He can become irritated with foolishness very easily and does not hesitate to take action against those who annoy him. He is very obedient to Altair and the other higher-ups of Outlaw Bar, and will listen to them no matter what.

 "RoaR CrY Concepts"

Whenever he believes he is becoming too good of friends with someone, he will murder them, but his latest friend, Punchy, escaped him. RoaR's goal has been to pursue Punchy and kill him to keep up his tradition. RoaR is very strict on obeying orders, and will urge everyone not to disobey his orders. RoaR has died many times, but every time he dies, he is somehow brought back to life.

Mikey became friends with Gojo when he first moved to North Harbor, but when reuniting with him later, Gojo was very cold to him, which broke his heart. Mikey always tries to befriend Gojo and is completely obsessed with him, even though Gojo always beats him up. In Mikey's free time, he either cries or uses Big Magic.

After he was killed, Refinto was tricked into signing a contract with Neen saying that he will work for him and follow his orders no matter what. Refinto has turned into a slave of Neen, and follows his every command.

"Corana Concepts"

 "Lupita Burger Concepts"
Lupita is the strongest creature in Biggert City, and second in charge of The Big Kids. He is close friends with Chiz, therefore one of the most intimidating creatures of Biggert City. After he was trained by his new teacher, Lupita became much more mature and much stronger.

 Kicky is a very outgoing boy who loves to imitate others. His interests all revolve around his hero, Scott. Before he knew Scott, Kicky copied off of his brother Punchy's personality. Kicky does not really have much of his own opinion, and often relies on others to decide for him. Kicky is very mean to people that he does not like and usually ends up talking really loudly when he is upset.

"Muto Psy Concepts"

Mu is one of the nicest creatures from Biggert City. D.Mu is his brother who used to be a very nice creature, but he later became a very cruel creature.

"Yaguzi Anger Sketch"
This was a quick sketch I did of my character, Yaguzi. It was just a scene that popped into my head when I was listening to music a couple of days ago.

"First Charcoal"
This was my first time rendering a model using charcoal. We had two class days to work on this.

"Natural Light Tower"
This is a tower of objects I painted using natural lighting. The light source is from the desk lamp that sits in the still life. This might still be a preliminary painting, but this is as far as I got with it so far. I had some difficulties with getting used to acrylics again after using oils for my most recent painting.

He is easily attracted to girls, and will try to flirt with them. Johnny gets excited easily and loves being hyperactive, especially with his friends.

"Aloysus the Newspaper Project"
This is a project that I did for Design class using rolled up newspapers. It had to be about as tall as me, but it ended up collapsing a little. There were many different interpretations about what it looks like, but I kind of liked the idea that it has a bunch of little legs. After I turned in my project, I brought it back to the lobby and named it Aloysus. He is a new member of our group.

Late Weekly Update

I've been keeping myself pretty busy lately, so my weekly update is a little later than usual.

 "Night of Isolation"
I got really inspired to do a digital painting after the demo/tutorial that Wes Talbott did for us at Animation Club. It was amazing and taught me a bunch of new tips. I really feel like using a square brush makes things a lot easier and it turns out better, so I'm glad he told us about that. This is my OC, Arianna Digby. I slightly re-designed her clothes, but only a bit. This is a bit of a different depiction of her though. Even though Arianna's the left out one that is always too nervous to talk to anyone, I feel like it's more of a comedy aspect. Since I've been kind of down recently, I decided to just make this piece kind of reflect that. But it's funny, because after I made this piece, all of the sadness just went away and it made me feel happier.

 "Shiny Realism"
This was a project in painting where we had to paint two of the same painting; one pointillism and the other realism. I painted this like a week ago in my painting class. I ended up only painting this in one day though since I spent so much time on the pointillism one, but I feel like this one still came out better.

 "Shiny Pointillism"
This was a project in painting where we had to paint two of the same painting; one pointillism and the other realism. Personally, I feel like my pointillism piece didn't come out all that great, but I ended up spending the most time on this one.

"Arm Muscles and Bones"
While referencing a model, we drew her arm three times (although I drew it four times since I messed up on the third one). I drew the surface, bones, and muscles. I accidentally drew the bottom muscles on the third one, so I started to draw a fourth one with the right muscles being shown.

"Bone Legs"
We had to draw legs of all sides and label all of the bones.

"Bone Arms"
We had to draw arms of all sides and label all of the bones.

"Gesture Drawings 05"
Just some more quick gesture drawings.

"Going Up?"
This was my first piece using Painter Tool Sai. I just wanted to experiment and see how I liked using it, but my pen pressure stopped working mid-way so I didn't exactly get a good chance to judge it. From what I saw though, I was a bit confused and preferred Photoshop over Sai.

"Gestures Practice"
Just some more gesture practice that I did on my own time.

 "Gestures, Hands, and Cat Practice"
This was just some gesture practice that I did a bit ago. I was trying to practice my drawing skills, and experimenting holding my pencil differently.

"Loyal Follower"
This is just a quick digital sketch that I did over the weekend. I was going to make it into a full digital painting, but I didn't like how it was coming out so I just stopped. But this is Heri Cots Vert, kind of a slight re-design of him.

"Transparency Space"
This is just an exercise that I did for my painting class.

"Glenda Concept"
Glenda is a very old woman who owns a bath house. She goes to bed very early and if waken up, she can become quite cranky. Glenda does not tolerate any goofing around and is very strict. She is often found yelling at children and becomes annoyed very easily. It is quite rare that she is friendly or welcoming to guests of her bathhouse.

"Uther Animal Concept"
Uther Animal is very outgoing and enjoys watching spoilers. He is a very curious young raccoon who is always aware of his surroundings. He likes to sing and is the leader of his band, The Sp00kz. Uther Animal likes shouting out and carries a gun with no bullets around with him, "breathing clearly" with it.

 "Z Concept"
Z is one of the most powerful creatures in all of The Worlds. He The Guy Who Talks Like This' master and has great power over him. If something does not go the way that Z has planned, he "fixes" it and destroys anything in his path. He has a grudge against The Nays and will do just about anything to destroy them all. Z always has a very calm front and is very confident in his powerful abilities.

"Yana Concept"
This is one of the original characters, Yana. She is one of the antagonists, but I don't have all that much information about her yet.

"Jim Pigger Refs"
Pigger is very overprotective of the orphans and will always be guarding them and deciding what they can and cannot view. He acts as a very strong parent figure to the orphans and always knows their whereabouts. He used to be a very silly and carefree young man, but over the years he has come to be very strict and stern, but still very caring and gentle towards the orphans.

Weekly Updates

I decided that I'm gonna start updating weekly instead of daily just because it'll be a bit more manageable now.
