The Cake is a Lie!

This is a final I did for one of my classes. The theme was "Pretty Ugly," and I think I captured it quite well. It was quite fun coming up with this one. This is by far the most violent image I have ever created, but shouldn't all of us branch out?
I'm sure if you've played Portal you'll enjoy this even more. Maybe I should add a weighted companion cube...but then it would only make me cry.

UPDATE: I changed the lighting to make it look better:

Senior Pitch

So we had our senior pitch today. This is the artwork that went along with my idea. It is an extremely lonely ghost town.

We had some really great pitches. I'm excited to see what we all choose to do. All I know now is that it will be awesome, so prepare yourself world: the BYU 2009 animated short will blow your mind.

Oh yeah, this is my first painting ever. So critique away.

An unlikley Heroine

I was hoping to have an additional picture ready, but all you get for now is this non-typical herione from my character design class. Hope you like.

A curious dog

This is my favorite picture so far. It has a great composition and its all monochromatic, which is sweet. The short depth of field really enhances it and the focal plane is exactly where I wanted it.


Yes I am a budding photographer. I recently got myself a digital SLR so I could take even better pictures. And here are some of the results. Enjoy!

Character design had us making some creative silhouettes. The topics were 2085 Soldier, Geisha, Victorian Woman, and Native American 400AD.

"Solid as a Rock"

Yes I am guilty of neglecting my blog. A lot has happened in the intervening months since my last post. I got a job doing 3D animation and software development on a kids TV show, I left the MTC, and I moved into a new house with new roommates. Fun stuff. The summer was way busier than expected so I was not able to draw and work on my art as much as I wanted, but now I'm back into it. Aside from being an integral part of my new business model, the top one is a sketch I drew up in Rock Canyon. The bottom one was an assignment to turn one of our sketches from nature into a character.

Working Too Hard

Sorry, I haven't posted anything for a while. I've been working on an animation for one of my classes. I think I post a version of it when I'm all done. In the mean time, here are a couple of compositions I planned on putting up last fall, but never got around to it. They have a ton of stuff I would change now, but thats one good thing of looking at old stuff; you get to see your growth.

African Animals

Hey y'all! I did these for TheQuickDraw. They were done with a Pitt Pen and were really fast. I've been drawing for 15 min every day for about a week now, and I'm lovin it. Its good to get back into drawing.

Disembodied Heads

Yes, I am guilty of neglecting my blog for about 6 months now. What happened? Laziness mostly, but busyness too. We focused a lot of effort on trying to finnish Lion and the Mouse, but it is still not done. I think we all got burnout from working on it too hard in such a short amount of time. Enjoy these heads from my sketchbook. When I get bored, and have nothing else to draw, heads come out.
