I really want to become an amazing digital painter. Great is not good enough. Here is my first digital sketch in quite some time. I am going to be better about posting more frequently. 2014 resolution? Maybe.
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. ^_^()]
The original image was made using colored pencil for sketch lines and faber castell artist pens in brown. Second image was rendered in Adobe Illustrator using live trace. I posted it because I liked the way it looks. It does not do the original justice. I may have to work on this further.
I have been working on improving myself as an artist. The biggest of which is improving my attention to detail. I drew out the sketch of a bird that I had drawn before but with more attention to detail in an almost mechanical way. Please comment! I’d love to hear what everyone thinks.
I drew the image out in my sketch book then adjusted the colors in Adobe Illustrator to see how I might like to paint it. Please comment on which you like best. 🙂
If you have yet to see Disney’s Frozen, you are in for a treat. The movie is full of one-liners and loads of parodying from previous Disney movies. Don’t be fooled by the handsome young lad assisting the beautiful princess, this movie is all about family and the secondary characters are the highlight of the story.
Sven and Olaf are my personal favorites if you couldn’t tell. Once you see the movie, you will understand why.
