Ringling Week 12: Attempting to eggagerate!

Here is a 2pt. perspective imaginary city scape with 3 robotic evil kickboxing monkeys trying to invade a city through the power of forest-o-vision, a couple of long poses, some 1-2 min gestures,and some shaded fruit.

I'm trying to get better at drawing movement in my figures and exploring caricature more.

Toy Project: The Magical Tree Man

Thank goodness this week is over! I finally recovered enough sleep from pulling 2 all nighters. This is my toy project for 3d design. We had a month to create the toy and the packaging. I probably spent over 100+ hours on it. The concept is a fantasy scene taking place in an apple orchard with a tree-man interacting with a forest nymph.

I chose to do a collectable figurine focusing on anatomy, contrast, and detail. My friend suggested that a great way to learn anatomy was through the sense of touch so I tailored the design of the toy to suit my pursuit of understanding of upperbody musculature. Also I learned a lot of sculpting techniques and photoshop techniques from making the box as well. I had a lot of fun doing this proect. Also I believe its good preparation for us CAs because we covered the basics of preproduction all the way to post production.

I posted some .PNG images for better quality so sorry if it loads for a few seconds!

Ringling Week 9-11 is over

Whew its saturday and finally have the time to update the blog again. These past 3 weeks have been really busy because of the toy project assignment for 3d design. I have a ton of figure work but I'm not going to spam. I'll just post a few things. Also, I realize I've been doing to much representational work and I need to exxaggerate movement more. So my attempt starts with some blue pencil gesture work from yesterday's FEWS session...
