I am finally done moving back to San Jose California for the summer. I plan on starting a art project soon but first I need to catch up with family and friends.  In the mean time here is a self portrait I did last month.

I just finished my first year at DigiPen!  Finals put a hold on my blog updates and the lack of regular posts will most likely continue for a short while as I move back down to California to work over the summer and catch up with family.  In the meantime here is a Photoshop painting I did on a whim the other day.

Speed painting 9, I tried a more loose sketchy style.  I think it helps it look a little less digital and hopefully a little more interesting at the loss of some celerity and precision.

Over spring break Nick, Kennith, and I took a six hour road trip to the Wenatchee Guard Station in the Pomeroy Ranger District.  it was five days of hiking, fishing, card playing, gun shooting, and tracking down cougar elk and moose. it was also one of the most picturesque camping trips I have been on, see for yourself.

I have not posted anything in a while but that does not mean I have not been busy.  with midterms done and a little breathing room I should be able to get back to speed painting!  in the mean time here is some of my mid term art.

School got rather busy for a week or two and I found myself neglecting my speed painting practice but I am back! 1 Hour

I found myself struggling on the last few speed paintings so I decided to try and change things up a bit.  In this painting I started with a black and white value drawing before adding the color. I also played around with texture and trying to make it look less digital.  1-hour

Whats this four posts in one day?!  don't get used to it though because it won't happen often, here is a sketchbook dump.

 Here is a Watercolor painting of my Niece that I did for my brother and his wife.

this one is a little late due to the snow that kept me per-ocupied.  1-hour (maybe a little less this time) as usual check out Henry Chau's page to see his version.

 Here are some of the Animations I worked on last semester.

      Jump Assignment                                                    Lift and throw assignment
 Run cycle                                                                    Walk cycle

 This one was difficult, I would like to spend more time on it but I stuck to the 1 hour limit.  head

 here is speed painting #2 I really wanted to spend more time on this one playing with the texture. In fact I did lose track of time at one point so it ended up being more like a 1 1/2 hour painting.  Check out Henry Chau's page to see his version.
