Zoo Trip!

This weekend, I went to the zoo with my friends in the freezing cold! It was still a lot of fun, nevertheless.

The sketches I did of the animals while I was there.

Gestures done at the zoo and while at the Animation Student Collective.

Process Experiment

Other than my Drawing for Entertainment Design class, I have been working with drawing figures and sketching my characters for fun.

A little experiment I did to change up my process. I started with the sketch, then went straight to color and finished it with lineart. It was a bit more challenging, but works!

Some sketches I did to take a break from homework.

So this week we did one-class full body sessions in Portrait Drawing. This was the first one and I had some troubles with proportions.

The second one also had some proportion issues towards the legs, but I liked how the face was turning out.

Enemy Encounter: Environments

So I realized it's time I finally tried to face my greatest fear: environments. I have struggled with environments more than any other aspect of drawing. To be honest, it is something I do not know what to do in order to improve. So what is the battle plan? To just do them over and over again until I CAN do them successfully. These were some that I did last weekend.

I started out just doing some value studies to try and create "dream sketches."

Animation III Final Progress!

So this week I worked on trying to finish my roughs for Animation III and put them all together in After Effects so that I could see it all together.

And I also did my backgrounds for the short as seen below.

Sketching Stuff

A few things I did in between homework. I need to spend some time on my own stuff still, even while I'm stressing out over finals, right?

Some sketches I did of my characters as a break from homework.

Little doodles I did while I wasn't feeling so great. Finals have been getting to me.

Some quick gestures I did in charcoal.

Character Finalizing!

So I've been working mostly with characters for my Drawing for Entertainment Design class recently. I've been trying to finalize my character designs so I can go ahead and create more finalized art of them.

I did a character line-up!

Armon Model Sheet

Lilith Model Sheet
Sibyl Model Sheet

Osmin Model Sheet

Layla Model Sheet


Character sketches of Armon.

 Character sketches of Osmin.

 Character sketches of Layla.

Scene 10 Storyboards 
(I added in the beat boards I had done as well)
I have been doing some extremely rough storyboards throughout the semester to show actors that act out our scenes. This is my most recent one.

I finally tried out using watercolors for one of the first times on my own. Honestly it's not as terrible as I remember it being. I still have a lot of practice to do, but this was pretty fun for a first little test.

This was my first one I tried out. I used portrait reference and environment reference.

Some figures and doodles I tried out while experimenting with watercolors.

Some quick little marker sketches I did of some of my characters.
