Across the Universe Speedpaint

Just film speedpaint studies for homework. Never watched the film tho but it looks interesting. I like the last one for its expressive brush stroke haha. I wish I had better color sense.

117 life studies

I guess the fun thing about these studies is going out and looking for these old signs I never really paid attention to. My dad and I drove all the way from SJ to Mountain View just on El Camino Road. Quite the adventure. Now I cannot unsee old signage. Lovely designed compared to the ugly signs we have today that are boring. When I do renders for work, i think texturing is the fun part of it when I have the time.

My first drapery study! I never took Sheldon's advance class so I never got the chance to sit and study drapery. However, turning off the light with only the light source on the drapery and from my monitor, my eyes were practically going blind. This semester, I think my eyesight just worsen a lot.

Art 116 Illustration

Set built for the characters. We tested different lighting. I decided to combine the two.
Color Comp in PhotoshopFinal painting in Acrylics. 14x19

Barron Storey's Conceptual Illustration project. We had to create 6 characters based on ourselves, design an environment they live in, and then make an illustration of a climatic moment. Very fun. I would love to use the characters again if I ever make my own story haha. Characters/Story is a blend of Chinese/WW1/1930s culture.
