Got a new camera for Christmas, so I decided to mess with it today and took some pictures of random shit in my dimly lit apartment.

My cats. Look! They're spooning!

This is where I draw. The cabinets are my reference library. Magazines, anatomy books, etc. The long box has old Top Cow comics in it. It was partially ruined when I lived with my wife at her parent's house and the bedroom was flooded by a leaky roof.

The bike isn't usually there, and the window is usually open during the daytime. But it's 6pm-ish here.

You can see some of my framed sketches from WWChi hanging on the walls. One is "The Buddy Wall" and the other is "The Kill Bill Wall"

This Oeming Bride sketch was a gift from Jeffery, Noble, and Nathan at the end of WWChi. I kissed and hugged them all. They didn't see it, but I fuckin cried, too. Thanks guys! Thanks Mike!

If you know who Scott Iwahashi is, and you will one day if you don't, here's HIS take on The Bride, plus a Manji commish that no one has ever seen.

Off to the right of that area, is the HUGE Batman mural I "sketched" onto the wall with black paint and a sharpie. Based on a Mignola Gotham By Gaslight cover.

Some Andy Lee paintings. The pregnant Bride, and Buddy Holly as an assassin.

DISCLAIMER: I'm a shitty photographer. Everything is slightly green and out of focus because I had to zoom in in a dimly lit room and use a flash.

Adjust the white balance
Open your aperture
Use higher ISO setting

Second time using it.

As soon as I learn how to do whatever the hell you just said, I'll give it a try.

I have a anatomy book that uses cadaver photos. (which was way more useful to me than the others due to the fact it was easier to tell what was what in surgery) any hoo if you ever need to borrow it your welcome to it.;)
