Is your fictional character a Mary Sue? Well, here's a online test to find out.

I don't know if it's entirely accurate but it was interesting and raised questions I never even considered about my characters. The test looks long but it goes pretty quickly.

So much goodness.

Video Sketching Session 03-03-2011

This is actually my second YouTube video upload, but it’s the first one I’ve done that has me sketching. Be warned... it's 15 minutes long and the video got cut off due to my not knowing the YouTube time limit. I’ll try to upload a new video every week and hopefully I'll get better at this video routine.
