History class sketches

Just some sketches I did when I got bored in the first day of Animation History class last Monday.

The professor, Larry Loc

He was describing our curriculum for the Fall semestetr and that we'd be watching all kinds of animation. Even an x-rated one from the 1970's that he says spawned the subculture of fuuurries....hence that pose there on the bottom. 

People around my seat

Trees and stuff

These are super late posting up. Instead of taking pictures of the campgrounds I went to last week with Ron, I wanted to try sketching the landscapes. Practice foreground, middle ground, and background teachings from Cliff's summer class.

Need more practice -_-....

There's Ron, our mat with tissues, and trees in the bg

Our tent there in the left corner, some redwoods, and the mountain range

This post contains Mush

These people will know who is who.....
YEAH, my good friends there are warning you of the INCOMING LOVEY-DOVEY stuff in the next image....

Updating at least something since I'll be busy with this personal project of mine...

This is just one of the many storyboard panels (and my favorite so far) that I'm making as an anniversary gift to my guy. EVERY year we've been together I always make an art piece for him. Once I stick every finished panels into Adobe Premiere, the full project will be uploaded here sooon. So more mushy-ness on the way.

August 18th is gonna be amazing.

back to cute

Up, up and MEOW AWAY!!
Now THIS was a fun and relaxing piece to do. This was one of my idea sketches for that Superhero kid assignment I keep mentioning. Lots of exploring with silhouette and working with color shapes. A BIG thanks to James and Megan for helping me out with making a graphic/non-line drawing like this one  :)

crackle crackle

 And you guys thought that I just drew cute stuff.

These next few were some of my other drawn ideas for the final assignment in my advanced digital illustration summer course. The other option besides "Kid that pretends to be a super-hero" was "futuristic vampire hunter". 
I played around with it possibly be a fan tribute to Buffy time-traveling to slay vampires int he future, as seen in that thumbnail. Then while collaborating with my boyfriend we came up with some vampires of the future. He was the main idea person and I with the visuals, bringing up class levels in vampire packs, such as Breeders, ones that disguised and spied as humans, and the running Blind Viscious.

Here's a little thumbnail sequence of a Breeder attack and how a pack of running Blind Viscious smell out their prey.

The idea was kick-ass but in the end, my professor liked and approved my compositions with the Superhero kid. I guess I got caught up in the development of the Futuristic vampire world that I forgot to make a final pencil illustration. Derp.

Also big inspiration on the creepy-factor thanks to Jenna's awesome drawings where she doesn't even have to try hard to achieve beautiful creepyness:

Super-Boy and Bear Dog!!

Final assignment for my summer course of Advanced Digital Painting working with Corel Painter DONE!!

Went through a fairly new process of painting but nonetheless came out with a piece that I'm really proud of.

Pencil Sketch, brightened and colored in Photoshop

Transfer to Corel to set a warm color mood and quick value study

Glaze over some color with Digital Watercolor and establish an orange-and-blue tone complementary (LOVE complementaries  <3)

Working with opaque mediums now...

And texture, details, and then DONE!!
