Mystique? Mystique!

Yay! Okay, so I was finally able to get started on my brand new Mystique painting today at work. Well, technically, I got started Saturday, but that was just the line drawing. Me and Allen decided to move the season along by doing some pics of Marvel peoples and such, so check out his page as well for some pretty awesome airbrush work. He's currently working on the Joker.

So, here's my work in progress:

This is the line drawing I made from the original picture. Yes, I did trace it was a projector, but hey, better to get it on proportionately than ugly. Plus, tracing it on is much faster. And.... I still had to draw in the details and stuff myself. I trace it on for correct composition

And here is all the black in for the image. Everything else added on later will be color and white. I really like how its going so far!

Yeah, my camera phone REALLY sucks, so, um sorry bout that.

Mystique and Wonder Woman

With my laptop being rebooted recently, I thought I had lost all of my airbrush files. Luckily, I had backed them up at an earlier time, so they were all there. Yay!

Haven't been personally airbrushing outside of work lately, but I'm thinking about painting a new Mystique in a different pose from the first.

Sorry this one's only in halvsies. Didn't have my camera at the time.

But basically, these are the major steps I take when I do paint "special" pictures. Meaning those other than t-shirts that say "Spring Break 08" in bright pink and yellow.

If and when I do paint Mystique, I'll be sure to take more incremental photos as well.

We're Livin in a 3-D world and Imma 3-D Kinda Girl

So today I finally finished my Viking Longboat for modeling. Here's the render shots as well as the source photos I used.

It's good, yea?


I am beat! 3-D modeling takes a lot out of you. I'm currently in Intermediate 3-D modeling and we're using Maya. It's a pretty sick program if you know how to use it, so I will be getting snapshot renders of my Viking Longboat soon. That and some Flash animation I'm working on as well for this quarter.

Collection of my stuff from awhile back, the newer stuff will be on soon

I made this a loong time ago with a VERY old version of Photoshop.

I used this goat as a logo image for a website we had to choose and redo for a web design project. It's inked and colored with prisma markers.

Now this one I had fun with. My buddy Adam wanted a logo for his production company "Dick in Dirt Productions. Basically, its watch you think it is. Except for what the pervs out there are thinking. I liked how it came out, and he took this sketch because I never found anytime to actually ink and draw it properly. But he's graduated now, and makin money.

I created this cartoon called "Wacky Woon World" in my Writing for Animation class and came up with these two characters. There's more, but I just didn't have scans of them. It's based off of a theme park and is still very rough, but I'd like to keep going with it. Anywhoo, this is the bumper car that comes to life and is basically partnered up with this girl, Nena. These are just inked scans.

These were images we made in my Computer Illustration class. The cigarette butt was later used in a comp image, and the guy on the right is actually the label for a pretend beer company. I scanned them in and colored them with Illustrator.

I like her, she's one of my favs! This is my cartoon version of Nefertiti, and was my project for Art History 1. She is inked and colored with prisma markers on the wonderful marker paper.

These three images were made in my Character and Object Design class, which I looved! Here you have Rosie, Squanto, and Medusa; three seperate projects for the class. Rosie is made for traditional 2-D animation, Squanto is made for a video game, and Medusa was like an experiment with prisma markers and colored pencils, but the challenge was to make a human/animal character that was convincing on both parts.

These two images were created for two of my friends who had started a film company under the name of "It's Like Rope Films." Well, they started off strong, but now its dead. Sad. I really enjoyed doing the artwork for them. I love the logos I made for them though. "Mailbox Junkie" was the name of their first short film. Both were made in Illustrator.

These three are miscellaney I do for fun.
