A preview of things to come.
Messing around with character designs for a comic I’m thinking of doing for The Seneca Collective. Hopefully this will make sense eventually.
A motion comic preview of the next chapter of the webcomic Lemon Inc., which can be read at lemon-inc.com. It’s Andy’s dream to be a rich business mogul, but how will he get there if he won’t even serve a single customer? The background music is “Kiss Me, Son Of God”, by They Might Be Giants. I reccommend watching it in HD. It improves that quality a lot.
YAAAAAAAY!! I had fun doing groceries at Walmart tonight. Possibly too much fun.
This is my self portrait for Design 1. We were supposed to do a self portrait or a portrait of someone else in the style of chuck close. It took me a while to figure out how to work in Chuck Close’s style and when I finally did I ran out of time to finish the body and the background in his style. I’m pretty happy with how my face came out though.
This is my self portrait for Colour Studio. We were supposed to make a self portrait using three of the principles of colour that we learned throughout the semester. I chose to use value, depth, and vibrating colours, because those were the three principles which I enjoyed using the most. We were also supposed to work in an element of our personality or history. I was originally planning on doing a more realistic self portrait so that I could take full advantage of value and depth but I really wanted it to have a cartoony element to it which is how I ended up with the “Kate Beaton’s fat pony” mouth. I was planning on just giving myself regular lips but when I drew it in the thumbnails it made me laugh so much that I couldn’t resist using it in the final portrait. I used the happy sun in the background to work in vibrating colours and to incorporate part of my personality (I’m usually in a sunny mood).
This is my personal icon for Design class. Yes, it is me riding a dolphin with batwings. Yes, this was the most awesome homework assignment ever. I presented a black and white version which I think went over pretty well but we had the option of presenting a colour version as well, which I had really wanted to do, especially since I included a rainbow in the background and those don’t translate particularly well to black and white. Unfortunately, I had to re-ink the linework since my first attempt was too messy to present and I didn’t leave myself with enough time to colour it. Anyway, here is the icon in colour, as it was meant to be.
