Now that I’m a semi-jobless college grad with time on my hands (sort of), I can actually take a little time off from my numerous to-do lists and draw for fun! Whoo! With none of that “I should be working on homework instead” guilt!* So expect a lot more frequent posting, both here and at horizon-bound :D
Anywho, Anna Torv is my dream-casting for Sue Storm - I would be ecstatic if for the remake Fox cast her and brought back Ioan Gruffudd as Reed (and gave the actors a decent script and story to work with, *cough*.) That’s never gonna happen, though, but I can at least have fun drawing it.
*Sort of. I’m taking some online art courses this summer so I’ve got homework for those, but good homework. Not the kind that makes me want to set fire to my textbooks.
The only emperor is the emperor of ice-cream.
My fifth and final senior show piece, and probably my favorite - a piece three years in the making (kind of.) Based on a doodle I did spring of freshman year during my American Lit class, which I initially scribbled whilst we discussed Wallace Stevens’ “The Emperor of Ice Cream.” I’d been meaning to do a full illustration ever since, and the show seemed like the perfect opportunity.
Print is available in my Society6 shop, and that free shipping promotion is still going on till midnight PST tonight!
Last senior show piece!
Fourth piece - a collage of my favorite sketches (since sketching is primarily what I do) from over the last four years. It was quite the trip down memory lane putting this together!
At the show reception last night my sister spotted a couple of girls having fun searching for all the different Doctors in here - makes me want to draw even more :D (That and the fact that I’ve actually been enjoying the new episodes quite a bit!)
Collage-styled illustration for one of my classes last (fall) semester - loved working on it, but it took flippin’ forever. I think I went through a couple seasons of Arrested Development while I worked O.o
Print is available here! :D
Reblarging from my other blog again to let people know I’ve got another print available!
Today’s senior show piece is a familiar one - a rare piece from about a year and a half ago that I actually still like. And a reminder about the free shipping via this link in my Society6 shop until midnight PST April 14th!
Another senior show piece! A bit of concept art for a future comic - a sort of follow up to this piece from last fall.
One of my pieces from my class’s senior show, and also part of my ongoing project in my advanced digital studio course - character designs for a hypothetical animated film (or perhaps tv show.) I sadly haven’t really had a chance to start nailing down any sort of concrete plot due to juggling projects for all of my other courses (seriously, double majoring and gen eds are a pain. Hopefully worth it in the end, but a pain nonetheless.) If I do manage to work out a plot I like, I may eventually try to adapt it into a comic. We’ll see!
Prints are available in my Society6 shop! (<-there is a free shipping promo through this link through the 14th)
I’m going to be reblogging my senior show pieces over the next few days to liven this place up a bit. Can’t wait to get back to working on some fanart once graduation is done and over - I’ve been aching to draw oodles of it but right now the time needed is nonexistent :(
Been in a headlong dash for the last week trying to put stuff together for my senior show (reeeeally excited with how things are turning out, but deadlines loom! Ack!), but I decided to take a few minutes to throw some color under a Mike doodle I did a few months back. Love this show so much, and still furious that Disney canceled it. Argh.
I feel bad for pretty much falling off the face of tumblr, but senior year’ll do that to a person D: My days are pretty much spent in a constant state of panic over homework, work, job hunting, senior projects, pointless papers, and everything else under the sun. I keep wanting to kick back and relax for a bit and work on a bit of art purely for the fun of it, but it’s just not happening right now :(
But in the meantime, here’s a peek at a piece that’s been sitting in my WIP folder since October… maybe I’ll steal a few hours from schoolwork over spring break to finish it up.
Anonymous asked: What medium do you usually use for your art? You're amazing!
d’aww, thank you for the kind words! <3
As for what medium I usually use, it really depends on the look I’m going for and/or what I’m in the mood for working with! The bulk of my work tends to be digital, so Photoshop is my number one go-to, though I’ll often sketch in Sketchbook Pro and ink in Manga Studio (using either my Wacom Intuos 4 tablet, or my old but hardy little Graphire 4.) When I work traditionally I usually work with pens, brush-and-ink, watercolors, watercolor pencils, markers, and/or colored pencils (I tend to mix mediums a lot to get whatever look I’m going for… if I even know what it is! I tend to wing it a lot.) I’m not terribly fussy when it comes to brands as I like to experiment with whatever I can get my hands on, but I am rather partial to Prismacolor, and Derwent’s different variations of watercolor pencils are quite wonderful :)
Been sorting through my WIP folder so it’s not quite such a mess come 2013, and I stumbled across some little Avengers portraits I started and forgot about last summer. I’m not going to finish them (too many other things to do!), but I thought I’d toss up what I had sketched so far.
