This week we spent the first hour or so of class using pixelovely to draw animals. The second half of class we spent at the Ohio State Fairgrounds. There were a bunch of alpacas for us to draw. It was fun, but I felt like after about the first 20-40 drawings, I was drawing the same thing over and over again. They were definitely interesting to draw, but they didn't move around enough to really get a good variety of poses.
For the past few weeks I have been working on a 3D sculpt in ZBrush of my friend, Jesse. The assignment was to create a bust of ourselves, but since I already did that, I was given permission to create one of someone else. All in all, I can see my sculpting skills improving with every project, so I'm excited to see what else comes!
This is the final illustration I composited in Photoshop after posing the model.
The turnaround sheet.
And I made a turntable video to show the grayscale and then painted version.
So it's really getting to the peak of stressful time. I have an assessment tomorrow and a whole lot of work to get done for classes this week. In the meantime, I got the chance to draw in my sketchbook a bit more. Looking through my old sketchbooks for reviews, I realized I kind of want to go back to my old sketchbook organization. Next time I'm going to try to buy a larger one than the small ones I've been working with.
More concepts for Cimc and Pubby.
And I decided to go ahead and make some concepts for re-designing Death.
It has been an extremely busy week! I've been swamped with midterms, prep for junior reviews, and turning in portfolios and applications for internships. So therefore, it's been extremely difficult to fit in time to work on my personal art. So this is all I've been able to do this week.
A little drawing of Duncan and Natalie's most up-to-date designs.
These were some drawings I did of myself to put into my portfolio. They're very similar to the drawings in the banner, but I improved on them a little bit for my portfolio.
And these are some animal gestures done at the Weeklies this time. I did not realize how destroyed my sketchbook was until this happened when I tried to scan them. I apologize for the terrible quality scans!
So this week we went to the Arnold Sports Festival for class. It was fairly crowded and a little hard to find places to sit. I went to see the fencing and gymnastics for the majority of the time. It's always a lot of fun to see extremely talented young kids.
This was a really quick 10-20 minute doodle I did. I saw this girl at church earlier today and I thought she'd be funny to draw. She was sitting there with a pouty serious face, crossing her arms, then she just proceeded to pick her nose. Kids are weird.
