Here are some pieces from my portfolio within December 2007. These are good examples of my first attempt at rendering using the crazy "smudging" techniques. It's all new and cool to me, and it's quite an effective method to get a rendered drawing down in 10-20 minutes. This last one, or the one closest to this paragraph - is the last drawing I did on the last week of school - therefore it is technically my greatest drawing with all of my skill and experience combined. Of course...this is only the beginning, and I have so much to learn and so much to struggle with.
