Photoshop Paintings!!

Ok, so Goro Fujita is this awesome artist and I read an interview with him where he mentioned that he did one speed painting (30 min. - 1 hour) in photoshop nearly everyday for one year and how much better it made him. That sounded like a pretty good way to get better myself so I have started the challenge as well. So far I have done 8 paintings. The following are probably the best 2 of the bunch. Hope you like 'em. If you like these at all, a link to Fujita's blog is in my blog role (it's called Chapter 56), he is a lot lot better.

The Flamenco (first CG animal)

The Flamenco is my first CG character! We did the project in Maya during my summer Computer Animation class. The third pic is Flamenco crazy fuzz; same species, crazier fuzz.

More from Worthington Farmers Market

This is the second few scenes I sketched these from some of the pictures I took a couple weeks ago, this time in a little watercolor notebook so I could experiment with the medium.

Fun with Photoshop/Weekly-ish (I hope) Summer Assignment

I visited a 'character generator' site (http://www.seventhsanctum.com/generate.php?Genname=quickchar ) that I found through Travesty's Beard and decided to try and create character-based artwork on a regular basis over the summer. This piece was done with the generator's suggestion of "a crippled mercenary". I drew the guy in my sketchbook then photoshopped him into a Parisian street scene I grabbed off Google. Then I painted/drew over the scene and just played with some effects. Here it is:

"Kaku" - I guess it means "antler" in Japanese

This was my "storyboarding" class final. I won some and lost some on this project, but I wanted to show it to you anyway. Enjoy (maybe)!

From the Farmers Market

Took some photos at the Worthington Farmers Market today and worked from a few of them in my sketchbook. Used micron pen, then added color pencil.

I hope to work from some more and will add those later. I need a scanner.

In The Show - "My Deer" and "The Reader" (redux)

Just found out I got two drawings in the end-of-year student art show juried by CCAD faculty. Pretty cool!

The first piece, "My Deer" is my final for Drawing class and has not yet been on the blog:

The second has already made an appearance, "The Reader":

Self Portrait

This is my final for painting class (not even turned in yet!) and it is probably the first thing I've done of me that actually looks something like me (accept the eyes, they have a sort of anime creepiness going on). It was done in acrylic paint on masonite, roughly 24" x 18".
