Master Copyin'

Boy oh man, we had to do some black and white master copy thumbnails and sketches for my class. It's only supposed to take a few minutes, but that's way too hard for me.

Here are the thumbnails:

And the more developed sketches:

After toiling over these I do think I have a better grasp of tone and shape in landscapes. Hurrah! I'm also learning a lot about digital paint. I have very little experience with digital painting, but I have nearly 10 years of digital cartooning under my belt. It's definitely helping. :) Stay tuned for more! I want to scan in my acrylic pinecone painting, but my teacher still has them.

Spring 2013 Portfolio!

Hey everyone! It's been a while since I've updated. This was the portfolio I submitted to my Animation/Illustration program this past spring. :) I also had to complete a sketchbook over the summer to secure my place in the program. Most of my summer was spent sleeping, and waking up occasionally to draw and work. 

I will make sure to post some of my favorite sketchbook pages soon! For now, here's the portfolio that got me in.
