Satyr-type thing

Not exactly what I had hoped for... especially when the program crashed while trying to paint the guy. Luckily I saved these screenshots before attempting that step.

The Eve of Christmas

Yep. Whattaya think?

Flickr, please!

The first is from yesterday, while the second is from the end of September. I just noticed it on my card, today.

Almost forgot...

Not the greatest, but it's the best from last thursday. Sorry it took me a week to remember to post it. I nearly forgot tonight!

Wednesday, December 16, 2009


So, my domain seems to be unlocked, as the old layout is now up there. However, it's still being hosted on a different server from the one that I want it on. So, I emailed Yahoo, which manages my domain, and asked them to resolve it. Hopefully, that'll be taken care of soon.

Loans. Loans suck. I finally finished the info portion of the loan process with chase. Now I just need to sign the forms which chase was supposed to have sent me about 4 hours ago... but they did not. Ugh. But, since I've been conditionally approved, once I send them those forms, they should send certification to my school, and I can register for classes. Then everything will be perfect... for a little while.

Sorry I don't have anything visual to post. I'll post a photo of Lilah when I get home tonight.... if I remember.

I hope you're all doing well (the two of you who actually read this... Dad, and Lisa.)

Sneak peak at my new site design.

"Home" has a drop shadow to indicate that you are on the home page. "Work" has the outer glow because my mouse was hovering over it. I just need to add lightbox to my work page, and fill my Home and About pages with text.

Then I need to set up my new account with FatCow, and dish out ~$70 for my first year with them. And finally, I'll have a website again.

I know I haven't posted in a while... but I haven't really been doing anything visual in any of my classes. And, unfortunately, my classes are taking up all my time.

I'm working on redesigning my website. I'm going to move the domain over to a different server over winter break, probably, so get excited about that! I'm really excited about the ideas I have for it.

Animated GIF!

I can't believe I forgot to post this. I saved this every hour, so I could make a GIF of my progress.

Click here to see it... Blogger won't let me post animated GIFs

Danielle Painting!

About 8.5 hours spent on this. It was pretty fun.

Digital Fundamentals

I had to focus on a word, and make the image convey that word... my word was "analytical."

20-piece project!


Digital Fundamentals Project

It's not finished - I've yet to add all the design elements which will surround and overlay me - but I AM finished building myself with the pen tool. Everything you see was meticulously traced out with the pen tool, in photoshop. I kinda sped through the hair and hoodie, but... meh.

Danielle and I tried to do homework tonight. We ended up watching Groundhog Day, and 500 Days of Summer. It was fun.

As always... Flickr, please! Blogger ruins my photos.

Design Stuff

This first one is a few angles of the project I worked on for three weeks. I hate it. Haha. It's made of foam, and spray painted with car paint.

This was an assignment for which I had to make a 30" tall structure of 1/8" dowels, thread, and wood glue. It had to be able to support 10 pounds at its highest point. Originally, it stood the other way, but I realized that it wouldn't be able to hold 10 pounds that way. I flipped it over, and actually liked how it looked, that way... It also held 10 pounds this way. =-D
These are all the same piece, I just photoshopped them into one image to save space. I need to make 20 of these, and create a larger composition with those pieces.

And that's what I do in my Design Concepts 2 class.

Rough Jimi

The likeness isn't completely there, but it was just a quick little exercise before bed. G'night everyone.

Sorry if you're sick of Diah... but I think I'm done. I pulled it into photoshop and tweaked some levels, colors, and textures.

More progress

Changed her right hand... she'll be pouring candies into her mouth. I changed the color of the to match the surrounding colors, and I've added tones of value. I've got to finish that left hand, the cup, and some more colors... then I think I'm done.

I'll probable spruce it up in photoshop, too.

Diah Beedus

This is a character I'm developing for a Creative Visualization project... in fact, this image IS the project (there's a white border when you print, thus explaining the nice, vignetted paper texture). However, I'm neither done with the linework, nor the color... this is just my first night of work. The legs took forever to figure out, and I'm still unhappy with them, but that may be the best I can get it.

From the Sketchbook

All with a Bic pen.

Octopus dude.

This started out as a sketch of Cthulhu, but his nose looked like a little mouth, and I thought it was kinda funny. So, this came out, in the end.

I'll post what I've been drawing in my sketchbook, soon.

Elf and a coked-out zombie dude.

I should be in bed.

Today, at CCS.

I should've taken more pictures.

And of couse... Please view 'em on Flickr!

This is what I'm doing instead of homework...

Joe gave me a pair of polarized sunglasses... pretty awesome.

Check it out on Flickr, since blogger desaturates and blurs photos like crazy.

And how about some photoshop fun?

Storyboards for Creative Viz...

I left it kinda big so you can click it, and see the individual boards easier.

We were given the outline of, "Two people are on the CCS campus doing everyday things, then all of a sudden... ALIENS!" I'm going to have notes that go along with the boards, but it was easier to photograph them like this. Essentially, the guy tells a joke, the girl spits her drink. He goes to the bathroom, and sees an alien. He screams, not because of the alien, but because the water is too hot. He apologizes, and explains... the alien is confused. Great story, eh?! Haha.


Ok, so it's not really creative in any way, but I feel accomplished. We had to take the photo (left) and duplicate it using the mesh tool... which is a pain in the ass to work with. Anyway, it's not perfect, but it's damn close... especially if you look at it from far away, or shrink it down on your screen.

Sculptures for Design Concepts 2

I really like the second one... the first one, not so much.

Saturday, September 19, 2009


Eddie trying not to laugh... he needed to make a serious face. We took at least 20 shots before he could manage it.

We were shooting for a project I'm working on for my Creative Visualization class. Just a short story told through photographs. He's playing a really sleazy dude who shoots me, the door to door salesman. That's important to know before you see this next image. Eddie and I do NOT hang out in our underwear. Haha.

Click here to see Eddie's dance!

Everyone's favorite french superhero.

I'll try to get some real nice sketches done soon. I've got two projects to finish this weekend.

Jon brought Lilah over today while he hooked up our wifi. It was really sad when she had to leave... she cried. =-\
