fanimations

Two fun gifs. I love rough animation so, so much.

summer fun times

Let's face it, I draw a lot of fanart. A lot of them are of robots. I mostly post these at my casual tumblr but I thought it'd be good to compile my favourites from the summer. You know, for progress' sake.

I feel like I've used this summer for mecha art and nothing but. I don't regret it. (Okay, maybe a little.)

Some originals:




 And some fanart:



 It was a good, fun summer.

Layout Dump

A couple things from layout (both first and second semester).

Layout Portfolio (first semester):

Textures:

Scale Relationship:

And that's about it for now. I love layout class, we get to stretch our imaginations and try new things without the extra worry. Onward to the rest of semester two!

Ficto-Planet

Was debating whether to post this or not. Although I don't like the paintings, I did enjoy the process. From thumbnails to tonals to colours to paintings!

Still Life Paintings

Still life paintings for Florian. Learned a lot about glass and facing-deadly-consequences-if-you-don't-paint-with-constant-lighting. Next time I'll close the curtains and put on a lamp instead of using the sun. (I should have thought of it earlier.) 

On the plus side, I found an old wine glass in the cupboards. What a pretty little thing!

Layout Pans

Considering this was done in the span of a (hurried) day, I'm not satisfied with the results. That being said, I had quite a bit of fun with the pan + designing the characters. On the left we have a frumpy, grumpy pipe-man who is overprotective of his pipe-filled train station. On the right we have a wide-eyed girl who steals pipes from the closed station to sell and gain prrrrrofit. Copper makes a pretty penny!



Looking back at the beginning of the semester, I remember being too afraid to lift a pencil in layout class. It's a silly fear that I still have - that whatever I create will be gaudy and filled with mistakes. But mistakes are great, mistakes are things that I can learn from. With every failure, I'll fail better and more spectacularly and I'll learn even more. All I have to do is keep drawing and scrutinizing, and drawing some more. Wahoo!

Skeleton Drawings

It's crunch time! (If this is first year crunch time, I worry to think what fourth year crunch time will be.) Bone drawings for Thurman:











I learned a confoundingly large amount from this project. I didn't expect bones to be so helpful in figure drawing  - I knew they'd be helpful, but I didn't expect them to be help that much. I was pleasantly surprised.

Also I learned to never leave printing to the last minute - yikes, that's a mistake I'll never make again. Though on a positive note, I learned that the school's Grenville printshop does fantastic colour prints on card paper. Not so much on laser paper, but the card colours make me excited and giddy.
