More illustrations!

I really can't seem to get into this blog thing.... >w<;;; But I'm going to try real hard and work on my thesis here!! Or something... • w •  I really want to get into this social networking phenomenon that is the internet, but I seem to be a huge lurker~

Either way, have some illustrations from illustration class! Yay! 

Check out the assignment in which I had to do a portrait of a famous person:

And my movie poster:

And then something not humorous (unless you imagine the guy going 'woah, slow down lady!')

Kyub's Language

So I've been doing a tegaki roleplaying comic, with a simple premise- two strangers overcome a language barrier in order to meet survival needs. But of course my friend and I love fantasy, so these strangers are a warrior who has accidentally travelled to another world and knows nothing of it, and a native of that world who knows of all the dangers and needs protection. I'm having much fun playing the stranger- since I found a fun way to present in his alien language. He finds the nearly drowned warrior washed ashore, and attempts to communicate with her. 

My character, Kyub, (his siblings are Poynt, Lyne, and Skware :P ) speaks with symbols in order for the reader to get a sense of what he is saying, but allows them to fill in the gaps. I find symbols rather fun since the warrior can't parse the visual nature of his speech bubble anymore than she can the sound, which is also left to our imaginations. I have constructed letters to fill the symbols in order to give his language a sense of structure, but this is of course superficial. For now I'll have to figure what other simple symbols will be useful for him.

Illest of Ill stickers

So I got around to designing some Illest of Ill stickers for the event at our school. I was summoned to the computer labs the other night to find quite a scramble- the room was full of students designing stickers! Stickers, I tell you, stickers! They're powerful little things. Sticky little things that are right you left them, smiling at you... and everyone wanted their art on a sticker, I guess! I did too, and here's two of what I submitted... Ideally they'll be tangible soon

So, I love painting on tegaki. It's not a very prolific website, it's typically more of a place for fangirls to draw their favorite anime, or roleplay in comic format (super dorky, eh?) .... But for me, the paint program is appealingly simple. It's like MS Paint but now there's 10 opacity options! oh boy! I feel I think differently with this program... I'd like to take that mode of thinking into photoshop, somehow.

More Mothy Dragonness

Sometimes painting every day can be a little tough- I suppose I get out of bed on the wrong foot, or something- But I don't see how I can't make it a part of my life every day. I ponder how I visually experience everything, I read shapes and colors and relationships and must recreate them, realize them and understand them- and then moth dragons come out of my head. •__•

Beep Beep!

Illustration class WIP! The assignment is 'cars' :> I think I need to play the havoc down a little bit, this is more or less supposed to resemble when children play with toy cars... but typically their playgrounds are not on fire XD;

Looks like I ended up drawing a character that's been floating around in my head lately? She might be a thesis idea... >.> Her name is Elle, and she has an adventure(!) to embark upon!

I've been aiming to do more color studies lately. And posting more lately.
So here's a combo! I should really upload some more work sometime. I think I may actually blab about characters sometime, like specific ones. Ought to be fun to figure those out here. :>

Mr. Popper's Penguins

Penguins completed! My teacher stole the background from this piece... he thinks it's better with the penguins getting lost in the light background at places? I'm going to trust him on this one, I like it, but I think it could... well I didn't design it with the notion of a white background, ya know? But now I'm tempted to play with being a bit more gestalt...? I believe that's the term X3;

Fossilized Love!

Imma blogger!

Life's been pretty weird/busy/not at all technical.
I'm overloading this semester with an extra liberal arts class, which doesn't seem like much, except of course I picked a few hefty liberal arts classes... but learning about china and consuming tons of literature is rather fun! Either way, I'm still drawing! :o
This pic is old but I enjoy it, especially since it came from a certain dorky sketchblog site...
I'm gonna make myself post an image every time I'm here! :< or something... perhaps it'll make me more blitzed about this blog. I unno. :P
Good luck to you all, I suppose. :3
