Riding into the New Year in Style!


decided to show a different take on gouache compared to my flower plant thing :)
oh, also i think in order for my gouache to work to its maximum potential i need to paint on heavier paper

My Production for RTVF 30!

So, in RTVF 30 (intro to film production) we all produce our own 3-4 minute show. You come up with the main idea, write a script, bring props, write a cg list, and sit back and watch as the director does your show. Please keep in mind that the actors are assigned to you and no matter what you write in the script, it won't be the same during show time. IMPROV. anyways, your other classmates do other jobs that they would really do in a real studio setting like, Technical director, floor director, lighting director, cameras 1-3, audio, cg... etc.

btw, he is talking funny cuz i told him to do an british accent like bear grylls... this is what he gave me

Now, i give you... MAN VS. NATURAL DISASTER!

BTW, YOU HAVE TO SKIP TO 1:07 for the actual show to start.
(the first minute is for bars/tone, slate, and blacking it up)

Speed painting #3: alright finally did it this time! 55 min =). heheheheeeeeeee. okay.


Art 112a Figure Drawing!

Some of my Art 112a stuff. I liked having Cameron teach me how to figure draw. His technique is very useful in seeing proportions. But his technique was also confusing because we could only use straight lines for a while but my Art 55 class wanted to be loosey-goosey so i was really confused. But near the end, i think i did get better because i was able to mesh those two techniques together and get better overall at figure drawing. (I should hope so since i basically drew naked people 3 times a week)

SHELDON'S CLASS IS GOING TO BE AWESOME. i'm going to learn so much more and get wayyy better
from my first figure drawing session with no help:

10 min pose:

Introduction to Cameron's techniques:


speedpainting #2! yay. i'm getting more comfortable with photoshop but still going over an hour! grrr. my concentration is always ruined by things going around in my house (Tobi) so i think i'll probably have to paint somewhere else where it's quiet...

Thank you Catharina Sukiman! haha lol, i'm basically mooching off of her blog to get the original pictures that i can practice drawing. =). honestly, i have no idea where to get the pics that Goro sent over so i guess i'll just get it from Catharina.

Art 55

 some of my Art 55 (beginning figure drawing) work. It's missing two of my favorite figure drawings because my professor wanted to keep them over the summer to showcase it. So when I get those back I will upload them.



my first speed painting. I totally forgot how to use photoshop so this took me over an hour. i had to re-acclimate myself and try out a lot of different techniques. ANYWAYS, i need a lot of work =). but this was fun and i cant wait to get better.

ART 112a sketchbook

Here are some of my favorite sketches from my sketchbook. I know this sounds weird but i think i need to practice drawing IN a sketchbook... it's hard to explain BUT I just need to generally practice drawing.
