Dec 1-3

I've decided to do a drawing a day till Christmas, and since it's already the 3rd I'll just post all the little sketches I doodled earlier. There has been no editing of any sketchbook pages. I may or may not take some of these a bit further later on.

New Business Card

This is my new business card minus the phone and email address which I didn't want to post here on the web, but which are on the actual cards themselves.

Shower pin up girl.

Yet 1 more pin up girl. Not based off of some type of food this time. She's based off of a sketch I made while hanging out with friends at the 24 hour comic day last weekend. Next time I'll draw someone with their head facing the other direction.

Candy Pin Up

Here's a quickie post. Another food inspired pin up girl. This time by Christmas candy. Had a blast making her so I think I might make a few more food inspired pin up girls for fun.

Just a quick post. The challenge was to take an existing character and swap their gender. Had trouble picking a character so I went with Rick from Casablanca thus the black and white.

Mushroom girl

Same girl, but I couldn't decide which background I liked more. This is a sketch I made this weekend for DAC food challenge and I thought it would be fun to take her to fruition. I know I should try for something more fantastic and out of the box, but the thought of doing the food challenge as a pin up girl sounded like a fun idea when I was sketching her. Oh just in case you didn't know there is an actual mushroom that looks like the flower in her hair. I even tried to copy the color of the image I found of that mushroom. Sketched in pencil, colored in Photoshop CS3.

*edit. Added a top on her so I didn't have to worry about privacy settings for DAC.

NemaFromSpain on DA is having a coloring contest of his ID drawing, so I thought I'd try it in order to work on my photoshop/coloring abilities. I will update with a link to the contest later. Just thought I'd post the flat colors for now, and will post it in process hopefully a couple more times before it's finished. I was amazed at how long it takes to do flat colors.

Here's an update. There's still more work to do, but since it was floating around on my system I thought it would be a good idea to post what I've done so far.

dance early pass

This is something that I was working on earlier this year for class, and thought since I hadn't posted anything for such a long time that I would post this rough pass. Right now it is just keys and a few breakdown poses. It's not very good so I am going through it now fixing and pushing all the poses before cleaning it up and adding all the secondary animation such as the skirt and hair. With that said I will gladly take any constructive criticism you may have in order to create the best possible animation.

elephant update

I scrapped the color version for just black and white so I could focus on painting with a good value range. I might add color later, but as of now I'm happy with the practice I got working on this. This is actually based on a giant stuffed elephant that I had when I was a little kid.

elephant painting

I seem to have gotten very out of practice with painting in photoshop and am trying to remedy this problem. I decided that I didn't want to do flat colors like I usually do, so if anyone has advice I'd love to hear it. Below is the painting in progress. It's in color, but the only jpgs I made were in black and white so you'll have to just imagine the colors. I'll try and keep you updated.

The first girl is who I am animating in class right now to music. The feet are off, but I thought I'd put her up here anyways. The second was last weeks design a character challenge. I like the second from the left the best.

Just some doodles done at work of the character I am animating for the first assignment in class. Was trying to come up with a design that was different than what I normally do.
