If you don’t recognize that, it’s my buddy, Erik’s original comic book character Dynamax.

Erik likes to get his favorite comic book artist to draw their own versions of his character, and I thought it was the perfect choice for my next attempt. The above is my take, at least at my current skill level, and I think it’s pretty good.

When I went to class for the critique today, I couldn’t decide which painting I liked better so I put them both up for review. Since bender is more well known he got more positive feedback, but overall everyone was impressed with both paintings. This secured my first 100% grade for this class!

You don’t understand how ecstatic that makes me, it’s been driving me insane that I wasn’t getting the grades I wanted in either this class or math. I really wanted to get at least one 100 before the end of the month when I would move on to other classes.

mission accomplished with that, and that means it was a great day.
