Back in the Sketch Books

I have been trying to use my sketch book a lot more this week, since it seems I have been neglecting it for the cintiqs as of recently.

This is Bloods, a husky that Scott rescues in South City and brings home as his own.

Some sketches I did in class earlier this week.

I tried out watercolor life studies on the quad. I started with some environment studies, then I moved on to some quick gestures and silhouettes.

Break from Finals

Some various pieces I've been working on this week. Trying to take a little break from 3D homework.

My entry for this week's Weeklies Challenge. This is my character, Shimahari Kiyo.

A little sketch of my character, Lemon Lime.

Tried to re-design this little guy, but the color scheme didn't come out as appealing as I would have hoped for.

A little discussion I had with my brother led to this one. Pigger's favorite food is Clam Chowder and he steals it from the local fish restaurant.

Some gestures I did before an Artist Talk this week.

4.18.14 - Zoo Class Session

We went to the Columbus Zoo for class this week! It was super nice out, so it was a lot of fun. We got to draw a wide variety of animals and weren't just limited to the ones inside. We focused more on longer drawings with more details in them, rather than quick gestures. It was a bit difficult, especially with the animals that moved around a lot. But it was a really fun exercise!

Total Drawings: 90

Week 12: Appeal Homework

For homework this week, I had to first find my 20 most appealing drawings from the semester, then I did 5 more new ones, spending about 5 minutes on each of them.

These are the 20 old drawings.

And these are the 5 new ones I did.

Revisiting Old Characters

I compiled a list together of a bunch of my characters, and have been choosing from it randomly in order to draw more of a variety from my main six characters. It's been a lot of fun, since it's giving me a chance to re-design some of them a bit.

Experimenting with some texture brushes. This is Pubby.

I haven't drawn this character in awhile: Aya.

I redrew another old character, applying textures to her as well. Her name's Araylee.

Redrew another old character: Dorby the Miner.

Animal Gestures!

Was playing around with some new things this week.

Some animal gestures I did during the Weeklies yesterday.

I tried doing a little pixel art piece. It's a lot harder than I would have thought it was, and it's very time consuming. This one isn't very good, but it's really the first one I've done really, aside from a few smaller things from years ago.
