Made to Serenade

So, more robot love themed artwork from back in January. I really wanted to try doing some isometric drawing, so I thought this was a good time to do it.

The lady is based on an Underwood No. 5 because they're awesome.

Figure Painting

2/2/09 - around 2-2.5 hours

So I took a bunch of pictures of my figure paintings from fall at the end of last semester with the intent of posting them up here. It's like anything else I'm still in formative stages with, something I thought might have been good when I did it is so quickly overshadowed by further development or simply stepping back from having just made it. As such I'm not sure if those old figure paintings will ever make it up on here.

Anyway, this is my best to date. there are a number of things that aren't terribly resolved, or resolved the way I'd like them to be, but it's probably the best I've done to date.

Godzilla in love

So, if you were several stories tall, what would you use to make a boquet?

Ink, scanned, colored digital, printed on bristol, cut, stacked, photographed, photoshopped. Oh boy.

Thumbs and Faces

I finally put the last drawing in my sketchbook from the summer. There's a clear dividing line when school starts up where the book gets a whole lot less interesting as it transitions over from faces and paintings to thumbnail after thumbnail. Oh well.

Here's what's worth looking at from it:

Almost the entire book is filled with these, pages and pages of drawings of people in Starbucks (though that last one has some Ringling students in there...). They started out sort of haphazardly arranged on the page, some fully body, some just faces, but as time went for some reason they just sort of arranged themselves into this sort of valley shape and i almost never drew much more than the face (aside from the occasional cactus or pickle body).

I've never been terribly good friends with acryllic, so I made a couple attempts to extend the olive branch... varying success. We have a very wonky portrait of one of my dads friends in green for whatever reason, an some old man I made up as I went along.

And that's that.
