Learning to draw...

I've recently started using one of those "learn to draw manga" books to teach myself to draw.  One of the exercises in the book inspired me to give on of the Firefly characters a shot.  I kind of liked how it turned out, so I though I'd inflict it on share it with you.

Pensive Bones

(no subject)

I'm in a freshman seminar class and our theme is "Utopian Futures as Portrayed Through Science Fiction." Our final project is to write a five page paper, present a 15 minute power point presentation, and put up a website analyzing an extrapolation of the present as shown in any science fiction future.

C'mon, there was absolutely no way I wasn't going to pick Firefly.

I chose to do my paper on the portrayal of current globalization trends as portrayed through the series. The main emphasis is on the blending of Indian and Chinese culture into the decidedly American western culture.

I'm writing about the clothing, the written script, and parts of the culture.

I was wondering if anyone had any other ideas.
