Another day, another update.
Got a little closer to finishing the bear/kid layout in the market place. I'm going for a slightly different look than I normally have in the past. I still need to resolve a bit more of the foreground, and how to make the bear and kid stand out better against the backdrop.

Here's a design for the internship where I show process. I'm not sure about this one yet. I don't know if she's quite strong enough. I change my mind about this one every other day.

After looking over my images to put in my portfolio for the internship, I realized that I don't do nearly enough layout images. So here are the initial tests:
These were a nice starting point to get into the zone, but they're definitely not portfolio material. Colors are puke, and they're waaay to plain. Not to mention a complete lack in character.
So here was the next image I'm working with. It's a plump bear in a zoo. It's still in process, but there will be a little girl standing by his cage, and a few figures in the foreground. Much better than the puke-scapes.Here's a shot of the same bear and girl walking through a crowded marketplace. (obviously not done..WHERES DA BEAR?)

So anywho....more updates soon....

Okay, so here it goes! My first blog post on my new website. Slowly I'll be compiling older posts into some archives for easier viewing of past works, but I figured it's best to just start this one off fresh from where I stand right now.

This week was spent doing major work on my degree project for illustration. Which consists of making several 3D maquette sculptures. I haven't painted any of them, but suggestions are more than welcome. Here's a quick preview:

In a flurry of work I am also working to complete a portfolio to apply at a big fancy internship. So it's full speed ahead on a few new pieces. Which included a redo of an older piece. Rest in peace universal clock tower set:
