Life Drawing

Hey guys,
I had a rather successful time at life drawing last night. I like to think the videos I watched over the weekend on Sycra Yasin's youtube channel and having started the Pencil Kings Figure Drawing Challenge have something to do with that, lol. Sycra's video on drawing shoulders was very helpful. The proportion practice from the figure drawing challenge has been even more helpful, since that's something I've struggled with for a long time. Lol, looking at these, I feel like I was replaced with someone who knew how to draw. Hopefully this improvement won't turn out to have been a fluke.

Cougar Studies

Hey guys,
I'm thinking about animating a big cat test and did some cougar studies for practice. I did these using Mischief (, as my trial is going to expire soon and I haven't used the program enough to make a decision on whether or not its worth buying. Do any of you have experience with Mischief? The infinite zoom continues to blow my mind and its been the only program where I feel like I can really (comfortably) draw digitally. That being said, it lacks things like pressure sensitivity controlled opacity (they say that's on their to do list), the ability to make selections that aren't squares, and only have a few brushes. Have any of you guys tried painting with the program or anything? Please feel free to let me know how you like it if you've used it!
