Jungle Books Characters

Here is my interpretation of the Jungle Book Characters.  This was for my Creature Design Class With Joe Weatherly.   It was a great class with a cool instructor.  Also it gave me the opportunity to try new drawing and coloring techniques. Enjoy these pics from my animation desk!

Elephant Creature

Heres my newest piece from the Creature design.  I wanted to add more of a story to it than just a creature in space.  So here it is. I drew it out in pencil then went in with a watercolor pen.  After that I went in with the pencil again to give it a bit more volume.  
Let me know what you think!
I love purple!

Oh an I just posted some new animation to my animation BLOG!!

A little late but - Costume Carnival!!

So every Halloween The academy of art has a costume Carnival.  They have about 10 models there on rotation with about 4 or 5 stages all set with scary props and cool lighting for people to paint and draw.   I was only able to go for about an hour but here a a few drawings i did. Sorry it took so long for me to post them.

So I was doing a homework assignment and had a piece of hot press paper left over. What does one artist do with extra paper scraps..... throw it away you say.... I think NOT!

So while doing Laundry at Joey's (Laudramat/ internetcafe/icecream shop/ and sausage seller)
I drew these little guys.

Then I added a touch of watercolor and inked them. Shablazm!!

Heads - -

Man I have been super busy with a couple of projects lately and cant wait to tell you about them.  But that will have to wait.  Check this out though! 

Just heads drawn while on the bus.  Super fast but fun! I was mainly playing with shapes.  It took me about an hour to do these on the bumpy ride to the Monterey Bay aquarium.  

Uh... these arent the real colors... blogger has been uploading photos with strange errors lately!
