Colored Psych Notes

Colored a few of em up after I got something to eat.
From left to right, the character to me just seemed to be some sort of desert nomad and following suit, nabbed some desert colors from a photo and gave him some earthy/sandy-ness.

The middle is Ká one of my older characters, been messing with her design as of late, mostly trying to figure out what works. Still sports her chinese palace red armor with aged gold highlights. Took a lot of the green jade areas out and left the shoulder ones, mostly to draw attention to her face area, and made her glowing eye a bit more wispy I suppose. I also cut her hair, no more flow-y long hair. Thought of it as a hassle lately, and liked the short'er' cut.

Lastly on the right I got my weird mummy/warrior/skeletor thing. Had some fun with the pose used diagonals in the body/spear and verticals in the draping cloak. I thought it turned out to be rather interesting. Got lazy with the shadows and gave him some glowing eyes, cause only the cool undead have those.

I really enjoyed these mini sketches, a lot less taxing on me than going through a whole process with a single piece. Hopefully I'll do more in the future.

Now to get some sleep...

Psych Notes

In between moments of lecture and notes, I did these up during my psychology class. Check out the colored version of some of these as well, I believe it's the post right after.

I won a contest!

Sadly, not for my art but for reading something correctly. Still a win is a win, anyways I entered a contest for Blizzard Entertainment way back in January, and today I find a box at my doorstep labeled the Shattering Contest, and inside I find a signed copy of the book by the author. First time I've ever won a real sort of contest, definitely a good feeling.

Back to school...

Since I have no real homework yet as my school week drags on I spent a few hours this afternoon painting. In an attempt to get better at breaking away from lines, I started out pure value. Which after mindlessly noodling I ended up with a rather white space suit/armor thing. Kind of like the Nasa get-ups the astronauts wear now...  at least color wise. So an orange helmet later I finished it up. Also below the original a slightly modified version I made for my facebook image.
