Spring Break!

It's right in the middle of Spring Break at the moment for us San Jose kids. It's nice to get a chance to recharge. But it still means I have to bring it for when school comes back. I need to do my group works but I finally caught up with errands that I should have done a long time ago. And I have time to do some painting for fun!

also some word of the weeks from classes a couple of weeks ago. "Tractor Pull", "Godzilla", and "Dilute"

1980s New York Flower Shop

Some Final pages from the New York City project from my Advanced Illustration Class. It was a lot of learning and I had a lot of fun also doing the project. Definitely need to work on my Environment and work on my volumes and light.

New York Project - Character

I went missing there for a few weeks, but I was gone for a good  reason. We're starting on a new project for our Advanced Illustration class. It's based on a flower shop in 80's New York. It's been a lot of fun trying to bring the feel of the time and culture of New York in the 80's. Here are some initial character designs for the Flower Shop Owner.

Here's the second week of ideations. Focusing more on portraying the feeling of a flower shop owner at first glance. I added flower textile patterns from the 80's as well; to add more of an indication of the time and culture.

Here's what I chose to go forward with to the final. Tiny Grandma Rosie! I need to work on this some more. Hopefully it will look more finished and defined when I am done.

Here's a really rough Maya Model I made to make sure that the lights and volumes are correct.
Here's the first pass of the Render using the maya model as an example. 
Next week is the final! Almost done - but need to work super hard to make it look better!
