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 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. ^_^()]

Sketches/Concept Art

Photo on 2013-12-27 at 21.44

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.

Sketches/Concept Art

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.

Concept art


I haven’t been working on my paintings as of lately but painting is by far my favorite thing to do. I’m posting the concept art for a painting I will be working on in the upcoming weeks.

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. 🙂

Character sketch

I recently met a little boy at a friends house who was really inspiring. He was oh so cute and way too fashionable to ignored. These character sketched are loosely based on him and his adorable way with the ladies. He has no name but I am always up for suggestions.

Frozen fan art

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.
