2012 Finals Week

Well everyone, it's that time again. It's finals week at school. I have been very busy, and I'm feeling really good about everything that's happened this semester. Not only has this been my hardest semester, but it's also been my most rewarding semester for a number of reasons.

I graduate on Friday, and I will have completed my BFA :') Everything has happened so fast.

I'm going to end this before it gets too sappy. Maybe I'll save that for a separate post. But for now, here is an image that describes how things are going down right now.

This is pretty accurate. Happy holidays!

Pokemon: Rattata Edit

I just wasn't happy with my Rattata at all, and I finally got around to editing it.

Pokemon: Charmeleon!

In an attempt to focus on writing a paper ... I gave up after a long time of struggling and painted a Charmeleon. Somehow I think this was time well spent.

Commission: Tree Drawing

I recently completed a commission for a client and this was the result :) I really enjoy drawing trees and giving them their own personalities, so this job was perfect for me.

Digital Painting: The Lost Woods

In the spirit of Halloween, I decided to do this painting. It took about a half hour to do.

This was also an exercise in working with values. I have a lot of troubles getting a good range of values in pretty much all of my work, so I hope that by doing more black and white paintings/work, I will improve.

ALSO: This painting marks the beginning of a new personal project I am working on. In addition to this painting, I've started doing lots of character sketches, and I've done other story related things. I don't want to say too much about it now, but I'll probably be working on this project on and off for awhile (which means, don't expect consistent posts relating to it haha). Anyway, I'm very excited about where this project is going!

Speed Painting: Dark Haired Girl

I did a quick speed painting last Friday night. It's simple, and fun. I love the colors, and this turned out just how I wanted it to. I wasn't particularly concerned with how accurate or good it would look, I just wanted to have fun :)

I got this stalk image from ~awakeandsleeping on Deviantart.

September Challenge: Week 1

I really enjoyed doing the Shark Week challenge, so I've decided to keep the magic alive for myself. So, from now on, each month I will do a different challenge that I make up.

This month's challenge: Draw 1 animal every day. However, drawing animals is not too much of a challenge for me. To make this better, I decided that I'd have to draw 1 animal every day that I don't draw very much. Ever.

I know that today is the 9th, and I only have drawings up until the 6th. I have all of the drawings done, I just don't have time right now to edit them all and upload them haa. Obviously I had more time on some drawings than others (the beaver and the raven) so I'm going to try and keep things more consistent for the future, I think. Keeping up with this is hard, but that's why they call it a challenge (yeah, I'm corny). I'm going to upload all of my new drawings each week, so next Saturday you'll see all of the drawings I have so far for September. Until next time!

September 1st: Donkey

September 2nd: Sea Lion

September 3rd: Raven

September 4th: Skunk

September 5th: Turtle

Animation: Satyrs

This was my final for Animation 1. It's nowhere near being 'finished' but it was good enough for the time allotted. I hope one day I will finish this completely.

I'm sorry for the horrible quality lol
