Captain America...the Director's Cut!

It's done! Haha, I finally finished it. Decided not to do the hard thing, and transfer the image to better paper, but rather tough it out on he copy paper and deal with what I had already. It's not 100% what I was hoping for, but it is what it is.

If ya'll like this process stuff, I'll do more. If you don't, I won't bother. If I hear nothing, I'll take it ya'll feel more akin to the latter statement, and I'll just keep groovin'. No pressure to comment...though they're always nice. hehe

Some other notes about the day: Picked up some new materials today...different leads for my pencils, including some non-repro blue lead for my trusty mechanical pencil. Also picked up a newer, bigger tool box for all my markers and shtuff, which has been a long time coming. I've been working out of my old little tool box, and a shoe box, and it's sucked. I'm rolling in style again, and it feels good!

After my trip to the art store, I swung by the theater place and peeped this movie called "Star Trek," maybe you've heard of it. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it, and walked out glad I decided to spend full price to see it. Haven't done that since "Watchmen" back in March...which is a real dry spell for me. And it looks like there are a slate of really good movies coming out this summer for me to look forward to, and ponder on whether I'll be plunking down the duckets to seem them.

Of the trailers I saw, I was most excited by the trailers for the new Pixar flick, "Up" and Focus Films' "9." The new Transformer movie looks okay, and I was less than impressed with the trailer for G.I. Joe...I think I'll wait for DVD on those.

Started playing with acrylics today. Did up a Hellboy piece that I'm currently trying not to mangle. I might show it...although I probably won't. Ain't painted anything since high school, which means it's been over a decade since I picked up a brush. But, I've had this hankering to play with paints, pastels, colored pencils, and crayons lately, so I hope to have some new stuff with these new mediums up sooner than later. That's all I got for now.

Take nothing for granted.
