Enviroments and more Enviroments. And one character image.

For Environments, Props, and Structures, we had to take a location outside and make it fit the 3 point perspective. I chose Shibuya Crossing in Tokyo and Karnak Temple in Egypt. ...the results were 50/50. The Shibuya Crossing turned out really well. However, the Karnak Temple didn't turn out as well as I thought. So, I will only show Shibuya Crossing:

For Concept Illustration, we have to create and illustrate two different environments: one fully developed and one underdeveloped. The results? A canyon like "city" and waterfall pod city. ...and this took me about an entire day to complete these.

On the other hand, I realized that rendering in Photoshop is actually fun! XD

Just a small idea for you guys on how I'm doing on human rendering in Photoshop...

I'm getting there...

What I'm going to work on and more...

If anybody recognizes this, kudos to them. This is a practice for digital painting. There will be more of this coming up in this blog...

Character Design Projects and Three Pages of Work

Just a warning before you continue reading: There are a lot of pictures in this post. You have been warned.

Last quarter, I took Character Design for Animation and Digital Coloring and Lettering. Those classes were fun and there were a LOT of work last quarter.

This is the final project for Character Designs: make up our own story and create characters out of them. Then take two of them and make the turnarounds and expressions. I did mine based on the five mystical beasts in Asia. Shapes and posture were emphasized.

This was an earlier assignment that made us work with a franchise. I took Bruce Timm... and took Justice League Unlimited. I had ninja and samurai (go figure...) and this is what I did.

That... was done by hand. The original was done digitally with Photoshop CS4 and CS5. I think I also remembered my hand cramping after all of that.

This is the final for Digital Coloring and Lettering. The title for this is called "Monogatari"- inspired by the ghosts and creatures from Japanese folklore.

As usual, enjoy the images and criticisms are welcome.

Done! For these little assignments...

As the result of two all-nighters... here are the products of what I've done for the vehicles.

This is the tech version of a caravan....

...And this is the bio version.

This was the grandeur vs gutter project for earlier today. The first one is a foyer (originally, it was supposed to be a ballroom. However, I forgot about dancing) and the second one is an abandoned apartment.
