    good-fortune's sketchtastic-ness

    EDIT 10-7-09

    I have a very diverse style and I don't think people know that when they skim my first few posts. Here's a sample of my more recent work....I'm slowly starting to broaden my portfolio towards game related concept art as opposed to the animation geared port I currently have.

    I like what I see thus far. The gestures are impressive, and I also like the stylized pictures too

    comic character

    i'm taking sequential art right now. i have 9 weeks to come up with a story, create characters, pencil 5 pgs, ink then color those, and have them published in a class comic book. quite a tall order. i can make a film in that same amount of time, but sheesh no time to mull anything over.

    well here are the characters for said project. it's halloween. she's friends with the cute and teethy creature. and of course you need bullies to threaten the creature's candy supply. i'll post the panels as i work more on them.

    I got sketch books filled with gesture drawings. I really enjoy looking at them; as much any finished work I make. I figured I'd compile some of my favorites. Slapped some color on for readability. I'll post more down the line.

    here are some sketches i did for character design class. on the barista i tried to emphasize the curves in different proportions. and the fellow in the glasses was inspired by my middle school teacher. yes, he looks young. he was only 23 when he taught us.

    o'lak is based off of jennadelle's style. i was challenged to make a human instead of her preferred anthro characters. it was tricky balancing his humanoid form with her animalistic qualities. i'll post up the ortho views when i'm through nit picking.


    man, i love not being grounded to one style.

    thesis character sketches

    i'm the production designer on my friend's 3d thesis. it'll be a dark surrealist inspired animation. it's been quite the challenge for me, because i'm not well versed on the movement. i hit up the regulars like dali and such for reference material. but i'm really a fan of alexander lyamkins character designs because he applies the surrealist style to various body shapes.

    anywho, here's my sketches thus far. the first set i was just fooling around with making grotesque characters and not really worrying about surrealism. the next few were getting closer to what i wanted. i don't think i've gotten quite where i want to be yet. the final design should be ready very soon though.

    Taiylz: Thank you. I'll have to check out that blog now. I greatly owe my skills to the character design class I took with Nancy Beiman. She has a book out, which I highly recommend if you want to create your own. I'd say it's the best out there because you learn to draw in any style, not just the author's.


    I picked up a movie called Shaolin Monk. It was perfect for gesture studies with all of those full body shots. I tossed some paint on my favorites.

    I was recently taking a class about teaching art to children. We actually got to make a number of art projects so that we could understand the format for teaching. At the end I designed my own lesson and I chose Chinese paper cutting as the theme. This is my sketch for it. I shaded out the parts that would be cut away so that I could make sure the paper would still be connected as a whole. I rushed while cutting the sketch so I might just recreate a digital work in Illustrator. I can't wait to show it off!

    nancy and i met up to co-design her film's characters. we needed them more simplified and instantly read-able so this is what we came up with. so long as she's happy, i'm happy.

    ladies!

    lately i have only been in the mood to draw ladies. they're the easiest thing to sketch mindlessly.

    working on my port

    so i've finally graduated. while i enjoyed doing work for each of my thesis films...i wish i had the chance during school to make my portfolio top notch. thus i've been hardcore arting these past few weeks. i've challenged myself to make a (sketch) painting/drawing a day. one of my projects has just been picking up this old painting i started last summer. this is still a WIP mind you.

    So I've been busy polishing my portfolio and making my website/business cards. I designed the koi fish for the aforementioned. Life drawings are next on my agenda.
