#79 Carl, the space rancher

Finished piece for 3D illustration.  Yes, he's a falcon of sorts.  I'm decently happy with how it turned out, despite the real lack of effort put into it... more sculpey practice, here I come!

It may look primitive for galactic travel, but it packs a lazer punch, boy.
Haha kinda crappy photos, but you get the idea.  By the way, metallic paint is WAY too fun!

And the second drawing, probably should have changed angles...but oh well.

By the way, I'm sure you've noticed the new interface when you click on a picture.  Make sure to right click and "open in new tab" to view my final images in the size they were meant to be viewed in!

#75 Hitler was a vegitarian

Here's a wip on an illustrated factoid. "Hitler was a vegetarian" was picked randomly out of a hat, and I must say it was quite fun to work on :D

preliminary sketch
inked wip
Now to digitally color it
kinda colored.  More to come.

After I color this, I'm going to go back and line work the crap out of this thing!....miight color it after that...but kinda doubt it.  Line work is enough for me.

#71 Illuxcon/ update

So I went to Illuxcon in Altoona, Pennsylvania last weekend!  It was totally worth the student ticket price...more so!  Met some AMAZING illustrators, including Petar Meseldzija, Danato Giancola, Omar Rayyan, Gary Lippincott, Joe Kovach (My teacher) and so many others!

My roomies and I talking to Gary L.
I have no idea who took this picture or how they knew who I was and tagged me on facebook.... >.> but I feel honored to have witnessed such a spectacular group of artists share their talent! Not to mention the beautiful prints I received.

Altoona was such a beautiful place
I did not take my camera regrettably... check out Klang's blog for more pics of the spectacular area and show!    I am so inspired and ready to explode with artistic influence after this thing... I'll definitely be there next year- see you there!  I'm also very excited about Spectrum coming to Kansas City :D

Welp anyway here's a small update on the small happenings of Amanda's time at art school...

The start of using a technique that C.F. Payne developed.
