so it's sunday and it's two days after graduation. i'm still trying to believe that it's all over. no more school...i'm going to miss it, i know it. went to my friend (who also graduated with me) ivan's grad party. it was really really cool, good food, good company and good music provided by ivan and his band "the raga". thank you ivan! anywhoo, here's a couple of explorations of my (if you will) "main character" of my demo reel. i'll be working a lot to update my portfolio so be sure to come back to see some spanking brand new stuff. now it's time to conquer the world.
so these little dudes here are my little paper cutout toys that i will be handing out at my school's portfolio show. i got the template online and just threw my design onto it. turned out pretty good for my first time. my girl is the one making all of them for me, so shout out to my girl!! but yeah this is the first batch done..back to work
here's my spanking new business cards that i will be passing out at my portfolio show. these little bad boys look way better than my old one, i blocked out my phone number, heh just a lil nervous postin that up you know...but then again it's on my resume, so i can't win lol....anywhoo, i just hope they come just in time for the show though..oy yoy yoy. more art comin!!
so my demo reel show is tomorrow and that's when i find out if i pass. nervous times my friends :) anywhoo i wanted to share some art that i did on card board. i've always like drawing on them since i was a wee lad. but yeah i did this one in one of my classes last term. it's basically what keeps me going and what i like. so i drew my family and some of my interest. i've also made a new business card so i'll share that with soon.
first off, like many artist bloggers out there would say, i'd like to apologizing for the lack of post of me poor blogs. rest assure i will post new art for you soon. i am graduating in about a month, so my schedule has been jam packed with demo reel and i must say a little of laziness.
anywhoo, just like to share a photo booth picture i took with my twin brother, sister and brother-in-law at my cousins wedding at the beautiful aquarium of the pacific in my hometown Long Beach, Ca. the photo booth was a great idea to do and will have some great memories for my cousin and his new bride. congrats mark!! but yeah i'll be posting some stuff from my demo reel soon.
sorry for the lack of post, as some of you know or understand school is taking a whole lotta time, but i did get some stuff down to show. anywhoo this is for my studio class. more character design for a project we're doing. i'm not to sure if i can go in length with it, but i can say that it's about magic.
What-else before i post the pictures...ah yes! i am pleased to say that i along with my wonderful girlfriend, has work together in making a zipperboy doll!!! if you don't remember who he is, he's posted here on this blog...so take a gander. but yes off of my design my girl did her "magic" i'll post some pictures of him real soon.
so i'm sitting here at school right now stressing on my demo reel..only natural right? anywhoo, i'm working on a whole slew of characters for the m00ksville project and i decided i'll show one even though i'm not finish with it.
Man with all the craziness of going back to school and getting almost ready to graduate i forgot to show off my new business card! Silly me tsk tsk tsk. when designing this card i was thinking since i am a character designer i should make the card into a character, so i designed myself! well here it is taken by my good ole buddy "Mac"
here's some character designs for my 3d studio class. it's from a project we can't really talk about. but here's a first pass of one of the characters. the other picture is of a old lady that will be in my demo reel. i'm designing a whole lotta characters for my m00ksville project. hopefully i can upload them on me blogs in a timely manner.
so i'm in sunny san diego again with my family.strangely it is not so sunny heh heh, but yes we went to the con saturday and the place was packed! met sean "cheeks" galloway who by the way went all out to my little one when she was being shy, much love cheeks!!! also met "The" steven silver, brandon "ragnar" johnson and the very cool mr. gris grimly.
today we went to seaworld, and being it the first time i went here i thought it was pretty cool. saw some really awesome shows, so i'll post some pics up soon.
well school is finally out for the summer break, and this time around it is one whole month. it's not the time to slack tho being close to graduation and all so i'll be bustin my tail to bring you some stuff from my demo reel and the likes....but here's a quick sketch with some textures thrown on...inspired from my friends at school...
so i'm continuing my little wood drawings for my collection of pieces called the m00k collection, which will be of people i know and admire. this particular one is of my beautiful other half jack. done in, yes again prisma col-erase blue, red and prisma white
so here it is. bobby mentioned to me that we should do the three little pig story. so what i did all day was to do research and designs of the wolf. it was pretty tough i tell ya...but much fun nonetheless. so here's what i done so far....more to come peeps!!!
well here i go in my fine artist wanna be gallery dude faze....i did a self portrait on a 4X4 wood panel with col erase blue and prisma white. oh and if you didn't notice my alter ego(s) m00k right behind me.
boy i'm really catching up for lost times on me blog. here's some sketches i did in my story writing class. the two characters is of bobby and i. it wasn't really intended to be us, but a lot of people assumed it, so i threw up my arms and said what the hey, it's us. :) the other is just randomness
here's a drawing i did of a cowboy yesterday. i was giving my friend A.J a demo on what my process is in designing a character. i was a bit nervous account of me not really doing anything like that, but i did have a good time doing it, and talking about art was even cooler. anywhoo, check out his site on my links. anthony jones, remember that name.
sorry i've been gone for a week, i got a little busy with school and the likes, but i made sure that i got my draw on. anywhoo, today's drawings are of some sketches of random faces done on toned paper, using blue .05 mechanical pencil (btw i haven't used in forever) and prisma white pencil. i always love drawing the face, any shape size or color they're always fun to draw. the other sketch is of a high school football coach. while drawing this one, i was thinking of my teacher in high school who was also the coach of the football team. he was a cool guy, but he always wore the same get up. i'll post up soon guys
so for our 3d pre production class for our next short, i decided to put some culture in the house that we modeled. so here's a couple of passes african masks. i used some photo reference online to give me some inspiration. done in sketchbook pro
boy what a night! went to disney animation and saw some really great stuff. spoke with a lot of students as well, people from our sister school in san diego, and some charming girls from loyola marymount university. hope to hear from you guys soon!
anywhoo, here's some old stuff from the pass i did. a few character designs and some backgrounds i did for our studio class last term, along with the guidance of my friend bobby walker.
