updates 11/26/2013

Our line layouts and value comps are due today. I modeled stuff out on maya and brought the images to photoshop to draw on top of. It's turning out pretty well in the sense that i like how things are turning out. That said, there are a lot of things i have to work on and i need to spend more time fixing values and refining them. But I'm so glad thanksgiving is here! need some quality time with the family :)

Been working on a new project these last few weeks for our intermediate illustration class. Still in the Gary Soto 1950s Fresno universe but now it is a treehouse design project.Up top are a couple paintings i did for photoshop practice using Dice Tsutumi's digital painting method. The three under are practice paintings for the treehouse project. The last few are ideations, prop studies and some exploration for exterior shot for the treehouse. It's getting to the last couple months before finals, gotta fire it up!

even though it took me so long.. i finally finished doing my 30 day challenge. Here is day #30, something you want to tell your friends. I guess what I realized is that, as i grew older i lost a lot of imagination. Sometimes it comes out, but working in this industry i feel like we as artist need to be imaginative every day, with everything that we do. Also we must look at things we see in a different way than how others might see it. I borrowed the colors from a Leyendecker piece, just wanted to make something simple. There are a lot of things that i want to learn, i hope i have enough time to learn all of them. 
here's a stop motion that i did yesterday with a couple of friends
