It took me awhile but I finally got this video up. I made this video for my Media Exploration class. We were given a letter and we had to make a character and animation from it. I got a little carried away but I am happy with how this turned out.

I finally got my project back the other day. I should have taken a picture before I submitted the project but you know how it goes.
I suppose I should explain this guy a bit. I based this character on Rasputin. He is a Staret associated with the Russian Orthodox Church. Starets are mystics with powers given to them from the Holy Ghost. They can heal the sick, predict the future and act as spiritual leaders. They are not directly appointed by the Church but are recognized by believers. I thought that an individual with this sort power would most likely become corrupt, therefor this is a dark Staret.

Sketchbook paintings! This was a three week project. We were to take mundane daily activities from our lives and sketch/paint them (maybe, I'll post them later). The second part of the project was to take three of these sketches and make them exciting and interesting. The first painting is of me having a profound religious experience from coffee in the morning. The second is of me walking home after school and being stalked by ninjas. The last one is of me drifting off to sleep in space with my feet sticking out of my space suit.

Here is a morph project that I recently got back from my teacher. We were to morph a classmate into something that fits with their personality. Here I morphed Sarah into a mad scientist. She is into jewelery design and enjoys the aspects behind it. I found connections between that and mad scientists...well that is what I said in the crit. I kind of just wanted to draw a mad scientist. Shhhh!
This should have been posted a month ago but better late than never...I don't think my teachers would agree with that statement. Anyways here are three drawings that I made. I was to depict certain moods using tone and expression. The first is done with conte and the last two with charcoal.

These are some of the sketchbook paintings that I scanned into my computer and played with in Photoshop. I basically just used some watercolor brushes that I found. Also, the images are squished a bit because I originally wanted to animate them. Pixel aspect ratio bla bla bla.

These are some self portraits that I did for class. They are all distorted in one way or another. Just messing around with everything I have in my tool box. I really like the first one. I seen to enjoy working with ink and watercolor. Booyaka!!
