Did you PS Patrick and Francis onto the monitor in the pic with the semi-nude girl? lol, I can imagine someone saying "Noone will even notice when there's an almost nude girl there."

yep, awesome modells! a lot of fun.
why do all the pro´s use a wacon intuos instead of a cintiq? is it just a matter of the price?

So did the models have those costumes, or did someone hand 'em over and say, here, put this on?

Yes, The screen was shopped.
The costumes were created and designed by Jennifer Ayers (http://www.ayersdesign.com/). Her booth was next door to ours and she dressed up our models.
Back for day 2

What a weekend.
Far too many showed up for the TAD event at WizardCon at the POD here in Austin. The costumed event poured in, and toured the space and the artists all stuck around to enjoy time working with the models and enjoying music and a lot of really interesting minds from the professional community.
Here are some pics.
and finally, another Dr Sketchy's went down a few hours ago: http://theartdepartment.org/general/con/IMG_7234.jpg
More to come

And some more. The ladies are TAD's very own Alison who helps handle Admission and Samantha who is my assistant. They were muses for the evening as others were doing sketching, I was taking a few minutes to get some shots of their outfits made by Jennifer Ayers who has joined TAD now. Incredible costumes. That is the stairs behind my office right in the main portion of the ATX pod.
And some shots from the con too...even one of the guy who played Chewie in Star Wars. :)
Scooter let's Batman know "he knows".
Chewie - His hands were huge. Perfect guy for that character.

That's a great shot of Peter Mayhew, Jason. That dude has a fantastic head.
Good to see you guys are still busy doing cool stuff. Looks like a lot of fun!
