Dante painting progression Day 2

Going to see Avatar this evening, so limited amount of time to work on this...but I fixed some major problems with his face and hand, and tightened up some of the other things...think the guitar looks more like a guitar now ;)

Dante Progression, Day 1

I'm working on a digital painting of Dante from my Creative Process final project. Just for the heck of it, I'm going to chronicle it step-by-step here as well ;) Today I created 10 very quick thumbnail sketches, chose the one I wanted to play with, and started roughing in values. Tomorrow I need to spend some time finding some references for the face, and then further tighten things down.

2D Drawing class project #2

Here is the final image for my 2nd project in my drawing class...had to use non-traditional media, so I drew with a Q-tip using India Ink, bleach and blonde hair dye on blue felt.

Beatrice Study

Here's the 3rd study for Creative Process, this one is Beatrice, dressed in a holographic Warhol painting.

3D studies for my Creative Process Character Design

Here are two quick studies I did for my 33rd Century revision of Virgil and Dante from Dante's Divine Comedy. In my new version, it's based around rock music of the 20th century instead of classic poets, and it's set in a giant mega-city spire with 3 areas.

life drawing update

I've been drawing every day this week, but I haven't had time to scan and post stuff...here's a couple of things from life drawing today @ 221A.

Grind sketches

Did quite a bit today at the Grind, mostly gestures, but a couple of more finished looking things too (although nothing to a "finished" state!)

Sunday, November 22, 2009

Sunday night @ Grind

I skipped Life Drawing today, but I did go over to Grind and I drew for a bit.

Saturday Drawings

Sketches from the Sketch Crawl and Sketchgroup - I was a tad high on cold medicine, so I decided to go with gestures instead of finished drawings.

Saturday, November 21, 2009

Friday night sketching

Did a lot of "from memory" gesture drawings tonight, mostly in pen but a couple in pencil.

This week's "new medium" was charcoal powder - cool stuff :)

today's sketches

I was having a weird "vine" moment for some reason....

life drawing @ Emily Carr

Here are a few of the ones I didn't mind too much...didn't feel as good about tonight as I did about yesterday, but that may be in my head, I can never tell.

Drawing class project prototype

My drawing class' first assignment is to create a portrait using parts based on at least 15 different artists...so before I draw it out, I loaded the parts into photoshop and created a rough design.

shitty little sketch

From me wasting time waiting for a doctor's appt this afternoon...wouldn't post it at all, except that I'm trying to get something up every day if I draw *anything*...which I suppose this qualifies as *something*

Emily Carr Life Drawing

Really enjoyed the model tonight, she was tall and "hardcore" - felt like I was drawing Heavy Metal covers for 3 hours :)

Spent Friday evening drawing with my buddies up at the Grind :)

ball-point pre-drawing class

While I was waiting for class to start, and while I was listening to her talk about the course structure, I was doodling in my sketchbook...the girl is a girl from my class, the other two are from my imagination ;)

more ballpoint sketches

Some things I did today waiting for class and then for an hour at Grind with my friend Wei.

concept sketches

Working on a retelling of a classic story, "The Book of Three" by Lloyd Alexander as a means of doing some concept design practice. Here are some character thumbnails and very rough sketches, mostly of the "Taran" character.

Just playing around at Grind for a bit before meeting up for dinner.

Here's the final(?) version of the skull garden, I have one more day to work on it, but I think it's done.

Tuesday Sketchgroup - 3/4 view and thumbs

Think I had a breakthrough with my understanding of 3/4 view today, which felt nice. Mostly just doodled around with environment thumbnails ;)

Sunday Life Drawing and Grinding

A combination of life drawing at 221A and sketching at Grind.

Saturday, October 24, 2009


After I hit up the VAG, I was inspired to play around a bit with some landscapes, so I did a few thumbnails before I delved into sketching people. Yesterday, I bought a Royo Sketchbook, hence the topless girl ;)

first skull from the mold!

The City Jumper

Was sitting in the library today at Emily Carr, and I sketched this.

Here's the full mother-mold. I hope I made it right!

half of the mother mold

Here's half of the mother mold for the skull. The second half will be done tomorrow unless I am completely bed ridden by this blasted illness.

Tuesday, October 20, 2009

Stroke Mold

Here's the skull from my sculpture class after applying the stroke mold. Tomorrow I shall create a mother-mold out of plaster, and then we'll be ready to rock!

same parts, 3 machines

For my Creative Processes class, I had to use the parts from last week to make 3 prototypes of possible objects. I went with a robot, an arm and a bomb.

EC Monday Night Life Drawing

Taken with my iPhone, so the quality sucks, but I left my pad at school, so scanning would be difficult ;)
