Last Day of School

Just as I promised, the last update of the month before school lets out. All I gotta say is...

I Want That Bear!
This bear was a result of many sketch studies composed from my Walter Foster animation study booklet that I bought last year. I haven't been using it as often as I should, but I have started using it more frequently these past two days.

 Burnes Hogarth female studies

Once again, these two female body sketches were taken from my Burnes Hogarth book. I'm trying to pay attention more to details, so this bottom one, I decided to draw again. My Art teacher said I have a habit of drawing it a lot.

 Let's Face it!
I also have a tendency to daw this face as well. This time, I think I'm more attentive to the actual shape of the skull-- top and back.

 portrait studies
This is just a portrait study of me just to get in the habit of drawing more portraits. My Art teacher thinks that I really need to improve upon that area because he says that they're in the Freshmen High School area right now. I agree with him-- I just wish it were easier to manage.

Darkwing Duck panel study
Ah yes. I decided to revisit my Darkwing Duck fan days and recreate this panel from the very first issue when Boom Studios was distributing them. It certainly looks miles ahead from last year's attempt, which I decided not to post.

All I have to do now is take my last final and then I'm home free! See you soon. ;)

Apologies for lack in updates...

This whole month has been extremely busy for me. I am still drawing like I should, and hopefully I should have my art blog update shortly before tuesday, May 1st-- my last Final.

See you soon.

Knight of the Burning Pestle

Hey guys! Since it's been a week since I took these photos, I figured now was the time to showcase what I did for the Knight of the Burning Pestle play.

brick window
This was apart of one of the exterior buildings that we designed-- I sketched out some ideas, and the team went with what I showed them.

 Me and my shield
Probably one of my major props. This shield was wielded by Rafe, portrayed by my friend Ben Wallin.  Since it had to be medieval style, I thought a nice black and white pattern would work fine with it. I intended on fixing some areas that aren't noticeable from this eye view, but Pinkham said it was fine. Even so, a job well done.

Forest frames 


I drew the initial layouts for these three forest frames, while the other painters painted them. The last one down actually had a crack in the frame, but I managed to disguise it so subtlely. :)

 brick wall frames

Once again, these three frames were initally designed by me, with the cast members designing the layouts, and painted them (I actually did some paint with this one).

ending the year soon...

Psycho Grover
I was a big fan of the Grover/Mr Johnson sketches when they aired regularly on Sesame Street. After watching the 'Speedy Pizza' bit, I realized why Grover followed Mr Johnson around-- to give him his comeuppance. ;)

eyes practice 
These are just some eyes I drew from my Burnes Hogarth book, so I can study how they work better. Being that I'm finishing up my Studio Drawing 2 class, my teacher has wanted me to focus on eyes and how they aline. 

 Daffy Duck studies
These were from last week when I was watching the Daffy Duck cartoon 'The Great Piggy Bank Robbery'. This one has to be one of my 2nd favorite Bob Clampett-directed Looney Tunes cartoon of all time, with Falling Hare being the first.

 Bugs Bunny studios
Since I mentioned Falling Hare, I decided to study how Bugs' poses were aligned in certain sequences of the cartoon. This was when he was trying to get out of the plane by breaking down the door.

linear perspective on my name
Here's my name ala Linear Perspective style. This was an assignment from class in order to execute linear perspective correctly. I have other examples, but I felt they're too embarassing to show considering this is better.

That's all for now folks. Will update you again soon.

nothing new...

Except this...
Yeah, I haven't been updating my blog lately. Still, I thought it should be important to at least show you that I'm still drawing. I've drawn quite a bit this week, but not enough as usual on account of the play. Anyway, this is a design for my home page that I started debugging for my Final project. More details on that later.

As you can see, most of my characters make an appearance while I think them up. On the far right is a new dude that I've had in my mind for about 2 years. More details on him to come.

Right now, I'm too tired. I need to get some sleep. Good night folks.

sketching away

real life comparison sketch

So yeah. It seems as though this sketch wasn't the best interpretation of this warehouse found at my college. Oh well, at list I'm trying to get the perspective down.

 linear perspective sketch
Right now, I can't seem to look back at what kind of perspective this sketch required (though it could very well be a combination of both 1 and 2 point perspective), but I think it still looks good for practice.

My Room 
...or at least a sketch of it. Seriously, I think there's more to it that I could've fixed about it. I mean, it's not bad at all, but my roommate's desk looks so disproportionate adjacent to how it really is in real life. Oh well-- practice makes perfect.

facial body parts sketchdump
While I was in class yesterday, my Professor suggested that I work on the eyes and nose a bit so I can get those features nailed down while I'm drawing my tennis player drawing.

 cartoony sketchdump
Thursday night, I got bored so I decided to do a sketchdump featuring some classic cartoon characters. I must say, they look very dignified. ;)

Glen Keane sketchdump
Of course, if you folks didn't know this by now, Glen Keane has resigned from Disney earlier last week. Since it's brought such an uproar, I decided to do a sketch of Beast and Ratigan to calm the storm XD.

 Bob Clampett Tweety Bird
I must say, Bob Clampett isn't really one of my biggest idols, but I do admire his animation direction. So out of boredom Saturday night, I decided to draw Tweety Bird.

Tim Burton sketchdump
Ah yes, Tim Burton-- one of the greatest filmmakers of all time. You know, I never had the time to really draw more of his material, but I really want to. I should rewatch all of his movies so I can start copying his artistic direction. It's so unique and creative.

Ren's Happy Helmet
Gotta love Ren and Stimpy. I've always wanted to draw Ren's happy transformation sequence from the episode 'Stimpy's Invention.' It has to be one of the best sequences ever in Ren and Stimpy. I wish John Kricfalusi would revisit his glory days and do more stories like this.

Well, that's all folks. I've got some work to do. See yah!
