Tiny Tigers, Alien Receptionists, and MORE!

Hello again! It's been a little while since I've gotten to update - been busy with visiting family and just trying to brainstorm and develop some ideas. I did get to do a couple paintings and sketches though - which was super fun! I really love designing characters. These were just for practice, one is a little tiger and the other is a bit stranger - an alien receptionist who works at an inter-gallactic fashion agency. This is a fun idea for me and I may play with it later. Still have a looot of sketches I want to develop further for other things! Enjoy!

Annnnd thats all for now! More things to come very soon! :D

Happy Birthday Sistah!

Happy Birthday to my lovely sister Michelle! When we were little during Christmas she would get very frustrated with how long I took to open my presents (because I would just stare at them and drool the whole time. What - I was 1!) But my parents would yell at her if she tried to open them for me...because they were "mine." So she had to watch as I shred one tiny piece off at a time - which I guess was next on the list to watching paint dry. But she doesn't have to worry about that today, because its HER day!.......And I'll be 20 soon so. This shouldn't be an issue anymore. Haha. Here's the little card I made of us for the occasion!

Process time! 

More work coming soon!

A little piece for fun!

Hey guys! 

Been working on this little thing for a day or two. Just kinda happened when I drew a cube and thought "I kinda wanna make it red and green" and then "I kinda wanna render this into something" until finally i was like "I want this to be a frozen chunk of raw meat on a popsicle stick!"

Oh the strange things that can inspire me... But I have to say, rendering ice was more difficult than I thought, especially when its around a chunk of raw meat for which I could find absolutely no reference for haha. But oh well - my gave it a try. More work to come soon!

Some fun process shots...I should try to save it in earlier stages before I get carried away haha.

Finished Pieces, Practice, Computer Animation, and more!

Hello again! So here's some stuff from all over the place - I figured I'd just get it all in this post since I'm a bit late on the blog bandwagon! (sketches are in previous post) Enjoy!

Above are some illustrationy thingies I made over the year - some more finished than others!

 Here are some digital figure paints I made today - I had some figure drawing in freshman year but hadn't had it in my curriculum this past year. However I really love figure and was thrilled to hear about open studio sessions they have in my home town. Never figure painted before but I definitely want to learn!

And finally some thumbnails I did for fun that I may develop into something soon - I have lots of sketches and ideas for digi paints that I want to make so we'll see where these fall on the list! ;)

And here are some fun process shots of my Sit Stand project at Ringling! Soo much more I wish I could have done but alas! The video loader on here seems to be going very slow so for now here is a link to the vimeo video. :) after the first link will also be the link to my demo reel!  << Sit Stand  << Demo Reel

And finally, here is a CG still life project from the year as well. Deeeefinitely a lot to be improved here, but again - a great learning assignment.

Well I think that's it for now - thanks for checkin it out. :) Expect more work in the near future!!

Sketches old and new!

 Hey guys! So I finally - FINALLY got a blog! Over the past few days I gathered a whole variety of things from this past year. First I'm going to be posting a simple sketch dump or two, and then we'll get into some of the CG stuff I've been doing and some other pieces done in my free time. Definitely a lot more on the way too! Hope you enjoy. :)
