Check this out, Claire pointed this out for me the other day. Who does that look like? Oh yeah its totally me! By no means did I have any part of creating this model. It is the main character from the upcoming movie called Planet 51. Look it up. I smell a new avatar coming.

Muscles, I draws dem

Here are two Stereotypical characters for my character design class. Hero and Heroine, simple enough. I will shade these guys up and probably eventually paint them, we'll see when that happens. Done with Prismacolor pencils and ink. Enjoy.




This is the midterm for Joe Olson's Drawing for animation class. We had to take our toy assignment and turn it into something better. The theme was Steampunk + Vegetables. This is what I came up with. This is done with Prismacolor pencils, inks, marker and my new favorite thanks to Tyson Murphy...WATERCOLORS! :)

I also cheated with photoshop for this final look.

Happy Halloween

My wife, daughter and I decided to do a little pumpkin carving on sunday night and I wanted to do something different this year. So instead of carving one in the old fashion way, I decided to get a little crazy. Check it out.

Yeah, I consider this an epic fail but I had a lot of fun learning how pumpkin reacts to carving. I see why more people don't do this. It is supposed to be the floating zombie spaceman head from a couple posts back. It was a fun learning experience, but now back to the real work. Enjoy.

I found a bunch of stuff that I never posted in my old sketchbook. This stuff reaches back about months. Wow, I need to stay on top of things more. Enjoy!

Audrey 2 and a little life drawing

This is my second attempt at Audrey Hepburn. I stretched it a little bit more and I am alot more satisfied with this one. This took me forever because no matter how much I stretched her features, I still had to make sure she stayed semi-pretty. Whew. Anyway I thought i would throw on one of my figure sketches from work also. Enjoy!

This is a quick Character Design assignment that I completed tonight. A caricature of a popular celebrity. I chose Audrey Hepburn because that lady had style. She was gorgeous and always had the sweetest hair. But nothing beats the lashes. My wife informs me that she had individual eyelash separator people that actually separated every one of her eyelashes from the others with a needle to give them the full look. Hey, it worked. That is the first thing i think of when Audrey Hepburn comes to mind. I regret not drawing her long ol' cigarette holder, but alas this is life. Enjoy

Oh yeah

This is a piece that I did for Joe olson's class to the theme of "Bunny herders of the endless steppe". What you see is what you get on this one. The bunnies are really big on that there endless steppe. Nuff said. Enjoy!

Sneak Preview

These wont be turned in till tomorrow, so if you are a faithful follower you will get to see them today! These are an assignment that we have spent 3 weeks on. The first week we drew a silhouette of 4 themes, Spaceman, Butler, Female construction worker and Witch. These you will see in the top left corner. The next week we added whiteout to all of them to give them some interesting internal shapes and chose our favorites. These you will see in the bottom left. The final week, we were to render out a character according to those shapes and the big ones on the right are what I came up with. Let me know what you think. Enjoy!

Toy design round 2

I am taking Joe Olson's drawing for animation class this semester. It rocks my socks and I recommend it to everyone who has the chance to take it. This is a toy design after the style of the "Urban Vinyl" genre. Look it up, they're pretty sweet. Anyway if you remember my little gangster dude I drew back a million years ago, that was my first attempt at this assignment. This is my newest attempt, and I'm pretty proud of it. The theme was "devonian or precambrian lifeform". Yeah it looks like the fish has splattered on the ground, but as Brandon, one of my buddies pointed out, it looks like he was laying on the ground with his mouth down and he sneezed with a big "pthbtbtbtbtbt" sound. Yeah I like that better too. Enjoy
