Homework homework homework

Might not have time to update this week or the next. Last weeks of school are always hell. Ttyl~

Color grids are hell.

... And I apparently have to do another one next semester. In a different medium. asdf.

I was sick this week, so there's less work than there would have been if I hadn't been sick.

Fabric is apparently not white enough. And the background should be darker. I fail at contrast with graphite. Sighs. I have to fix it some and take it to class.

WIP 2012-04-19
This is the color grid I was talking about. It still needs a lot of fixing. Ahhhh tedioussss.

Long poses again this week. I am not good with them. Short attention span. I did two versions of one pose instead of just fleshing out one as I should have. It didn't help that I had decided not to wear contacts since I was still a bit sick.
Drew this since I couldn't really see the model. Attempt at drawing figures from memory. This is one of the few times I've done this on white paper instead of lined paper.

This was for work. I'm not entirely happy with it. But at my current level, it's not going to get any better.

I ended up not adding as much as I had planned to. I think this is good enough for its purpose as a "No Shoes" sign.

That's it for this week. Now I need to get my mind into working mode for tomorrow. DX

This is so late...

I've been feeling a bit stressed lately. Took a day off school to rest. I think I'm sick, too. Maybe that's why I just couldn't wake up...

Also. AHHHH I SUBMITTED MY PORTFOLIO. I feel like there were things I could still fix, but it would require too much time and nitpicking. I have other obligations! DX

On to the point of these posts:

Fabric Study
Pie Story
Here are 2 character designs for the puppet show we're doing. The one on the left is the main character, Macaron Clafouti. The one on the right is Mayor Croissante.

Figure Drawing
2012-04-13. Friday the 13th. I didn't like that day. Trains hated on me.

And then I got bored because the model contorted himself into all sorts of impossible positions. So I drew these from imagination:
Women are so much more fun to draw. >_>

Non-School Work

[2012-04-12] 1-inch pendant charm prints
[2012-04-14] For work.
Facebook event for concert, here:

... And that's it.

Spring Break is Overrrr ;-;

I was simultaneously very busy and not very productive this Spring Break. I made no new prints for AX, didn't renew my passport, and left nearly all my homework for the last day. However, I hung out with friends that returned for the break, made progress on AX plans, and did manage to finish all my homework in the end.


OH AND MY PIE SCRIPT GOT CHOSEN TO BE PRODUCED. It got changed to a puppet show due to time constraints, so maybe you'll see cute puppet show props on my blog in the near future.

Ahem. Work these past 2 weeks:


... Actually I'm starting off with that painting midterm I couldn't post since the teacher collected it. We had to paint with acrylic, in color, a still life with a yellow egg, a white paper cube, and an eggplant on midtone cloth.

This is the project I stayed up all night for on the last day of my spring break. Haven't pulled a real all-nighter in a while. I didn't even start dozing off until 10am. It's a still life rendering from photograph, done in acrylic. The photograph should be somewhere in my older posts. (Here.) 

3D Animation

fin 2012-04-03
This is the midterm reel I am relatively proud of. I used the song mostly because its name is my English name. A friend tells me its really depressing, though. I think I'll change it. Also people keep asking me if I played the song myself, SO NEXT TIME I WILL! >D I can play this song. Or part of it at least. >_>

Things to fix: Moving pendulum is a bit too fast. Heavy ball (checkered) might also be a bit fast. I also want to use better textures for that scene and add a mirror behind the boy doing ballet. (This other guy in our class used mirrors! I'm going to learn how!) I am going to refrain for animating him doing an entire ballet sequence. XD

I also revised the walk I posted last time a bit, but I'm too lazy to upload it. You'll get to see it when I upload my animation final reel.

Figure Drawing

I did quite a few figures the week before break. The model had amazing poses. I forgot these 7 drawings the last time I posted.

It took a long time to get into drawing this week. I worked on long poses since the teacher said my portfolio needed more long poses.


Poster for our school's Percussion Ensemble. My work place is affiliated with them, so I often design posters for them. Next time I'll try to upload them sooner so people actually see the poster before the concert. >_>

Update to the "No Shoes" sign I'm making for work. My first WIP is on tumblr if not here. I'm almost done. Just need to add more clutter to fill up empty space. And the first 2 panels are missing the cushion that's on the shoe shelves/benches.

That's it for this week.

Tentative Portfolio

So my portfolio for the upcoming Portfolio Review currently looks like this:
