Last Class Doodles Ever!

Some dumb doodles from this past semester's Art History class. Last class doodles ever! Pretty crazy! Most of them are, of course, of my cat, Zelda (but we call her Baby). I guess this might count as my New Years post? Happy New Year everyone!

Boy with Baseball

It was a lovely few days in Mammoth. The snow was non-existent, so the skiing wasn't too great, but it was  nice to get away from LA and hang with my little sisters for a bit. Ah, bonding. I didn't do much sketching up there, sadly, but here is a colored drawing of a sketch from one of my school notebooks. I realize that the notebook sketches from this past semester may very well be my last, unless I purchase a notebook solely for sketching. Weird! I hope everyone is having fun gearing up for New Years!

Mammoth Owl

Heading off to Mammoth with the family for a few days. Here is a goodbye owl, made while my mom was taking her time to pack this morning.

Merry Christmas!

Further decorated my Christmas bags for my family and friends. It was a great Christmas this year, same routine as every year, though somehow it felt like the end of something. A lot was different, with a couple babies and a few lost loved ones. I think it may mark the arrival of new traditions next year. Maybe Christmas will be at another house next year? I will have to wait and see! Hope everyone's holiday was fantastic as well. On another note, I got a pajama set with a matching dog hat (I know, I'd be jealous too). Happy Holidays to everyone! :)

Gate Background Progress

An update on my background coloring! This is for a scene from my film, well a few scenes, and its almost there! I still need to add a bunch of bushes and trees and things, the drawbridge, and the platform that it opens onto. I will probably bust out the paper tomorrow to finish it for good! Finals work is kicking my butt but it'll be all over soon!

CTN Model Drawings

Some model drawings done at CTN a few weeks ago. I haven't been able to do any since last May, so it was really nice to do figure sketches, even if it was only for a few minutes :) It was a couple, though I didn't do any good ones of the male, and they were dressed in 40s era clothing. Mobsters and guns kinda thing. They did some super fun poses! I hope they do it again next year.

Title Card!

Here's a wycinanki-style title card for my movie. Still not sure how to do the type... I may end up washing out the color a bunch so you can see the words once I put them on top. We'll see how it goes. :)

First Colored Scene!

First colored frame of my first completed scene!! I feel like I've passed a milestone for my film and I'll soon be able to bust out these puppies super quickly, though let's be honest... um, no. It's not completely done, though. I still  need to work out how to animate the leaves. I've done some tests but they aren't quite working out yet. I'm mainly focusing on my Mongol sequence, so hopefully I'll be able to post some new tests from that soon, once they stop looking so crappy :\
