Concept Design - class work

Class Work from my concept design class, if the title didn't already make that obvious (oh ho ho). We are doing mock designs for Jack and the Beanstock, and I've done Jack's house, his mother, and the Maiden as well as some random pots and pans.

Our dark divide

A blech speed paint. Done in 30 min. I'm never the one to really do... depressing? artwork. It's not me. So I don't know where this came from XD.

This is a very big, pain inducing, patience exercise for me. I'm setting the standards quite high for this one... I'm really trying to push my painting ability here. There are a lot of things I need to fix... but after about... ten hours of painting this I figure I have all the time in the world. Wish me luck.

The Flying Mountain Turtle

The flying mountain turtle of Nevada is really something. Or at least, my mind tells me so. 

Speed paint, done in half an hour.

J.C. Leyendecker: One of the coolest gay guys ever -

I love this guy. Golden age illustrator like Norman Rockwell and stuff like that. I like to practice painting by doing copies of his paintings. You can credit mostly him for this one, but I did some other things differently just so i could get some knowledge out of it then just mindless copying. So, hope you all like.

In other news, this was also a rejected illustration for my work because the current banners I'm working on are very Leyendecker, but this came too close to copy right infringements, and I agree. XD so, nothing like practice.

Red Hot

Wow... I'm kind of on a roll today. 

Profile Face Paint

This picture was done straight into photoshop using the lovely cintiques that BYU has in many of our labs. It was just to pass the time, and there's stuff wrong with it, but when is there not, i guess. I did originally put hair on her, but she looked worse with hair then without. Good news for girls who shave their head. You don't look half bad. Or at least, this chick doesn't. 

Man cintiques rock. 

Painting Fail

It failed and then it didn't. There are so many things wrong with this... I guess that's what you get with practice.
