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.

Sketches Update #3

So the first two are from a session at Dr. Sketchys. It's a cool little life drawing group that has burlesque models posing on fun stages. It's $8, but still fun . The last is a little comic a friend of mine Jimmy Malone drew after I drew in one of my teacher's sketchbooks and made him freak a little. Both guys are super cool and this comic makes me giggle/have a heart attack.

Sketches Update #2

Here is another quick illustration from the .... well I've been calling it the Miracle Sketchbook. Turns out that's not the name of it...OH WELL. Check it. The sentence was, "It knows all the yellow songs that the white blackbird sings in the rain."

Sketches Update #1

I've really been getting into brush pens lately. They make me make more decisive marks. They aren't always a success, but it makes me thing before working which is good for me. This model wore a toga with another sheet under it like she was pregnant. Mucho Gusto!

Style Dolls chickapata-chickapata-chickapata-ta-ta

More Dolls. I felt like Dr. Nimbus needed to have some fun so I let him pick his own clothes. What a little scamp. Unfortunately, I saved the picture as a screen cap and forgot to get the name of the designer.

If you were a fan of the cartoon Doug, then you will get my post title.

Silk Final

Here is my final for Silk. I forced myself to paint and I'm pretty happy with the results. There are probably many ways I can cut time down on the process just by practice and such, but for now it's taking forever. Yay for pushing myself!

Mother's Day Wrapping Paper

This assignment is to design wrapping paper based on an event that we were assigned at random. I got mother's day. We were asked to make a mood board first to establish color and....mood. Here is my sketch!

Another Miracle Sketch

Here is another Miracle Sketch. My sentence ( or part of one at least) was "into redbreast." I said screw it and took the silly route.

Lords and Ladies 150 Years Later

My Lords and Ladies piece with color. My first piece done in gouache. And because of the price, it will be my last :)
