Getting comfortable with the Watts method (upside down and backwards) + GF3 + Casey Neistat

 It finally happened - holding the pencil this way is starting to feel right, and I'm getting some good control. Also, I'm discovering how badass these Conte pencils are for shading! Looks like ink, goes down like pencil, but doesn't have the graphite shine and wow those rich deep blacks!! 

 Hahaha - really rough I know - I was totally screwing this one up until I decided to cut loose and just go nuts with the big changes it needed - it was either tackle it rough and loose at that point or give up. 

 Was too lazy to go to the basement and check the date - it wasn't the 20th, it was the 16th. What I love about this new skull is the very visible plane breaks - so glad I chose it out of all the ones on Amazon!

Holy crap!! Where did that come from all of a sudden??!!

In related news, I decided out of the blue I want to shoot some live action HD video stuff, so I checked eBay and bought myself a Panasonic Lumix GF3 from Japan for a measly $58!! Insane - it goes for $400 even used! It takes the same lenses I already have for my G1 (stopmotion camera, no video capabilities). Immediately after I bought it, Shelley turned me on to Casey Neistat's videos. Super inspirational!!
