Mushy gushy update

Hey guys! Life is kinda crazy right now, but of course you gotta make time and do something for yourself.

I'm not making romantic illustrations for fantasy novels ...yet (I SO wouldn't mind though XD). It was my piece for the Sketchtheatre contest. The February theme was 'Tamed Beast'.

I always want the ugly (and sometimes misunderstood) guy to get the pretty girl. WOOT.

Last CGMA assignments and X-MAS

Time flies by so quickly!
Here are the last two assignments of CGMA.
I really liked this class and I'm a bit sad that it's over.

Looking at the BG concepts... my final has a more happier mood than the preliminaries. I really wanted to tackle a darker mood but WHATEVS. I've barely painted a bg before and now I feel like I can tackle the world! Muahahaha!

Oh yes.. and Merry X-mas! Or Happy Holidays :)

Urgghgh it's cupcake time!

So week 5's assignment for CGMA's Digital Painting class is to paint a robot.
aljfafjgkhkalaahhhgghh Robots are so damn hard to conceptualize.
I thought "Oooh a robot that bakes cupcakes would be an awesome idea"

I wanted to saw my hands off.

- but it was an interesting challenge for sure. Makes me wanna draw another robot... but later on when I recover. hahaha

And.....It's the holiday season you guys! I'm excited to be listening to Xmas carols and drinking lots of peppermint mocha. YAY!
