Painting Assignment One: Paint Something.

We have pretty much free reign for the first painting assignment this year. We're only limited to it being an outside environment. I decided arbitrarily on a desert. Deserts are cool, so hey, why not. Some google searches for what deserts actually look like and this is what I came up with:

The next stage of the assignment was to take this lineart and explore lighting through three different tonal studies.

That brings us to the present, taking one of the tonals and exploring three different colour schemes. I already had colours in my head that I thought of after seeing a picture. The first two I approached slowly and thought about, but the third one is just me going crazy. It had taken me hours to do the first two rough colours ideas and I couldn't think of anything good to do for the last one, so I just started painting. It was originally green, but the desert looked more like a forest that way. Anyway, enjoy:

The final painting is due in a week, so expect to see it in the near future!

Nursery Rhyme Storyboards

We have an assignment in our Storyboard class to take two nursery rhymes and interpret them into storyboard beat panels. We needed to do a character line-up for each poem as well as a minimum number of beat panels. here's what I ended up with. This first one is based off of a poem called "The Leader" by Roger McGough. I used the story of Icarus to portray it (templates by Lawlzy).

This next one is based on the poem "My Father" by Kaye Umansky. I couldn't think of any fun situation for it, so I just did it pretty much literally. The only semi-original idea I went with was to make the main character's friends other Haloween-type creatures as well.

First Art Post!

By popular demand, the first piece of my work I post is Pokémon: Mewtwo Returns fanart. Done in layout class while being a bad student and not paying attention.

Also, the blog is pretty much finished and no longer looks like a default template with nothing interesting happening. More art to come!
