Crabs. New Study Collage

Same idea with the horses. Small goals make it easier to focus.
I'm in Berkeley now, been a week since I landed here. Kinda rushed to get here on Saturday, hoping to get to sketch bomb, ended up abandoning the idea after I took the long way around, since I set my GPS to avoid tolls, and struggling with the parking. Typical Itamar. Slowly building a schedule and expanding the network, still grasping to the hope I'll find a job soon.

Flail Dragon

Flail dragon, from concept sketches, to color studies, to sampled colors from photos, to vector. Pixel art next?
This past week has been painful. I had full intentions of leaving Saturday, the 7th, and reserved a car, thinking everything will go nice and dandy like it did when I rented in Columbus. At the rental office I found myself failing the credit check and denied a car, losing $50 in the process since I counted as a "no show." My dad mailed me a newly activated credit card to replace the expired one still in my wallet, which should have arrived by Saturday, but is now waiting to clear through US customs, and I have no idea how long that will take.

1911.2.M Tail number 513

The Marine variant, complete with arresting hook for carrier operations, delivered July 3rd 1913.
This is the last version of these planes. Learned how difficult it can be to make these orthographic views, finding myself returning to what I thought I had done right to correct things.

1911.2.D Tail no. 223

Delivered April 26th 1913 to the Kholodnia Army Air Defence Branch for zeppelin based operations.
Progress on my heron, too. I'm at the minor tweaks phase.
Moving on Saturday morning. It was fun, Austin. Maybe we'll meet again someday.
