11.27.10 N.Morana

Here's a ruff painting based on the below sketch. Still playing around in corel, I think this one is a bit messy in places. I'll have to go back and work on it some more later.


Corel Painter tests

I just got Corel Painter 11 the other day. so I've been playing around a little; this being the first time I've ever used the program. I like it so far, there are a few brushes like the oil pastels and artist oils that I like, but a lot of the brushes seem kind of gimmicky. Any-who, heres the a couple quick paintings. the bottom one is only using a pastel brush, and the top only uses one artist oil brush.

Studies from my Force figure drawing book. My hands, feet and heads are the weakest, so I'm trying to get them to suck less.

Yesterdays character studies and today little doodle.

Color Studies

Some quick little tests for my illustration class. After one of these is picked I'll take it to a complete watercolor finish.

Arthairstory backgrounds

I was lead background and layout artist for the Art Institutes new 2d production "ArtHairstory." This is the establishing shot for the short. The ruffs were done by my friend Karlie and I, the final clean-up was done by Karlie, the tonal study and final colors were done by me. All the line work and ruffs were sketched out on paper, then painted in photoshop.

Finished Jack and the Beanstalk

I'm happy I finished this, but not 100% happy with how it turned out. It was a good learning experience, having only been using watercolors for a week now, and this being the 6th or 7th watercolor illustration I've ever done.
