Bubble Gum Bandit

This is for a short story I wrote awhile ago, but finally trying to make a board of the idea. Its a really simple story and the focus is on the gags. This is the character design for the bubblegum bandit, the main character. I am happy with this cause its easy/fun to draw, but I want to make him more banditesque. Maybe a scarf to hide his face? some gum in his hair? I just realized i should of given him arm Sleaves.... Let me know what you think?

Jess and I WON!! at the Asifa Student Film Fest.




Jess and I won at the Asifa Student Film Festival!!! It was pretty exciting! We won the Judges award. Our short 'caffeine headache' is about working at Starbucks and figuring out if it is worth dealing with all the craziness. I'll post more on this since it is pretty exciting.

Textures and Brushes




So I reciently discovered "Brushes" on photoshop. OH! i always knew they existed....but the ones i knew where the crappy ones that came with photoshop. I didn't realize their true POWER!!!! until I got some pretty nice ones some prominent concept artists use *not naming names, but they are freakishly good. So I thought I'd try some painting type stuff.

They make painting digitally SOOOOooooOOOoo much more fun!!! makes me wish I had taken a digital painting class instead of learning this the hard way. Instead of painting every lil tree, there is a TREE BRUSH! Instead of fudging around with textures and crap there are cool Texture Brushes! I've always heard about them and seen the results, but never experienced it first hand.

The ghostship i've been working on and tried that quick mask technique. The other two I did in 1/2 an hour. They are pretty sloppy but it was cool to play around with the brushes. I think i might do some more. Right now I'm looking at compositions, stealing from stuff, because i have hardly any experience in this..nothing in the mental vault to draw upon. Anywho let me know what you think?

GhostShip



I am working on this for my Animation Compostions Class at the union. I made it using the quickmask method of painting in photoshop which our teacher Will Weston showed us. It is weird using this method so far, and will probably take a lot of practice to get used to, but so far it is pretty quick. Let me know what you think?

Working on Portfolio


Here is an image I did for an update on my portfolio. Trying to show i can do more "real" stuff, not just cartoony "kid" cartoons *even though this drawing is still pretty cartoony*. Its based on an older drawing I did. Let me know what you think? Yawn..it is late bed time.
