This is how cool I am:
I don't have a scanner, so I'm going to comfortably hide behind that excuse, and offer it up to you boys as an explanation for my lack of participation as of late.
It feels a bit silly now, considering that you both have seen most of what I've been doing these days, but I feel the need to put things on here. I need to. So here it goes:
This is my finished (although it still needs revisiting) Aesop's Fable illustration. I do plan on adding some of that darker purple around the mouth of the cave to define the interior/exterior, but I still think that it's a bit odd-looking. It's probably that dark line work on the trees and fox, isn't it?
Finished sketches for Mark's "Power of Light/Personal Blahblah" assignment. Surprisingly, I decided to illustrate the connection between my appreciation of art as well as science. Since we had to employ descriptive or illustrative light, I chose to go the old trump l'oeil route. It's simple, I suppose. I much prefer the first one, but we've got to bring both to finish, so ...we'll see.
I'm really starting to enjoy drawing like this. It's good to be forced into it...I usually find life drawing to be too intimidating. Now I'm just having fun trying to draw funny kid postures and people's lumpy heads.
OMG. This was such a pain to put together...Jimmy had to take me through the babysteps of getting that grassy shape married to a watercolor swatch that I'd scanned in. Hooey. I suck at Photoshop. I did all of the components by hand (just look at that bottom text..) and brought them together digitally. It's not exactly what I was hoping to achieve, but it's 3:30am, and I'm still running on the high I felt after figuring out the clipping mask thing on my own for those pieces of furniture.
This one made me think of you a lot, Travis. For two stupidly obvious reasons. :)
I'm going to go pass out over here now.
