Self-portrait of myself as a pigeon, because people keep asking me where my tumblr url is from and well. I just really like fluffy, fancy pigeons
(I think only the few people who have known me for 5+ years know of my pigeon obsession anyway)

Reworked the concept for Atakor, added more fire, more horns, more teeth and also more deadly. He’s your not-so-friendly neighbourhood god of war, destruction, fire etc.

Tuesday Tips - FOLDS
More on folds today. I will eventually cover all types of folds but today is about simple folds on everyday clothes (t-shirt, jeans). The key is to know what to expect and then applying what you know to simplify what you see in front of you (when life drawing). A lot of the folds dynamics on shirts and jeans come from the “memory” of the fabric itself. Denim is thick and is likely to keep some form of wrinkles or folds around certain areas (knees). A lot of zig-zag patterns around the knee is very likely. When pushed down on the feet, the denim fabric will bunch up and combine with the zig-zag pattern. Shirts and t-shirts will react to the twist and pull of the arms and torso. Identify where the pull (or tension) is coming from and work from it. I tend to draw the seams because they clearly express the volumes underneath.
