Sorta kinda maybe more awake today...

Since I fell asleep yesterday trying to crank out more drawings and passed out in front of my computer....le oops!
How is everyone doing? not that I even know if there are people reading this blog..but there's a number of people that I haven't seen for a while now and here's hoping that I'll be able to see some of you guys during vacation time.
But ya...work flow's been doing ok and my classmates are super cool this year. It's been real nice to see how people's work are in their last year especially since I knew some of them waaayyy back from the "duh...whatsa gesture?" days of 28.
They've all been working hard, and it's obviously showing in their work.

Enough talk tho. Here's a snippet from a project that I've been wrestling with for the past few weeks.

The big top has rolled into town....

And I'm still flailing around trying to figure out where I'm running.
For the first BFA project we're told to follow a specific artist's style, and I chose Neil Campbell Ross as my person.
Who, by the way, is such a skilled painter that I'm actually embarassed about following his lead.
Here's hoping that I can come up with something worthy.
In the meantime, here's a messy little thumbnail I was playing around with. Maybe it'll lead to something, or maybe it won't.

Barefoot coffee roasters

Has this really awesome cafee brulee, which was blow-torched right in front of me once the order was ready. Haha! I'd recommened that if anyone's going there, and get the kouign amann since those are great too.

I was originally aiming for practicing around 1-2 hours and get on with homework, but this painting turned into a 3-4 hour behemoth which I rushed at the end. Oops. Plus it ended up looking oh so flat after all.....

First week of school

And I couldn't sleep right before the BFA class. Whee...in health news, my stomach's been doing the rumba all throughout the week in random times.
But it's nowhere near as serious as what happened during the break, so I just have to be really careful with my days.

...which still doesn't explain why I was up at 4 o'clock in the morning painting this wood owl figure my parents sent from home until it was time for me to go and line up for a locker.

Coming out of hiding...

To say that I'm not dead yet! har har har har....

For anyone who's heard of it, this summer has been a really long medical epic for me. But I'll be ok for the long term, even if my stamina's probably already cut in half thanks to the whole episode.
BFA's going to be twice as interesting now, I bet.
But I've been able to do work almost everyday while I'm recuperating, so although I didn't get a lot of practice in, I got a ton of digital stuff out thanks to some freelance stuff I got.

Here's one of the things I got to work with, out of a few dozen more of his brethens. So the Hugglay says wassup.

More random.

Today I painted a cake.

Fun...and random.

Today I painted mushrooms. Marinated mushrooms are tasty too....

Cramming in a lot of stuff now...

And finally I have some time to draw outside...

So close!

Yet so far.
It's only a few weeks until summer, and of course a heat wave has to come during the finals week. Ahhhhh........
I noticed recently that when I sit cross-legged my left leg's bone junction kinda gives out a little bit and it usually freaks me out when that happens. Gotta be more careful these days...
Here's an old vis-def piece that I was playing with just to take a break between work hours.

Here's a little teaser for my Maya model. Awesome! I'm just glad that I can get this done with in a couple of weeks..and then I can show the final result. Yee!

Bloggety blog blog..

Haven't had time to post stuff in a while, so here's a character design I've been working on.

Most of my time's been spent trying to crank up stuff every week and dealing with all kinds of randomness in 3d land. Apparently my file is possessed and it keeps trashing all my geos and throwing away textures..the fact that I made it this far in the classwork is beyond me. Ha haa...

The past few weeks after spring break really had been crazy. The workflow is leveling off more this time around, but I don't think I can handle another week like that again...
As the semester goes on and on, it is getting harder to motivate myself to work, and I know I drag my heels everytime I have to turn in something. But duh..same problem as everyone else anyway.
So here's a layout that I popped out during one of my ridiculous dashes to get a piece done. It's inspired by the 101 Dalmatians style, and if it even comes near the ballpark of that range then I'll be happy and go cry in a corner now.

If a treehouse falls in the middle of a forest, does that mean I get good reference?

One of my unused concept for the treehouse homework. .it has a circus theme thanks to Chrystal's suggestion (otherwise it'll just look like a circular semi-building, har har har..)
Oh. And Maya 8.5 is dumber than a breadstick. Just thought I'd throw it out there.

Wasting time...

Oh man....I have so much stuff to do. So what did I end up doing? painting random stuff in my sketchbook. Hee.

Friday, February 29, 2008

Yeah yeah yeah...

Photoshop practice..maybe I'll do better after a hundred of these...

More randomness!

This semester I was talking to some people about how bored I am of drawing cute stuff...so I drew this skeleton looking dude with huge KISS boots. Har har har...notice that he's playing the undead guitar since I'm into Guitar Hero III these days. Which also explains why the strums look like buttons..oops.

Random post...

Finally had some time to paint (what!)...and my roomate's gracious enough to let me dump my supplies in her room for a while.
Want to paint some more but I'm also falling asleep in front of my laptop..........................

And now for something completely off topic. A few semesters ago Daichi took a photo of me with his fancy Mac camera..with the distortion option turned on. Is my face really that square? har har har har...

Caramel Billy

Well, here's my character concept for 129A.

Had to come up with him pretty much at the last minute since we got assigned to it two days ago, but here he is. Someone mentioned that he looks like a Charlie Brown-type character, so his name is Caramel Billy. He's an apprentice mechanic slash pilot wannabe, who probably dreamed about flying horses when he was a kid.
