Gotta Get Better

Lately I've been studying loomis and other masters to expand my knowledge of anatomy. It's something I should have taken more seriously a long time ago but with 3 years more of schooling I think I'll have time to repent.

Study of a woman's face

This started out as a simple pencil drawing in my sketch book and got a little more love in photoshop. It was a good study but study none the less.

Painting Assignment

Value exercise for Sam's class. Work in progress. Mostly putting it up to use my blog as a replacement for my busted external hard drive. P.S. actual design not my own it's a modern cartoon design done by Ben Balisteri . This later version I did after watching Tom one of the great artist up here at Avalanche.

This is my nephew Mason and his beautiful sister Lauren nick named La La. We went to Disneyland as a family for Labor Day weekend and had a great time. My little neice Ava who's pushing 4 was absolutely beside herself. It was her first time at the park and she did not run out of energy. I the faded drawing of Lauren's face framing Mason's head it was an accident but a happy one I think.

Ghosts in the Darkness...SCARY!! This was another value/arcitectual study. I played around with the atmospheric perspective and the overall mood by darkening and boosting the contrast considerably to get that eerie feeling seen in some of those late 19th century landscapes done in black and white. Here's two variations and a colorversion in progress let me know which one you like better

Another Value study. Man do I need to paint more

Sunday, July 20, 2008

For our lunch breaks a group of us concept guys take a half hour to an hour to do these quick digital black and white value studies. It's a relaxing exercise which is ideal right after eating a big meal.

Today I went to the zoo with my good friend Jason Kim. It was a lot of fun even though the place was packed and the heat felt like burning.

So I'm trying to streamline more and here's one of the more successful ones.

The Dreaded Unitopse. This is my toy design for Joe's class. It's not for small children due to his dangerous horn

Some komodo dragon sketches with brush pen and other sketchbook junk. I've been doing these animal studies to understand the anatomy a little better.

Monkey Design for our group story board that takes place in Africa.

I added a little bit of atmospheric perspective on this one mostly to help unify the cool and warm color shapes.

So this is a truck i observed and drew that was parked just outside the wilkinson center. It's nice to have a still subject once and a while.

Redo of Bonosour

Study of the night. At night the colors became desaturated alot more than I thought. Even the most seemingly intense, saturated colors in the pallet are far from the purest hue. 3 out of 10...

Yeah I know it looks like I just took a photo and tried to pull a fast one on old Ryan. No!! I painted it really and then added the texture to make it look more painterly.
