Owl Crazy

I had a sketch assignment to do, so I picked owls. I just had to sketch them using different pencils and then label them for which pencil I used. 6B is the highest, darkest pencil. As the scale goes down the pencil gets lighter till you get to HB. Most people use the HB pencil, but it's a nice balance of both the B pencils and the H pencils. My 6H pencil was unavailable, so I used 4H. As you go up the H scale to 6H it get's lighter. I also learned that if the pencil is marked with an F, it means that it is a fine tip.
    Just like they are marked, the drawings are of one pencil each except the bottom right one. I used all 3 on it.

Progress Report

I got a little more done on him. He's getting there.

I also did a little side project to give myself a break from modeling people. Here's what I came up with.

Tis the season for another competition! That is exactly what I did. was hosting another Christmas competition that I thought I would take part in. Here is my piece.

Unfortunately, I didn't win. That's okay though. Each project just gives me more experience as I go along. Plus I learned new skills that made this project better than the last Christmas one I did.

On top of that I am working on my character sculpting and retopping. Quite a lot to learn there, but the community has been awesome in giving me feedback. He's not finished yet, but here is what he looks like.

Last but not least I am learning about how to make game assets. In other words I am concept drawing of a rock. Don't have a picture of that yet, but I will when it's done.

Merry Christmas!

Coffee Scene and a Thanksgiving Special!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

This is kind of a random post. First off I would like to present this coffee scene that I worked on for school. I was learning about compositing. The course presented the before image, but after image and the node web are my work. It took me a while to figure out, but it was worth it.

Next I would like to invite Rebekah from Rebekah Ashleigh
Jonathan from The2ndBrother
James from Idaho Spud
and AKMD from AKMD
to join in on the Thanks Giving Tag! WOOP WOOP 😆! 

Rules: Complete the task and pass it on! 

Task: Name 10 things you are thankful for! (Bonus: Feel free to add in why if you want to!)

1. Family 
Where would I be without them?

2. A place to live

3. Friends

4. My job

5. A Heavenly Father
Where would I be without Him. He is the one looking out for me the most.

6. Electronics
Justification time! Without my computer I couldn't do blog post, work on my artwork, download music... Without my iPod I couldn't listen to music easily... Without a cell phone I couldn't call for help if I needed to... You get the picture. :)

7. Animals
Not including the ones in our house. I was kidding! I was just kidding!  Gosh, calm down everyone! Can't you take a joke.

8. A car
Walking to work in the cold wouldn't be much fun.
9. Rain
It smells good and freshens the air.

10. Music
I listen to a lot of music. The world would be a weird place without it.

And because I'm extra thankful, I'll throw in a bonus 11.

11. Art/CGCookie
The CGCookie classes that I have been taking have taught me so much and encouraged me to try new things that I would normally avoid. (Like the node editor). I appreciate the crew and the community of artist that have been so helpful in answering my questions and helping me through tough spots.

Feel free to add your own bonus 11.

That wraps up the Thanksgiving tag! I hope you join in and share this time of reflecting on all the things worth being thankful for!

1Chronicles 16:34
Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.
