Missed it again!!!

Well, another sketchcrawl has come and gone and yet again, I missed it. I have a good reason though this time, I went on a mini weekend vacation to Monterey!

The Monterey Bay Aquarium is an amazing place. The otters are probably the top attraction, and can you blame them? They're not just cute little faces, they have a lot of personality as well. Some great ham actors even. This was a good trip for me since this is the first sea otters I have seen up close and in living, breathing colour. Very helpful when the movie you're working on is about otters!

The various Jellyfish tanks are full of gorgeous yet deadly glowing jellyfish. Okay, they aren't all deadly, but they're in the very least painful. The way they light the interiors of the tanks makes these creatures glow. It's pretty mesmerizing to just watch them float within the blue infinity.

Some good people watching at the aquarium as well.

Eventually we had to leave the aquarium and explore the gorgeous coast line.

Gave me a chance to try some different things. Not everything was successful, but it never is.

Head on a plate

Not sure why I drew my head on a plate for my cousin's b-day drawing, but there it is...

Trying to get looser with my brush inking, but I just don't think I have the control of the tools yet to pull it off. This was alright, but not great. The Bodart loose inking remains elusive, but one day I shall have the loose confident line.
