Wouldn't it be nice...

...if you could just fly away once in a while?
Assignment for story boarding.
If I could have one super power, it would be flight.

EDIT: My flikr account crashed, which is why a lot of the photos on my blog are no longer up. I'm in the process of fixing this. Sorry!

Holy flapjacks, Batman!

Sorry for the lack of updates. School started and things got a little crazy after that. School is awesome, by the way. I love the animation classes I'm taking. I'd just like to say how completely excited and overjoyed I am that I'm in the program! Here's to the next four most excellent years.
Okay, art time. (Not to be confused with Adventure Time)

Watercolor painting. It was an activity for an awesome book called Prepare to Board. The prompt was "I must."
Final for story boarding. I still have some line work to rework on this guy, but I'm uploading him for now. This is Benny, the socially handicapped rooster. He was raised by ducks and is surrounded by ducks, so he naturally has a social-phobia to work out. He can't fly or swim, but he's the largest and easily the most beautiful animal at the pond. He believes that he's a misfit and hates talking to other animals for fear of saying something completely ridiculous. He's insecure, shy, and painfully tries his best to fit in. About the only thing he's good at is being kind and crowing, which the other animals hate. Poor guy.

Large sketchdump. Hard to see from here, so click here to see it in higher resolution and a description of what each of the pictures are.

Okay, so Hawk drew this fabulous picture of me just because she's awesome like that. I was so pleasantly surprised! So I decided to draw her a picture too. Here she flying on the back of a hawk gryphon. Inspired by the comics Herobear and The Kid, which I absolutely adore.

Remember this guy? He's my character, turned into a giant bird creature. Because he can do that.

That's all for now, folks.
