Tainted Love (doodles and more doodles)

I have to go write an essay and draw a bunch of character sheets. So here, have some doodles to entertain yourselves!

My original attempts to emulate Chris Sanders' style. (You can find the final piece here.)

Photoshop sketch. I like top hats.

Every Morning (eyerape, a character, and a doodle)

I have absolutely no explanation for this. Sorry about your eyes.

This is Graeme O'Connell. He's a werewolf. Also, a cowboy.

Like it says.

Mr. Monotony (an experiment, and a wip)

Question - can I paint landscapes out of my head?
Answer - no. Not at all. Noah Bradley I am not.

So in the category of things I need to practice? THIS.

And here, have a work in progress with subject matter than I can actually kind of do something with.

Semi-Charmed Life (a present, a grump, and fanart)

Oh, what a random post. The pug (or pig-pug, as we've been calling it) was a present for my friend Carrie's birthday. The grumpy lizard-thing is fairly self-explanatory. The third piece is Supernatural fanart, of Jared Padalecki as Lucifer. Or Samifer, as it were.

Liar (doodle, fanart, and imitating Chris Sanders)

Now is time for that oft-mentioned but little seen wonder, personal art! In the form of a doodle, Discworld fanart, and another Design-A-Character challenge on deviantART.

Freedom! (a bunny and some ravens)

It is FINALLY Spring Break. You know what this means? No, not beaches. Not parties. It means YAY I GET TO DRAW WHAT I WANT TO FOR A WEEK

That said, here. Have some schoolwork.

Character design for a sequential imaging exercise (and the exercise itself). The story had to include a bunny, a brain, and a pencil.

And this is a book cover design for Imagery for Sci-fi and Fantasy. My book of choice was American Gods, because I'm a Gaiman fangirl like that.

Die Hard! (random things)

This is kind of a bizarre mix of things. An amalgam, if you will. And that's all I have to say! (Back to homework. Midterms are next week.)

Leader of the Pack (adventures in lithography!)

This semester, I'm taking an elective in the Painting & Printmaking department. Appropriately, the class is Printmaking. (Surprise surprise.) The first five weeks were dedicated to lithography. Let me show you why I am not a printmaking major.

First, my plate itself. (These are aluminum, and 18x24 inches, if I remember correctly.) Notice the scrunched anatomy that happened when I realized she wasn't going to fit? Yeah.

For those who are really curious, the drawing on the plate was done in litho crayon (the fine lines) and tusche. The tusche did not agree with me. Or perhaps it's better to say that I didn't agree with it. Or maybe I just fail at applying etching strengths. It's a mystery that will never be solved.

Next, we have one of my proofs (newsprint), and one of my editions (some nice paper, I don't recall what).

And my digital piece, based on the same sketch. Yes, I know you've seen it before. Bear with me, it's here for comparison's sake.

Growing Up (self-portrait and fanart)

Feeling sick and remarkably inactive today, but I did manage to accomplish a few things over the weekend! Specifically, a self-portrait and a mermaid. (A perfect combination, if I do say so myself.)
