Personal WIP

These are included in my ongoing project that I'll update as much as I can or every now and then, just to focus on an idea I came up with this year... for fun! The illustration of the boy by an apple tree and the firefly-eating monster were originally two separate assignments during my character design for animation class last spring. I was surprised Nate posted 4 of my work (thank you!). I thought it would be nice to combine the two characters in one story. My designs will probably change overtime tho.

Most are work in progress for now.



This one was inspired by Julia's design, one of the M.E. ladies ;)

So yeah... my "portfolio" is under construction... probably forever!

leap test

I drew them, and Rich used flash. We make a good team!
We're not animators but this was fun ;)
 Ah~ so much to learn!



Trying to do as much traditional work as possible...

EDIT: I had an adult sketch on this post. I felt it was out of place compared to the rest of my work here. I wanted to show it because of the line work :) so hope you liked that about my sketch if you saw it.

Clean version.
Thanks to Julia, Iris, and Rich for their feedback!

Best birthday week everrrr~

Last month was fun. Now it's portfolio time, again. I always feel I'm not ready to work only because I want to continue to learn and enjoy art. But I also would love to grow as a better artist in studios. I do prefer being surrounded by talented and creative people than our apartment walls anyway.

99 - monster WIP

 Hello! ( ^o^)/
I've mentioned 3D printing for a while now... Rich couldn't wait for me to finish my model so he printed a prototype.  Hope you like it so far! Sorry for the phone quality photos ^^;


My watercolor version is on the CGMA student gallery under character design for animation :)

Size comparison.


phone sketch


Rich bought a new samsung phone, and the sketchbook pro on it is pretty fun! It would be nice if it came with a flip or mirror image option because I use it often. Pen is pressure sensitive. The size of the phone is kinda awkward tho, imagine having a mini tablet or a scientific calculator against your ear, LOL~

I tried organic modeling before and it gave me a headache, lol. Here's my 2nd attempt, with photo ref this time. SUPER FUN. I never thought I'd enjoy it so much, but I'm gonna leave it for a while because I don't want to get frustrated with her hair XD
 



I have more fun drawing on cheap sketchbooks =P

fun class


One of those random days.


Watercolors.


Pirates for hire.

I just finished a class at CGMA, Character Design for Animation, taught by Nate Wragg. I thought this was very challenging, since I don't really have any animation background. I have a long way to go, but at least I'm off to a good start.

glow


 This was my first week's assignment for character design class. I was experimenting on rendering cleanly. I'll rework the design a little, but this was a fun try :)

I should practice drawing more monsters, lol.

 For those who wondered why I titled some posts halo-halo...
 It's because I like variety in art :P
Plus, it's one of my favorite desserts, lol.
