Halloween is so close!

We already had the Calarts party, which makes Halloween seem like it has already passed. But it hasn't, so here is some Halloween layout!I wanted the light character to silhouette over the dark character! The colors in this one are kind of weird...

New Layout

If it gets too cluttered at my desk, I just work on the floor because I'm too lazy to clean my actual workspace.

Some More Photoshop Markers

I added some of that soft marker bleeding texture to the photoshop stuff. But maybe It will work for my film stuff. Here's a quick drawing for my film.

Testing some things out

I find I have a lot more fun in life drawing because I play with colors and shapes more instinctually instead of trying to calculate designs, and I want to try to have that same feel in my digital work. I went and drew a couple days ago and I tried to do another drawing digitally to match the feel of the drawings I did in class. I used Mepxy brush markers for the paper drawings, and I tried to make a brush in photoshop that resembles the marker quality, but I only got so far.

If anybody knows how to add that kind of dried out marker quality to a brush that would be really helpful to know!

Hopefully I can incorporate this kind of look into my character design work and other aspects of design, but for now here is a pose that says nothing about anything really...just testing out the brush.

Past Present Future

So for character design this week we had to design a character and then do a version of them if they lived in the past, and then future version. So I did a 1700s colonial firefighter, a present day firefighter, and a future one. I like the present and past ones but the design of the future could be much more interesting...mine is pretty lame.

AAA and a Pig

Two layout drawings. The first was the first assignment we had in layout this year, and it was just a pig in a jungle. I tried to play with patterning but a lot of it was lost to the lighting, and some pattern choices just ended up looking like colored pencil strokes, so they dont read as pattern. But it's an ok drawing
This second drawing is an establishing shot assignment. We had to include a man changing a tire, a car with a flat, and a lady leaning on something, and we had to set it in a desert at a bowling alley at night. I wanted to make it clear that the characters did not know each other, and that the woman was afraid of the man changing her tire, so I pushed them as far apart in the frame as I could and had her contained to the phone booth. I think the drawing is too flat, though, and I did not draw either character very clearly. I need more colored pencil practice!
