This was my first assignment for Eros, but it wasn't until the midterm that I got the colors on it. It's half-toned, as well; I liked the comicky aspect that would have. I think the hardest part was not letting the bg get too drab, and keeping her brighter. Also not making her look like a postal worker or an inmate.

Received my midterm crit over this piece, uploading the new colors now instead!
I should be doing other work, but I was too pleased with this and too sad I hadn't updated my blog in a while. I still have more Economos sketches, too, so those'll have to come up later.

I've been organizing my portfolio for study abroad and went back to touch this up. This was an assignment for Brian Ralph's character design class. I had fun drawing her.
I promise I'll get some current things up soon, when I make them!

It's looking like another busy semester.
MON: Illustration Concepts 1 with Jose
TUE: Critical Studies
WED: Eros with Jose; Independent Study [Illustration 2] with Daniel Krall; Screenwriting Workshop
FRI: Life Drawing with Economous
18 credits? Am I a complete and utter fool or what?
Anyway, I was uploading things for my portfolio and stumbled across this. I was never that keen on screenprinting, and the scan kills the colors here a bit, but c'est la vie, yeah?

You knew I was going to try and paint Gackt sooner or later. I think I'm getting a little better at this.
Speaking of Gackt, July 4 was his birthday. Happy birthday, Gackt, and happy 10-year anniversary as a solo artist! May the years bring more of your music and your spirit.
What I want to do is try adding some linework to it, but I think I better save that for a new image. Even though this IS just a sketch, I like it and want to leave it alone. Truth be told, I've been tempted to add lines to EACH sketch I've made, even two failures I haven't bothered to post (but I probably will if for no other reason than archival).
I also want to start doing some images from my head, but for now I need to hold off on that urge and keep to the reference. I don't think I'm good enough for the former yet.

Otherwise known as Ichikawa Kamejiro from NHK's 2007 taiga drama Fuurin Kazan.
...Wait, were you expecting Gackt?
Don't worry, I'll be painting him soon enough! But I draw him constantly in my sketchbook, to the point where it's almost a bad habit. XD
Found this photo off my LJ friend-list (and going to leave it anon in case she wants it that way XD;). Wanted to try some more watercolor. It looks alright in person, but really funky scanned in. Definitely overworked it, will have to be careful not to next time.
I've always sucked with watercolor and I've always wanted to fix that. I don't think this is so bad -- the portrait itself at least, the bg color looks nicer in person and the bottom I was just playing around.
On another note, Moleskine watercolor notebooks are nice.
The subject is Romanian actress, stunt performer, and singer Maria-Antoaneta Tudor. Isn't she pretty? Google her, she has a website -- she's very talented and works very hard.
