So here's what I did this weekend:

I had to design a Halloween mask based on some sort of religion, mythology, culture, historical movement, etc for my "Creative ID Process" class. I ended up going for the black plague, basing my mask off of plague doctors, which I had never heard of before, who basically dressed up like birds and wore primitive gas masks during the European plague.

Anyway, here is the final rendering for it:

Here is the "callouts page", which explains some of my design choices. I also did a bunch of design work/sketches that are not shown here.

Thanks for looking!

What have I been up to?

I figured I should add to this, as I have been dormant for a little while. Here's some stuff that I have been working on for My VisComm (Visual Communication) 3 class at Art Center. We are focused on rendering matte surfaces in photoshop:

A sketch I did out of abstract shapes - turned into a spaceship.

I took the same ship and put it into perspective, made a couple adjustments, then added some wear and tear. Rendering manmade forms is new to me...

My creature for my "Imaginatomy" class.

In an effort to find a more permanent solution to my image-hosting problem, I am hosting these through flickr. Hopefully this will prove to be a more successful.

Thanks for stopping by.

Color Corrected Work

In order to counteract blogger's bizarre desire to desaturate and lighten my piece, I had to artificially saturate and darken in in photoshop, and upload it several times until I got it looking right on the web. What you see here is a little closer to the original intention of the piece (although still not completely identical). Hoping to have a more permanent solution soon.


Portfolio Part II -- Unrelated and Personal Work

Here is everything else that I submitted to the Entertainment Design committee at Art Center that was unrelated to my Robin Hood redesign project (with the exception of a couple of pages that I added in later). Most of these are just bits-and-pieces of classwork and personal work: anything that I felt best showcased my abilities.

*EDIT: It seems that Blogger messes with the colors of my images when I upload them. This is most unfortunate, and I will be looking for a solution in the near future. In the meantime, please bear with me.*

I hope to have more entertainment/concept-art related color-work in the near future!


Portfolio Part I -- Robin Hood Redesign

Here is my redesigned take on the classic "Robin Hood" story, set in a retro-futuristic alternate reality. This was used as an entrance portfolio into the Art Center College of Design's Entertainment Design major: a program that only 20 people a year are accepted to. I was fortunate (and hardworking) enough to make the cut.

This was all produced in approximately 6-8 weeks, and the focus of it was primarily design. Basically, the portfolio-review committee stressed that they wanted to see as many design variations as possible, with less emphasis on "finished product" or detailed painting/rendering. We were asked to redesign the characters, creatures, props, vehicles, and environments from start to finish of a classic fairytale or story. Hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I did making it!
