Portrait practice

Forgot to post, some portrait paintings from earlier in the summer before I was driving everywhere. Bottom 3 are master studies.

I've just gotten back from one of the coolest experiences of my life, SummerArts! I met and got to know a ton of awesome people, learned more about my craft (also that I'm terrible at ultimate frisbee), visited the aquarium, and had a blast!

We spent two weeks creating a character and then animating them in a scene (or in some cases, short films!) The first few days were spent finding a character from acting with masks, and from there, we began to create our characters. Mine ended up being an overzealous movie usher who is waaaaay too into his job.

Some doodles and my modded rig (Malcolm from AnimSchool)

After two weeks, 12 hour days, and critiques from our guest artists Rob Thompson and Ryan Woodward and coordinator Aubry Mintz, I had this (still very much a WIP) animation to show for it!

I'm super proud of what my classmates and I accomplished in such a short amount of time, and I can't wait to keep working on this piece, I had so much fun learning on it.

Also, Monterrey Bay Aquarium doodles!

So glad I got to have this experience. Thank you guys!
