Student Finals from the Spring Term

Hey all wanted to upload here in my blog samples of my students work from my last term. I was proud with what they have done. I only wish the best for all of them in the future. It makes me feel like a proud father to see my past students doing well in the job market and working in cool projects. So let me know what you all thing of these fine designs from my students; Chika, Damon and Pete. I would have uploaded more but the rest of the students fail to email me their final...oh well.
Next Wednesday I start the Summer term for my class...still need to figure which project I will be doing for this up coming class. I want it to be fun and challenging. I will have a full class and even have some on a waiting list...so I'll let them in...because I know that some will drop within the first few weeks.
It's a nice day out here in L.A. need to go out to enjoy it...I can do a lot of my work at night. :P I'll catch you all later.



Sammy, is a bit confused. Or is he really playing dumb? Then again he's a bit off...not dealing with a full deck....heh.

How's everyone doing out there? Hopefully well.

Went to E3 yesterday over in downtown L.A...it was a cool show this year...I do have to say that last year was not all that great...maybe it'll get bigger and better next year? Need to get ready for Comic Con net month...there's Anime Expo...but don't know if I'll go to that or not? I'll catch you later.

Leroy and the Last Day of Class for the Term.

Hey all it's the last day of the term today. Will be looking forward in seeing what my students of mine will be presenting tonight in class. I'll be ordering pizza and some drinks so we can chow down while we do our presentations. I will be giving them the first hour to finish up on their Child and Dragon project.

I should be good to go for the next term....so if any of you wanna take my class you still have sometime.

Please go out and enjoy thios wonderful day...well, it's a nice and sunny day here in L.A. But hopefully it's nice out where you are at. I'll catch you all later.

HHHart the Root Monster

Here's a doodle of HHHart one of my creatures. I wanted to show you all my process from pencils to inks to colors in doing a design like this.
1. start off with rough pencils.
2. ink the piece traditionally like HHHart but I also ink digitally.
3. use Photoshop for colors. From time to time I'll use Painter, Sketchbook Pro to color my pieces. That said...Photoshop is the main software that I use.

Well, catch you all later.

Carlos the Creepy Creature

Just finished watching the Lakers lose against the Celtics in the Finals...oh well...there's Tuesday.

Here's the inks and pencils of Carlos the Creepy Creature. I penciled this piece with a blue Col-erase pencil. The inked piece I dipped my water color brush into a bottle of Sennelier-Wlanut Stain ink. I totally dig the feel of the paper and the flow of the ink. Let me know what you think?

I'll like to use this piece for my Gallery show that I will be in late next month.

War Pigs

Here's a sketch I did at the Rock N Comic Con. It's fro my War Pigs project. It's piece done using a HB pencil, red Col-erase for tone and white Prismacolor pencil for the highlights onto a tone paper. Let me know what you think?
Still need to get the new quote for my Japon sketchbook. The first quote ended up being too much for what I want to do. I really want to make this book affordable for all to get. This three day weekend was pretty cool...got to go out and chill with friends and family. Got some sketches done as well...which is always good.

I'll catch you later,
