Background Painting

My most recent assignment for my digital illustration class was to paint a background for an animated movie, or just any movie, really. Since I hate painting/drawing extreme realism (except for people, kinda) ,  my obvious choice was to do paint a background with more of a stylized feel to it. Since I avoid drawing backgrounds at all costs, I had a hard time starting this one. Eventually, I got around to it. And here it is!

For the assignment, we had to do different layers for the foreground, mid ground, and background. I had four case you were wondering. So yeah, this is what I made. It could still use a little bit of work. Some areas are still a little messy and stuff, but oh well. I hope you like it. Let me know what you think. You're the best.

Oh, I forgot to tell you guys, I got engaged on the 9th of February! Crazy stuff! Well, I'm super stoked to get married to my bestest friend, so that's pretty cool. Maybe I'll do a post about how he asked me so I don't have to tell the story a million times. We'll see.

Doll Design

So, this assignment was done for my digital illustration class. Our assignment was to design a toy of some sort and draw it from 3 different angles. Since I love character design, I decided to go for that sort of approach and design a doll. It was a little tricky getting all three of the angles to look the same, but I think I did a pretty good job for my first turn-around sort of thing. Enjoy!
