Better than the baby tossing director's cut

Traditional stuff was requested, and while I don't have the proper painting-paintings back yet, there's some sketchbook stuff which demonstrates suitable levels of sass.

A portrait of the lovely Bennett:

And a gouache and pencil crayon sketch from extra life.

Weirdly enough, I also painted this, technically from life. Frustration interferes, as per usual.

Digital self portrait of sorts.

Lastly, quick digital portrait of my roommate, Greg. Tentatively titled "This is why we can't have nice things".

I'm trying to figure out what to do for my animated film for computers this semester, and find myself going back to the national film board shorts that I used to love as a kid. This one is both amazing stop motion and storytelling. Watch as things escalate to ridiculous heights! A baby gets punted at one point! Just watch it.

Jumping ship, bridging the gap, etc.

Well, I went and done it. I figured it was about time that I went and hopped on this bandwagon.

And hey, a couple paintings!

In other news, I JUST discovered RAW format. I can't believe it took me this long, because suddenly editing gets so much easier! Pictorial evidence, guys!
