Mother Thumbs

Hey so here is the thumbnails for the character of Roger's mother. She's very non corporeal and floats through the walls of the Tower once it becomes the Abyss as Roger's guide.

Roger's Other and Interior Tower Fight

So above is an interior of the tower's ring structure and Roger is fighting an Other enemy with the help of the Protector type NPC. And Below is the thumbs and "final" of the main antagonist: Roger's Other. After a few critiques I have a lot more work to do on him, but the bulk of his character is complete.

Approaching the Tower of Ascension

Roger starts off outside of the first area of the game where he learns basic tutorial lessons. All the trees inside his mind are developed thoughts and ideas of his personality. Tower details to come (I think) :)

Little Things

These are the CPU good guys that help Roger in battle after he rescues them from darkness. The Protector type, the Illusionist type, and the Vanguard type (almost done). They all represent something good in Roger's thoughts. Since he absorbs all his Little Things at the end of each battle I thought it might be cool to have a menu section that lets you look at what each and every one embodies like, "I like the smell of sunflowers." The Protectors arms are going to get bigger and the Illusionist is going to have a unicycle-like wheel and the Illusionist's gloves are going to change a bit. TWEAKING FOREVVEERRRR.....first environment coming soon.

Huey the Chameleon Character Design

This is Sara from "Huey the Chameleon" a small story I'm writing for a 2 minute animation in my Animation Pre-Production class. She gets Huey as a present and is astonished that every time he changes colors he does a different dance! :D

Roger Color Thumbs and Value Comps

This was my favorite thumbnail that I pushed further. I think his pose and shape are the most effective and indicative of a guy who has a lot on his mind, but is willing to do what he has to. I'm still not 100% on the hat, but it's an easy fix if I decide to change it. The cape is made of paper and the censer smoke will change color throughout the game.

So I will explain the story in detail at a later date (I need to finish writing it), but the basic premise is a depressed guy goes inside of his own mind to battle his personal demons! Yaaay! Here are the thumbs for the main character Roger. He fights with a censer. I took a few pieces of art from some favorite games and paintings and studies the way they used curves vs straight lines as well as basic shapes. It was a super fun exercise. Another fun sketch time was taking one shape and drawing several things using the same shape. It forced me to really look for what is in the shape silhouette. Check it!

Digital Life Drawing =o

So here is my first attempt at life drawing from the tablet. I really wanted to try and paint it. I feel like for a first attempt there is a lot of success in this, but I definitely have a ways to go. The light kept shifting because it was sunset which messed with my colors a lot.

Star Trek 2

So we had to make a lifestyle illustration inspired by a movie that has yet to be released. I got Star Trek 2, ya know the second one of the new ones. They need to find a more efficient title making system. The designer I chose was Gareth Pugh's latest collection.

Garion Revamp

So I reworked Garion to fit with the other characters I've made in the more painterly style. Um fuck faces. I hate faces. My goal for the summer is to get bad ass with faces because I can't have anymore of this wonky does-it-have-a-mental-disorder face bullshit. But other than that, I'm happy with it.

Vice/Virtues Posters

So for this assignment we were given a vice with its corresponding virtue. We were then asked to make two posters based on them with the vice and virtue embodied by some entity. I got gluttony and temperance which I embodied in fire. I'm experimenting with different brushes in photoshop and this one is a mix between the chalk and oil pastel brushes.

Barak Thumbs

This is Barak. He is a berserker who accompanies the rest of the protagonist's party. He is super war like, but is also quite sensitive. He is also tormented by his prophecy that names him as The Great Bear. He does actually transform into a bear any time Garion is in trouble as an uncontrollable reaction. His whole bloodline is burdened with this curse.

The Seventh Dolls O' Style

I think I am just going to dress Nimbus in the goofiest clothes I can find from now on. Believe it or not, that outfit is actually for a man. Thom Browne's Fall 2011 RTW. Weirdo.

Dr. Nimbus Finds a Lazer Clam

Here is my 4th Dr. Nimbus Comic! It's 3am! My eyes are bleeding! :P

Vinyl Matryoshka

So for this assignment we had to have 3 faces and concentrate on hair, makeup and accessories to get across a theme that was given to us. I was given "Vinyl Matryoshka." A matryoshka is one of those Russian stacking dolls.

C'Nedra Thumbnails

This is C'Nedra from the same story I've been working on this semester. She is the wife of Garion and leads a giant army against the forces of evil. The prophecy calls her "The Queen of the World". She is timid but strong and wears a suit of gold armor to boost the moral of her troops.

Elderly Fat Wizard

We had a random character generator and mine read " Mysterious elderly wizard who has a huge appetite." We were asked to make this character in a different style than the other things we have been working on.

Merchant of Marvels Cover

I also had to design the cover of one of the sketchbooks. We had to incorporate the number of the book we received along with the title and author.
