Here's those pre-school images that I was talking about...

Skull and Clavicle

Title:  Skull and Clavicle
Date: January 30, 2013
Medium: Photoshop

Notes:  I was kind of going for that 'x-ray' look. I wanted to try using a bit of blue this time, and make it look more like a negative. Of course, this is just a quick study...


Title:  Hood
Date: January 30, 2013
Medium: Photoshop

Notes:  Take the name for what you will... It could mean something akin to 'hoodwinked' or perhaps it's all about the allure and mystery of just a hood? Who knows... but this one was a quick stab at trying cloth and the lower-side profile.

I think every Wednesday during this semester, I'm going to try my best to do a morning speed-paint. Today's subject, which it should always be... was birds. Here's a golden eagle (I still need to get a ton better with my color picking).

Notes:  Wednesday Speedpaint! I want to do one of these every Wednesday! Before I head into illustration it is a good idea to do a paint, since of course this is my painting illustration class.

Repo! The Genetic Opera - Shiloh

Title:  Repo! The Genetic Opera - Shiloh
Date: January 1 - 2, 2013
Medium: Photoshop
Scale: 14" x 9.25"

Notes:  I wanted to start out the New Year with something strong. So this is pretty much starting the culmination of everything I've been learning so far in school. I'd like to say the main thing that I learned is patience when it comes to art. This piece still has a boat-load of work left on it, but it's actually a really fun process, not to mention the good learning curve on this piece.
If you haven't seen the movie Repo! The Genetic Opera, I highly suggest a watch!
