Okay, so... I've been away for a bit.
I suddenly had to move, and I still haven't found everything art related. That would explain the lack of updates for the schedule.
I've been drawing with ink and graphite in the 'ole sketchbook, but I only just now got internet hooked up on the computer.

It's a small update for now, but I'll have to play catch-up later.

Here's what I got:

Pirate Attitude

Title:  Pirate Attitude
Date: May 22, 2012
Medium: Ink / Ink Wash
Scale: 9" x 12"

Notes: A contest entry for a deviantart group. Subsequently I used this also as my anatomy study in ink. For that Tuesday day.

Finally done with school for FOUR MONTHS! Ugh, what am I going to do with myself...

Well, here's the wrap up of animation:

Cora's Day

Title: Cora's Day
Date: May 7, 2012

Notes: Here is the rough version of the animatic that we submitted for finals.

First of Many Anatomy Studies

Title:  First of Many Anatomy Studies
Date: May 5, 2012
Medium: Graphite
Scale: 9" x 12"

Notes: The first anatomy study to celebrate the summer with!

Well, there will be MUCH MUCH MUCH x 10 more to come this summer. I have a ton of stuff to get onto, but for now, WE DRINK!

oh, and bonus points if you know what game I'm quoting in the title of this post...

Here is my color final all laid out together.

Four Seasons

Title:  Four Seasons
Date: May 1 - 3, 2012
Medium: Gouache on Bristol Board
Scale: Each piece is 6" x 9"

Notes: The requirement for this project was to use the four seasons as a base and then make compositions related to them. I hope that I wasn't too literal, but we'll see how it goes once I sit down and get critiqued.
