Beauty and the Beast

My take on the idea of Beauty and the Beast. :) finished!

This project went better than I thought it would. We were assigned to do a new take on the Beauty and the Beast idea for my digital illustration 2 class. This project was done all in photoshop, craziness! and I'm getting better and better at photoshop every day. Life is good.

2 Finished Art Pieces and a Study

Plein Air Midterm:
For this assignment we had to base a new landscape painting off of the studies we have done previously in class. I decided to take what I have learned and apply it to a Cliff Lake, Montana painting. (We go here every summer with my Mom's side of the family, it's a party and it's all about the fishing.) 

Senior Studio 1: For this piece I was assigned to illustrate a folktale or some story of that sort. I chose to do the Indian version of Cinderella. Watch for revisions coming soon.

Illustration 4: Friday afternoon Study. We took a field trip across campus and painted the Maser Building. It's a watercolor study, done with my extremely cheap Crayola watercolor paint. :)

Finished Buffet Piece and a sneak peak

Finished Buffet Piece. Title: Not Quite

This is my current project in digital illustration 2. It still has a lot of work but this is my early black and white comp. The abominable snowman and the adorably frightened ski girl.

Leaves, Food family, Grandness, Rough Comps, and a New Job!?!!!

Well it's a new week! :) I've been truly busy this last week. Here is a look at some of the things I've been doing.

Illustration 4: Plein Air Painting Class. We went up to South Fork Canyon and painted the beautiful leaves this last Friday. My fingers might have frozen off, and it was super windy but I did get to watch Richard Hull paint and that was awesome. As you can tell I am still learning. I haven't quite caught on to the entire concept yet, but I'm still getting closer. 

A couple of Sundays past: Church doodles. This is the food family. :) 

The Grand Canyon: I worked on the shadows on the left side of my painting today. Fours hours later and one step closer to being finished. I'm thinking I might just pull an all nighter in the HFAC and finish it off.
 Senior Illustration Studio 1: We are now working on myths. I've decided to create an illustration based on the American Indian legend of Cinderella. These are some of my thumbnails and my very rough comp. I need to get that reworked and some color studies done, but that can be a project for tomorrow.
I got a new job! Hooray! (I'm not going to be doing snow removal all winter,  in the middle of the night.) I applied for a job at the Riverwoods doing graphic design for the Provo Beach Resort, and they hired me! I'm going to be doing any sort of graphic design that they need from signs to posters. SO today I quickly did for a promotion for Ike's. I'm excited to have a new job and to be working with something art related. 

Beauty and the Beast: For Digital Illustration 2 we all have to do our own take on theme Beauty and The Beast. These are my very rough thumbnails. I'm thinking that I really like the abominable Snowman and his little ski girl friend on the a very tipped ski lift idea... Look for more development on that idea maybe next week. 

As you can see, life as an Illustration major at BYU is crazy busy! I have so many art projects and things to do it's, well crazy. Good thing I love it. :)
