Plan Ahead...

Incomplete and probably won't go back to it. Promising myself I will never render out characters fully before starting the background. The contrast of values is way too high for the background I had in mind. Low key figures on a high key background = recipe for disaster. Sigh. At least it was a good test with the Rembrandt palette.

And Mr. Mayerson really put me up on a little too early, though not really much of a problem. Thanks!

Sheridan Portfolio 2009

Found these laying around for awhile so I edited an old redundant post in exchange of putting my entrance portfolio for everyone to see.

As a backstory, as far as I know from asking around, I received the lowest mark of the year before my appeal for a reevaluation (rank 25 on the waiting list). This means that anything here is literally the minimum anyone should possibly aim for.

Based on a True Story...

...despite how stupid it seems to be. You can't make this shit up, quite honestly.

This was an excuse to use some of the designs I had in mind after studying a bit of fashion. Based on my previous post's chart, this will garner 10000 views on Deviantart!

Changes will be coming. I'll be posting this in the Critique Center at soon.

EDIT: Added atmospheric perspective on the electric fan, made the cloth on her head more obvious, and added motion blur to the fan (not sure about this one).

EDIT2: Made the colours dance a lot more. EDIT3: More dancing...

Funny Picture

I didn't make this though it sums up why I'm not the biggest fan of DA.

Walking the Bear

Just trying to apply some of the concepts in the lectures... One of the few pictures I did not completely wreck with adjustment layers.

I didn't really bother with details because I realized how cartoonish the colours were midway the process and didn't like it. Learned a thing or two, but now it's time to move on.

Quick Sketch

Juggling between Vilppu,'s Colour Theory lecture, and the Art of Composition lecture has left me with little time to actually screw around Photoshop. I decided to do something fun in awhile.
