I am taking yet again another animation class! I am pretty excited about it. We are developing the story and everything for a short animation and then actually animating it! It should be pretty interesting. Last Friday I pitched my idea and this is one of the characters sketches from it. Sadly mine didn't get chosen. it was a little long and would have been hard to animate in the time that we have. so it's ok. I am excited about the project i am working on now! I have more art for this that i will be posting soon!

Let it begin! my idea for my senior studio is to work on a portfolio that will be used directed towards a specific video game company. I will be working at trying to make it look like im already working there ha ha. my first stage is to work on a monk character class! i am referencing the Buddhist monks! I dont know at all where i am going with this yet. i am currently doing studies of real life monks and learning about them to get at better feel of what i can do with this character. i am also going to be doing a few environments for starting areas/place of origin! So I am excited about this guy and where i am going with it! more to come soon!

So I am back at Hasbro for another internship doing intellectual property development which ranges from character design to environments to logo design to some story elements plus a lot more. My department's focus is mainly on the entertainment side of Hasbro aka their movies, tv shows and video games which is awesome! I love working here! The people/environment make it a really fun place to work at. Plus I get discounts on Nerf guns and other hasbro toys! ftw :) So I am out in Rhode Island now and the first few pictures are of me and my buddy Justin driving out here.
More art work coming soon! :D

Recently the College for Creative Studies had their annual end of the year art exhibit and I had over twenty pieces up on a wall! It was awesome! Sadly they already took it down but if you are in the area you can head out to the Summerset Mall where one of my pieces is still up for another week along with a some of my fellow CCS illustration buddies! It is definitely worth checking it out! :D
I went out to California a few weeks ago and visited a bunch of studios/met up with a lot of amazing people! It was awesome! I rented a car and ended up driving up to San Francisco from LA and back in two days! It was craazy! Thanks to everyone who took the time to talk to me/let me stay at their house! :D I can't wait to go and adventure some more out in California!
PS. The first pictures are of Ninja Warrior that me and friends ended up being in the audience of. The third picture is of the waterfall in Eaton Park that I hiked to. The fourth one is above the Hollywood sign that I hiked up to twice in one day. The fifth and sixth pictures are of the beach in Daly city and ended up hiking all the way down to the beach. And the final one is me eating ramen in Little Tokyo in LA. :D

This is one of the main characters for the story I am working on! She is a summoner and the little wood guys are tree spirits! I want to do this for all my main characters of my story so you will be most likely see more orthos and action poses soon! :D
These are a bunch of body type studies! I wanted to really venture off and mess around with different body types and color pallets to help me improve my shape and color variety with my character and creature designs! I enjoyed doing these and really like the way the different color pallets came out!
