"Jack and the Beanstalk" Finished

Wooo! This one was fun! Definitely should not have procrastinated on it though. Anyways, I feel like I got a little better at trying different brushes to distinguish different textures, and I really like how the yellow light, that's given off from the magical beanstalk, shimmers. If I could change anything, I would have spent more time on the rough sketches, and looked for a better composition. (I always settle on a layout too quickly hehe) But nevertheless, this one is definitely going in the portfolio.

Thumbnails for Jack and the Beanstalk

My Final project is to recreate a classic children's story to a new and different setting and context. I chose to change the story "Jack and the Beanstalk" to feature a small lizard and a T-Rex!

Here are some ideas for the composition that I liked and some plant sketches. I always start with some rough doodles. It helps get my ideas flowing!

More Digital Painting

This assignment was kind of a challenge for me. I'm new to digital painting, and making things look real (and not cartoonish) is not my forte! Overall, I'm happy with how it came out though. I still need to practice using different brushes to create varying textures of wax, bone, and books. Gotta keep practicing!

Another Cat

Just some motivation for anyone going through finals. Wish I could give everyone a Redbull! If only Redbull actually gave everyone wings...

Finished bird project

After selecting one of my old sketchbook drawings, I re-worked it on photoshop and helped my little bird drawing come to life! It was challenging for me, but all in all, i'm proud of the outcome! (Even if I turned it in late teehee) Through this project i have discovered a fun new way to draw and learned a little bit about digital painting along the way. Can't wait to make more art on photoshop :)

Weekend Paintings!

This past weekend I made a painting of my boyfriend's red mini cooper as a gift for our 6 year anniversary. He loves his car (almost as much as me haha) so here are some photos of the painting throughout the process of making it.

This one is a sketch of the car I made by shining a cell phone light through a window with help from my sister. It was drawn on a canvas pad. Initially the road was meant to have a railing, but I took it out because I thought it was ugly. Maybe the car likes to live on the edge.
Chili pepper red paint job and my first attempt at the shading on the hood.
Starting to look like a car!
Throw in some scenery and it is almost done.
Framed and ready to be hung! :)
