I also put my art on Nugget Bridge, but they're both the same threads. Intro I'm an old-school artist that works (well, worked) in traditional mediums. Very little of my stuff is done in Photoshop. This is due to a combination of me not knowing how to use it, being too cheap to buy it, and I feel that over-reliance on it destroys one's ability to draw. Also there's not a lot of Pokemon stuff in here atm, but there will be more in the coming weeks. Also, they all have titles because I put these in a portfolio during a time when I thought I was going to an art college. You may notice that I have an affinity for bad puns. Pictures Self Portrait (2010) Thoughts: Made in acrylic paint. It was an assignment that took me two grueling weeks (I say that because it was my first acrylic painting). All in all it got me a Silver Key at the Boston Globe Show, so that was cool. PROTIP: only paint people with black hair. That means you have one less texture to worry about. The Sweet Life (2011) Hide (Move your mouse to the hide area to reveal the content) Show Hide Hide Hide Thoughts: I hate graphite drawings. They look nice when you start, but get blurry and worn down over time. The theme here was candy and sweets. Get it?!?!?!? Ahhhh I'm so clever One thing I remember about this is that I couldn't focus on working on it because Pokemon Black and White literally came out the same week. Clefable (2013) Thoughts: A sketch I did yesterday. I took the old Pokemon conspiracy and used it to parody the movie poster for Gremlins, as seen below. Hide (Move your mouse to the hide area to reveal the content) Show Hide Hide Hide On the Cutting Edge of Dinner (2011) Thoughts: Another acrylic painting. My mom is cutting vegetables on a wooden cutting board that lies on a granite counter top. The carrots were supposed to have their reflection on the knife, but it turns out that I made the knife look transparent by mistake. Things are a bit Pear-Shaped (2009?) Thoughts: Watercolor. This was probably one of the first things I ever painted, so i can't remember exactly when I made it. All I remember is that it was the last time I worked in watercolor (OH GOD THE DRIPPING!!) A Storm of Abstract Thoughts (2012) Hide (Move your mouse to the hide area to reveal the content) Show Hide Hide Hide Thoughts: A mixed media piece. I actually forget what the point of this assignment was. The Adventures of Troop 17 (2012) Hide (Move your mouse to the hide area to reveal the content) Show Hide Hide Hide Thoughts: Made on paper and ink, colored in Photoshop. The point of the piece was "Little people in the Big World". Shrunken troop members try to rough it on someone's desk. I colored it too look like something out of a children's storybook. If you look closely, you can see a Pickachu! Actually, there's a lot of stuff going on in this picture. Heavenly Ride (2011) Hide (Move your mouse to the hide area to reveal the content) Show Hide Hide Hide Thoughts: Yeah some of these JPEGs are too big because I'm too lazy to cut them down. The theme here was to represent a bicycle in a unique way without actually drawing a bicycle. I cranked this out in two days over the summer because I wanted to get my work done and over with ASAP. What I learned in Cultural Anthropology Today (2012) Thoughts: The title says it all. I got the proportions wrong, though, and as a result he looks a little chubby. Culex from Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars (2009) Thoughts: Made in 3DS Max on a friend's computer. Look at the incredible amount of effort this took! Also if you haven't played SMRPG yet, then why the hell not?! Ugly girl (2013) Thoughts: lol Super Mario (2011) Thoughts: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=65uNCLBTje0 So I will add more to this in the coming weeks as I make more doodles (and as I get a hold of my old sketchbooks so I can take pictures to upload). So, go ahead, love it, hate it, critique it, whatever!
