Figures and magic!

Here's some more recent work, this one's a figure painting I did today for fun and to experiment a little bit with digital markmaking, trying to get a more oily, painterly quality to my work. I had a lot of fun with the process and like how it turned out, so I'm probably gonna apply this to my next illustration. Excited!

And then here's some more good ol' constructive figure drawing; still focusing on simplifying the human form and observing it in rhythms as well as form. Learning a ton from these and they're a lot of fun to do!

And lastly here's the thumbs for an upcoming piece; this one's a faux Magic the Gathering card for our Illustration class. Super excited for this one! I'm probably going to roll with either #1 or #5. Will update this one soon!

And here's some figure studies done for our figure construction classes with Ron Lemen this semester, which I'm super stroked for. I love his animator's approach to figure drawing and I know later on he's going to get in to really solid and accurate anatomy, I feel like by the end of this semester my figure game's gonna be way above where it was. Excite!

Parish Sketch

Here's a quick sketch (about 1.5 hours) I did last night as a live painting at the Art Seen Alliance event that happened at the Parish down in Austin. Was a lot of fun, and my first time painting live, it's pretty thrilling to try and progress a painting and make it look good at every stage while still making adjustments that are big enough to be interesting to people. There were about 4 of us there that swapped out using the projector every half hour or so. Lots of fun!
