50 Hands animation

video
I do happen to be alive, just very busy and not very good at the whole updating blog thing. But now that the semester is almost complete I can start putting up the work I've been doing. First up is this hand animation. For Life drawing class we had to draw 100 hands, 50 each half semester. And for this half we had the option to animate it. So Ta Da!

Afterlife Gallery

These are pieces I did for a group gallery show called Afterlife at the beginning of the month. I always liked mythology so with a theme called Afterlife I jumped at the chance to have fun with it. In Hades, there are five rivers named: Acheron, Cocytus, Lethe, Plegethon, and Styx. I personified them based on their attributes and am very pleased with the result. All of them are done in photoshop.

Orchid Painting

This is a painting I did a few weeks ago. It may look like water colour, but it's done in gouache.


Surprise Semester 4 Art

I knew these were hanging around somewhere- finally found 'em.  It was an assignment to render the same image seven different ways and I chose a variation of the Coin Operated Boy book cover I did a while back. There's only five here because I already posted the digital version and the oil painting ran off somewhere...

Archangels

This is another assignment that was done in semester four. We had to choose a theme from a list or any theme we wanted and run with it. The final output of this was a little booklet, like a character manual sort of deal, but for the purposes of this blog I'm showing them individually.

Here are six of them: Azrael, Barachiel, Gabriel, Michael, Raphael, and Uriel. 

I'll admit, the TV show Supernatural was my main influence here.

Semester 4- Concept

These pieces are from my concept class. I designed two characters, my version of Tinkerbell and Tootles from Peter Pan and did a pencil rendering, body poses, character rotation, expression sheet, digital, and water colour renderings for each. The background  in the Tinkerbell and Tootles water colours were done in photoshop.

Semester 3 Stuff


Caricature of Bruce Campbell!




Book cover for the song Coin Operated Boy, by the Dresden Dolls



Editorial illustration for a mock psychology magazine




These last two are for a group project. We had to take a story and do the concept work for it. These are rotations of the lost boys, Tootles and the twins. In the style of the short animated movie Taboo by students of Gobelins in France.

Favourite pieces, Semester 2 Edition

 Crazy Cat Lady! We had to do an anthropomorphic drawing for Structural Drawing class so I looked into my cat encyclopaedia book (yes I have one), and there was a picture of a hairless cat. I thought the two fit purrfectly- haha I just couldn't resist!

 Enter the vector impala. (This one is done in illustrator over a picture I found on google image search). I chose the car because the impala is the car they drive in Supernatural...the one in the show is black though.



 As far as collages go, I'm pretty happy with this one cause they aren't really my thing. My cousin told me about a nightmare she had where the song You are my Sunshine was playing, and I thought that was pretty creepy so I filed it away in the back of my head for later use, and it came in handy! So I made a collage of a nightmare. (Most of the images are from google image search). Well it creeps me out, god I hate baboons... and dolls.

 This is a caricature of a friend I did in the style of Fairly Odd Parents. It's funny, I was trying for ages to do a realistic style caricature and it just wouldn't work, and then I was looking up styles for a completely different assignment and was practicing it. And then this just flew from my pencil in like seconds.

 Say hello to shy guy, (I just found a picture of him on google) and fooled around in Illustrator. I liked how it looked with the oil brushes.



 This pretty thing is the snailmobile. Done in both Photoshop and  (99%) Illustrator He absorbs whatever he can find on his quest to take over the world. So watch out.


We had to design a beer or wine label for ad. class, hence Tipsy Goat Cabernet.
