Trust me kid.

Eeeehhhhmmmm.... I don't really like the result of this one.
But I feel like uploading so I'll put it up anyways.

This was our final fall semester project for IL and it was to do a 5 panel sequential illustration with a twist at the end. Being the nerd that I am, I did mine about a a lonely guy that's out of love so he buys a cute dog.... to pick up chicks, but his plan backfires. :I

Anything goes

I thought I'd post one of my finished work that I did in my graphic novel class with George Pratt. I learned a lot and watched a lot of awesome movies, haha, even though my comics were aight.

This is a story I made up based on photograph references. Every panel I drew from a reference by Walker Evans, Bill Brandt, Moriyami and a few others. Really challenging but I think the story was pretty successful... I finished the ending at three in the morning so don't ask :I

3 Piggs Project

Group assignment for comp ill, we had to take the story of the three little pigs and change it however we want it. So a team member came up with the idea of three crazy sisters and suitor who gets "blown" away by them. The characters were designed by the same teammate that came up with the story, so this it the "movie poster". The characters were very interesting and fun to draw. In the critique I was told to give the characters more personality, which means I have to redraw everything. If I ever have time, which is unlikely, I'll fix it up.

Lyric illustration assignment, based conceptually (though I'm not too sure this is conceptual...?) off of the song Map the Soul by Epik High. A lot of problems needs a lot of fixing which I'll do later.

Past three illustration assignments >>

What I did during summer:

Meh. First project of the year always looks a little plain.
Done in Acrylic, bg edited in Ps Cs3

Fire and Ice:Conceptualized version of fire and ice. In the original painting the octopus was a pretty saturated red and orange, but in the critique I was told to change it so that the "fire" was in the eye. So a lot of editing was done in Ps, thanks a bunch to JHo for the help. I still owe you! :V
Originally... done in acrylic...

Editorial: Do you want to be your own boss?
Working at home... like a boss.

Eres Empanada

Package design project for my intro to graphic design class. This is the front of the box for chicken and beef empanadas. I was inspired by the Cuban cigar boxes, I actually used one for my mock up.
The chicken is actually a brush, that I forgot where I got it D: But the cows I drew myself... They look a little funky but there you have it.

All done in PS CS3

Reservoir Jaws Double feature

The Frog Knight

This is my fourth illustration assignment from last semester. Our assignment was to create a visual narrative containing these five elements: human form (the little boy), animal form (the frog), plant form (Grass and lily pads), inanimate object (boy's paper hat and wooden sword), and gesture (the frog's jump).

Sorry for the bad photograph.... D:
