Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone! This was actually an assignment for one of my classes. We had to do an advertisement for a toy store that was Christmas themed. It's supposed to say 'Merry Christmas' on the top part, that's why it's really empty up there. I tried a million different fonts and even tried to do hand-drawn type, but it just didn't work out. Maybe I'll try again later! Enjoy!

This semester I took an environment class essentially. This was a really good thing for me to take since I tend to avoid putting my characters into any background. I know feel like I can at least try to create some sort of environment without feeling the need to crawl into a very dark closet and hide myself from the world, haha. Anyway, I worked very hard on this so that I could create something that I'm proud of, and i can say that I'm pretty pleased with this. Still so much i need to learn, though!

Also, when I look at this, it really makes me want to explore this place and find out what's in all the drawers and nooks and crannies :]

Richard III

For my Narrative class, we had to design a 18x24 poster based on Richard III. Since I really love drawing people, I decided to do the scene where Richard is dreaming and all of the people he has killed have come to haunt him essentially.  The characters in the front are meant to be (from left to right) one of the princes, Henry VI, the other price, Lady Anne, Clarence, and....honestly I'm not sure about that last guy, haha. I was thinking Buckingham. the ones in the back are meant to represent the other five people he had murdered. This play is so confusing, I couldn't keep track of all the characters, so I had to write them down to make sure i remembered everything, haha.

I actually had a lot of fun with this one. It's quite a bit different from what I usually do, but it's nice to break away from what I usually do every once in a while.

Bad Bad World

So, for Digital Illustration, we had to make an illustration based off of a song. It didn't have to be a literal translation of the song, just kind of how it made us feel and all that jazz. For this one, I originally had a thumbnail completely different. My teacher basically told me it sucked, so I started over. After a while of trying to think of ideas, I finally got to this conclusion, and I'm actually really happy with how it turned out. There are still a few minor things I could work on, but I'm pretty content with it for now. 

Oh, and the illustration was based on the song 'Bad Bad World' but Guster.

This was done for one of my classes. We had to go with the theme 'seasons'. This is kind of a stretch, but I really wanted to draw a kid skiing. So this is what I came up with. Enjoy!

Toy Shop

For one of my classes, we had to create a character design, make it into a sculpt, and then put that character into an illustration. If you want to see the character design and sculpt, you can check it out here!

An assignment for one of my classes. Not entirely happy with it, but I don't completely hate it either. Enjoy!

Character Design and Figure Thing

 For Narrative, we had to create a character design and draw it from the front, back, and side. After that, we modeled our character out of sculpey. Using sculpey was actually really fun! Except for the part where I had to try to put the top on the legs. It really didn't want to work, but I finally got it to by  backing the top and the legs separately.

Here's a photo of it that I took with my phone. I'll be sure to take a better picture later :)

Pied Piper of Hamelin

My assignment for this project was to illustrate a folktale of some sort that wasn't from my culture. So  I decided to do The Pied Piper of Hamelin which takes place in Medieval Germany. I had a lot of fun designing the character! This semester, I'm trying to force myself to create and compose complete illustrations with backgrounds and everything. It's really tough for me, but I feel like I've improving and I'm starting to understand it a little more each time I work on an illustration.

Frog Friend

Just a quick painting based off of a sketch I did. I really love doing these because it allows me to do a little digital painting practice every once in a while


This has been a very frustrating piece, and I don't think I'm quite happy with it yet. I might work on this later after class critique tomorrow, but for now, here you go!

Billy and Damian

Commission of 
Billy Batson(Shazam) and Damian Wayne(Robin). It was really fun researching these characters and learning stuff about them

This was done for one of my classes. It was actually really fun!  I originally started with the portrait below, but after an hour or so, I wasn't feelin' it. So I did the one of the top instead. Enjoy!

Illustration Friday

Wow, this was super fun to paint. It was originally going to have simple coloring, but I just kept going with it. Enjoy!

Thursday, August 2, 2012


I just recently started working on the student film chasm. My first assignment was to design some lamps. I was a little nervous starting, but I went for it and I enjoyed designing these. Enjoy!

Illustration Friday- Lonely

This idea was originally for last weeks Illustration Friday topic, carry. But I kind of missed the deadline by accident. Luckily it fit this weeks topic, too! I hope you like it! Enjoy :)

Hey guys! So I just decided to sketch in photoshop today, and this is what came out of it. Enjoy!

Here's Korra! She was pretty fun to draw, and I hope you like it!

Also, some cool news,  I'm getting married in 11 days! So you guys might not hear much of me for a few weeks after that happens. Expect more Korra stuff after, though!

Next up is Mako!

Legend of Korra- Bolin

So, recently I decided I wanted to draw the characters of the new show The Legend of Korra. I've been a huge fan of Avatar: the Last Airbender for a long time, and this show is pretty cool too. So, here's part 1 of my contribution to this show! I think it's really fun to draw fan art. It's a good way for my to just kind of relax and just draw stuff! It's also fun to twist things into your own style. Well, I hope you enjoy. 

Also, I didn't really do an Illustration Friday this week. The topic was faded. So, Bolin earthbended the rock so hard, it faded  into the distance. Boom. There ya go. I'm sorry, I'll do better next week!

Up next is Korra!

Illustration Friday- Sight

Otherwise known as 'A Tribute to Little Me'. The first thing I thought of when I saw this topic was myself as a 7 year old. I had the most awesome huge red glasses. They were actually multicolored, but mostly red. I also had the coolest overalls. I was a cool kid. But seriously, I was the ugliest/cutest kid. Anyway, enjoy!

Illustration Friday- Hitched

So as many of you probably already know, I'm getting married in less than 7 weeks! Yay! So what better prompt that hitched? So for this prompt, I obviously decided to draw my fiance and I. I couldn't draw what my dress actually looks like, because then my fiance would see it and it would ruin the surprise. And that would be no good, so I drew myself in a different one instead. 

I hope you like it! Enjoy!

Illustration Friday- Jump

So, since it's Spring/Summer and I have a bit more free time(kind of), I've decided to keep myself a little  more busy by participating in Illustration Friday. The theme for this one was 'jump', so I went with this. Enjoy!

Book Cover

I cropped the top of this one because it isn't really a book cover, so there's no title to put in there. Below is the Book Cover version.

This one is meant to be a book cover, which was the assignment. That's why the top is empty. That's where the title would go if it had one, haha. This was my final assignment for my digital painting class. I've never drawn a wolf before, so that was interesting. I had a really fun time painting the girl. Her hair and face paint was really fun to paint. Her fur was pretty cool, too.  Enjoy!

Figures Galore!

I'm mostly posting these to show my professors in case my computer dies, haha. I don't think I've ever posted any of my figure drawings, so here's my first batch! These are all a little older. The conte is from my firs class back in Winter 2011, and the ones in pencil are from last semester, Fall 2011. 

Quick gesture. I think this one was for 3-5 minutes

7-10 minute gesture things
