Guess Who?

It's been awhile, but I made this guy last weekend! I wanted to try making a paper frame again - I haven't been able to find a shadowbox type frame that is deep enough without feeling bulky, so I think I'll keep making them for now.

The Pomegranate Seeds

I used to love reading my mom's old copy of Tanglewood Tales, and "The Pomegranate Seeds" was one of my favorite myths to read. I'm doing some designs of the story for fun, here are some of Persephone:

Brownstones to Red Dirt

This postcard is going to be part of an auction, with proceeds going help the children of Freetown, Sierra Leone and Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn!

From the website:

"Two colleagues at Blue Sky Studios, David LaMattina and Chad Walker, have created a feature-length documentary about a pen pal program between a group of at-risk sixth graders living in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn and orphans from the war living in Freetown, Sierra Leone. This Postcard Art project is an extension of the their film "Brownstones To Red Dirt" which features children from both schools. The kids in both places have inspired us all to want to do more and so we're putting together an art auction of original postcards based around the same central theme of the film in a fund raising effort to build a school for the orphans in Freetown, Sierra Leone and create a library for the youth at their school in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn."

For more information:

Maddie's Monsters

This is my extra assignment for the final lesson:

I'm probably going to make a few more tweaks, but I thought I'd post it. This class has been great and I've learned a lot from the lessons!

I finished the last assignment! We were given a pencil sketch of the creature, and for assignment 8 we had to do a rough color/lighting sketch. So this is the final piece!

Now I'm working on finishing up my extra assignment.

Lessons 7 & 8

Here are some more assignments from the class I'm taking. This first image was from the assignment. We were given a sketch of the cactus to start from, and used vectors and textures to make this piece:

Then I decided to try the project again with a sketch I did awhile ago. It was fun!

This was the next assignment - the first part of a two part assignment. We were given a sketch of the bigfoot, and had to put in the color scheme and rough lighting. For the next project we will be finishing this color rough.

I wanted to try the lesson again with my own idea, so this is what I came up with. I will finish this piece along with the bigfoot for the final assignment!

I'm excited!
