So, this was a project about a ‘Foodies’ article for our Editorial Illustration class. Wanted to do something about an instagramming Foodie, but went for cute anthropomorphic dancing food. We didn’t get much information about the article, so this doesn’t really show a story or anything, except that the girl is a ‘non-foodie’ who is rather confused.

The gif isnt as smooth as I would have wanted it to be. With 4 frames for each character and one week to do everything I didn’t risk doing more frames (also much later did I realize the cupcake was missing some colours too).

Anyway, did this is pretty small too. When I get some free time, I’ll probably each one separately and try make them smoother too and upload in better quality.

But for now, here’s cute dancing food! =)

'Snorkelling On Land' - At the Academy of Sciences, San Francisco

Taken with iphone5 on Cameo app

edit - The app removed the original music I used due to copyright issues I’m assuming and replaced it with a random song which doesn’t flow as nice with the video… =(

Editorial Illustration assignment for the article 'The Problem With Rich Kids'.

The thumbnail I started with, rough sketch, colour compositions and final illustration done with ink and watercolours, with some shadow layers edited digitally.

Talking about rich kids and drugs, I drew this in reference to Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

In class watercolour painting. Still trying to get the hang of doing watercolours. I’m terrible at drawing from live models, and worse at painting, especially because when I do paint and draw realistic stuff, I like to take my time, and in class we don’t get to do that; so just did a stylized drawing for this.

Taking Digital Painting this semester, and we’re learning Corel Painter. Some things are pretty awesome in it compared to Photoshop. It’s really good for doing digital painting in a more painterly style, than to what I mostly do which is flat colours.
Been painting this guy from my last semester’s character design class as we’re learning values and colouring and stuff. Still really trying to get the hang of the program.
Will probably stick to a simpler style than this for the rest of my assignments, painting more realistic is just not my thing =\

Some thumbnails of my ideas for a spot illustration for my Editorial Illustration class. 

The article was titled  'Futurists Explore the New Horizon' and is about many predictions by futurists for the future. I took a very literal approach and drew things talked about in the article. 

Personally I wanted to #6, but as chosen by my lecturer will be doing #1 ; on 3D printers printing food and body parts. 

I’m taking a water colour class for my directed studies for college, as well as a digital painting class; hoping to decide between what medium I want to use as a final illustration style, which I’m still sort of struggling to keep uniform. I might just mix both of them up…
Anyway, here’s a not so greatly painted pot from week 1 from the water colour class. Considering how I haven’t touched water colours in forever, I think this turned out fine.
