Lady Luck

So I went to a sketch night after arriving in Seattle with a couple of friends and this is what I drew.  I think the people in the group were probably wondering how I got in, and I probably embarrassed the friend who brought me, because everybody else was doing wannabe conceptartz.org stuff, and I was doing my usual lanky hour-glassy monstrous lady-person:
I did mean to go in and darken up the whole background, but one cannot remember to do everything...

United We

This is the piece that made it into Best of Ringling this year.  It started in Bronze casting, but it took so long I had to finish it my last semester at Ringling.  :)  I gave the larger half of the piece to my mother and father as a thank you gift for all their help over the years, the single bird remains with me, as a reminder of what I am supposed to do.

A little doodle :)

Joe's been doing more painting lately and the cintiq was set up yesterday so I pulled out an old piece and finished it up.  I am hesitant to put it up here, but I like it... and with the packing and finding a house... I've been really busy, :) so I'm happy to be making a post.

Update to the Demo Project, also Hedgehog zBrush

Still trying to post the last of my stuff from school, here's an update to the Demographic project, the piece is nearly complete now, though I am not sure I have the resources I need to finish it yet.  Sometime soon I hope,

 Also, here is a model from zBrush, it's a squeaky-toy hedgehog, complete with girly and boyish options:

 So, our last project for conceptual practices was a campus-wide group installation.  We made white dangerous animals and placed them all over the school.  I ended up with snakes so I did some sand graffitisnakes on the path and one soft sculpture snake in the tree, all of the snakes on the ground are traveling in the direction of the snake in the tree.  My hope was that people might follow the snakes along to the central snake but I was installing in the morning before my 8:30 class and I had to waitfor the groundskeepers to come through so I didn't get as many snakes on the ground as I would have liked.

Sci-Fi Final for Advanced Media

The Sci-Fi piece had to be acrylic and framed, but there was little else in the way of requirements so I decided to present the live stars of PostapoCatlyptic.  Wrench is returning home to her rooftop and discovers a cat.  I have a basic story, I need to do a page-layout and script but I am excited to work on this project, it's gonna be good.

Senior Illustration Show

Here are a few photos from the Senior Illustration Show.  I tried to present both sides of my illustration faithfully.  The cheerful and frivolous on the left and the more serious SCOTUS portraits on the right.
