The Child and Bug Project Project

Hello all, wanted to share some sketches I did as a demo for my students last Wednesday night. Just wanted get them going on this in class project. It's my sketches of Pen Pen and her friend Gustavo the bug. Poor little Gustavo thinks he's a real human child...but Pen Pen doesn't have the heart to tell would crush his little bug heart...heh. So they both love to go out in the world (which is their neighborhood) in their adventures.

My students have 3 weeks more till finals! So I expect everything done by then....there should be some pretty interested final projects form them. Catch you all later.

Death Race 2100 Color Demo

Hey all, how's it going? It's been a bit raining here in Southern Cali...But doing some doodles here and there in the past few days. Also got a chance to go to visit Rough Draft Studios the gang that brings you Futurama! It was a sweet place to hang out and chill for a bit.

Well, wanted to show you the color demo I did this past Wednesday night for my class. I scanned in the inks at 600 dpi grey scale and did the colors using straight Photoshop. I had fun working on this piece. Need to do some more demos on layout and the new class project that's coming up as well. So stay tuned.

Everyone have a great weekend and draw draw DRAW!!!

Death Race 2100 Doodle

Hey all,

How's things coming along with all of you? Hopefully well.
I wanted to uploaded a step by step doodle I did as a demo
for my students. I actually did an inking demo last night...
(the figure on the far right)
I used a size '0' watercolor sable brush with India Ink on
300 bristol board. Let me know what you all think? Just
wanted to keep it nice and loose.
Foe next week would like to color the inked images plus do
a final pose plus a nice action scene with the character.
Hopefully get that all done for them but the next two week.
Got some stuff on my plate that I nee to crank out as well.
So doing the balance of doing freelance work to my personal
work to class work and getting new work is really a challenge.

Well, I'll catch you all later then.

Take care,

Happy Chinese New Year!

Hey All! Wanna wish all my peeps in China a Happy New Year!
