Big Dump for Yooou

Here's part of my sketchbook as promised. There's a ton more that I gotta scan. Ran out of time to do so though. Boo.

Been watching a lot of Modern Family lately. Gotta say Gloria is one of my favourite characters. Everything about her is so well done and true to her culture too. 

Eugene calls me "Ree". We were talking about buttery things. This was the result.

Concept for that big small project. It's not a zoom in, I just wanted to crop it... 

Studies mostly. Oh yeah. My new favourite things are pitt oil base pencils. I can't get over how amazing they are.

Not sure if you all know about how much I love fish and stupid derpy looking things. Especially stupid derpy looking fish. Practising character designs on the left. Fun amusing drawing on the right.

Anyway I'm gonna be in Vermont for the weekend at Jay Peak for some quality snowboarding time. I think I've bragged about this everywhere now except my blog. Excited!

But guess what's more exciting? Going to California during reading week! Hoping to get at least a few awesome sketches of the wonderful west coast. We're scheduled to see LV, LA, San Fran, and Death Valley! Desert landscapes, mountains, beaches, circuses & shows, trams & trolleys, beautiful houses, cramped architecture, intricate infrastructure, crazy lights & engineering, and Americans! 

Anyway stay tuned for vacation drawings!
Thanks for looking. Hope you all have a great long weekend!

Original done by Thomas Scholes - digital

Master Copy (aka my failure attempt) - gouache on watercolour paper
Wow this is so hilariously terrible... 

Stress relieving digital painting of an internally broken skeleton person

There are so many sketches in my sketchbook I want to post here but there is no time! Will try to get more stuff up before the weekend though!

Happy Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day!

Big Small Project for M. Komza's Layout class. The graticule is sideways.

My first flash animation EVER. We had to use a motion tween, shape tween, 3D tween, classic tween, and rig a character in adobe flash. Frustratingly fun now that I think about it.

Lastly, at the request of one of my followers, my work environment... part of it at least.

Things on the desk: monitors, water bucket, brushes, cellphone, scanner, printer paper, gouache palette, cup of coffee, pencil case, gouache paint, roll of masking tape, toilet paper, tablet pen

Things on the wall: 2 achromatic gouache studies, to do list, addresses, master list deadline sheet, weekly class schedule, improvement list, nostalgic crumpled drawing of a broken foot.

Things on the chair: sweater, leggings, brushes canvas (where I keep my brushes), pencil crayons, painting I'm currently working on. 

Things on the floor: recycling, garbage can, candy jar, chocolate covered peanuts, chinese food bag, tablet, socks, sketchbook.

Hope you're all having ice cream for breakfast.
More to come soon!
