Hey Ladies.

This is my final for figure drawing class - the image I used was a photo by Henri Cartier Bresson.

I just realized I hadn't shared the finished version of the short animation yet. It was an assignment calling for us to animate an effect.

A tree in a truck (updated)

Ok. Woke up this morning and re-worked this piece a little bit. Here is the new (est). The middle shot is one with a little extra glow... not sure if I like it. The old is below.

Next in line of the portfolio pieces. Did about 10 hours of painting today... exhausted but pretty happy.

The Klatch (new and improved)

New Version:

Just finished these character designs this morning for my portfolio. They're a family of coffee bean farmers.

Any thoughts?

Drink it in!

I said I was going to be posting A LOT this week. Well, for one of my portfolio pieces I'm doing a line up of characters I made up. This painting is the momma/boss of a group of coffee pickers who live in the mountains. I'm calling them the Mountain Klatch (Dennis Laycock, shout out! Taught me the word "klatch".)

Anyway, there are five of them but I was really happy with how this first one turned out so I thought I would post her before I head off to class. I got there palette from a picture of a cup of coffee I grabbed online.

I'll probably do some more tweaks before I finish her, but consider this the almost done phase.

Cat or not to Cat?

This is the piece 2 of some new concept work for my internship application. I can just have it without the cat as well. Feedback is suuuuper welcome.

Red MF'in Riding Hood

So, I am getting my portfolio ready to apply for the Disney Visual Development Internship and here is the first piece. Big thanks to Rico for go over a BUNCH of painting/Photoshop stuff with me yesterday... I think he'll recognize a number of those new skills at work in this piece.

Anyway, I'll be posting a lot this week as I get my portfolio ready, probably a mix of new stuff as well as some re-worked older pieces.

Some Inks Washes

Just some ink washes I've done over the last few weeks. The first one is from an image I got on the webs, the rest are from observation or my own photos.

New Background! Troll Bridge!

I originally started this painting with the intention of putting a troll (I watched Troll Hunter last week) in it. Unfortunately I had to finish it up sans troll so I had something done for my background painting study. I think I may go back and add the bridge's inhabitant later though...
