Angry Dojo

I have been charged with coming up with some designs for the main character! Sadly, that hasn't been going well, and I have just been throwing random stuff into my sketch book to see what works. I am not ready to show that stuff. For now I am doing a little concept art for the game.


Its not pretty, but its a sketch. I am still changing stuff. 
I want this done soon so I can move on to seriously getting that character done ha ha. 

Plans

No art work for this post, just a short run through of my plans for the summer. I have many things I wanna get done by the end of summer. Mainly because I know when school begins, I can only handle a good 20 % of all the things I want to do. Most if not all of my attention during school is on my art classes and everything else just kinda drifts into nothingness. Therefore this summer is my chance to gain about 13-15 years of mileage i am missing compared to the people around me.

First, as far as gaining mileage! I am currently trying to get at least 1 or two speed paintings done every day. I am also going out and plein air painting every chance i get. It seems that with the current work schedule and other projects, I should be able to do 2-4 a week. I also have to step up my game for figure drawing as I am very behind! I need to be so much better than I am right now if I have any chance to pass the portfolio review next semester.

I am also a part of a few other projects this summer.
1.I am a part of a group called Angry Dojo. This is a group of artists, a writer, Musicians and programmers and we are making a music album, and a video game to follow that story portrayed on the album. The game in particular will be episodic. We are still in the planning stages. We have a story for the first few episodes and we are currently designing the main character for the game. from there we should have a better understanding of the style and we can progress from there! I am also producing a bit of concept art for the game right now. Check out my next post!  ha ha, I'll put up the line art. Check out more info on the game and the music on the tumblr page: doomsdaymachines.com/

2. Another project that is happening this summer is a short film. We currently have a team of 17 people and we will be having many long nights in the animation lab! We will be entering the film into the digital media competition for imagine cup 2012! http://www.imaginecup.us As of now, we are trying to come up with stories we could portray that would show some way to better the world.

3. I am also making a video game with my good bud David Do. davidthedestroyer.tumblr.com We also plan to enter this game into imagine cup 2012 in the video game competition. More details soon. We are still throwing around ideas!

4. I started playing DND and I believe we are planning to begin a little comic based on our adventures ha ha. Should be fun :)


O I also have a job. Must go to that twice a week.

WOW thats a lot! wish me luck guys! I'll post some updates on the different projects here and on doomsdaymachines.com/

speed paint ..... rawr

I spent a good 2-3 hours on this, on accident >_< I just got so caught up in making stuff right that i forgot the timelimit. and here I am... unsatisfied sighs!!!!! lol... Chris Sanchez stopped me from doing anymore to it ha ha.... Wow i spent way too much time on this... anyway here it is. I kinda started it at 2:00 am yesterday and continued working on it at 6 pm.... o well, lesson learned. a speed paint is a speed paint if it has a TIME LIMIT!


HEY RENA :D

6/2

I missed a day o darn, i didn't stop drawing though! ha ha, on the first i went to a figure drawing session at Cogswell! It was pretty fun to get back into figure drawing! I really missed it >_< I haven't really gone back to figure drawing since Sheldon's class ended and I started seriously working on my 112a illustration so it was fun  to get back into it. I didn't really like anything i did, but i realized how far I've fallen, and I'm going back and studying now to get back into the figure drawing groove. I'm going to start going to the SHM figure drawing sessions starting on the 14th! I cant wait :D. Cogswell figure drawing was really cool though! all of their poses were short.  they started the night with 10 second poses and i believe he longest poses were around 5-10 min long. I really enjoyed it. There is just something about short poses that doesn't let you over think your drawings. You take it slow, and even your short poses come out pretty well. Like I said, I am not particularly proud of my stuff from the session, but its a first step to getting back in the groove!

1min poses

I also did a speed painting today from a photo Jonathon Apilado sent me as reference for another illustration Im working on. I need the sunset as reference, but i decided to take the chance and see if i could do a speed painting for it. I kinda cheated with the eye dropper in getting the base colors from the photo, but I was really focusing on getting used to blending in Photoshop. I had been having trouble with the pen pressure on my tablet and I finally figured it out!!!! Damn out of date driver!! >_< sigh!!!!! o well, half a day wasted but its cool, I'm not mad about it ha ha.........



I also did a plein air painting at school, same spot, different view. I FAILED SO BAD. I'm not putting it up! its been a bad gauche day. still fighting the medium. ugh, why cant we be friends gauche! You're so nice to other people, why not I~~!!! ha ha

5/31

I went plein air painting today. This would technically be my first one. I was fighting the medium a little bit too, just cause i'm still not used to gauche. After I finished the painting, I also did a perspective drawing of the scene. I learned a lot from this attempt.


The weather was so weird! It was very cloudy and the lighting was erratic! There were very few cast shadows. I remember as I set down my brush to end the painting. The sun peered out from behind the clouds to show more defined shadows and values changes. little too late i suppose. I would have gone back and changed it, but the sun only hung around for a short minute before leaving us once again. 

the scan came out badly >_<
