Final final final.

Alright, I'm done messing with it. I went back and fixed some stuff with graphite, took a new photo, and touched it up in photoshop. Hope you like it!

Dad, Final Rendering (?)

DISCLAIMER: The values represented here are not entirely accurate to what would be seen when looking at the actual piece. I made some adjustments in photoshop, including paintovers to darken the pupils, irises, and hair, to get rid of the glare from the light on the graphite. It looks MUCH better in person... but this gives you an idea of what it looks like.

I need to find a better way to get large stuff like this on my comp in a more faithful-to-the-original manner.

Old folks, and horses.

My gesture class went to an old-folks' home today, to draw some old people. It was pretty fun. All the women were really excited to get portraits.

After that, we went to a horse stable down the road.

Still working on this.

This is the final line drawing, which I will be adding value to over the next week. You can see I got excited about value, and started on some of the ears... but, it'll look awesome when I'm done. The left-most head has the weakest resemblance, in my opinion, but I'm not sure how to fix it.

Oh well, I'll post the final version on Wednesday night, next week.

Glass and sketches

This is part 1 of my self portrait goblets, conveying my introversion.

This is part 2 of my self portrait goblets, which conveys my extroversion.

This is my goblet to be used for a ceremony. I had a great idea, but realized I'd better not do it... so I came up with this. The ceremony for which this goblet is designed is re-marriage.

And, here are some sketchbook pages.

So, you'll have to click the image to see anything close up... but I'd appreciate it if you could do that! =-D

There are two guys here... the top left bunch (and the bottom right) are of some old white dude... The rest are of a young black guy.

Figures from my sketchbook

Some quick, 20-minute drawings from photos. I really like the bottom right drawing.


Three of the 15-minute studies we did before the 3-hour midterm, which you can see below!

This was taken with my camera phone, so it's not of great quality. However, I'm decently happy with it.
And here it is after 5 minutes of painting in photoshop. I just wanted to get a more realistic contrast in the values. This is closer to what the original looks like... just not so dark, I suppose.

The Girls


Tuesday, March 2, 2010


This is my first finished project done for my glass class. I have two others near completion, but I need to wait for my teacher to pull some glass for me. This assignment was to make a non-utilitarian goblet. So, I cut up the lip, so you can't drink from it, and I made the stem with sharp, colored glass, so it's difficult to hold.
