Squash & stretch Practice! + Ed, Edd, N Eddy squash

Just doing a few practice sketches to get a feel of squash and stretch more and how it was used in "ed, edd, n eddy" The animators in that show do an awesome job showing that off. So I thought it was a good pick to draw and use as reference for my Banana King character. I have recently done some digital painting sketches of expressions for that character and will be posting the process from sketches to finished digital sketches when the page is filled up. So I plan to post a few pages in the near future

CCAD STUDIO DAY!

 3 hour still life painting in Photoshop 



   So this morning I attended studio day at CCAD and got to pick my top 3 electives. Animation was my first, but I didn't get the spot. so digital painting was my second. They had a still life set up so everyone that attended got to draw on the cintiq's. The class was 3 hours so this is what  I got done within that time frame.
  the "professor" lol nice saying that word, told us to draw over the picture.. even though we are looking at it. So I didnt understand that part but I went along with it. All and all it was an awesome time! I got free lunch and they reviewed my portfolio so it was a great opportunity.

The Struggle

 This is the first work of a series I plan to start up. About life and its Problems breaking you down to your muscle, and accepting failure is the pursuance of better work. So I want to tie in the  human muscle and the awareness of someone trying to achieve their goals in life. with goals comes struggle, I guess thats the word im looking for.. I want to show the struggle of life.


The Struggle: done in Ball point pen and acrylic paint

UPDATE! pics in progress and other works on the way!

I've been working on these two digital paintings for awhile, they are not finished!.But i've slowed down on digital and got back to making some pencil, and charcoal reduction drawings. im currently doing a wine bottle still life, thats in charcoal. and then pipes on a wall, with a  weird mannequin below it. Its going to be a two piece project and im using pencil.  



The monkey drawing is still in progress.  Im naming it Banana King ^.^ lol. Im going to have him in the jungle looking out at something.. but a river in the background and what not. im pretty excited to finish it. Also i may have what hes looking at reflected in his binoculars







This is another digital painting im working on in photoshop. its almost done. i just did to touch it put and make it brighter. also may put something else in it. This woman that reviewed my portfolio said i should start painting realistic backgrounds and throw in some of my characters..so i've kept that in mind and may actually do it!!


Any tips or suggestions would be awesome!
