What I've been up to this past week and a 1/2

Did some thumbnails for an environment/background landscape assignment for a summer class. It's an Illustration course at CSUF using digital mediums. It's pretty fun and challenging so far; need to brush up in my composition knowledge fo' sho!

I ended up choosing the Japanese Temple "treehouse" on a bamboo pole among a bamboo forest. Has a little Red Panda sensei sweeping the stone pavement.

Corel Painter 12!!

Where was I this past weekend?

Disney Fireworks!!
4 day vacation out in Anaheim with my Mom and Dad. VERY MUCH NEEDED. Disneyland and then it was onto to California-Adventure the following day. Feet were SORE but we couldn't waste those free tickets!!

My Little Giraffe

Colored the sharpie sketch of the Lauren Faust-style Giraffe from my last post (

June SketchCrawl!!

YES, I'm a "bit" late on posting these but summer classes got into the way of scanning. These are some of the zoo sketches from visiting the LA Zoo with fellow CSUF undergrads and alumni. It was REALLY kool yet intimidating to hang out with the PROfessinials but everything went splendid....except I got a fierce sunburn on my shoulders, much like Megan's BUUuuurn (

I HAD to make a My Little Pony version of the giraffes...what!?! That show has a zebra, why can't they have a GIRAFFE!?!
These guys were just to cool to not be colored!! Colored also for my mother, a very avid bird-lover.

Also sketched peoples for practice also....I call this piece "Superhero Cape Tung stalk-sketching Girls".
Just kidding; I just arrange the sketches in this order  :P

Superhero Tung can be seen at:

My 4th of July Experience

Had a pretty good 4th of July last night. Hung out at the boyfriend's house feasting upon grilled shrimp and chicken, cranberry vodka, and fruit salad. And watching fireworks explode everywhere in the sky and in our driveway. My best friend came by and that was FANTABULOUS; I haven't seen the guy in ages due to his work schedule.

He decided to tamper with our Piccolo Pete's by hammering in both ends of the powder tube with a rock and sticking it back on it's stand. Wonderful events occured.
