It seems I have fallen for the trap.  I too have joined the monster role-play game.

A good excuse to finally put Rift to work!  Here's a quick ref I whipped up.

Oh man

It's been a while!  I'll be shocked if people notice this.  What are you doing here anyways?

So I'm on Spring break, and one of my 'projects' is to catch up on this blog!  I have been rather busy and am continuing practice in digital art this semester.

I should have enough things marked and/or scanned in to start the show soon.  Thank you for your patience.

In the meantime, here is a little something I made for my friend's RP. Will color later!

This is all for this class folks.  I will continue to update this blog as I see fit, since this seems to be a fun little way to keep people up to date with my art.

The final was a photo-collage of a scene from a story list.  I chose Hobbiton from the Hobbit.

Okay, so if you have 3D glasses, put the red lens on the left side and look at this!

Pretty cool trick huh?  I'll try to remember that for the future.

Have a great weekend guys!

Showdown time!

Finals are around the corner, and I will upload the homework from this week soon.

For now, I should mention I was ill for a long time and fell behind in all of my classes.  Project 03 is a week late and was quite the learning experience.

I had a great deal of fun with it though.

May tweak it soon, but for now I am content.

Goodnight everyone, and stay well.

Friday before vacation

Hey, we are learning about color adjustment stuff today.

Started off with some basic recoloring.

The power keeps going out
I burnt my hand

But I will endure!  I had a mis-read about the eye due and *painted* it.  Oops.  Here's a zoom-out of the original.  Not owned by me, of course.

Three value and color studies to come, as well as a practice painting!

It has fruit and a candle.  I still have plenty of practice to do.

I feel that the fourth composition was the strongest and most true to my sketches, so I stuck with it.  Here are some value studies for me to decide how I am going to ink/paint this.

I think the first two are stronger.  I like the contrast in the second one, but not the obstructions in the glowing water.  Maybe a combination of these two?

Alright for color studies I wanted to try something for each value study.

I am seriously preferring the bottom-lit as opposed to a center-lit piece.  I like the monochromatic blue better, but I could add a little warmth to the 'water' perhaps?  We shall see.

Man, It's been a busy week

I'll be updating with my illustration stuff soon, but first!

Komo Kun! 

I'm a little sad because I honestly thought I had another week to work on this guy.  I am happy with the inkwork, notsomuch with the paints.  He didn't warp as badly as most watercolors do in my care, but enough to cut off the bottom half-inch of the paper in photo.

This was done for my African art history class, and a brief rundown- One of the masquerades that is danced in the Mali/Guinea region can be thought of like a Batman or a monsterous police agent.

Basically these guys don some blood and tar-encrusted masks made of animal parts and scold/punish people who have done wrong in the community.  They are well-respected and feared in their tribes, and often the most powerful are blacksmiths.

I don't really wish to re-write a full report, but go ahead and look up Bamana Komo headdresses sometime if you are interested.  They are really cool and ugly looking things.
