First post of the new semester!

Well I haven't produced much this semester so far, but here's what I've done that's somewhat interesting. All this work is from a class called Digital Life taught by Cliff Nielsen. The class is basically a life painting class with a computer and wacom tablet. It's actually purdy fun!

This is week one - a still life. I'm a little rusty and a little slow... I haven't really painted a lot with Photoshop, but have enough experience to know my way around the program. For the class we can either use Corel Painter or Adobe Photoshop. I've been sticking with photoshop the whole time so far..for better or worse.

Week 2 was another still life and I didn't get any further than the previous week!

Week 4 (I don't know where I put my files for week 3) was good to me. This here was a 10 minute pose.

This was another 10 minute pose.

A 25 minute pose. It's kinda sad that given 2.5 times the length of the previous poses, I actually accomplished less!

Week 5

Week 5 again, hour long pose.

Week 6, 10 minute warm-up.

Week 6, I believe an hour long pose.

Week 6, a 1.5 hour-long pose. Prolly my best so far

Animal Maaaaaagic

Some of the 'final' paintings for a fun class called 'Animal Magic.' A sugar glider, sand tiger sharks, cow jumping over the moon, mountain lion, camel, dromedary camel, and bearded dragon were all animals that we saw first-hand and drew to later paint at home. It was a fantastic learning and drawing experience whether the animals came to us at school, or we went to them at the zoo, aquarium, and wildlife reserves. Here's some sketches from in class...
