Here are a few more pieces from my media class. The love birds were an acrylic sand off technique and the moose and the owl were done with gouache and ink.


These pieces were also done in acrylic. The full view of the pig was done in an acrylic/gloss medium sand off technique and the pig head was done with a packaging tape technique.


These are a couple of the acrylic pieces that I did for my media experimentation class this semester.

This is my illustration friday assignment for last week. I like the character quite a bit and would like to develop it further. I wish that I would have had time to add more to the composition, but I am pretty pleased with it so far.

Here is my illustration friday assignment for "crash". I decided to draw crashing waves. Our assignment was to use photoshop and include textures. The texture that I used was created with matte medium and a stiff bristle brush.

This is another experiment with photoshop. I wish that I had more time and energy to put into it, but it was fun. I am hoping that all of the time that I spend in the computer lab one day helps me.

This is my illustration friday assignment for the topic "sprout". It was an adventure figuring how to work with line, brushes, and texture. I wish that I would have been able to put more time into it, but here it is.

This is a really quick study that I did to experiment with digital painting and drawn line. I really like the line drawing. I need to figure out how to work with the brushes, but I am having fun.

still life numero dos

Today we were introduced to the world of art brushes in adobe illustrator. We were asked to experiement with the tools. This is what I came up with. I am pretty excited to learn more about illustrator because I still feel limited in my abilities to render digitally. I am excited to come up with some brush strokes of my own.
