Hello there my dear internets,

My it has been quite some time since we last spoke. Well its most likely because i'm at school now, and that tends to take up a lot of my time. I would however like to share with you some sketches I did for my homework, granted, this is one page out of three, and there are more to come, but I want to share regardless.

Basically we are just doing sketches of people, mostly focusing on the head. Making sure we get the structure and whatnot done correctly. For my models, I creeped through my facebook and did a picture of my panda bear Austin, my sister and my brother, I was delightfully surprised at the likeness in all the sketches.

If you click it, it will get larger, so you can see with a little more detail. 

I enjoyed these, and I hope the three pictured here will also like them. Anyway, that's literally all I wanted to say, thanks for listenin' internets.

Affectionately yours,

Sir Polar

The Crazy Dream I Done Promised Y'all!!!!

Okay so here's the deal, last post I promised that I would elaborate on the crazy dream I had a while back. I don't really remember dreams to often, so the fact that I was able to recall any of my dream when I woke up, let alone still remember my dream even now, like, 2 weeks later is slightly unprecedented! So anyway, instead of bothering you with how amazed I about my dream recall, I'll just talk about the dream now. I think the dream can be broken down in a simple math equation:

                     Super Smash Brother's + Tron + Inception = My ridiculous dream

Yes I know that is a hodge podge of craziness and that the equation itself is nearly impossible to make any coherent sense out of. BUT regardless to its terrible coherency, I shall explain. So it starts out with a box of old video games, nintendo 64 and playstation, basically the core game systems of my childhood. The box on top was mario 64, a magnificent game in itself, but now seemed darker and grungier...because let's face it, he's a plumber...it's not a happy position. Anyway he was much more hardcore and the enemies actually looked like they could indeed pose a threat in any given situation.

(This is what dream-state Mario looked like)

Anyway, as he was jumping on little mushroom's heads and splattering them into oblivion, he realized that one of those giant bullets was headed right for him, so naturally, being Mario he jumped into a green pipe. Although, when he jumped into the warp pipe, the action took me out of his world back to the box of games, where you see "the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time". The warp tube then shot Mario out into Hyrule field in the Zelda universe. Not only did he see Link, but Link was super awesome, like a crazy hardcore elf fighter, and Mario had adjusted his costuming as well. He was no longer the familiar overall wearing italian stereotype, but now he looked more medieval. The two go through Hyrule field and fight random minions of Ganondorf, then Link ends up playing the ocarina, the song of time, and then they warp into an even stranger world than that of Zelda or Mario. 

( This is crazy Dream-world Link) 

Anyway, the two actually end up on a strange alien planet, only to be attacked by some weird mutant beast, then of course, they are rescued in the nick of time by the best female bounty hunter ever, Samus. Like before, Mario's clothes have changed into a more appropriate space looking outfit, as well as Link, now they are all corresponding in their styles. 

Eventually they go into a few more levels of games, then the last game they are in gets put into a nintendo 64, and now all these characters must face the game itself, and the non playable characters, as well as the CPU. 

I wont diverge all the details, cause they are my IP, but thats what I got for y'all so far, hope you enjoyed the craziness that was my dream. I shall bid you adieu, and you all have a wonderful day!

Guys...My Arms Taste Like CANDYYY!!


Welcome to 2011 everyone, I know there is a ton that I have to look back on and see how blessed I am to be, well quite frankly, alive, among other things! Anyway, I know my break from school has been a fun one, not exactly productive as far as art goes, but considering while i'm in school, I beat myself up getting my art done, so I guess it's much needed.

I saw a good amount of movies while I was on break, so now its time for : (drum roll people)...

     (And sometimes foreign films, but I don't watch those a lot so don't worry about that too much)

Most recent movie is: TRUE GRIT

If I was a monkey and had hands for feet, I would hold up four thumbs for this movie. It was wonderful. Even when we got to the movie late and had to sit in the second row like 2 inches from the screen, almost to the point to where I had to contort myself into some sort of gargoyle like position. Putting all that aside, it was an amazing movie. Jeff Bridges is one of the most dynamic actors I think I've ever seen, where one minute I can watch "The Big Lebowski" and see him as the Dude, then see a commercial for 'True Grit" and see him as Rooster Cogburn and both characters are completely convincing. I loved this movie, the story pulled me in to the point that I thought we were only in the theater for an hour, whereas it was really about 2, the movie just made you lose track of time. The whole cast was wonderful, and I recommend this movie to any western fan, action movie fan, fan of period pieces, fans of pistol toting sassy 14 year old girls, I think what I'm trying to say is: EVERYONE MUST GO SEE THIS MOVIE!


This movie wins my "WHOA" award for 2010...first of all, Christopher Nolan can keep making films until he dies as far as I'm concerned...as long as his cinematographical  offsprings have at least a few chromosomes from "Inception." It's just that good. I know a lot of people have problems with movies like 'Inception" stating the plot doesn't make sense, or it's just too complicated. Personally I like movies which make you think, and the fact that I saw this over a month ago and I'm still thinking about it should speak for the brilliance of the film.


Stupid...nothing happened. There are western movies that you can see and sometimes you're like, "huh, well, that doesn't make sense, but creative freedoms are cool, at least the characters are believable" and I'm pretty sure I never felt that through the whole movie...I think the major question I had was "why?" and then I was like "Oh! look it's Megan Fox, she's still untalented. Wait, she's playing a prostitute. I
guess that's believable"


Okay so "Psych" isn't a movie it's a TV show, but it's still awesome. It follows two friends, one who pretends to be a psychic, and they create fake firm to help police in investigations. This show is hysterical, I laughed so hard watching this first season. I look forward to watching more of this awesome show!

Okay so this post is super long as is, so Im going to complete my list of movies at a later date. I hope you enjoyed this post, it's a lot of type, so I'll assume thats probably a resounding "no" but either way, deal with it! Next post there will be art work, I had a sweet dream about video game characters that I'm drawing some of, so stay tuned to see that stuff!
