Sunday Concepting

So while painting at the apartment Teddy decided we all should do a concept based off of a phrase for a couple of hours . So we pulled pieces of paper out of hat with words on them and the one we got was " twilight garden" . So we had about 2 hours to paint something based off that concept . I did a couple of thumbnails and drew some things out , then basically went head first into it and this is what I came up with . I liked the result but I felt I could definitely push it more . But once again it just takes more practice.

All I See

So I have totally been off task this morning . Supposed to do some 3d , but I can't concentrate so I decided to do a couple speed paints . I was rather inspired by the song all I see by Kylie Minogue . I did some thumbnails trying to get that clubbing feel of bright lights with lots of people . But yeah if you hear the song you can kind of see what my painting is. Ok back to work!!!

Season's Greetings

its the holiday seasons which is my favorite season of the year . and it finally got cold so i get to wear my scarf which my bro gave me from germany. So I thought I'd do a holiday painting to get in the mood . The mistletoe I thought would be funny because I have this weird look on my face like I'm looking at some chick at the distance , but ne ways happy holidays.

Custom Brushes

just recently bought the 3d total custom brush tutorials , which obviously came with some cool custom brushes . Haven't used any in a very long time ( you develop bad habits ) . I try to paint it all by hand or draw it all by hand so that I don't become reliant upon the tool . Anways I thought I give the brushes a try . they were very fun!!

Eliminating weaknesses one day at a time

did some sketches of a swampy/ forest like environment . I did a couple preliminary sketches to get my ideas out of paper as well as composition. I wanted to be very loose which was kind of hard because I'm used to a more tighter style . But like Carlo said I must eliminate my weaknesses

Creature Design

Creature Design for Carlo's class . I have learned a great deal over that the academy . I definitely want to take it again along with an environment class . I had an original design prior to this . Carlo owned me so I redesigned it . Definitely makes me think harder . I must attack my weaknesses head on!!

Passing Moments

Got rather inspired by Casshern , and the new song "street lights" by Kanye West . Both have such an emotional impact . So I liked the idea of the ending in Casshern where Tetsuya is riding with his wife . They seem so happy , I think the reasoning behind it is because its so simple . He rides his bike and she simple holds on to him tight as if they don't want the moment to end.
Such a simple scene yet there is so much impact.

Tree Post

I recently did some freelance work for a facebook application game . Unfortunately none of the work will be used for the game , but I did learn a lot about adapting to different art styles and developed some nice relationships. I hope to work with them in the near future again . Ill be posting some more work from the stuff I did so stay tuned

C.G. awakening

this was a total joke idea I did for Chelton ( a.k.a chocolate god or c.g. for short ) . Basically its his epic soul calibur character that he created and its the story of him finding his sword in this cave . LOL don't ask its totally cheesy but it was fun to do it
