Breaks are waayyy too fast

Man, that break came and went soooo fast. It feels like it wasn't even really a break from school at all, more like an extra weekend.

Awesomely enough, that video was done by Todd McFarlane! So that probably helps in the awesome-factor of that video!

This week, Artist of the Week! goes to: Loish from
This girl has some seriously awesome style! Not to mention her volume of work really speaks for itself. Just look at her watercolor type painting, she somehow does all this in photoshop. Overall her work is just really entertaining and expressive. And then if you get a chance, check out her animations, specifically the Open Question Terror.
I wish I had more to say this update really... just been working a little less than normal during the break. But regardless, I have some updates:
The haunted house for MCA is this weekend, so make sure you check that out!
Class has been going pretty well, working day in, day out... got a big chunk of my animation done for this next project. I'll have to post that for sure when it's done.

Anyway, here's that art (mostly WIPs this week unfortunately):

Portrait Series: Edgar Allan Poe

Title: Portrait Series: Edgar Allan Poe
Date: October 21, 2011
Medium: Graphite / Conte
Scale: 8.5" x 11" Gunmetal Grey Card-Stock

Notes: I have plans to actually do one of these for a bunch of different authors to get a cool series of portraits going! I think there will be eight in total. This is also trying to go one step further in the graphite / chalk / conte direction.

WIP: Tesla Coil 

Title: WIP: Tesla Coil
Date: October 22, 2011
Medium: Photoshop
Scale: 1000px x 1000px

Notes: A work in progress for the character of the week on Unfortunately, it passed, but I still want to finish this idea. It wasn't going to fit in the brief anyway, because the brief stated it that it had to be ultra-realistic and something that could actually happen.

My thoughts were this:
Nikolai Tesla, through all his testing, has decided that he needed to make a practical addition to the military. So, through thorough testing, he decided to apply his Tesla coil and the thought of electrical power towards making an undead army to contribute to state defense. What better way than to test two things with one test. Apply the Tesla coil to a cadaver, and hopefully (with luck) the electrical pulse will re-power the cadaver to create an infinite amount of soldiers. This was his experiment...

Underpaint: Rivet

Title: Underpaint: Rivet
Date: October 22, 2011
Medium: Photoshop
Scale: 1000px x 1000px

Notes: Trying to learn how to under-paint in grey-scale...

There you have it... more soon!
