Fan art

I recently had a commission asking me for something similar to ‘Where the Wild Things Are.’ I made my own characters with a similar art. I admire the art work in that book very much. I will be posting my own monsters in the coming weeks.

WIP Maquette

After the initial character design, we work on maquettes. I am making my bunny do a fighting pose. This is the work in progress. The sculpt is made of 1/8 and 1/6 aluminum wire, aluminum foil, and super sculpy clay. When I am done, I will paint it grey with acrylic paint and post the final product. STAY TUNED!

Throwback

‘Night Owl,’ sharpies and pastels

Throwback Thursday! Here is a photo of a small artboard I made using sharpies and pastels. I am absolutely in love with owls and just as in love with the painting of Starry Night by Van Gogh.

I recently went in for an internship with a graphic design company and very happy to say that….I think I got it. Cross your fingers and toes. Big things to come in 2014!

WIP Character Designs

When creating a character, the character goes through many phases. I’m posting the work in progress of both characters. The turtle’s name is going to Boulder and the rabbit’s name is Whiplash. Below are their transformations from their original design to what they are now.

Back to Work!

I’m not one to make new years resolutions. I’m more of a make-it-up-as-you-go kind of girl. Goal setting is hard enough to keep and if I really feel inspired, that is when all of the motivation starts flowing.

So, here are a few goals of mine for the next few months/year:

-Draw/post more (I bet you guys will like that)

-Post more animations/school work

I officially have 3 semesters left in my major and would love to have a following of my classwork/assignments. So if you like it, please let me know. I love to hear that what I do is not an ‘art major that [I] can’t take anywhere”. (Way to pop a little kids balloon, folks.)

To put it simply, I LOVE what I do. I love knowing other people do too. You guys inspire me.

 

ANNNNDDD Back to the show….

These are a few concept drawings of two characters I plan on modeling in clay then in our Maya 3D program. They will possibly be featured in a short animation I do in the future.

The spaceman is actually a character of his own. I have a little idea in my head that might be easier to implement in the amount of time we are given to complete our projects.

[PLEASE excuse my sheets. I was drawing in the middle of the night. ^_^()]

Happy new year!

I know its a little late but Happy New Year! I will be posting many images of my soon to come animations or animated characters. This year is promising to be a lot of fun and I hope your year promises to be the same. Many thanks to everyone who has been liking/commenting on my pics. It makes me more motivated to keep posting. So keep it up! 🙂 Many things soon to come.
