Drawing was my first love (aside from Captain Kirk and Indiana Jones).

My absolute favorite things to illustrate are based in fantasy or history, but I've also always loved drawing nature, animals, costumes, fashion and portraits.


So, there is a reason that I'm not posting terribly frequently, but there will ALWAYS be a reason, right? I'm doing a program at Gnomon in LA and it's pretty freaking awesome but it keeps me busy with six classes a term. At least now that I'm through the second quarter, I finally have some stuff to show that's not too boring. :D

Well, I'll try to be better. There is always trying...and this naked guy with a machete.

figure sculpture - tambourine dancer
I'm not sure what it is with me and tambourine dancers BUT I LOVE THEM.  Sort of a mash-up of Esmeralda and Arabian-ish dancers (I WISH I'd had time to sculpt a goat and a better base, but I take six classes per term).

This is the fruits of my laborious and awesome class with John Brown at Gnomon - first time doing an entire figure (and my other experience only includes two heads and one torso done ages ago in polymer clay).  I am sort of a terrible photographer, so I plan on getting my boyfriend to help me take better ones with his knowledge of lighting and whatnot, but at the least here is something to see! It's a 20" sculpt in plasticine fully armatured (with telescoping arms).  I'll try to get around to also putting up a montage of some progress shots to show a little more of how it all came together.

I want to do more and get way better!  And stop giving my girls beefy knees.

If you want to know more about John Brown I highly encourage you to google him because he's the bestestestest.

Art history final.  Still feels like kind of a study, but I am REALLY happy with her face.

Skeleton toast by CourtneyTrowbridge
Skeleton toast
I love drawing skeletons! I hate drawing skeletons! Definitely skeleton-ed out (and then I had to draw muscles over top of it, yeesh).

A toast to king skeleton and his skeleton mistress!
Costume drawing final by CourtneyTrowbridge
Costume drawing final
Here is a very Sky Doll-inspired costume design I did for my final project in Costume Figure Drawing with Charles Hu (at Gnomon - wheeee! very fun class!).  It's a mash-up of evil queens, Renaissance/Elizabethan, Chinese wedding headdresses, sci-fi and such and was a preeeeeetty awesome open final project.

If you're not familiar with Sky Doll, it's a fantastic Franco-Belgian comic by the amazing team Alessandro Barbucci and Barbara Canepa BUT Marvel also translated it into English.  If you like comics with amazing art and colors, then I think you might like it.
