My first painting assignment is done! :D
I was to paint the same picture in four different variations.
  1. Flat B&W
  2. Shading B&W
  3. Shading and Lighting B&W
  4. Monochromatic
I've never painted with gouache and have very, very limited experience with painting in general so it's quite crap.

5'' by 7''. Winsor & Newton Designer Gouache on Arches 140lb cold-press watercolour paper.

I call it "Failure In Gouache Parts One Through Four".


Welp, I have the same attitude for all my assignments right now: I can only get better.
Hopefully by the end of the semester I'll have improved ten-fold.

Cheers,

I've finished my first animation assignment for class.
It's very simple- a rubber ball, a bowling ball, a balloon & a pendulum.

There's probably a million little mistakes (especially with timing), but it was due today so it had to get done.

OLD SCHOOL ANIMATION PAPER & PEGBARS & MAGIC.
Only digital was done in post to compile this for you.

Unfortunately it's a bit hard to see because Blogger re-sized it to be quite small. SQUINT.*

*If you do not wish to squint, it can be seen on Youtube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=suGGAYyemzI

Music in clip is Creating "Governing Dynamics" from the soundtrack of 'A Beautiful Mind' by James Horner. Everything else is done by myself.

Next animation assignment is due in four weeks and it's an S & C curve.

Now I'm off to finish painting and do some layout. This week is breaking my new-found-pleasant disposition. :C
