Been a while since I last posted some actual drawings, so to make up for it, here is a bunch of sketches from my sketchbook. These are all from my very first Moleskin Sketchbook. I bought one a few months back because I've always heard of people using them, but never have myself, and I have to say I am a little disappointed. I feel like I am drawing on manilla folders, and it is nothing what I expected.
But in all fairness I have never been an "artsy" person. Growing up, I never used any other mediums other than regular white paper and pencils, and while I was at SVA, I did some experimentation with pastels, water color, and Conte Crayon's, but rarely did I ever experiment any further when it came to supplies and materials. Not that I was never open too...I just...didn't. My loss I guess.
But anyways, on to the sketches....

These first 2 I wanted to emulate my pal Jimbo and experiment with shapes...

These 2... I wanted to try my hand at character design. Now by no means would I ever consider myself a good designer, because I am far from it. But I thought it would be a fun little experiment to pick an animal at random, do some reference sketches, and then see if I could turn that animal into a cast of characters. Again I tried to explore different shapes and body types,and personalities and I think I did an okay job, but I feel very limited when it comes to this stuff. I have a hard time breaking out of my comfort zone, and often revert back to certain stylistic choices. It's a fun little challenge, regardless of whether it is successful or not...

This one was an case you couldn't figure it out...

And lastly...just some random crap done while on the subway...

iTutor Update _Assignment 3_ Final

Been really busy with a few freelance projects, so it's been difficult, but I finally managed to squeeze in some time to finish this last assignment. I simplified I few things such has his cup placement, lip sync, and facial expressions.
Overall I am pretty happy with it, and looking forward to starting the next test, but for now, it's time to add this to the reel and send it out.
