Winter is Approaching

But apparently it's summer now in San Francisco.

A different approach on the painting technique. Tried to emulate Erwin Madrid's and Goro Fujita's painting style. Think I start to get it! :D

The Freak Show - The Albino Girl

A piece for a painting challenge with my friend, themed "The Freak Show".
So much trouble for the bloody process -_-a. Started off with value studies and it was AWESOME! Then when I colored it, it turned super blah. Not satisfied at all with it but I wont spend more time on it.
Move on to the next piece!!!

The value studies which I prefer more than the finished -_-a.

PS. I'm making the whole character designs for this theme :)

Silent Calls

Turned out nice! :D
I'm happy with the result, and I think I'll explore this style more.
Inspired by James Jean and Shelly Wan :)


Smoke and Gun

Recent sketch.
This time I tried to corporate the design element, and it's such a pain to do a design driven drawing, but I guess it's a nice start! :)

Ok. Need to do more!!

Heads Attack!

Haven't really updated my 1000 heads drawing. Now here it is! :)

Ugh, some of the heads turn out blah. But whatever, all the bad drawings will be flushed out my system when I'm done with this project anyway lol :p.
Blessed day everyone!

Advanced Perspectives

Not so quite recent pieces, and the only 2 pieces I could save before the doom of my external hard drive *sobs*.

This one's I did a year back for advanced perspective class, but I repainted almost the whole image 3 months ago to achieve the look I wanted.
The theme is "geisha" and I thought, why not creating a vampiric geisha?
So here it is!

The Last Supper

Another one, a part of my "Nanny Extraordinaire" project for the final assignment, as well as the visdev board.
Moonlight Night

Nanny Extraordinaire Board

All done digitally.

Art Dump From the Past Part 2

Old pieces...

This one's a project from "Fundamental for Graphic Design" 2 years ago.
We had to come out with a postcard design for a specific event we chose. I chose "Wicked", a theatrical play about the wizards of Oz.

If you wonder why in the world I took that class, that was because I was in Graphic-Illustration department instead of Traditional Illustration.
And dude, I regretted it a a lot, since I had to substitute oil painting classes with this one and 2 others graphic design classes that DID NOT make any use at all -_-a.

"Wicked Postcard"

And this one, a collab project with my friend, Gloria for a small contest in deviantart, themed "spring". I did the kids and foreground digitally, and Gloria did the background using pastel.
First time exploring painting style using OpenCanvas *which now I don't use at all since that program is not mac OS integrated.*

"Their Own Spring"
Collab Project - 2008.
Mixed media.

That's about it today.
Actually I had more, but unfortunately most of the files were stored in my external HD and it burnt last semester T_T. Too bad I deleted some stuffs in my DA and hadn't started on my blog until the beginning of this year.
Oh well...

Gestures Attack!

Time for some gesture drawings!
Like the heads, I numbered each of them to ensure I keep my focus on :).

First couple of gestures from Mike's Character design class.

Practices at home. Thank God for this link and this link :).

More attacks later! :D

Woo hoo!

Finally got to set up my own art journal, after only following people's. Ok now to start things off, here's couple of head studies, as part of my 1000 head drawings project.
I'll upload more later! :)

the first couple of heads.
line quality is not that great, and I relied on shadows to make the forms.

2nd batch, more line contour and less shading :)

more line structure! :D

all images in this post @Mutia Terian 2010.

That's it for today! :D
