Quick robo sketch. Ash Thorp linked the making of Evangelion 3.0 on FB and it just got me really into the mech making mood. 
Here’s the link if you want to see it, but there are spoilers so don’t watch if you haven’t seen the movie.

Went to a long pose workshop at my school and did digital figure drawing it was really fun! I had to leave early cause I don’t have a car (or a license or a permit lol), but If I stayed I probably would have fleshed out her legs and hands a bit. This was roughly about an hour I think.

Art Center

Haven’t made like an official announcement anywhere yet, but I’m gonna be attending Art Center next fall! I reapplied this year and got into the Entertainment Design program. I was walking to the grocery store yesterday when the realization finally hit me. haha I still can’t believe I got in. Anyways thank you everybody for all the support! It’s been invaluable and I really do appreciate every note, fan mail, and or ask. 

P.S. And if anybody has any tips for ACCD drop me a msg. I need all the preparation I can get.

Saw this funny gifset of this cool bird and decided to do a design on it. Still working some of the kicks out, but I had some fun learning to render hair/fur. Any critiques would be greatly appreciated!

Digital Painting Assignment with a focus on using photos. I was originally just gonna do an environment but after a while I thought it was uninteresting and felt too “Last of Us” so I added these cool fantasy alien people. My idea for this was they are alien “archeologists” in that they study destroyed planets trying to figure out what caused their destruction and using that knowledge to help better their home world.

Selection of this week’s DigiAnyl Homework. The two at the top and middle right are form reference pictures and the others are master studies of Steve Huston’s work. His figure paintings are crazy good and everyone should check out his work to get some inspiration!
