Fall 2013 school work

Last semester I took a digital illustration class as well as an advanced 3D modeling class.

My 3D modeling class was actually my last Maya class ever at SJSU! I'm sooo glad to be done haha. I did come out of the class with some neat stuff though-

The last 2 were part of the final project of the class where I had to model an original character for the purpose of 3D printing it. Needless to say this was the most fun I'd have modeling anything haha. Here's the result-

And here's some of the concept work I made specifically for this model based on drawings I've posted previously-

Obviously I strayed a bit from the concept work to compensate for creating the character for a different medium but it was a good learning experience!

My other studio class was an intro to digital illustration. I'm by default really not confident at all with my painting and color skills but I think I came out of this class for the better.

We started out with simple black and white assignments like rendering a kitchen object then aging it like 30 years and copying from photographs.

it's like a Slap Chop

Then we went on to work on a series of illustrations based on the writings of Gary Soto who wrote stories based on growing up in a Mexican-American agriculture community in Fresno, CA. The first set of illustrations was to design either a kitchen or garage based on a set of writings. I picked the garage and I think I ended up biting off more than I could chew-



The final project was also based on Soto's works but this time we had to design a treehouse.
