Sprite Art


Yep, it's tiny. I have been playing around with sprite art, so of course, the first thing I do is Bitter Bunny giving a thumbs up! Woohoo!

Life Drawing :)





Sunday guest entry....very late at night entry, I still consider it sunday until I get up for work tomorrow...I mean today.


This is Angela again >:)

I have been going to figure drawing sessions with my mentor every other saturday. I will share a few images, if you will.
yes her head is too big...









These uploaded quite miserably tiny...sorry about that :/ .
oh, I guess I didn't see the size options...will fix a few now.



I also made something in response to the Tiger Summit project taking place in Russia in response to the little population of 3,200 wild tigers left on our planet. Hoping to see more people take interest besides just the 13 tiger populated countries. Also enjoyed an extra found on James Cameron's Avatar special edition related to his effort in Brazil concerning amazon water damns :).









I did the below one Friday night before I went to bed after sketching landscape :)



Goodnight, I need to sleep for work now...too bad Saskatchewan doesn't have snow days...the only snow days I get are no-bus-transportation days..I experienced one last winter...sadly I had no idea until I stood for an hour wondering why the buses still weren't coming.

99th Post!

So technically I'm the 99th post however due to some misunderstandings I created a little something for the 100th post sooo here it is anyway....something completely random....

**Update: Just wanted to make sure that everyone knows to click on the image for the actual piece.



I also did not make a cake but here's a picture of a cake that I bought (and partially ate).



Great job everyone! Let's keep it up!

The Lottery

Here is a Bitter Bunny comic I did the other day. I know lotteries are essentially a tax on people who have a poor understanding of odds and statistics; however, I still purchase a lottery ticket once in a while.

For the impatient reader... UPDATED!

There is virtually no chance that I will get this rendered in time to post tonight. I have been waiting probably over an hour for this SINGLE IMAGE to render! My computer DOES suck but also this is extremely high-poly and very shiney. I will hopefully have something to replace this with tomorrow.

(sorry for the lateness of this post! It has taken me probably an hour just to get a screen shot and to get this all typed and what not due to CPU usage!)

UPDATE!:

I think it got passed the really taxing parts and finished up quicker. Or it finished because I stopped trying to do so many other things!

I am modeling a Sopwith Camel for my 3D class. I finally went to my 3D class after a four week absence. I didn't go for weeks for various reasons, and I was quite behind-ish on this project. I basically did it all today (yesterday.)

It is not finished. I still have a couple things to add. Snoopy for one.

My Flea Market Find!


Yesterday, I went to a flea market that was happening near where I live. It was mostly antiques and collectibles, but one item in particular caught my eye. Yes, it is as awesome as you imagine. It focuses mostly on his early work in advertising and adventure comics. His work still manages to inspire and awe.

Animation table.

Since it is Sunday and does not require a post I felt this was a perfect time to show off my new animation table! My mom finally finished it.





It is reversible so I can situate the wheel on either the left or the right side of the desk. I still need to buy a clip on lamp and a light for the back of it. I just found some acme punched paper so I can get started sometime soon.

To The Death!


While at work, I came up with a picture of Bitter Bunny with a sword flying towards Harry. Unfortunately, I didn't have any paper at the time, so I sketched it out on my palm. And wouldn't you know it, by the end of the night, the sketch had worn off. But that's ok. I have a good memory.

Behold...

No use for a title

Working on some stuff that is not finished or I am not sure I should post. Here is a random sketch I drew while taking a break.

I am a slacker

As an apology for my slacking, and neglecting last week's post, I present to you a work in progress! I quite like Todd's character designs, so I threw together a quick character comp and started to make him run. As you can see, I have a ways to go on it. The movements are still very stiff, and there is almost no personality to it. But hey, not bad for only 2 hours of work put into it so far.

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday...

Since it's free-for-all Sunday and I did some more drawings, I figured I'd post 'em. It's not like anyone else is using this space...

Toy Story 3, The Secret of Kells, & Kick-Ass

This post has nothing to do with those movies. I just watched them all this week and they were good. I'd recommend them.

Anyway...

Twilight Princess



I have been slacking off and playing Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess too much lately. So for this weeks post I was drawing some Midna. She is difficult to draw because her proportions are weird.
The fancy coloured one is from a screenshot reference. I had more and the ones here were more complete but I didn't save before a computer crash.

KatnRye

On our road trip to Canada before Vanarts, Ryan and I decided to create a blog to document our trip and it was katnrye.com. This is something that I recently drew inspired by it.

That blog's been quiet for some time now. It's definitely time for more adventures or at least more documenting of adventures.
