Hey, so I haven't posted here in ages.

Anyway, school has started up again, so have some figure paintings! Poses range in length from one to about two and a half hours.

Shepard Commander

Lately I've been on a Mass Effect kick and thought I'd do some fanart of Shepard for fun. I started this Sunday night and finished it Tuesday afternoon.

Sketchy Sketches

Well, as of last Monday I finished up my sophomore year at Ringling. So I'm halfway done.

In other news, here are some sketches I did over the year. Just a couple of character designs and thumbnails, a few from life doodles, you know, the usual stuff.

Some thumbnails from my final illustration assignment, a couple of creatures from China MiƩville's Bas Lag books, and some doodles from the day I spent stuck at the Mini dealership when they didn't fix my car.

The rough sketch for "Until Gwen"

Character designs for Kay and Gerda from my Snow Queen illustration.

Design for the Snow Queen herself.

And as a bonus some quick colors I threw on my designs for older and younger Gerda.

Figure Painting

I recently did my first extended figure in my painting class, a three day session. Previously I had done a few two an three hour poses in my figure drawing class, but nothing that lasted multiple class sessions, so this was a fun departure.

Here's the image as it appeared at the end of day's one and two:

And the final piece at the end of day three:

Until Gwen

Our latest project in Illustration was to illustrate a scene from the short story "Until Gwen" by Dennis Lehane. I decided I'd pull out the old pen and inks and try a traditional piece this time round. Thiel also had me try out some colors in photoshop afterwards pictured here:

Not sure which I prefer yet.

And if you're at all interested in some progress shots then here you go.
