Here are the rest of the characters from my Baby Fur story. This style is completely new to me still and I struggle with it a little bit. But, I'm satisfied with how these turned out. Comments Welcome!

I spent some time this weekend gathering reference and doing some research for this painting. It was brought to my attention that pandas are only native to China. I learned something new! Most everything in my image was interchangeable, all except for the panda. Plus, the girl that I had model for my reference photos is Chinese. So, I decided to change it to a Chinese themed illustration. I had a lot of fun doing research on trees and architecture, etc. I'm still playing around with color trying to get it to feel a little more natural. But, the basic palette isn't going to change. I still haven't thought up a title for this piece. But that's not all that important at this point. Please comment!

I've been working alot on the redesign of my werewolf baby character for my narrative illustration class. I don't have alot of experience with a "cartoony", line driven style. So, I thought i'd push myself a little. In this class our character is supposed to resemble the medium in which he will be produced. My character, for example, is eventually going to be a 2D animation. So, I designed him to be functional in that environment. Enjoy!

I was curious to see what my book cover illustration would like like... well... on a book. Since i'm all hooked up with Maya (thanks to the new 3 year student license) I made a book in Maya :) Here's a virtual rendition of what my cover illustration would look like. It's a low quality render but I thought it was kinda fun. The text isn't anything special, it's mostly for placement. Maybe someday I'll actually design some real text for the book. In the mean time this will suffice.

Well, after a couple months of work my website is finally up and running!! I cannot take all the credit, however, because I had a good friend of mine (Miles Leach) do all the web coding. I designed the visuals and he made them functional. It's still in it's infant stages and will most likely evolve over the years. But this is my first official website and I am very happy with how it turned out.
