Animals and Alien

It was my boyfriend's birthday on the weekend. Being the poor art student that I am I painted him a picture. Done with gouache on 15" x 10" watercolour paper. Touched it up a bit with pen and pencil on the GO-Train afterwards; scans instead of photos to come afterwards.

Not too happy with it. The sky could be better.... since we just finished cloud studies in painting class. Didn't plan out the colour scheme too well either. Oh well. The painting itself was pretty fun.

In other news our class went to the Royal Winter Fair not too long ago. Here are some of my favourite gestures. Studies to come soon!

Brush pen is amazing for gestures.

I love colouring. Love love love. Colour experimentations.

These chickens were by far the most amusing thing there. If I had a farm I would dye all my chickens. They reminded me of live Christmas lights.

A classmate asked me what subject I thought I was doing the best in. Had to think about that one for a bit, but I'd say layout... mostly because I really enjoy that class. Something about technical drawings really appeal to me. Perhaps I'm just a crazy nazi tyrant who finds beauty in order and straight lines?

Anyway I can't decide which presentation I like better. The video is the same as the shots, just in video format.

Actually I think I like the 2d illustration layout better than the video. You can appreciate the details so much more but I guess they both have their purposes.

In other news, my squid animation is coming along. Just waiting to get it back from marking so I can work on it some more. And then figure out how to pan it.

Here have a mini pan for now.... I actually really like the background for this. Ironically it was all done with mouse...

Some of the Stuff I've Been Working On

You'd think that during reading week, when one has a whole week off, one could find some time to update ze blog. Clearly this was not the case. Unfortunately that blog updating time was rudely interrupted by holy-shit-Team-Fortress-2-halloween-event-devil-tail-for-pyro-must-get time. Even more so unfortunately I didn't get that damn tail-of-the-crypt.

Anyway, excuses aside, here are some life drawings that Mark Thurman did not particularly like over some other particular life drawings.

Also to add to my streak of unfortunateness, I didn't make the life drawing wall-of-fame this week. It made my heart hurted. Apparently there are somethings I do not know about life drawing. I must dissect some brains and do more studies.

These were actually quite fun because I've never done just torsos before. I enjoyed very much trying to figure them out.

Other than that I went to costumed life drawing. What should I work on? Is there a book on costumed life drawing anyone would like to reccommend?

And now a combination of the two! Almost naked bodies! She's wearing a starfish ok?
Kinda wanna colour these. I mean all the work on the line art would be such a waste if I didn't.

And that's that for that. I leave you with this stress relieving just for fun doodle. Somehow despite this never ending work I managed to squeeze out some fan art.

More stuff to come soon!

P.S. Happy Birthday Aethyr. :)
