Some more finals stuff...

Trevor! Treeevorrrrrr. Trev trev trevor!
Done in the style of FSc

The custodial hero in her second incarnation, as an emulation character design. (Here's her first appearance) Here I'm tried to emulate the stylin' styles of Mr. Sean Galloway, a.k.a. Cheeks.
And a painted CD case, commissioned by friend Stacy! Check out her art blog here:

Character Design Final

For my character design final, the story of 'Custodial Hero.'

Note: Name changed to Halle MacFarlane.

Can you tell I wrote these character descriptions in the wee hours of the morning? :|

In a big city, Hero and Maria are custodians at the local community college. Life was simple, Catrin and Maria worked the crack-of-dawn shift, and the only problem Catrin had was how to approach the man of her dreams, a grounds crew worker she has been crushing on for two months. But as fate would have it, one dark morning a chemical cabinet fell on our two protagonists! In what would first appear as an accident most unfortunate, it was really a blessing in disguise! When the two unwitting heroes returned to work a few weeks later, they found they could clean like never before! But all is not well... as if drawn like a magnet to its polar opposite, Dirt Devils began haunting the city, possessing its unsuspecting inhabitants, drawn to the increased skills of clean of our two heroes! Now it is up to Maria and Catrin to clean up their city and rid it of the forces of filth with their new-found skills even Mr. Clean would envy!


Drawing for Animation Final

This pretty much sums up our drawing for animation class.


This was my funnest class this semester. Besides my landscape painting class.

Kung Fu Panda Prints!

This is what I've been doing for the past FOREVARZ:

And you can buy them as prints too! Each character is it's own print, except Tai Lung and Shifu, they are together on one print. Each print is 5.5" x 8.5"
The cost of the first one is 3 USD, then any more after that are 1 USD each, because I'll just mail them together. Of course, if you order 50 lbs of prints then we'll have to do some re-figuring. ;)

Hopefully I'll get that set up with PayPal soon... Yeah. Until then I'll take orders through e-mail. 

Oh dear I am getting to 
this age.

Cheetahs, Comics and Characters...

I saw 'Batman Gotham Knight' the other day... some of them were really cool, but some of them were like, 'Omigosh, Holy Anime Batman STOP WINKING what the heck.'

Anyway. Sorry for the lack of updates. UGH.

First off RACHEL made this, not me. (Go to her blog NAO!) Well, not really. I added the legs, it was just a head before. :3 I have sketches too, so look for those in the FUTURE.

I actually re-did this, so I'll try to upload the newer one when I get it back. Assignment for my Drawing for Animation class.

More backs of comics that I've sent out...


Man, this is so old. I sprouted, stir-fried and ate those sprouts a million years ago.

This happened...
As did this.
What a terrible realization.

That's it for now!
Remember, I haven't died. I'm just buried under a mountain of school work.
