Shape Experiments

I think shape is a wonderful thing. I did a series of test drawings purely with shape in black and white to see what I could do. Tell me what you think!

This is one I did of Timpanogos Mountain in the evening.

Same mountain in the morning. I love how the light catches the mountains.

This is of another mountain near campus in the evening.

I thought I might try to do an indoor composition with only windows and lights showing.

I like the variety of shapes trees create. First attempt.

Three is better then one.

I was in the studio pondering what else to draw with great shadows and this guy seemed to stare back at me.

Sketchbook Gestures

These are some live gesture drawings I did in my sketchbook. Some were done with black marker while others were gray marker with a pen overlay.

Animation Program

Well, I am pleased to announced that I finally got accepted to the animation program. A year and a half's work paid off, but not quite the way I wanted. They told me that I wasn't accepted for my artistic skill, but rather my work ethic. That's fine with me, but I'll just have to work harder on developing my art. As you can see from what I've posted and will yet post, I've got a lot of work to do.

This is a rough sketch I did with marker in my sketch book. Just a random sketch.
