Paper Christmas

A quick paper sculpture I did to help decorate the house for Christmas. One of my favorite scenes ever, puppy napping by the fireplace with stockings hung and the tree up. I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas.

Freelance Project

I have been working on a small freelance project recently. This design will grace the front of a children's t-shirt. Blogger has dulled the colors a little, but that shouldn't stop you from enjoying the image.

Short Animation Tests

Two quick animation tests of geese. I missed traditional animation, I'm a bit rusty. Click to make 'em move.

Stop Motion Set

I'm working on a new stop motion paper animation. This is the current progress on my stage. I'm cutting out the characters  now and shooting next week.
I will take a more professional picture, but for right now, a snap-shot from my cell phone.

ZBrush Toy

A toy creation I thought up and created in zbrush. I was even able to paint it this time! He is intended to be a secondary toy, created to go along with a figure who rides on its saddle.

My favorite part, the mask;

Fall Puppy

The weather here has cooled down considerably, and it's really starting to feel like fall. I was inspired to do a quick paper sculpture of a friend's adorable puppy during fall time. I used it as a quick motion test for a stop motion I am working on.
Anyway, here's the sketch, process shot, and final. Enjoy!

Birdy Love (and Twitter!)

I have officially joined the twitter community. I pretty much only talk about artwork and process work for what I'm working on. SO if you are interested in that, go ahead and click the button below and start following me, I'd appreciate it!!

Now, onto the artwork. I'm into drawing birds lately. So, to turn that into something worthwhile, I have created two greeting cards. I'm very happy with the way they have turned out, and the hard copies have a tasteful amount of glitter on them. :]
Blogger has dulled colors slightly.

Prop Sheet

A prop sheet created for my Irish Wolfhound character.
From left to right: blanket for bed, copper pot used for water, old metal tin for food, straw filled pillow for bed, bagpipe used to wake his master in the morning, and ladle for refilling water.
Blogger dulled the colors again.

ZBrush Goat!

Here's a goat character I've been working on in zbrush. This particular goat can be quite cranky and tends to get into fights as seen by his current pose, missing horn and torn up ear.
ZBrush can be quite frustrating, but still very fun to work with.

New Character

Hey guys, here's a new character I've been working on in my "Advanced Character, Environment, and Prop Design" independent study class. His name is Fillin (which means "Little Wolf" in Gaelic) and he's an Irish Wolfhound who just wants a friend.
Unfortunately blogger dulls certain colors, this seems to be the case for this piece.
Anyway, many more concept pieces to come!

New iPhone Case

Hey everyone,
just a quick update! I made a new iPhone 4 case for myself. I wanted it to match my blog and my business cards. Plus, I think it looks really cool. I really enjoy making these cases, hopefully I can make some more in my free time.

This is a quick little design I threw together for a friend in Illustrator. Just a break from school work to flex my illustrator muscle.

ZBrush Kangaroo!

So, for this semester I am taking a class that teaches a digital sculpting program called ZBrush. I'm so happy I'm finally able to learn this program, it's too fun! Anyway, here's my first project, just a simple head sculpt. I took Flyer, my old kangaroo character (from a few posts ago, just click "character" to see who I'm talking about), and made him digital 3D! I still want to add a few more textures to him, and hopefully I'll be able to get around to that soon.
Anyway, please enjoy!

Goose Girl

So, school is back in full swing here at Ringling. It's still hard to believe I'm a senior! Things picked up pretty much the second we got back.
My first illustration assignment was a children's book illustration. I chose the story of The Goose Girl. If you're interested in reading it, you can find it here. Below are my two illustrations and process for said story. I chose to do paper sculptures for it, I felt the style and look fit the story well.



Illustration No. 2

(color wasn't necessary but I still wanted to have color in mind)

My dog can fly!

I decided to get some dog reference that I typically can't find online.  I used my favorite model, my dog Elle. She goes crazy for the hose, and I knew I'd get some funny shots. These are my favorite pictures.

New Business Cards!

Yay! My new business cards have been ordered and I cannot wait to get them!
I'm very pleased with the design and am working on a new matching portfolio layout and letterhead. I only ordered a few because, fingers crossed, I will have a website up and running come end of next year.
