Fun with Reference

When I need a model, I set up a mirror and some charcoal paper, and I draw.

With a wig and a costume and a scowl, I can be anybody—in my imagination at least.

During a break I forget to take off the wig, much to the amusement of FedEx man, who chooses that moment to come by the house.

The final painting appears as a gatefold in Nintendo Power magazine to promote the game Dinotopia: Timestone Pirates.

The graphics in the game were pretty good too. Though looking back at it in videos online, I am surprised how much violence there was in a Dinotopia game.

I'm amazed that you can hold the pose while drawing! I usually just take photos, but it would be great to be able to draw from life too.
