Illustration Friday: Chicken

So since I am going to work at Disney World and am not sure when I will get a job illustrating. I am going to start participating in Illustration Friday. Every week will be a new illustration.
This will be my first entry. It was something quick that I thought to do. It was great to explore my option here as well.

My Brother the Lizard

This was a Christmas gift for my brother, he asked for an animal that represented his personality. I then tried to think of the different attributes that he had in common with the creatures that I knew. I finally settled on an iguana. Mainly because of his laid back personality and his love of the sun and the beach. I am happy to say he loved it and I enjoyed making it for him.

Toadz, Storyboard

So this is the Storyboard I created for Toadz, this project was for my Narrative Illustration class. I had a fun time creating it, we had to use index cards and create 50 key frames for the story we chose. I used the portion of Toadz, where Armide goes to seek Apprenticeship from the witch of Hansel and Gretel, Granny Ginger.
This was also the first time I ever used prisma color markers to this extent and I thought it turned out quite well.

BFA Final

Here is my BFA project, at least the storyboard of my project. It took me at least 8 months to create and a lot of patience not to give up. The story is based off the Brother Grimm's tale. In the project I mixed two cultures together, of Asian and European. This project is directed at promoting myself as a story artist and an illustrator, therefore I am targeting the two fields of publishers and film. This project took forever to create and was a lot of work, my teacher even said that I had the most finished illustrations that has ever been seen in the BFA program. I think it was worth it and I really enjoyed myself.
