getting busier and busier by the minute...O_O

Pillar frame designs
Progress on the play has been pushing forward successfully-- everybody is doing a good job and I've so far helped build our first column, along with another set piece.

These designs here are just a sample of what is going to appear on the pillars in the final stages.

 unknown portrait sketch
This sketch here is an idea for a portrait that we may end up drawing painting in one of the indoor rooms/scenes of the play, like the Merchant's house, Venturewell's house, etc. 

I love how the shadows contrast with the lit part of the face.

 Amelia Enmity sketch
Of course, missed drawing Amelia, so I decided to draw this little sketch that I may put in my art portfolio. There are still some areas that are in need of improvement, but I think this is a good sketch.

 2-point linear perspective sketch
This first attempt at drawing 2-point linear perspective didn't go as good as I hoped. The shapes came out kinda disproportionate, the shading wasn't too good, and the lines felt too enforced. But...

I drew it again and the results got a little better. This time the lines aren't quite solid looking, and the shapes are more proportionate; although, the perspective on the two blocks may not be right. Here's hoping that I can keep on drawing.

Burnes Hogarth sketch
This is another face sketch that I drew from my Burnes Hogarth book-- I'm not really too proud of it, but a sketch is a sketch.

Well, that's it for now folks. I need to attend to some homework that i need to get done.

Good night.

quick comic strip update

Lindsay and Lydia comic

This is a quick comic strip that I drew for the Forum that's due this week. The idea is to cover about the new advisement system going on at the college and how it could catch many students by surprise if they don't take the necessary actions to sign up for courses.

Hopefully, this should make the paper.

See you later.

new stuff to show off

Alien Nation storyboards

Just some more storyboard fun with Glork. It's good that I'm encouraging more movement among my characters.

 sketchdump for cast members
This whole week I've been experimenting with sketching the cast members for the play that I've been working on, as a set designer. Eventually, it let to the results below ;)

 linear perspective practice
Here's some linear perspective practice that I've been working with from my drawing from observation book; this time I'm trying to take my professor's advice and draw a little less and focus more on the quality aspect of drawing a piece for the week. I may add some more finishing touches to this, just to take his advice.

Knight of the Burning Pestle Cast
Tada! This is the entire cast and crew (including myself) who are involved in the college play (with the exception of one person who is not entirely involved in the play whatsoever. This is actually set to appear in the playbill that we're developing before the premiere. 

Wish me luck as we design the physical look. :)

working hard as usual...

Ork, Glork N Spork storyboards

 Once again, I found myself storyboarding another set sequences with my alien trio. I'm surprised that I'm actually getting this project moving  bit faster than before, considering that I haven't worked on it since January (before I picked it back up last week of course). Since these are just storyboards, I don't have to worry too much about keeping them spot on location 100% of the time, but I will need to make sure they're in the same idealistic staging when I actually draw the layouts.

still life
I wasn't too thrilled about how this picture came out, but I have to admit that it's not too bad. You can tell the flower from before is missing but that's because my eyes were too lazy from keeping up.

cross contouring again
This time I wanted to experiment with a little more complicated sheet so I can place more emphasis on which area needs the most shading.

Going back to school today!

 So I'm going back to school tonight after a long and relaxing spring break. But before I leave, I thought it would be considerate to update my art blog before I go back again.

 Mind you that I will still be updating this blog regularly. ;)

 Burnes Hogarth female body sketch
 Yesterday, I decided to warmup with a resketch the female anatomical body. It's starting to look a lot more like what is featured in the book.

Rorschach Gizmo 2.0
This is just a resketch of an old drawing that I did several months back. I like the inking directing that I went with in the top half section of the drawing and the with the bottom, but I feel that there was more I could've done. Oh well. I could always draw it again.
Zombie sketch
Since I haven't drawn any zombies in a while, I decided to draw one of my own, in my own style. Isn't he cute? ;)

one more update before spring break ends...

Max Motep update sketch
This is another sketch of Max Motep the mummy. I'm thinking about changing his last name though, because it feels a bit too generic; I want something more unique in a last name, considering he's a mummy.

 Jack Kirby Avengers cover take 1
I am not 100% happy with this take of the Avengers comic cover that I own. I really think it should be better by fixing the ink work, as well as the anatomic structure of the characters. Also, if you notice closely, Ant-Man/Giant-Man and Wasp are missing. That's because I put more emphasis on Thor, Hulk, Iron Man and Loki, so I could focus on what I saw before my eyes without enough time to examine everything else.

 shading practice
This is another take from my drawing observation book, so I can practice with shading and shapes. I can tell that my skills are starting to improve by greater strides. :)

 Chuck Jones Looney Tunes sketchdump
Just another sketchdump from Chuck Jone's autobiography, 'Chuck Amuck'. I think I'm getting better at capturing the character's liveliness this time. :)

dumping some more art...

 Jesus sketch
 This is a sketch of Jesus Christ that I did for a friend. I'm not too happy with the way it came out, but it's not bad. I think my friend deserves a better Jesus sketch.

Alien Nation storyboards

I'm finally getting more storyboards done for my Alien Nation promo that I've been working on. Already, my aliens are possessing the necessary acting skills to get through their careers. XD

I got your back!
 Just a BH drawing of some guy's back. It's nice to know that I'm getting a better hang on a person's human body better.

Obama sketch
 This is a sketch of Obama that I drew to practice with the human head. Doesn't he look happy? ;)

 photo sketch

This is a crappy sketch of what I drew for my Studio Drawing 2 class. I feel like it should be redrawn for my class because I know I can do better.

pear sketch again
I decided to redraw my pears again because I wanted to experiment with distortion, shading and better capturing of my environment around what I'm drawing. You see, the background of the pear photo had shades of grayish white. Hopefully this is a much better improvement.

That's just it for now folks. Good night!

Diving into spring break!

 pear drawings
 This is a pair of pears that I drew based off my Art Professor's website. Nice to know that my shading is getting better, but I think I may redraw this.

shapes practice
Again, I decided to redraw the shapes sketch so I can work on the details of each shape, based off the photo.

Burnes Hogarth arm
 Nothing much to say about this; this was just for practice.

Rejected Mad Love Cover
 As seen in the Bruce Timm edition of Modern Masters, this was one of the rejected covers for Mad Love and other stories. I felt compelled to draw this so I can take what I learned from my art class and apply it to this cover. I like how I got a good angle on Harley's figure-- though some things still need a bit work.

Haha! Gotta love the Joker's reaction XD

Mr Freeze sketch
Again, this image was also taken from Modern Master's interview with Bruce Timm.

Just looking from a glance, this piece almost looks perfect; but if you look closely in the Helmet area, you can tell one problematic error. I'm posting it here just to keep record of how I did.

But again, I like how I'm applying what I've learned from my art class and putting it into good use. It shows I'm really getting there. :)

Amelia meets Dexter
Hah! Like most of you youngsters growing up, I excessively watched Dexter's Lab. It was one of my favorite cartoons of all time. Here, he's encountering one of my own characters, Amelia Enmity and it seems that some old habits never die. ;)

However, I think Amelia could be better. Something about her legs don't seem to work. It's like, they're there, but they're not properly drawn in her skirt area.
Ork, Glork N Spork storyboards

Now that I have spring break, I can finally resume my storyboard work for my Alien Nation promo I intend to put together. I think this time, the trio are really starting to pop out. I mean look at the shadowing on the characters, it seems like they're really coming alive.

That's all for now folks. Until next time, stay sharp. ;)
