A Charly Harper Emulation

This is an emulation assignment based on the work of Charly Harper. If you haven't heard of him, you should check out his work. He does very very simplified interpretations of animals almost to the point that they would fall apart as random shapes if he pushed it any further. He is amazing in the way he is able to keep it all together, though, and still make his designs readable, almost from first glance. Mine is a viper fish, slightly combined with some attributes of a lantern/angler fish. Our assignment was Deep Sea.

Check out some of Charly's stuff here:

Monster In Your Closet

An assignment in my animation class to make a designer toy design with a "monster in my closet" theme. Based on feedback from friends on facebook I decided a centipede snake-like guy would be a good choice for creepy/scary. Sorry Adam it isn't female!

Sketchbook Update

I've really been enjoying learning to simplify my drawings into basic shapes in my drawing for animation class. We've been talking about line and shape mostly. It's amazing how the simpler you go, the better things can look.

Hey, it's been a while. I got slammed by that thing called figuring out your school schedule. Here is a cover I made for a book that a cooworker is writing. For January we will call it "Ink and Marker Mayhem Month!!!" I'm in a drawing for animators class and we will be making a lot of finished ink works with marker shading. I hope to create some sweet things this semester.
