Colored Sketches


I started taking some of my scanned sketches and adding color in Photoshop. 
These are sketches of some of my characters; Mr. Purple, Ms Periwinkle, and Mr, Red.

Canvas Progress: Green


So I got more paint on the canvas this week. I went with green. I'm thinking of going with a nature theme for this piece so far, but I'm not fully sure yet.

The Season of Paper Cranes

The beginning of Summer is always a slow start in artistic motivation/inspiration for me.
So this is what I've been working on for the past week or so to pass the time.
Paper Cranes.


I bought a big pad of colorful square papers that I'm going to turn into paper cranes. When I'm done making them all I plan to string them up together in some form of decoration for my new dorm room next semester.






Also some of my friends and I started a group where we try to improve our art skills durring the break.
This is what I have of our first project so far.
More about this will come later.

Hair Dye

A couple days ago I dyed my hair and found my favorite jacket. 
It was a pretty good day.

Canvas: Day 1

So today was the day I started to paint on the canvas that I mentioned in my earlier post. 
I went to Color Scheme Designer to decide on a color pallet to use. 
I thought that by making a color pallet for this project I would be less likely to crash into unplanned chaos.



I started with blue today.
I am still not fully sure what I want to paint on this concept-wise yet. I was thinking of something with flowers maybe.

Text Attack Complete

I was finally able to find a way to compile all of the scenes and the sound together without the video glitching.

How does it look?

So I drew chickens.

Animation 1 Final

Today our final animation was due in class.
Mine isn't finished but I can work on it in the future.
I had some trouble exporting the videos though. The separate scenes were able to export perfectly fine but when they were complied into one file and rendered the video started to skip some in-betweens.
But the compiled video has the sound in it
So here's all of them.
:D

Animation Final Update: Revision 2

I just finished the in-betweens for my final animation.
Now all that's left is revisions, clean-up, and hopefully color.
I also finished working on the backgrounds.

Final Oil Painting

This is the final product of my oil painting in PCT.
I am really happy with how this turned out. This was the first time that I have painted anything that had to be really shiny. 


What do you think?
