Here's the first sketch I did...Now I'm attempting to make it more clear about what's going on. The lobster on the chef's shoulder doesn't want to get into the hot boiling water. I wouldn't blame him. But It's kinda confusing cause the chef looks like he's in love with the lobster, and lobster is terrified. I want the lobster to be a snob and not get into the boiling water, and the chef is asking pretty please? That's where I am now. Drawing lobsters aren't easy.
So...I'm currently working on an illustration that I have to draw a lobster with an attitude. For starters lobsters are difficult to add character, let alone emotion. Gotta draw eyes that aren't really there. I went onto google and typed in lobster with an attitude...clicked on "I'm Feeling Lucky, and wala I got decent images and reference to take from. http://unhmagazine.unh.edu/sp04/crustaceans_3.html
Mmmm the wonders of the inter-webs! I also checked out some images from Google as well...Not so lucky. I'll post up my sketches, as well as the finish in about a week!

So it's almost finally here, scary and exciting at the same time. I'm referring to my last semester in college, if all goes well of course. It's been fun, I've learned a lot here at Pratt...but now it's time get serious. Need to make a check list of things to get done before entering into the "real" world/art world/being an illustrator world...Anyways I haven't posted anything on this lame blog I've got going on here...But hopefully I can change that, I'm speaking to nobody at the moment, but that's how it goes. I want to post sketches, and finished projects, of what I'm anticipating on being my best work to date! I've got a direction, I've got a drive, what else do I need? A job, a website, oh, that goes on my checklist...Stop rambling to no one Chris. Just stop...I'm stopping.
