Ms. Sweater Goblin – 12/30/09

I decided to make a lady friend for the Sweater Goblin.


I’m modifying the original, trying to make it more feminine, while being the same species.

Still much to do.

Basic Guy at Home

I’ve always been interested in visual effects, so I jumped at the chance to take a class in it at school. For my final I wanted to bring a CG character into the real world. So I took a video of the hall in my apartment and built a Maya scene to duplicate it to a certain extent. The whole thing turned out to be more complicated than I thought, but it was pretty fun.

Background Final – Baba Yaga’s hut, Interior

This is the second final drawing for my background class. The interior of Baba Yaga’s hut.


The toning on this one turned out a lot more like I was going for than the exterior.


Background Final – Baba Yaga’s hut, Exterior

This is the first final drawing for my Background class, Baba Yaga’s hut from the outside.


I like the drawing, but my toning technique for this project wasn’t nailed down yet. I may repaint this.

The Yellow Wallpaper

Here are some illustrations for ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’ by Charlotte Perkins Gilman.yellowWallpaper1

“ I don’t even like to look out the windows even—there are so many of those creeping women, and they creep so fast.

I wonder if they all come out of that wallpaper as I did?”


I may return to this and clean up the composite, the shadows and whatnot,  after finals.

I’m pretty happy with how they turned out, and I got pretty good feedback in class. I think I know which two I’m going to go forward with.

We had Andrea as a model again last week. I had some problems with proportions, but over all, I think I had a decent session. I’m trying writing this in Windows Live Writer, rather than directly on my BlogSpot. We’ll see how it goes

Background Layout and Design #4 - Gallery

This is my fourth assignment for Background Layout and design. The objective was to make an interior with cast shadows. Unfortunately it was supposed to be 8*16, so I had to crop it pretty severely.
