Yeah, I decided to post up a bunch of my old pencil tests, as rough and beginner as they may be. I still don't know if I want to become a character animator or not. At any rate...

This is a sack pantomine from last year. Very simple, but decent considering this was my first semester ever truly animating.
The next assignment was to make a cat jump. Oh yes, the cat will jump, for that is what he'll do.


Finally, we had a weekend to put together a pencil test of whatever we wanted to animate. I never fully finished it, and the last half is just keys, but I still like the first half. It's pretty stupid, though.


At the moment of this post, I have ten more days to finish my final 30 second film (which is rapidly become 30+ seconds, but I digress... >.<). I'll post that up once it's "finished", although I plan on working on it over winter break so maybe I can have it finalized next semester. Wish me luck! :3

Exercise in class where we had to make a matte medium collage using bits of our own artwork. I didn't feel like printing out anything special, so I used some leftover photocopies of figure studies and on-site gestures as my bits.

Pastel Sketches

I've always liked the texture of pastels, so I've been trying to improve myself in that medium. Here are a few 'successful' pastel sketches. They're all either drawn from observation or using imagination.

I've started Conceptual Illustration with Barron Storey, and I must say, I'm really enjoying it. ^_^ Our first assignment was to develop a portrait of a rising star. I chose Ellen Paige, and this is the finished portrait I made for her. We had to make several "roughs" before we got to the finished piece, so I posted the roughs underneath. All of these were created using photographic scrap (since I can't get Ellen to pose for me >.<), so all credit for the poses, etc. are copyright to the respective photographers and/or movie production. I only drew the images.

Random illustration

Not really fine art, but I thought I'd draw a little something for myself as well as practice a bit with Photoshop. I'm probably going to keep updating with a few of these for the summer, since I'm trying to rediscover why I'm pursuing art as a career. It has no background, which inherently bothers me, but I feel done with this image.

It's a sorceress with her monster steed. :3

Figures and stuff

Figures for 114 (done during the Palo Alto figure session) and a painting exercise for 113B.

That's all. *jig*

Tree overload

Even more trees. Each one of these took me about half an hour to sketch in paint, so I am slowly cutting down the time to paint these.

I painted some color studies of trees for Tidepool. Each one took me about an hour or so to paint, so I want to work on "sketching" more quickly with the brush this weekend.

Winter Sketchbook


113A Painting

Decided to finally post up my 113A painting. I'm proud that I got over some of my painting phobia, although the skills are lacking in many, many respects.

I'll crosspost some of my winter sketchbook images later on as well.
