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.

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.

in which there are many a character

so this is all part of our first project in Concept/Character/Environment, which basically involves creating characters.

the first part:
to create a bunch of silhouettes and doodles and then refine them into different characters....basically.

i like the poofy girl, but i wanna try more designs for her because that one's a bit stiff?

the second part:
to find forms and faces in textures in photographs and refine them into fully rendered characters.

ehhh....i like these better. the tiny leaf girl is best friends with the pointy guy. C:

the third part:
working on it! it'll consist of forcefitting two things into one creature. the first character will be an animal and an insect (marmoset and harlequin cabbage bug for me); the second is an animal and a vehicle (i got a wolf and a chopper).
....we'll see how this turns out.

in which i post my first illustration project

the project:
to create a full-length, self-portrait with at least 1 rendered shape, 1 flat shape, and 1 patterned shape.

not quite exactly like meeee, but i think those are purty colors and that's all i care about right now. P: nina took the reference photo and um....yes, i have a wonderful red trench coat. mayhaps i will dress as carmen san diego at some point? mmmmmmm....

adios, muchachos!


ps, i will update more often with stuffs now that i have stuffs to update with. hope you followed that sentence! :D

in which i rush off to painting

for some reason, i'm feeling especially guilty about never updating this blog enough! so here are some of the unfinished digital paintings i did over the summer.

i really wanna finish that pink and yellow one, but i think i wanna take it in a completely different direction. oh well, at least you can tell i've been playing with color.

anyway, i'm off to do some oil painting. like...IRL oil painting, not just the Painter X kind of oil painting. it's much messier. XP
