Final pages for Zipa project.

This Tuesday was the final due date for the Zipa project that we've been working on for our advanced illustration class. While i was happy with the character i did, the environment needs much much more work.I should really work on it some more. But I'm really excited to work on the new project too!

More progress work from the Zipa project. I'm having a difficult time making the environments more asymmetrical. However, my character was really fun to make. The coming tuesday is our final day for our first project. I want to finish out strong; so this means I have to work hard. The painting at the top is a illustration for our word of the week: Titanic.

Second week of school! A few pages from my illustration class. We are doing a project based on the myth of El Dorado. One character and one environment. Interesting stuff. Definitely having lots of fun in class. But need to figure out a schedule so I can better utilize my time. Also here's a little something from Cory Loftis. I love his stuff and our teacher made us bring a favorite artist to class. I brought Cory Loftis! So much appeal, texture, and fun! Love his colors and the things he does.
