I JUST FINISHED MY SKETCHBOOK PDF FULL OF MY BEST SKETCHES FROM THIS FALL FOR CONCEPTSKETCHBOOK CLASS HEAR ITTTTT

I’m not gonna post it until later but here have more sneak peeks

I might modify it later on to include the mediums I use + other commentary for reference and it’ll be FUHREEEEE to download!! That’s right you can own my pseudo-first kind of professional digital sketchbook with 30 pages wow 

It’s mostly chuck full of animal+people drawings/gestures, personal art (with ghost patrol in there somewhere), and well a bit of everything.

I’m pretty stoked about this actually. Now to cram for psychology final… hA…haahha

LOTS OF LEGS TODAY I will upload all my leg anatomy studies soon, but yeah this was what I got out of tonight’s homework WOO. First image: Mastercopy of one of Paul Cadmus’ artwork, look him up he’s great. Second is referenced, and third is just skeletal and musculature study of the leg (front).

I’m pretty proud of these even though I was tired and it took me like two hours to get the engine going for productivity!! I discovered I really love drawing legs and they’re just so great and also I like the style I am developing with these figure drawings, lots of lines are my favorite things ok

and now I am to bed. Good productive night aw yiss

This was what I was up to last night for Game Art Perspective class

We had to make a non-organic prop with silohuetttes and a side view, and I didn’t know that at first so I made a wooden fishy crossbow and then I was like oh hell no I did this wrong

so I went and made a medieval magical crossbow cyborg arm for an anthro rabbit knight from this picture

this rabbit guy will mess you up bro

Current StudySpace- I really liked how it looked so I went and took a pic haha. This is basically going to be how I’m tackling digital anatomy for the rest of the semester probably, if I keep on borrowing my Roomate’s Cintiq as a 2nd monitor. (I usually just have one monitor and it’s not enoughh!) But yep BOOKS BOOKS EVERYWHERE and reference

Wow I’m feeling so great tonight even though its 4am in the morning HHAHAA…. . Okay so super peppy self-confidence talk time!!!

You see that first photo there? Yeah that was my first 3d model ever. And I had no idea what I was doing and it was so messy n shit and during class I almost cried because I was so lost and I thought I couldn’t do 3d. Fast forward lots of mistakes, really bad models, questions crits to today where I just recently finished applying basic lighting on materials and loaded my model into a game engine [photo 2]

Yeah, I’m not a pro, not yet, still so far away from being one, but hot diggity damn am I so glad I didn’t give up on myself!! Look how far I’ve gotten!! I’m so proud, and now I’m working on a zoid head (I’m fangirling right now, I’ve always wanted to 3d model a zoid head!!! ever since high school!!) 

I’m super freakin’ stoked and I’m just really proud and happy looking back on my improvements so far!  I still have a long way to go, no doubt, but ahhhh I know I can do it!

FUCK YES DONE WITH MY WATERCOLOR FINAL I AM SO DONE THERE ARE MISTAKES BUT OH FREAKIN’ WELL, IM JUST HAPPY ITS FINISHED AND LOOKING GOOD ENOUGH DHSGSGH
