Another class assignment! This one was called “The Odd Couple”. We had to come up with two people coexisting with each other and some sort of conflict or problem. We also had to make the comic completely silent, spare for one word of our choosing. I decided to go with my old roommate and dear friend, Kaitlin and me (on what would probably in all reality be an average night) in our dorm.
Kaitlin’s a goofball and loves to dress up! She does wicked skull makeup and enjoys getting covered in the good ol’ fake blood (which we had more than enough of due to an interesting event that I won’t go into). Pretty much it’s about her flopping on the couch, covering it in fake blood, then us freaking out because we realized that the school-owned couch got stained… Thankfully it’s not based on a true story!
I tried to experiment with my style a bit on this one. It was really fun to let loose! Definitely had a good time drawing it. Having it be about a friend helped with that as well!
Maybe I’ll color this at some point! Who knows!
Here’s part of my final for concept art class! We had to put a good amount of the work we did over the quarter into a presentation as a sort of pitch to the class for our characters and story. I sure learned a lot last quarter! It was really fun!
This is Allison, a character in a webcomic/story that I hope to make in the future! Luckily I had the freedom in the class to do whatever I wanted story-wise, so I chose to develop my characters a bit! While she’s still in the very early stages of development, at least it’s a start!
Some more things for concept art class! Environmental assets (light switches and bags) and a character prop (the charm bracelets)!
Phwew, still so much work to do before the quarter is over. Gotta keep pressing on!
Some more works in progress for my concept art class… Character expressions and ideas for lamps in the cabin!
Here’s a roundbrush study done for my concept art class! I had to get as close to the reference photo as I could in the time allotted. I don’t think it came out too shabby! It was definitely a nice exercise, and I learned a lot!
Some value studies of my environment for concept art class.
I’m honestly still not entirely sure how to do these… but that’s why I’m in class: to learn!
Potential hair styles for the boy character!
Here’s some character design and development art that I’m working on for my concept art class! The first study… the girl character! She’s a witch, which is why there are some wand designs thrown in there. We’ll see what my class has to say about this stuff today.
Just in time for Halloween, here’s a comic I did for one of my classes for an assignment called “Night of the Hunter.” The objectives were to show at least two people talking and walking at night, then a scary point of view (without showing) the hunter, and finally the big reveal on the third page. Oh! Also the location had to be based on an actual place. I kind of chose a house from my old town… that my friends parent’s own… Nothing against it or them or the house of course! I just figured it would be fun and Halloweeny to draw! I don’t condone Halloween vandalism, and if someone did that to their house in real life I’d be pretty steamed!
Some works-in-progress for my concept art class. We had to sketch out really rough ideas (which we are now honing by delving into character and environment design) and I decided to color two scene sketches. Nothing extraordinary, but it was mostly to experiment with lighting and color to indicate mood and stuff. Hopefully I’ll post the more finely-tuned stuff when it’s done!
