One down!

One more post for today, this is my first finished concept for my senior studio! Probably one of my favorite pieces.

More sketches

 Some creature concepts I was throwing around.
Both of these are concepts for a big eyed lemur with bioluminescent spots. I like some stuff from both variations. I hoped to have a more finalized version made soon if I catch a breather from school. The other thing at the top left of the right page is a water mole.

Messing around with hoofed animals which I did not have a lot of practice in. Middle is my favorite, based partially of tapirs, various antelopes and ancient carnivore ungulates.

I like platypus (platypi?), so I was messing with a more land based version, converting its very fin like limbs into ones more similar to otters and multiplying it's poison stinger.

Cartoony animals sketched while at the Ottawa Animation Festival.

Sketchbook dump!

 Multi subject sketch dump. First Zootrip animal sketches! Lots of fun.

Alligator snapping turtle, holds perfectly still for hours.

Toledo Zoo got a new young snow leopard that was running and jumping at us.

In the "Birds of your backyard" exhibit, there were two house cats fighting and then they slipped under the fence and disappeared

Lifedrawing, Past and present!

These are life drawing studies from Spring semester 2010 and a few more from this last month. I primarily sketch small and in pencil. A few of these were with a charcoal pencil.

WIP- Senior Studio Characters

Three Character concepts for my senior studio project. By the end there will be 9ish fully painted characters. There will also be little scenes from the story I'm working on that are also going to be included in the senior studio project. The two humans are works in progress for the final product, while the cat is just the finished color concept, but not in it's final solo pose.

Sketches from Summer

   A worked a few of these I worked on over the summer and one was something I was doing during the school year and found buried on my hard drive.

A crabshark... you can ride!
Humming Bee thing...

Not finished, but thats probably because school distracted me.

The beginning..

The semester has started. I will be posting my progress on my my various school projects as well as my random sketches and such. I'm taking senior studio, advanced digital imaging, professional practices, and some other classes that don't really pertain to this blog.

Mostly I want to use this to document my better works and show off my portfolio. Sketches will be included plenty.

This already is more organized than that really weird portfolio website my teachers forced me to make last year.
