Illustration Friday: Red

In high school we had to take those color-coded personality tests. (Turns out I was a pale bluish-green). Anyway, on the whole thing there was only question that I answered 'red' (representing assertive characteristics). Ever after, on the rare occasions when he managed to get me riled about something, my brother would tease me about my 'one little red' making an appearance. This one's for you, Paul.

This definitely has a few bugs, but I really love this technique.

Afro experiment

As usual, the colors are totally wacked (as in different than they were on the screen when I was working on it). Oh well. This is a really fun technique, starting in Illustrator and moving to Photoshop. I'd like to get more creative with it next time. Thanks for the help, Mr. Franson: I couldn't have done it without you. Literally.

Super Sloth

Like most things, this was a lot funnier in my head. Still, wouldn't a sloth make a great super hero? He could hang out in front of banks and other potential crime scenes and fight crime without leaving home. And they're so charismatic. Just look at their little grins. Anyway, I wanted to add another element like a cop car coming around the corner or at least a fire hydrant, but I ran out of time.

This is an experiment with vector art in Illustrator. Yikes! Still, the possibilities are exciting. . .

More Sketches

Just doodling. It has occurred to me that I'm a fan of 'untraditional beauty' i.e. angels with large noses and overbites.

This may not be the most brilliant composition ever, but I'm happy that I know how to do this kind of thing in Illustrator now. (We did this in digital illustration class today).

Historic Moment

This is my first blog--ever! Sadly, I am severely technologically-challenged (but determined to fight it). This is a drawing I did of myself late last night. I was feeling inspired to draw after looking at a book of my roommate's called Flight, a collection of short stories in the graphic novel style. It's pretty much awesome.
