Stereotypes in whites

Something Peter Emslie had us do: to design clearly identifiable types in non descriptive clothing. There is supposed to be four :) but I dont think it achieved the intended type.

In case you didnt guess the types here; they are: English professor, ballerina, and a truck-stop waitress.


This is a large 36"X12" charcoal illustration I had done for my sister's 19th birthday

Galleon in asteroid field

This is something our layout instructor Piotr Bielicki had us do (so you should see a bunch of these damn ships around the blog community). Made you do a little research, and think about composition without getting into too much detail (on the asteroids).

In second year we had to come up with a story idea. We were asked to develop artwork, characters and story board it. This is all to get us ready for 3rd and 4th year to get a feeling for the entire process. I have to say that although I am not proud of it, I have learned a lot about the process and hopefully will not make the same mistakes in future projects.

A couple of story sketches:

Here are some selected character designs:

Some Layouts and Paintings:

This is supposed to be a 1950-60s New York type of city

Story Reel

Because of time limitations and last minute story changes, the boards are EXTREMELY rough, although still quite readable. You can download the 15M story reel here:

Something I had developed for one of those CG Networks (now called CG Society) contests. It was the MachineFlesh contest which required a character to be a blend of organic and machine. So I thought it would be pretty cool to fuse an elephant and a stork. Although I didn't go ahead with the challenge, I ended up doing a large charcoal illustration of this thing during the summer after first year.
