Monkey Suit

Howdy!

This is my entry to Unit-16 Character Turbo!  Basically the aim is to interpret someone else's drawing and then post one of your own for someone else to interpret.  Hand drawn and inked then brought into Photoshop.  I have been having a lot of fun playing and testing out textures and layer options in Photoshop lately.

The sketch above is the original concept which I interpreted.  It was great to do.  I wouldn't normally think of drawing a monkey.....

For other news, I spent this week animating some flash game elements and doing some freelance illustration.  Next week I start work at another studio where I will be making pre-production elements like assets and backgrounds.  I rarely do that sort of thing professionally so it's going to be a learning experience which I am looking forward to.  I am very fortunate to have gotten gigs so quickly after my last contract finished.  See how I go next week!

Hi, hi! 

How are things going?  Thought I would touch base.  My first week and a bit at work has been quite full on.  Lots of work to do for now.....will see how that goes.  Rob and I went to Sushi Jiro at the QV last weekend for some delicious sushi train.  We love sushi train.  I especially wanted to draw the scampi nigiri and the spicy salmon nigiri.

I also drew my fatty boombah kitty, Hanzo.  He is on a diet...but it's going to take time to lose weight, so he's still fat.  I need to lose weight too.  I really need to lessen my sugar and certainly exercise more. 

Working on some test animations tomorrow.  Should be good fun!

IF: Burning

Howdy!

This is my illustration for Illustration Friday and the theme is Burning.  I wanted to do something simple with bold colours and I went for "burning passion" and why not?  I think it's the type of burning most people wont mind at all.  This was illustrated in Flash.

I bought two awesome fashion books today: Dreaming of Chanel and Dreaming of Dior.  I would definitely recommend them!

IF: Mail

"Peggy was so surprised when she discovered that........"

This is my submission for Illustration Friday: Mail.  Thought I would leave it open ended for everyone else to fill in the blanks.

I haven't been able to submit for two weeks because of freelance work and it feels so nice to have something up for this week.  I am still on fashion illustration mode and enjoying it a lot.  Done in Flash and tweaked in Photoshop.
