Big Update!

Okay I suck at updating. I know. I mean, all the things that have happened since I last updated? Oh man. I graduated, I did my senior show, I started to DM a Dungeons and Dragons campaign (lol nerd), I got hit by a car, I cured cancer, I performed real sorcery and turned a fish into a chicken (which actually killed itself by trying to go back into the water), and became a government specialized assassin in murdering communist threats using nothing but a Bass Guitar that is secretly also a machine gun.

Only some of that is true, I leave it up to you to decipher what is and what isn't.

Anyways, maybe I should post some art, eh?

This is a drawing of Colossus, which a 4th grade student that I had during student teaching asked me to draw for him by the end of the day. I have been meaning to draw at least one marvel character at that time so I drew it in an hour and gave it to him. I had fun with it.

These 8 children working is a bit I did for art education. All done in Adobe Illustrator. It was basically my final for the Art Ed senior show.

This is the most recent thing I did. It is a friend of mine from... well. I guess Kindergarten. We even went to the same college. His name is Derek. Either way, I decided to do some acrylic painting on bristol board and I decided to do a bit of color studies by doing some photoshop speed painting. This one seemed to turn out the most like I had imagined it to. The painting itself is still in process, although I completed most of it in about an hour and a half. This photoshop study took me aboutt an hour. Fun little quick project.

Honestly, that is kind of it for now. I have been trying to delve more into traditional lately. Hopefully this summer, I will acquire a job, and will do some painting on the side. :]

Benjamin Reyes!

New style! Kind of... actually its kind of in the style of one of my biggest inspirations from illustrator artists. This style is based mainly off of the awesome Jessica Finson. Google her. She's awesome. I have been a fan of her art work for about 5 years now, and just watching her work has given me millions of ideas to grow into the style that I have been accustomed to.

I want to try this a bit more, so I hope to work on more of this style soon. (Kind of already am).

ALSO, the model in this image is the brother of my girlfriend. His name is Ben Reyes. He is a cool dude. Its his birthday today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEN.

I had some issues with the pose. The proportions and perspective was giving me all sorts of problems. I still am not as happy as I would like to be with it, but I figured, its stylized and I wanted to make it look stylized. So I have to stop worrying about it.

I like this pokemon. One of my favorite electric types, right next to Lanturn. I tend to love most of the gen2 pokemon, maybe even more than I enjoy gen1... (I still love red and blue, dont get me wrong).

Now that I am student teaching I am motivated to do some work. Really. I did 3 things this week, and I didn't even have to. Okay. 2 things. But the third one is being worked on right now and I seem to have a little trouble with it.

I don't know what it is but I am inspired to draw pokemon. As shown on my previous posts I have done Oddish and Wooper. Here is a list of a few more I think I may do....

Bolded = pokemon I really like
Italicized = Drawings I am working on.

Ampharos (Currently being worked on)
Cubone (sketch done)
Charamander (sketch done)
Weezing (thumbnailed partially)
Pikachu (its a must... but I have a bad ass idea for it.)
Breloom (thumbnailed partially)

Just to name a few. Whether or not I do all of them... who knows. As you can see, and if you have ANY pokemon knowledge most of my favorite pokemon consist of poison types. Thats right. I freaking love the poison type.

This post is overall a reminder to myself. A list to remind me of things I could/should draw while I go through this semester. Hopefully student teaching won't eat ALL my time away. I want to work on some of these things...

I freaking love Wooper. He is probably one of my favorite pokemon from generation 2.
