"Animated" GIF!

More normal piece:

This is a futuristic electric-gasoline-hybrid motorcycle of my own design, with a dragon figure-head. Based roughly on the theme "Not Your Typical Dragon," and I incorporated a few elements from my previous "Viking Parasite" Toy Design.

Here are some snapshots of my process, particularly my research phase and creative phase:

Robotic Attack Panda!!!

This was for Joe's Class, and the assignment was to draw yourself as a 5-10 year old with your imaginary friend. I used traditional media up until the very last bit. Pens and tonal markers in the bottom picture, then touched up just a tad in the magical 4th dimension of Photoshop on the top picture.

I was tempted to add glowy lens-flare effects and specular highlights everywhere, but reluctantly decided against it... *sigh*

My earlier rendition of this assignment can be found HERE, with me riding a DINOSAUR.

Value Practice

I went into Photoshop to give my old Toy Design some more form and definition. And the other one is a crumpled-up piece of paper, which was to help develop a sensitivity to planar changes and basic value principles.

Charley Harper Emulation

Charley Harper was an artistic genius. He even has his own day (December 8, 2006) as proclaimed by the mayor of Cincinnati. His simplification and streamlining is incredibly hard to emulate, but I gave it my best shot. The theme of Joe's assignment this week was "Prehistoric Life," and I chose the awesome Deinonychus as my subject.

Researching dinosaurs for art reference was MUCH more enjoyable than researching parasites for my Toy Design assignment... *bleagh

Thanks for looking!
