skinny knight vs giant mushroom forest protector

I have a hunch on who's gonna win this one, but I won't tell you =]
It's kind of a step-by-step assignment, so for monday it's pretty much done (even though I'm gonna color them). Next week we add an environment.

Yep this is also for me book story fantasy thesis whatevs whatevs...

Fall update

So Halloween is about to make everyone go crazy... On a personal matter I figured it'd be nice to stop taking the lazy pill and photograph some of the works I've been doing this semester. These are from portrait painting with Zheng Fu Lu and from situation and environment class with the amazing Zhaoming Wu, not to mention the awesome classmates from whom I've been learning quite a lot as well...
Anyways, hope these aren't too bad. Been trying hard to make my colored canvases look like actual paintings...

Days of Peace and Pints

Drawing from imagination is a pretty fun class, and Stephen Player makes it go smooth and interesting. This is a one point perspective exercise which I tried to make into an image for the Alenkhar story. My plan is to have 3-4 illustrations related to that by the end of the semester to which I can add the logo of the book and turn them into project covers or teaser image/posters for the whole project.

Long time without posting. This is a fun dude I kinda liked and decided to scan and share. I'm leaning towards coloring him in illustrator and try to get an animation feeling to him.

TGIF! Finals kicking in and the motivation is already flying ahead to the next semester. Cant's stop thinking about the story I want to write for creative writing class =]. And the best part of it.... being in Brazil with the folks and the bros while working on that !!!

These characters have a rough blurry but absolutely confirmed spot in my story =D. The portrait took a little longer to do since I tried to flesh and render him a little. The other dude is just a mess. Loving them both so far. Will surely flesh both of them out during the break. Little main character girls coming soon ... Thanks to my instructor Kristan Le (she's great) for the triple-pony-tail-karaoke-singing idea for the main character!!! LOL

Hope everyone has a great end of semester and a fun break!

* If u're asking urself "wtf where's the dude's arm?" The answer is I have no idea (yet)
**edit** Newer version for Shabbah the crazy giant god of something that I'm not sure what is... that he's god of... sigh

character silhouette

The writing is supposed to mean "Cancer" in Greek. Gotta trust google I guess. I'm enjoying this b/w shape so I'm gonna flesh this guy out on whatever extra time I got between assignments. This will be added to what will hopefully become my thesis project which will include creating 24 characters, 12 for the zodiac signs and 12 for the chinese year animals. So yeah, any comments are welcome!

Hope yall students had a fun loving spring break and are ready to get back to it!

Girl with the Tattoo

This was fun. The photo is horrible and was taken under artificial light at night. I've worked more on her feet, legs and hand, to create a nicer flow to it. I'll take a better pic soon and remove these excuses lines. =D

Charcoal yum yum

this is an example of how to NOT draw hands... And I hope below is an example of how to YES draw hands, lol....

I'll put the finished version here once I take a pichurr.

Feet study. This was much quicker than the hands due to a boring essay I had to write during the weekend and also cuz I wanted to try being faster and less worried. I like the outcome.

In-class drawing. I'll be drawing this model again for the long 2 week assignment. Really dig the tattoo on her arm.
