anthony jones master copy

i havent done much personal work in a long time, but sometimes i do these studies to keep learning. this is a master copy of one of the designers i've been following lately, anthony jones. apparently he does lots of master copies as well, so im sure he'd be cool with me doin one of him...

i kno i havent posted in forever.... master copy time

so it's been a long time since i've posted i know... i've been busy working at a small new industrial design firm called Soulcake. been so busy impressing clients and seeing the company grow, there's a lot of work i just havent been able to show. fortunately things have been going well. i've mostly been working in a different style and process for product design, so it's been quite a while since i've practiced my entertainment design technique.

to get back into it, i did a master copy of some guild wars concept art.. they have some more artistic, loose styles when it comes to concept art.

some stuff i did a couple months back

a while earlier i did some experimenting, trying to teach myself to develop forms thru abstract sketches. still kinda bummed that art center doesnt really have a good product form development class anymore so i try to learn as much as i can on my own. i tried designing a robot head starting abstractly and working it thru iteratively.

i still like robots as u can see...

some new sketches

no updates in a while since ive been organizing my portfolio. every time i stop doing sketches for more than a week, i feel like im goin to lose my skills... but then i pick up the tablet pen again and everything seems to b ok after all, thank goodness.

just having some fun scribbling and seeing if i can turn scribbles into furniture forms...

back to digital painting

first time digital painting in a while... taking a break from freelance product work over the past few weeks, and just working on my sketching and painting skills again...

actually it started as i tried to paint this ref and then i just added stuff over it... it turned into something completely different as u can see...

scribble scribble

venting out my solidworks frustration with this. it kinda reminds me of wen i was in kindergarden, i was coloring with crayons for the first time... and some kid called me out for scribbling. then the teacher told me to stop. and i was like, 'im not scribbling!!'

ppl still tell me to stop scribbling and stop sucking... but i guess now my response would be... 'screw you... im gonna scribble cuz i feel like it. and im gonna make u look at it too.'

painting on my new macbook pro is definitely better than my old macbook.. bigger screen, and i can work at a much higher resolution... perfect time to level up my skills!

form/style study, 3/5/10

created a form by putting down random lines... rendered it out a bit... trying to get less of a painterly style and more of a rendering style out of this brush.... same brush i used in the previous post....

my goal.. have better understanding of form, be better at style.. trans majors seem to have those things down.. time to step it up...

new coroflot portfolio!

i just uploaded some of my work up on coroflot these past couple days. its already been getting some pretty good feedback so far! its about time i put myself out there... ahh i just keep wishing i had more polished work to show off...

i really feel like im part of the new generation of designers now... especially seeing how much my sketch techniques differ from the old school designers... i learned those old school techniques from teachers, too... just that its different now that we're on the same playing field.

as part of the new generation i guess its my responsibility to push for new and better ways to design... wish me luck... and hope i dont starve to death cuz of my idealistic nature~
