of the finished products!
