Board Bunnies!

This is the result of tutoring Amanda today :) :) :) I'm helping her make characters for her skate/snow/surf company she's making for class. SUPERRRRRRRR SUPER FUN!!! ANDDDDD I'm getting paid! WOOHOO!~ :D was I ever scared of using Sharpie for drawing? IT'S AMAZING! <3 I like the roughs so much more than the cleanups -__- Sigh.

Mitch & Macie

I have class today and naturally am freaking out because some turnarounds and expressions sheets are due... thank goodness I managed to pull this one out of my ass this morning. Still got a long way to go though before 7:30 tonight. Hopefully I can squeeze some stuff in while I'm at work SIGHHHH.

UPDATE: I MADE IT FOR CLASS (At the very last minute...) :D Added the little girl (just named her Macie) in here too...since this was all one assignment. Macie was more rushed, since I was scribbling her down at like 5:30 after work and I thought I'd be late. Thank goodness I finished :) It was a very heavy critique day, so I'm glad I was able to get my stuff up on time so Shiyoon could provide some great feedback. I really love these characters, so even though the assignment is over I'm gonna keep working with them. These 2 are siblings... and along with their parents, they definitely fit under the assignment title of a "dysfunctional family". I'm really thankful that my character design class really forced me to explore so many different character variations and personalities. All my previous anxiety and frustration trying to come up with something original really paid off in the end, and taught me a lot about what it takes to be a real character designer. I still have a long way to go with these guys, but at least I've got their personalities and looks tied down. Definitely don't want all this work to go to waste. Already got 2 projects in mind :D EXCITED!!!~

Intro To Character Design Week 5 Homework! (ALREADY?!)

Wow it's already 5th week of my Intro to Character Design class... can't believe it! I feel like I've been learning a lot, but I haven't really been applying it well enough, until NOW! YAY! :D I've been really depressed and frustrated lately because everything I've tried doing has been utter crap. With these drawings though I feel like maybe I'm finally coming out of my super long slump. HOPEFULLY! Maybe I just really love this character (because I do!) :) This is still for my dysfunctional family homework. She wants to be a magician.

Let's go back to 2009 now, shall we? :)

Today I took a nostalgia trip back to my Winter 2009 Interactivity class...the class I was most scared of ever in college. Now, I'm no programmer, and I'm not proud of much, but I think what I managed to pull outta the air for this class was pretty good. And even if it's not that good, it sure is fun to look back at. :) So I thought I'd share! If not for you, then for the future~ You're welcome to interact with these projects :D Especially the alphabet book! If they don't work... sorry :\

Click here to play! :) My favorite one :D

This was my choose your own adventure game I made. Our teacher gave us a bunch of these scientific images and we had to make a game out of them. So naturally... I turned my amoebas into heroes. :)
Click here to play!

This was my final project, StarStar Phone Home. It actually doesn't work too I never really finished my final :\ But at least my teacher said I had good graphics! :D Check it out :) At least for its cuteness

And here are all my projects for the class :)

This Type of E-Book is the Way of the Future!

Of course it would be someone from Pixar doing this. Amazing.

The Uncrappiest of the Crap

So I finally feel like my character design class is sinking in a bit. The lecture this week was greatttt :D I really learned a lot from seeing Shiyoon's process and watching his demos. I realized that I care too much about messing up my sketchbooks, so now I don't use them anymore...just loose paper like people have told me to do in the past. I should've done that earlier... I'm way less worried about what my doodles will look like. :) And I draw WAYYY more.

But anyway, after like over 50 pages of crap, I decided I've already reached my goal of drawing everyday. I think I've gotten into a good habit, which makes me super happy! Never thought it was possible! :D But yeah, I'm so not posting everything I draw anymore, like I have before... it would be too much. Instead, these are the best of the worst. :)

I think I'm starting to notice a change, or maybe I'm imagining it. -__-

Ariel is TOO Pretty

I shouldn't even post my studies really, but I liked this one a lot. :) I think Ariel is the prettiest princess, along with Rapunzel. It's gotta be that red hair and those curves~ Damn you Glen Keane!

Green sharpie for a green mermaid :) I'm starting to get really used to Sharpie. LOVE!
