Bear Jump

Also while we're still on bears, have a quick bear jump I key'd and made breakdowns for in class yesterday (about 1hr 30min work).
It's about 10 frames.

Bear Doodles

So I don't know why but I've been having a bear crave lately and decided to quickly (30min) bust out some bear doodles while waiting for class the other day. Then later on, I decided to practice more with color and render one of the suckers. Actually fairly pleased with how it turned out.

I've been doing a ton of animal studies lately as well in my sketchbook and am itching to post some on this site. I'm holding out until I finish the last 4 pages however, but it should be fairly soon.

Normally I don't post Original Character stuff to this blog anymore, but I felt it might be worthwhile this time. The character my friends chose to create, Rage, needed to be more developed so I went back to the concept during summer. When I asked her about it, she was pleased by the idea and listed several changes she wanted for the character. After making a list of changes as well as looking up some reference and research on the lore, I began with the ideations and finished with the renderings at the end. These were done about midway through July.

Digital Daily Doodles

As well as sketching during my trips, when I managed to stay at home, I tried to work on my digital painting skills by doing some daily digital sketches in Adobe Photoshop CS5. Below are some of the "doodles" I did in a span on an hour max. They're pretty crap now but hopefully if I keep doing them, they'll improve soon.

Summer Sketch Pages

 Wow what a long summer! Not only did I end up going to Malaysia, but took a road trip from Oregon, up to Canada and back for 2 weeks. Anyways, below are several sketches I made during the summer for places I went and experienced. Below are a few from that sketchbooks (will post more i've done during this semester later)

(Colors for this one are better in my Sketchbook)
