barn owl sketch

Just a quick sketch (with photo reference). Trying to learn more about birds, and I really like owls so I thought I would start here. Night! :)

Still can't sleep

After the last two posts I got in the drawing mood. I think the drawing reflects my sleepiness.. and I like drawing the burrowed brows.

Late night sketchbook post

Wide awake.. just another excuse to add another post. These were drawn I believe last weekend. April and I brought our sketchbooks to the barn and sat down by the baby rabbits. The turkeys were very intrigued by us, and I managed to get a few sketches of them as they stared at us over the fence. When I tried to sit down inside the grassy area with them, they puffed up and wouldn't leave me alone. The brown one kept pecking at my pencil :/

Another animation

Since I am here posting... this is my latest walk cycle. I love drawing horses :3

Tennis exercise

This is the most current version of this animation. Never inbetweened it because I wasn't happy with it yet.

Been a month since my last post, its about time I return to my blog! I will have lots of stuff to post once finals are over, so stay tuned. For now, here is a dragon I drew for the PMC drawing contest inspired by HTTYD. I like dragons. I gave this guy a jetpack :3

Let's play some tennis!

Next animation assignment... playing tennis! I know nothing about tennis other than that it involves hitting a ball back and forth over a net.. more or less. Still working out the key poses but I think this one will turn out nice =] In 3 weeks or so after it is due I will post a video for all to see.


Here is my second character animation assignment. She really wants that teddy bear.

Horse now in color

Colored the horse animation.. looks bland w/o a background so I will probably add one at some point. Horses rock.

A character from the Dark Crystal. I love the folds in her cloak. The pose is boring and such.. but I think it still looks nice. Working on getting her smoothed out so I can get her in the oven tonight. Even though it is spring break, I still need to stay on schedule. And since I will have extra time this week, I will make sure to post more pics =]

Fabric Study

Learning about hues and mixing paints is a great experience. Tough and frustrating at times.. but great. I am really happy with how this study turned out. It was an in-class assignment so I ran out of time to do the shadow and the wall, but I will most likely add it it later.

Leyendecker Baby

(wip) Hw for my painting class. Need to finish it over spring break.. I think the professor wants to commandeer it for a couple weeks. While working on this, I decided that there should be more blacksmith babies out there.

some life drawing

Just a few drawings from this month. I definitely need to make more time for life drawing.

Coat and Boots

Just made a vimeo account this week. So far so good... I used it to upload my animation assignment. Great alternative to youtube.

As for the animation, it could definitely use more tweaking and a better character design. But it's a big improvement so I can't complain too much :3

Hammer Strike

Quick screen shot of my rough animation for class. She will be attempting to ring the bell in the hammer strike game to win a prize at the carnival.

Leon takes better pictures than me.

That is my left hand. Oh, Mrs. Brisby is there too.

Life Model Painting

Painted yesterday in class. I believe it was between a 4-5 pose... but it's hard to say exactly with all the breaks for the model.

Count of Monte Cristo

Homework for painting class week 4 was to duplicate a painting by a famous painter or illustrator (black and white). I chose the Count of Monte Cristo by Mead Schaeffer. Starting to get the hang of this painting thing.

Getting closer to the end, but not quite there yet. Final is due soon so the sculpture will be done within the week. Will have better images for the final product, sorry for the bad pictures.

The foil process wasn't as pretty.. but next time will be better! Quickly on to the next step with super sculpey. Got the gray by mixing it with black and white premo (maybe it was fimo) clay. Did not like the flakiness so from now on I will stay with super sculpey only.

Mrs. Brisby

I took photos of my sculpting progress of Mrs. Brisby. At this stage I am pretty happy with the wire skeleton structure. Used the clay form of apoxy to make it sturdy. I don't think I will ever get used to the smell of that stuff...

old sculptures

Made these a couple years ago now for a sculpture class. Finally got images of them to post (with Leon's help, of course =D ) Soooo... here they are!! I am in another sculpture class this semester, hopefully it won't take as long to get up images!
