Decided to practice some speed painting last night and used one of the guys from my last concept assignment as a subject. It’s actually the first time I’ve done a speed painting, and definitely not the last. I liked how I couldn’t second-guess anything, haha.
Some crazy characters developed from photos of textures for my Concept class. :B
Undead Love, T-Shirt Design, Fall 2012
A shirt design I proposed for our second project for the year - something a little spooky, but a little cute.
Lord Ganesha or Ganesh, May 2012
Open assignment for Illustration. Children’s book illustration that would act as an introduction to the different deities of various worldwide religions, with a sister book depicting figures from different cultural mythologies.
I’m not a religious or spiritual person, but I grew up surrounded by the deities and symbols of various belief systems, and kind of needed that comfort from childhood at one point during this semester. When I was a kid, my mother and I had spent about a week in an ashram, and got to know about both Hinduism and Buddhism; a few images of Hindu gods came home with us, and they’ve stayed with me ever since. Ganesha in particular has always been a favorite, and being the Remover of Obstacles, it felt right at the time.
I know it’s probably not 100% accurate, so I apologize to anyone who might take offense. It wasn’t meant to insult or harm.
Journey cover, March 27th, 2012
The final version of a mock-up game cover for Journey made for Computer Illustration, after being given the prompt by a classmate.
I don’t actually own a PS3, and so wound up buying it for a friend and playing it at their place. I’d like to revisit this later, after I’ve had the chance to play the game more (and now that I’m better at Photoshop). The only references I could get of the war machine at the time were blurry pictures of the screen taken with my friend’s phone during game play, so I’d like to correct some of the details, haha.
