Troll Head Portrait!

So over the past few weeks I've been drawing heads for this 1,000 head challenge as a means to help improve my overall drawing. So after some absence I wanted to get back into with a head portrait (sort of) of my lvl 59 troll warrior in WoW at the end of his quests in Silithus. Trolls generally have very large volumetric nose, shallow eye pockets, and a really rounded forehead. Playing with colors and large strokes makes it easier to see forms at times. In any case, Merry Christmas to all and Happy New Years!

Here are various sketches made for the Titmouse blog, TitBlog. Each week had a new theme to excite everyone. My internship with them ended yesterday, and now I search for work.

Hey everyone! I can't really talk about this project because of a signed NDA. I am, however, allowed to promote any artwork I've made for it. This is a sample model sheet of the characters in the graphic novel that I'm making for musician Alia Ella Henderson. The art styling is pretty close to how it may turn out, but I need to experiment a bit more. This is a collaspable model sheet, meaning the bug folks are grouped in layers behind layers with other bug groups, so I can reference them while comic-making. So it's bed bugs, ants, and termite families in the front, main characters in the center, and giant muscle bugs in the back (including Master Hand). Enjoy :P

(Update, I've removed the image at my freelance employer's request)

I am currently interning at Titmouse Studios! Woooooooooooo! There is a lot of talent there and am learning something new each day, even things outside of art *gasp* I've made a friend or two, and have annoyed many people. It's a fantastic opportunity thus far and am cleaning up animation currently amongst other intern-y things. This is as unexpected to my life, as I am grateful for it. I can't mention many things about what's going on until after the release of current projects, sorry :(

For now, I offer you a pre-production quicky piece from the Star Fox film I'm undertaking. Enjoy! I will post more experience things soon! (Yay for 2:30 am broken thoughts!)

Go watch Iron Man 2! Robert Downey Jr. returns a crazy fool that nearly destroys himself and the world because he can't get past his narcissistic crazies @_@! Overall it was pretty good, some sharp writing, good casting, and nicely motivated action scenes. Side note, Happy Mother's Day everyone!

I'm about Mid-way through film production. My film story is rock solid and I'm getting the hang of adding personality and caricature when I animate. The challenge would be to finish with full color :) This is how I feel right now, kinda funny when you consider that I'm usually happy-go-lucky about things. I'm resting my eyes and mind this weekend. I'll get off the computer now. I'm still alive so I'll update soon, enjoy!

This get well card will get passed around the department for comments and good wishes for our beloved teacher and friend, Corny "lov'em and leav'em" Cole the 3rd. He has gone through a lot in the last year and has been resting at home for a few months now. If you've known Corny for some time or have been one of his students, send him some mail through CalARTs Character Animation.
