A bit of a dilemma

So last week we had to do a barbershop layout for Layout class, and this week our job is to color it for Digital Tools class. Part of the assignment is to design a character to go into the barbershop. I gotta say though , I'm not really sure which of these concepts to go with? Any feedback is definitely appreciated, people.

¡¡¡Papa, voy a ser FLAMINGO!!!

So every week in my department, one of my professors will post a weekly drawing challenge for everyone. This week's theme was a character named El Flamingo, created by a very talented lady named Yochie Bee. He's a middle aged Latin "superhero" who through a series of misunderstandings was raised by flamingos. For my attempt at the challenge I decided to depict his origin; and event which drove him to seek vengeance and begin a "war" on crime.

UPDATED: My friend Tara reminded me that I messed up the shadow, and had the gradient going the wrong way, with the farthest part the darkest rather than it being darkest closer to the knees. Whoops gotta keep an eye out for stuff like that next time.

Whats this? It's Shaded?!

So, for my second Digital Tools assignment, I got the opportunity to go back and drop some shading and stuff into my campsite layout from last semester. I know I still have a tonne to learn, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, and I think it's a significant improvement over my last assignment. I think I got to show off a bit of my (limited) painting background with this, and overall I had a blast workin' on it. Any constructive criticism would be great.

Now one of these days I just gotta drop some colours into this puppy and I'm set.

Two Posts in one day?!

Figured I should probably put up my first completed digital tools assignment also. Gotta say, it was pretty fun to do. Can't wait for the next one.


So I finally got my final Layout assignments back today. I did a Cast Away themed campsite for this assignment, and I gotta say I'm actually pretty happy with how it turned out, although I NEVER WANNA DRAW A PALM TREE AGAIN. seriously those things were a pain, but whatevs, it worked out in the end.

I think I might get around to coloring this thing...

Little bit more from last semester

This right here is my final assignment from animation last semester. I'm actually kinda happy with it, and more importantly I think because of it I had a bit of a breakthrough in animation, which I had previously been struggling with. So yeah, good times.
