My Dad Rocks!

Hey Guys!
So in my storyboarding class we had the assignment to do a one pannel board that conveyed a story (I'll post that later). I decided that I wanted to do something based on me and my father so my mom sent me this picture of us.

Super cute right! So I did these little characters of us to kind of flesh out the designs and got this!

I love you daddy!

Still Life Composition Studies!

Hello!
Second assignment in one week! Amazing I know. So in 3D class we have to create a still life in maya and Brent (teacher-man) wanted to see some ideas. 

Confused? Well I am too. I cannot chose between a more conventional composition with glass, wood, ceramics and leaves. And a crazy one with an octopus wizard. Decisions decisions.

We also had to use Illustrator to create a composition using goemetric shapes.
Love you guys!

First Assignment!!

Hey Guys!
I know it has been a while since I last posted (since I announced I got in the program). But I am back! The semester has just got going and I am turing in my first assignment to Kelly tomorrow! We had do design a character (kinda based on us) and then storyboard them coming into a room. So this is my character. Her name is Sidney. I showed the sketch then the line-work then color and finishing up with shadows! What do you think? Not to shabby for a rudimentary photoshop user!



And here are the boards. She is not very coordinated I must say.






I had fun with  it. :)

More Drawing for Animation Stuff!

Hey Guys!
So for this assignment we were supposed to take our re-designed designer toy and re-design it again! We were supposed to re-design it in the style of warhammer 4000 which is basically a strategy game with little plastic figurines. 

So here is the redesign: 
 Here are the knowledge studies:

And the creative studies.
What do you think?

Figure...Again...But With a Brush Pen!!!

Hi!
I know I know there has been a ton of figure this month but these were done with a Staedtler mars graphic 300 duo...that mean a really nice brush pen that my drawing for animation professor (joe olson) recommends.

It was hard to work with at first as you can see:



Then I figured out that I work best if I start with the head, to down the torso, and then finish off the rest of the body:















This is my favorite one:

Love you guys!
