Zoo Day, more Figure Practice, and Flight VS Art, what would you decide?

went to the zoo today. I love drawing animals.

My coworker Adam asked me if I would trade art for flight (like superman). After spending time practicing today, I decided that I would still rather do art. Earning something feels better than being handed something I think. Being an artist in the games industry is definitely hard-earned. Competition is rampant and fierce, and McArtSchools are graduating hoards of hopefuls every semester. Psychologically, it feels fantastic that I made the cut! It makes me feel special, especially that I'm a female in a male dominated industry no less. Plus, art is about possibilities, flight is just a way to get around. If I were a bird, I would trade flying for the ability to create. There is no question in my mind.








Until next time!

Beautiful sketches. Drawing at the zoo has always left me extremely frustrated, but I know I need to do it. Thanks for sharing!

Really? I think I'd rather be a super hero. Your choice says a lot of good things about you, though.

I like that tiger sketch, too.

Eric, figure drawing makes me frustrated more than drawing at the zoo for some reason :) I think I do more "symbol" drawing when I do figure, but more observation drawing when I do the zoo.

Thanks everyone!

Ted - you already have the superability to make people laugh. I love that about you. You're a super hero to me.

Hmm, I don't know...maybe if I had all of Superman's powers? But these are great, and you really captured the grace and power of that tiger's gait!
