This is for a class assignment. I'm going to pick one pose and then apply color to it on a larger scale. I think I'll use either one from the last page

Sketch Pages 242-244

For this page I took some of my old quick ref'd studies of animals, found the ones with nice silhouettes, and made new critters.
.
This is a really great way to come up with ideas fast. I have the tendency to worry about poses when I'm doing thumbnails much more than paying attention to design.
In my History of Film class we watched The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.
omg. that movie. omg
.
I think I'm in love.
The movie has so many elements that I love: the sets are amazingly painted and have unsettling angles, the lighting is beautiful, and the actors have such great expressive faces.
.
I can honestly say that I was more creeped out by this film than by any horror film that I've watched in the last five years.

Aaaand I'm in a Pokemon phase again. :P
.
I like doing finished oil pastel paintings with creepy eyes so here is an idea for charizard.
.
Oh and I just realized that I should have put "who's" instead of "hows"...
Eh, it's next to derpizard. It works.

Here are some studies from my costumed figure drawing class.
.
I don't feel like they are very good but I do think that they got better as the class progressed.

Battle Trumpet Redo

I'm on a quest to create more portfolio pieces and make my current portfolio pieces less poo-like.
.
Onward to victory! Or despair, whatevs.
.
This is a skull-battletrumpet-thingymajigger that I made, oh i dunno, a year ago I think.
^Old version^
.

^New version (+1 hour of work)^
.
I think (I hope) it's a little bit better. It needs more work though. I'm still not sure about the yellow light that comes from the right and that hanging cloth thing looks like garbage.
.
I'll keep whittling away at it.

Studies, personal artwork, and brainfarts ahoy!

















Some friends were playing basketball and I took the oppurtunity to WATCH and DRAW THEM.
I'm always watching.
.
alwaaaaaaays





















A critter inspired by Jillian's awesomesauce critters. I don't draw creepy critters that often anymore and I really missed it.







And raaaaaaaaaaage on this last page.
.
Oh but hey! I met one of my goals: I finished 50 pages during my 3 week break.
I have a hard time completing personal goals, this was a triumph for me.
.
And I almost met my other goal of finishing page 200 before new years day. I was a day late hurr hurr
