I am a December 2013 graduate of Tusculum College with a Bachelors of Art; Studio Art Concentration. I am twenty-three years old, and only just beginning the journey of being an artist. I am looking forward to finding out where this journey will take me and who I will meet along the way. I hope you enjoy my work, while I'm at it! Thank you for taking a look at my page.

If 18 or 20 palettes wasn’t enough, I present to you: my 100 Palette Challenge! This is a collection of some of my favourite palettes from color-palettes and Adobe Kuler and I thought it would be really fun to have a huge variety of palettes to chose from
If you would like to participate in this challenge, I ask that you DO NOT repost this anywhere else, including deviantART; please REBLOG this instead! I have the challenge uploaded to deviantART as well, so please check it out there if you want to do it on deviantART!

Tuesday tips — Costume Design 101.

Costume design is a very important part of character design.  It tells you a whole lot about your character; ie. age, personality, what she/he likes, time period, strength, … etc.  It supposed to enhance a character’s personality.  

Here are my process in tackling costume design.

1.  Find a good reference.  Inspiration is key!

2.  Look for a good shillouette that is recognizable and different from other characters.

3.  Pick one shillouette and find smaller shape within.  Do tons of variation and have fun.

4.  Color variation.  Use variation the same color combination for all the design.  Keep it simple!

5.  Finish up and have fun.  It will also a good idea to think of texture and material.

Dad caught this gorgeous corn snake for me last night while I was at work, as a surprise for when I got home this morning. So handsome! He was extremely healthy, too.. definitely over 5 feet long! Biggest wild corn snake I’ve ever seen. 
This is my favorite photo from the little shoot I did with him before releasing him.. I’ve got a few more that show his patterning better, which I’ll post later after I’ve slept haha. 
I can’t wait until I can get a corn of my own~~

Suppose I should finally get around to posting this, haha! Remember this WIP I posted a while back? Yeah, the one I didn’t finish in time for critique? xD Well! It did finally get finished, I was just lazy about photographing it. I really need to get a scanner though, ugh.. photographing artwork is not easy (especially if you do not have a setup specialized towards that…lighting, etc x.x).

Eugh, geez. Finally got my laptop/tablet working again - took me reinstalling the tablet driver twice and restarting at least 5 times, though. This poor old laptop won’t be able to handle the art thing for too much longer it looks like… Gonna have to start looking at some desktops soon. :<

Anyone have any good recommendations on desktop PCs that will mainly be used for digital painting (I prefer windows over mac btw, because money)?

Godzilla 2014 by Gareth Edwards.

I finally got to see this movie and I LOVED it. Sure, it has its stupid moments - but what movie doesn’t? I had a blast in the theater.. I was literally on the edge of my seat through the whole thing (I could barely contain my excitement). Seeing the big guy on the big screen was the absolute best experience. 

Godzilla himself is so spot on though.. I love the texture of his skin, how reminiscent it is of the old suit and yet it has its own character to it. I love the addition of gills. And god, I LOVE his chub.. you can feel his movements with each wiggle of fat. I’m so glad they kept him plantigrade, too! 

(spoiler?) The M.U.T.O were also fantastic! I really enjoyed their designs - and especially the differences between the male and female. I love that they (and Godzilla, too) were all depicted as though they were just animals surviving… they weren’t necessarily trying to destroy the city, the city just happened to be in the way. I love that they never really made eye-contact with a human until near the end there. 

But my absolute favorite part of the entire movie were the sounds they all made oh my god. Such a good job, sound team!!!
