"The Brand New You" DONE -for now-

---Am I kool now? -FinaL---

For my Digital Illustration collage assignment.

The assignment is based on the article we read, called "The Brand New You", which talks about our society's obsession with brands and labels.

I don't think this came out too well... I had tons of headaches... such as layer management... I mean I used close to 40 layers... I think ^^;

Apple Still Life-- digital

My first speed painting wasn't very speedy... ack :P

Another piece for Digital Illustration. We had to get really up close and personal to a piece of fruit (or vegetable) we picked and digitally paint it.

A lot of prep work went into this: 15 thumbnails, color and value studies... naa, I looks cool though.

I'm rather proud of this piece though I know I'm gonna get pwn'd by everyone else on Tuesday... ^^;

The assignment was to go to and create an animation based on an artist with sound found on the website. I picked "Birdcalls" (God knows why...) by photographer Lousie Laweler.

This assignment is about 1 minute and 30 seconds of hand drawn animation, full of composting, over layering movements, and 3 extremely annoying women making bird calls for no apparent reason.

The original animatic:
