Photoshop Experiment

Today's gouache sketch is actually a part of a Frankenstein's monster-style experiment involving a few hand drawn layers and some tinkering with screen layers in Photoshop. This is definitely a test run of this process, so feel free to leave comments/feedback and let me know what you think.

EDIT: Here's a revised version:

Sketchbook 4-16/4-17

Some sketches from yesterday and the day before. I've been putting off working in color for WAY too long, so the old gouache set has come out of retirement. I'm holding myself to using them at least once a day in addition to my inks- I'm excited about how my work will develop with enough practice!

Science in Disguise

If you're not familiar with the news, Tennessee conservatives are pushing to pass HB 368, a bill that if made into effective law, will require public schools to include intelligent design as part of the science curriculum.
Intelligent design is based around the idea that there are complexities in nature that could never occur by chance, only by intention- through the conscious effort of an omnipotent designer.
Proponents of the bill argue that intelligent design is a valid scientific theory, one that should be taught alongside Darwin's well-established (and accepted) theory of evolution. Opponents, particularly those in the scientific community, see the "alternate teaching" as science in disguise, merely a thin veil for creationism. HB 368 is still pending approval from the Senate.
