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 :]

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.

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.
