Portrait Practice

So, I painted this picture of myself. I haven't really painted anything for myself for a while, so I decided this break was a good time for me to do that. Plus, I've decided to do this at the end of every year to sort of track where my art is going. Enjoy!

Little Red

For character design, we got to do this really fun exercise: finish a character by using form, shape, and line. I'm not usually inclined to animal characters, so I thought I would challenge myself to finish one. Enjoy!

Breaking Bad

Man, I love Breaking Bad. I felt the need to do a little fan art, so here it is! So stoked to find out what happens this last season.

Don't do drugs, kids. Drugs are so bad.

Waker of the Winds

Hey guys, it's been awhile since I've posted here. But now that I just finished school (for now), I'll have more time to post here. 

I've been playing through the Legend of Zelda games, and I felt the need to do some fanart. The Windwaker is one of my favorites, so I figured I's start there. I just love Toon Link! I've done two versions: one in full color, and another for a zine some people and I are doing.

Mark Twain

For one of my finals, we had to do either an illustration with Mark Twain or Kim Jong Un. I picked Mark Twain. We had Three hours in class to work on it, and this is what I came up with. Enjoy!

I've never drawn a tiger before, so I figured I'd give it a shot! I don't normally draw animals for some reason, so it was fun to figure out how to stylize one. Enjoy!

Hey guys! the Kickstarter for the project I've been working on is now live! Mages is a really fun card game that I'm doing the artwork for. Please check out the page, like, share, and if you can, donate! Every dollar counts!

This was done for one of my illustration classes. For this assignment, we had to pick a visual cliche from a list and incorporate it into an illustration. I chose cloud. My first thought is that clouds could look like brains (maybe?), so I did a bunch of thumbnails where a dude's brain was replaced with a cloud, kind of like an x-ray view. But then I thought that the clouds coming out his head would be more interesting, so I went with that, even though the cloud idea kind of turned more into smoke. Also, I keep looking at this and thinking 'Harry Potter'. Don't know if that's good or bad...

For this, I decided to do a basic painting in acrylic so I could get some cool textures. Then I added some details digitally.

White Mage

Recently I've been working on the illustrations for a game called Mages. We're doing a Kickstarter campaign starting in April! If you want to keep an eye out for this, please feel free to check out a like the facebook page! There will be updates about the game along with some artwork in progress. It's going to be great!

This is a younger mage, a prodigy if you will. He's the youngest mage of the group, and he's got a lot of talent.

The Snow Queen

For this assignment, I decided to do an illustration based off of The Snow Queen.  this is a scene near the end of the story where Gerda finds Kai in the Snow Queen's ice cave. The Snow Queen has told Kai that he can only escape and receive and pair of ice-skates is he can solve the puzzle and spell out the word 'eternity'. There's a whole lot more to the story, so if you want to know more about it, you can read the summary here.

Hansel and Gretel

Here's Hansel and Gretel! Figuring out the composition for this one was really tricky, but I think I got pretty close to what I was going for. I did a lot of research for the clothing/trees/house for this one, but I don't know how much it paid off, haha. I decided to have it take place in the late 1600's early 1700's in Germany, so I tried to research stuff from that time period.So there you have it!

I painted with acrylic!

Well, this is actually the second acrylic painting I've done in my life. The first I turned in already for grading, so I can't show it to you. Maybe later. We'll see. Anyway,  for this assignment, we had to paint a woodland creature in a non-realistic style. I chose to do something pretty simple so that I could just focs on the paint. Plus I think owls are really cool/ kind of really creepy. I learned a lot about acrylic! Mostly that painting takes WAY longer then you expect it to. Well, I already knew that, but I was reminded again. But good news is that after doing this painting  I kind of want to do more illustrations in acrylic! So we'll see if that actually happens. Maybe when I get more free time.

Figure Drawings

I finally got around to taking pictures of some of my figure drawings from last year. It actually shocked me how much my figure drawings improved after taking this class with Robert Barrett. All of these are about 2-3 hour poses except the 4th and the 6th. Here's to constantly improving!

This semester, I'm working hard to make myself to finished illustrations that look finished and have backgrounds and all of that great stuff. So I've decided to illustrate fairytales/other stories where I can use my artistic style to recreate story moments in those stories. So here's my first fairytale, Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Here ya go!

Happy New Year!

To celebrate the new year, I decided to do a new portrait of myself. Happy 2013!
