Screen Cap #3 Indiana Jones

Wow well I had it way off! This time I did not over lap to make sure everything was positioned correctly. I did my best with measuring and laying it in. Hm I definitely learned a lot with this one, my friend Jonathan Chu helped me get a process going to make the most out of this and use all my abilities. This just got way more difficult but way more fun! I might just have to redo this one looking at them side by side and from farther away, I might have to change my approach as well!

BTW This might be my last screen cap for the next few days because I am bringing my computer into the apple store to get fixed. But I am working on a story to start storyboarding for fun and I will be doing storyboarding exercises with my old professor and good friend Jeff Jackson! I will be posting those up and my progress!

Screen Cap #2 Django Unchained

Screen Cap provided by this site

This is my second screen cap and I took advice from those who provided it, I used a hard brush and just went with value... kinda? it was still pretty difficult I noticed I took a long time in the composition stage. I just wanted everything to be in the right place cause again theres reason for it being there. I tried putting only the big values and tried not to put a lot of color cause I couldn't help it. for my next one I will probably just do black and white. Maybe keep the reference in color as well! maybe.. suggestions? Anyway I am learning a lot from this especially just digital painting and getting the hang of it. Choosing which drawing to do takes me FOREVER, I either get distracted by all the scenes or just cant find one I like. I try studying them too which takes for ever cause I find a lot of things in other movies or other stills that are interesting to me. Till next time!

Screen Cap #1 Skyfall

Screen Cap provided by this site

So this is my first Screen cap Photoshop drawing. I have never done this before and I am really doing this to improve my digital drawing skills, composition skills, and managing my skills. I will be doing this over the summer and will post every single one to show my progress! It will improve and there is already a lot I learned from this painting alone! Check out my other friends doing this Danielle Case and my inspiration/mentor for starting this Jonathan Chu! This will be a fun summer and this was really fun to do! Any criticism I will gladly take and again I'm not the best with photoshop and this was my first time doing it. I kinda just jumped into without really knowing what to do hahaha! Till next time!!

Ani 113b Hero Tree Assignment

This is my Hero Tree for my class Ani-113b (intermediate project, weird class name I know). This was done in Photoshop CS5 and the project was to create a tree in a forest environment. Mine is really more of a stump than a tree but its a dying stump that is breathing new life amongst trees that are growing. That was the general idea I had. The next step for the assignment is to take this and do the painting in acrylic! I can't wait to see it finished! 

B&W Comp

This is the color palette I am aiming for there still need to be tweaks and more cools in the shadows but these are the general colors I am aiming to do! 

I hope you enjoy and I will be working on the final acrylic painting from here and I can't wait to post the finished piece! Till next time!

Pastels are Awesome!

So this is my first Pastel piece.... Obviously I need more work I just wanted to see what I could do and I just gotta keep doing it!! The Mid-Program Portfolio has been turned in and I feel really confident about it! I've always loved pastel and I just want to get better at it so hopefully I can get more practice and of course critiques are always welcomed. 

This is it! The Final Pass!

This is it my Spring 2013 Portfolio submission! I would really like to thank Rachel Roubicek, Caitlin Dudley, Lancing Chen, All my A/I friends, all my friends, and my family for pushing me and helping me and just being there for me I could not have done it with out any of your guys help and encouragement. I've only gotten stronger and I will continue to get stronger and someday produce more amazing things on the big screen! Wish me Luck!!
