animal sketches

Here are those animal sketches from the Bean Museum that I mentioned in my last post.

Eternal Damnation never looked cuter

I was sketch booking stuffed animals in the Bean science museum on BYU campus, when I couldn't help but notice so many cute kids running around with their parents chasing them. I thought to myself, "little devils", and then started sketching.

figure drawing 12_04_10

It's rare for me to be satisfied with the work I do. This figure drawing, however, makes me feel like I'm finally showing some improvement.

We're studying drapery in Bob Barrett's class. Here's what I came up with. I know the left hand is missing, but give me a break. It was a short class.

Juanjo Guarnido Emulation- character and environment

Emulation assignment where we have to emulate an artist and create our own character and environment using it. For mine, I emulated the great Spanish comic book artist, Juanjo Guarnido. By emulating his work, I re-created the moment in the Roman Empire where Emperor Titus returns in triumph from the sacking of Jerusalem. Guarnido is best known for his anthropromorph characters from "Blacksad" so I did an anthropromorph version of the Roman Empire. (Titus is the tiger). I also tried playing with perspective a little bit, since we could all use a little work on that.

"Dracula" drawings

This semester, I had the privelege of doing art for a production of "Dracula" held here in Utah Valley. The production included voice actors who did a performance based on Orson Welle's script for a radio production of "Dracula". During the performance, my drawings, along with the art of two other artists, were projected on a screen as the actors performed. It was a lot of fun to work on, but nevertheless, very time consuming. Here are some of the drawings I did.


My animal drawings for Ryan's class; tried to rely on the work of the almighty Claire Wendling as a good resource. It was great help alright; made me realize just how much farther I need to go.

Latest figure drawings 10_14_10

I've had the very fortunate opportunity this semester to take figure drawing classes from the great Bob Barrett. The man is a genius not only with drawing and painting, but with explaining concepts in art. I really feel like I've made an improvement in my art over the little time that I've been taking from him, so I thought I'd post some of my latest figure drawings. Some of these are from Bob's class, while others are from outside of class.
