Hey, this will probably be my last update until mock exams are over. Doodles done in text books and such. A little (dare I say it...) Hetalia fanart of adorable lil' Pre-revolutionary Russia and a sketch done in my Japanese book of a character i'm still trying to figure out, havin' fun with Hue and Saturation in Photoshop.

Scanned n' colored a drawing done in the last few minutes before leaving the resturaunt.
Okay, so I have this thing for drawing mythological figures and well, here's a digitally colored in pencil drawing I did after reading the Wikipedia article on Shiva. He's a major Hindu deity and is often portrayed dancing on top of Apasmara, the demon of ignorance. I got the impression he'd be a sort of whimsical and spacey—I mean, he's pretty much the mascot of psytrance from what I've seen. The colors are intentionally retinal burning. Hope it doesn't happen to offend anyone, Cya~

Maann, I gotta stop always updating on Sunday nights. Anyways, I've been trying to make more visually interesting character designs and consider color schemes more, trying to move away from drawing 'generic' things. School, or maybe just Economics assignments and Japanese presentations, drain any creative energy, but I guess it'll be over all too soon so I better enjoy it while it lasts! 

Oh, and here's a sketch of a corner of my Japanese classroom. One of my peers wanted it, and since its scanned...

I finally got around to photographing (most of) my life drawings done during my month at the CSSSA Animation program. I did around 60+ drawings in life drawing class, of course not taking into account my sketchbooks! The drawings range from less than 5 min to around 15, and I tried to be selective and choose the ones I like most. 

For those of you that are unfamiliar, the life drawing at CSSSA is nothing like an average life drawing class. The models dress up and we were encouraged to use our 'imagination'. The teachers were incredibly helpful and inspiring and really forced us to create characters and scenarios out of the model in front of us, and consider design and composition as well. Whilst the cat handbag and plastic deer were actual props, I unfortunately must confide that the razor barbed hula-hoop was not. 

Apologies ahead of time for the snippets of our terracotta tile floor visible in some of the photos, but it was unavoidable.These are mainly in order of which sessions I did them. I hope nobody objects to me putting up a few of the portraits we did of classmates. If so, please tell me and i'll remove them. Click to enlarge the pictures. 

Continuous movement drawings.Yep, exactly what the name implies. 

The last two were done with tempera paints and involved some finger painting. xD

So CSSSA is finally coming to a close. It's been an awesome, eye-opening experience which i'll hopefully write about more later. I've been trying to create a character for a comic or something to work on in my spare time to achieve an actual goal in the long run, aside from school demands of course. I've already got a good background story and personality developing but its not so solidified that I can comfortably blab about him just yet. ;)
