Comet Chaser (Color Test)

     This is my initial color test to get a feel for the colors/values. I'm still tinkering around with things, but for the most part these are the colors i'm going to use. Initially I was going to make the seagulls part machine, but it ended up looking dumb, so I let them be real birds. Any comments/critiques are more than welcome!

Baby Fur (Alex)

     This is my initial character design for a story called "Baby Fur" that I am working on for a narrative illustration class. My story is about Alex, a 2 year old boy who turns into a werewolf. I know because of the "twilight" series everyone is sick of hearing about werewolves/vampires but, I thought making him a baby would put an interesting twist on the story. Plus, I've never seen a story about a baby werewolf before. This illustration shows both sides of him. Most likely the character will change throughout the course of the semester but, this is my first shot. Comments welcome!

Comet Chaser (sketch)

     This is a sketch for an illustration I'm working on to look as if it could be a real book cover. I've included a version that has type on it to show what I'm talking about. As far as I know there isn't any book with that title/theme. I've wanted to do something steampunk for a long time. I'm way excited about the idea! I also get to do some interior spot illustrations along with it. Comments welcome!

     This illustration requires a bit of explanation. This illustration was based off of a random sentence derived from the word game titled, "exquisite corpse" (look it up). Basically it's a game where you write a word on a piece of paper and then fold the paper and pass it down the line. The next person doesn't know what you wrote and they have to write another word, and so on. Here are the official steps:

My sentence came out "A humorous Sasquatch graceflly remembered the crusty darts". I had to take a liberty or two on my illustration but I had fun nonetheless.

Comments Welcome!
