blob sisters?



Decided to give the blob brush another go. Hated it previously. Though this is just a sketchy-doodle and could use a lot of cleaning, I have to say were I needing to do hair like this in illustrator, the blob brush is waaaay faster then the pen tool.

... yes, I do also like re-coloring things. It's fun.

In other news, since I apparently forgot to post about it here, my website is up. www.palomafarmer.com ... it's a lot of fun, go play with the 'game' I programmed and designed.

It works, it works! :) I can't wait to let you play with that little machine... until then, I just have to finish the rest of the site.

A little preveiw...



Some of the assets I'm working on for my portfolio website. The layout may change before I'm done, but one thing is certain; that blank field in the lower left-hand corner (or wherever else it may end up) is reserved for something pretty fun. :)

Remember some of my portfolio work can be found, for now, at palomafarmer.deviantart.com

I suppose I can't expect every day to be a good day for drawing cats.


In other news, unicorn / carnival horse?

Continuing the cat studies, this time from my imagination and reference. Pen, marker, and colored pencil on smooth sketchbook paper.

Something fun to play with!




I've uploaded the final assignment from my Illustration 3 class to my deviantArt account. :) It's good for a minute or two of clicking around, take a look! See how many different things you can find to interact with.

Here's the link :: Click me!

Working on this environment was really enjoyable, I hope to have the opportunity to do more interactive flash work in the future. It's really a great digital medium.

Temporary portfolio




Above: Some personal images I've been spending my daily hours on to complete. Although the style might be a little cliche, I have a fun time using bright colors and hard-edged shapes. The line-work could use much more refinement for a more professional appearance.

Until I can get a more complete website completed, I've created a deviantArt account to hold my work. It's located at http://palomafarmer.deviantart.com/.

Among other things, most of which were also on my Midpoint review fliker account, I've uploaded some artwork from my children's book illustration class. For the majority of that class we focused on a book illustration project, where we had to illustrate 6-8 pages of a story of our choice. I learned a lot of about the process of book illustration, and look forward eagerly to my next opportunity to do so. Knowing the process, I'm completely confident the next project will far exceed what I was able to accomplish in that class.
