No City Like This In The World

[WIP 2014-04-01] Premise is this guy is visiting a city on the moon and he geeks out about it.

Professor says it’s too exaggerated for the dialogue. Need to dial it back. But I thought it wasn’t half bad, otherwise.

Battle at Lantern City

[2014-03-18] Culmination of “Crew of You” project. Assignment is to illustrate a scene of tension with some or all of the characters you designed for the project, and place them in the set you designed.

Modeled everything in Maya for better reference. I lit the scene, but rendering took about an hour, so I ended up just taking screenshots for perspective and pose purposes. The painting was good photoshop practice, though I’m still more of a traditional artist when it comes to illustrating.

Tetra
[2014-02-27] My final piece for Press Start, a Nintendo charity gallery auction. I lost my previous rendition of Tetra and had to redo it. This one’s done with watercolors and metallic spray paint. 
The gallery opening reception is going to be on April 25th, from 7pm to 9pm, and will stay open for a month. Our website will be up on April 18th. Bidding for artwork will begin April 25th. All proceeds from the gallery will go to the Morgan Center, a center in San Jose for autism.
I will post more information on the gallery as we get closer to the gallery opening. Check it out if you can!

Crew of You - Character Designs

[2014-02-20] Characters from the Crew of You project I designed the Lantern City for. General plot is a mother takes her two children on the run from Reapers who are after her and her son’s life. As you can see, I am the most creative person with names. Check the captions for short character descriptions. Captions may not work on the dashboard, so you might have to actually click through to my post.

Lantern City Set Design 

[2014-03-06] Set mock-up for conceptual illustration class. Construction paper, paint, marker, and Christmas lights in a cardboard box. Oh and one window is actually cut out and ‘glass’ set with tracing paper. It doesn’t really add to the lighting, since my construction paper is so thin, so I didn’t cut out more windows.

I have characters invented for this, but I’m kinda nervous about posting OCs. >____>

Chinese Calligraphy
[2014-02-18] “Generations” project for my Conceptual Illustration class. We did 6 different ‘bits’ of artwork and put them together as a single piece. My topic was Chinese calligraphy scripts. The top left red envelope is ‘found’ bit, so it’s not actually something I drew/made.
