...and the legend was born in the wild land.

This was the final theme for our final project in my drawing for animation class. I'm definitely seeing a style come out of me that is pretty recognizable. I want to start exploring different styles, approaches and techniques. Anyway, I won't say what this picture is about, I'm curious to hear what you see. So give me some feedback ya'll.

Art All Around Us

When you are bored do/did you ever look at paint patterns on the ceiling or anywhere else and see faces, creatures and characters in them? I sure do. Back home our ceiling had the coolest most random splotches and designs and I memorized where certain characters were. I could probably still point them out now if I wanted to. Unfortunately, I just barely noticed little creatures in the tile of our bathrooms in our apartment that we are moving out of in a few days!!! I thought i'd share some with you. I think the best art is the kind inspired from life and the world around you.

There are thousands of these little guys. I ended up taking a picture of my bathroom
in hopes of saving them all before I have to leave.  What do you see?

Can you find the Donkey Hornet!!!

I guess you could call this a caricature taken to the whole character rather than just the head.

There are still some changes I'm going to make, and I need to add
texture to his coat, and he needs a THUMB!! wow. Didn't notice that
until yesterday. :)

Figure DrawRings

So I'm starting to put my portfolio together for the animation application. Figure drawing is a big emphasis that they focus on. I've taken two figure drawing classes so far and try to go to as many open sessions as possible. Recently, since I'm only in a drawing for animation class, I have been sitting in on random figure drawing classes throughout the week. These are probably the best ones so far. I feel like I still have a long way to go.

The more I look at this one, the more it feels like the head was
just pasted on there. Ah!

Gesture drawings!
