Aha, part two of my Illustration 1 final - to do a concept piece of an environment from The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey.This was definitely a struggle for me, but one that I needed to have :P It was a great experience to actually research 1920’s kitchens and log cabins, so that I could get a proper setting laid out.Done with paper cut outs again, and put together and edited in Photoshop CS5

An assignment for my Illustration 1 class - take a part of a story and make something out of it C:
And because I’m incredibly lazy, I went with the story of Dangerous Dan McGrew, because I’d already designed the characters from my AC class. It was convenient, and incredibly lucky that my Illustration teacher decided to be nice to me, and let me make this one with paper cut outs instead of gouache, or as a digital illustration :DSo anyway, heres Dangerous Dan McGrew, cut out from pieces of paper, and finished off in Photoshop CS5

Here’s a series of characters that I made based off of the story of “Dangerous Dan McGrew” :) We had to design them based off of a particular style that my teacher had in mind, and finally I was able to come up with something that he really liked :D So I’m happy with this one ^^

 These were done with colored pencil, marker, and various scraps of paper

I present to thee, oh great people of Tumblr, the result of much luck and persistence; ten character studies, cut up and glued together from little scraps of paper, and drawn on with pen and pencil.

Long story short.. through a series of incredible events, spanning out over the course of about a year or so, I’ve been granted an incredible chance to study character design under the artists Matt Nolte and Daniel Holland. So far 2012 has been very kind to me, and even though I’m still under the influence of beginners luck excitement, I’m really stoked to be able to learn from them, to keep growing, and finally to start having fun again :’D
This is just our first assignment, so it still looks a bit rough in the beginning as I’m figuring it all out.. I’m definitely a shrimp amongst sharks in this class (most people have already gotten jobs in the animation and gaming industry)(slash starting out in my own new apartment on my own with a cat AND IT’S TERRIFYING BUT IT’S OKAY) But it is definitely nice to have the chance to get my feet wet, and to be able to start proving myself/ seeing if I’ll survive and not die or anything C: 
Soooooo here’s my first shot, critique and whatnot is definitely encouraged, and wish me luck for the upcoming semester C:
