Laafa open house.

Yesterday was one of those wonderful days that I think I'll remember for a long time to come. It was our atelier group's first official show. It was wonderful getting to meet the friends and family of all of my classmates, as well as seeing the finished product of our 10 weeks of classes. Here are some pictures I took of the event. I can only hope that our next gallery show is as fun as this one.
And yes it is in fact the 21st century, real men can carry roses.

Refined portrait.

Touched up the portrait of Erin in preperation for tommorow's faculty review. Hopefully it ends up in the student show. For some reason the camera picks up that weird dark streak in the upper left hand section. I had no idea what it is.

Eureka moment!

A picture I've just recently returned to after some time away from it. I'm going to use it to practice either my pasteling or watercoloring.

Another drawing of Erin.

This one is from our Tuesday academic figure drawing class. The one on top is a better quality picture, but the one on the bottom isn't cropped (can't help it scanner problem.)

Site_Size horse head.

From my Mid-week drawing class this Winter/Spring. A rewarding but trying class. Happy to be done with it.

Some old doodles from about a year ago.

Digging through my flash drive and I found some of these.

Hurray for nostalgia.

And yes that is a cat dressed like an Imperial wizard of the KKK. I clearly have a deep rooted prejudice against black people. Hah!

Testing this hideous new layout.

I guess the fact that I'm calling it hideous is all the answer I need.

My crumy Ecroche.

Yup so this is the end result of my anatomy class. It was a really informative class, and Rey Bustos is a really insightful teacher. I made a really bad sculpture though, can't say that I didn't try hard but it really is bad.

Christ on a Cross.

Which as my teacher and friend Ken Jones said is not a curse but this drawing by the Northern European, Rennisance master Albert Durer. Here's my copy of it for my faboulas Monday class Rick Morris (he's wanted us to call it faboulas for a long while.)

Animation Day.

On Tuesday night I had the absolute joy of hanging out with my former teacher Charles (of Animation Nation fame or infamy depending on who you ask), for Animation Day.

Animation Day is an anual event that Charles and his school put on every April fools day in order to celebrate art, the medium of animation, and to critique the industry. It was absolutely one of the most inspiring events I have been to in a long time. Seeing so many students working on their craft, and mingling was a sight to behold. As a student who is sometimes upset with the things he see's in the industry, I am happy to see that there are many people who are activaly trying to make the animation community a better place.
