Recent photo studies! I started rock climbing again this summer(which is still the best thing I’ve ever done for my hand pain) and also realized that climbing pics make terrific figure studies! Really dynamic, but weighty/solid-feeling poses :D

I left in a bunch of dumb drawings/some pose reiterations here so hopefully you guys can see the thought process behind these too, if you’re curious!

#weekendinspiration – Spring at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area in Nevada!

Red Rock Canyon - Nevada’s first National Conservation Area - is located just 17 miles west of the Las Vegas Strip and is visited by more than one million people each year. In marked contrast to a town geared to entertainment and gaming, Red Rock offers visitors 195,000+ acres for a different kind of adventure - a 13-mile scenic drive, more than 30 miles of hiking trails, popular climbing areas, campgrounds and diverse outdoor recreation activities as well as a visitor center with exhibit rooms.

Share your photos of Red Rock Canyon NCA through our new #YourLandYourStory hashtag campaign on https://www.flickr.com/groups/yourlandyourstory/.  They may be featured in Steller story books and across our social media channels next month. 

Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area in Nevada – only 17 miles from the Las Vegas Strip – entices visitors with a 13-mile scenic drive, miles of hiking trails, rock climbing, mountain biking and more. With so many recreational opportunities, there’s something for everyone. After a few straight days of rain and dark clouds, the skies cleared to create this serene sunrise over the area’s unique desert landscape. Photo courtesy of Josh Packer.
