ew, soda

"Billboard ad". Stayed up till 5 am working on this, but only because I finally got an idea for it. There are a few problems, I'll probably fix and repost.

sketchy sketch

Just some recent sketches/doodles for me.

Concept art - Game design project

Not 100% complete, since I still want to add words/images to the newspapers and posters, as well as a few other changes after critique today I'm sure, but I am pleased with how this came out. Well, to a point. We were not allowed to use digital media for the final piece, and our choices were ink or gouache. I've never used gouache before, and after this lovely first time, I don't know that I like it much. I prefer working digitally anyway, it's much easier when you have control over everything to get a piece looking like what it is in your head.

Scanned in in two pieces (even with the god-scanner, it was hard, piece is something like 15x18 inches or so) and touched up in photoshop a bit to push the values - the scan really nommed on them and the black was never dark enough for me.

Here are some of the pictures I've done for concept art class and some from digital drawing. Not happy with all of them, wish I could put a few more hours of work in, but alas.

the original file size of these two is pretty big, and they look better that way. We had to design our ideal studio/gallery space, and it was a project I was burnt out on and loathing far before the final pieces.

This was a quick piece I did to the prompt "pick a fairytale and change the ending". Stuff about the original drawing bothers me, but i'm not too unhappy with.
REALLY quick piece I did for a tutorial of how to color/draw digitally. I made up a story about it while doing it but have now forgotten it.

Part one of a cover for a dvd portfolio design for digital art.

Part two! Even though the top one was done based on a dream when I first moved into the dorms and the second one is my bed at the moment. oh well!

Next time: sketches and doodles and process work. Cheers.
