in which things get oilier

two more pieces from painting this year. the water glass and the white project (which we had limited use of white in, which explains why everything is so...rainbow-y).

all for now!

in which my fall 09 figure portfolio will live

in which my life is revealed

for the "Day in the Life of" project for illustration in conjunction with Sint Lucas in Antwerp. it got chosen for some crazy gallery stuffs, which i guess is cool. i just tried to make my rather dull life a bit more interesting. XD~kelsey
p.s. i might soon be uploading my entire figure portfolio, also.

in which a character reoccurs

for concept, our latest project has been digitally illustrating one of our characters from the first project. so remember my little leafy girl character from earlier in the semester?

here she is again! with a face! and a snail! :Ddone in Corel Painter X.
i'll be doing another illustration like this (probably with a different character) for the next project in that class, too.

in which i play god

here's the third part of the first assignment from Concept/Character/Environment. it consisted of force fitting two things into one creature.
the first was an animal and an insect. i got marmoset and harlequin cabbage bug. i like this character, but i really need to redraw that pose, it got a bit stiff. anyway, i would totally have this creepy little guy as a pet. :)the second was an animal and a vehicle, and i got wolf and chopper (the motorcycle, not a helicopter). this gave me an insane amount of trouble because i basically can't draw mechanical things to save my life, but i'm fairly pleased with the end result.

more to come (eventually)! stick around!

in which i eat cake

actually, this is old news, but i'd thought i'd share it with you nonetheless. a couple weeks back i made....STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE! and it was delicious. although it's not really my usual art, it's still pretty mouthwatering, i think.mmmmm....the moral of the story is that i should make this more often.

in which pages unfold

finally got around to scanning some thiiiings. but i feel like i should space out updates...
for starters, here's some of the stuff from my (current) sketchbook.
this one's from the very beginning of summer. it says the date and time and everything up there! yes, i was drawing my leg in chruch.this next one was drawn soon after that. anyway, just a fun, creepy thing? the beginning of my fonting. XD

and these're from portrait night/the coffee house. same night, two different locales.
