modern rockwell

Alright so this was the sketch for my current assignment, which is to modernize one of Rockwell's illustration. There are a lot of things I like in this. Lights, city stuff, folding chairs.

If you haven't guessed, i'm not very handy with color. It just baffles me. I'm surprised I can even get dressed in the morning. I really envy people who just get it. Anyway, these are two of the four times I re-did this, because I was so frustrated. Grah. The bottom is the one i'm going with, because it's at least pretty clean. It would be really easy to just do this in black and white.. but it's good practice at least.

everything in between

This was where I was for the past week. It was a scary place.
Here are some things from my sketchbook project so far that I liked.
(This is all based on the random quote: "New teeth are added too, tired hearts are all repaired.")

Below is a drawing to illustrate the main ideas of Empedocles. More or less.

Sketch for my current project (based of rockwell's Let Nothing You Dismay).

Sketch for Sound! illustration

Final Sound! illustration

A better picture of the final for the Bacon Bloodshed article.

And a close up for good measure.

And here is Sinae, who is really good at walking, (and animation.) Walk cycles are fun* because once you're done you sometimes realize you've left out three drawings and given the character an unusual limp.

Anyway, I hope you have all made it through your week triumphant.
*the opposite of fun

This took forever (crammed into saturday). Partly because it took forever to decide on what emotion I wanted to start with. The timing is still a bit off. I like it though.

I also finally have a favorite color. (Yes that is my awesome cake eraser.)
Now if I can just respond to Phaedo and study m Mesopotamia to Egypt i'll be good to go for the born ruffians concert at the ottobar tomorrow night! Can't believe I actually pulled this off. I'll put up my illustration work a little later tonight probably.
