Aesthetic Test

Here is an example of how my film will look when all is said and done!

I have changed Dumpling's colors a bit. Apparently, some people have trouble reading her as a pug dog. It was suggested that I play with the color of her muzzle and ears. what do you think? More readable this way???

More animation! More!

Some more of my past animation:

This is my pride and joy!! This is a paper cut out stop motion animation I made. Definitely one of my favorites.

Just a little something I made while I was making an illustration.

This completes everything that I want to post from my Sophomore year!

Sophomore animations-Spring

I finally got a hold of my animations from my Sophomore spring semester! Please enjoy!

This is a claymation I made. Hooray!

The animation in this piece is collaborative. Everyone in my class animated with the sand, then we all took the footage and each made an edit to it. I chose to edit it to the song "Nude" by Radiohead.

This is a hand drawn study of fire, smoke and wind!

I have several more! But that is all I have time to post. Posting videos takes a chunk of time!!!

Sophomore Work

Here is some work I did from Fall 2007-Spring 2008. Finally getting caught up on here.
Sorry that some of the pictures have my deviant art watermark on them!!!!

So, this was for my Designing the Frame class. We had to illustrate a story in 3 panels using limited colors. I did a story about a candy corn. This was done in Photoshop.

Panel 2

Panel 3

Also for Designing the Frame. We had to illustrate the Tell Tale Heart in 3 panels. Also done in Photoshop/Illustrator

Panel 2

Panel 3

From Life Drawing for Animators class

For Expressive Drawing...we had to make a black and white piece expressing angst.

Also for Expressive drawing. We had to make a layered piece expressing joy. I chose to express childlike joy. The drawing in the background was originally done by my 10 year old niece, Hannah.

For Illustration. We had to design an illustration for a magazine article.

For Illustration. We had to make a children's book cover. This is my original story! I hope to actually make it someday.

For Illustration. We needed to design a poster. I made this for an actual organization here in Kansas City.

A fun little thing I tried to do for the school magazine. It didn't get accepted though. :(

Another poster I did for some extra credit points. Again, this organization is really in KC too! I also made a video of me making this piece. Check it out here

For the last project in illustration, we got to choose what we wanted to do. I chose a comic book cover. This is the linework.

And the final!!!

Animations from Sophomore year coming soon......
