New York

I visited New York this weekend and brought my sketchbook along. I did the drawings below as well as some really bad life drawings that prompted me to go back to drawing in big sketchbooks.

One of them looks like Tangled. I’m actually really obsessed with Eyvind Earle’s designs for Sleeping Beauty, so I roughed that drawing out with Earle in mind before boarding my bus. I do have Glen Keane’s pencil drawings for Tangled pinned up over my desk, that might explain the Disney’s Rapunzel girl.

I borrowed Jon’s Once Upon A Time In The West DVD. So good!

Sword Fight

I haven’t let my apartment in days (with exception to a Starbucks run each day to keep me sane) because of all the work I have to do. So I’ve been watching movie after movie. Guess which one I watched today! Well you probably can’t. I watched Pirates of the Caribbean. The fight scenes are my favorite parts, so I took a couple hours off my thesis work to do a quick illustration. I didn’t take time to check for tiny mistakes or research clothing and rock formations, so it’s not perfect but it’s pretty good for a couple hours.

Christmas Eve

My friend, Chin, did a Photoshop painting demo for me yesterday. I hope I only get better with Photoshop from here. I was trying to imitate Chin’s painting process, just to give it a shot. Thanks Chin!

I was really excited to see my schoolmate and friend, Anthony, using pixel art for his junior animation, and I was impressed with his color palette and animation style. I’m glad he uploaded it on Vimeo.

Today’s Christmas Eve, so I hope everybody’s at home enjoying the holidays with their family and friends. Merry Christmas!
