9 in the afternoon- week 9

sketch: so I lost the sketch I was originally working on…I can’t find it anywhere. So I had to do another one real quick based on last weeks inspirations. I drew a gothic ghost.





So I was watching my friend play this game called fallout: new vegas and was surprised at how open ended it was. In this particular game, you can adventure, steal, choose sides, pretty much everything imaginable. I was also surprised at how many thing you need to keep a watch on while you play. Your character will constantly need food, water, use the bathroom, medicine. ammo, stats, skills, and sleep. Its the whole nine yards if you expect to play this game. It seems very complicated to me, but I really enjoyed the fact that in this particular game, you can do pretty much about anything and everything you could think of.

My second inspiration for this week is the movie Ponyo. This movie is created by a japanese studio called Studio Ghibli. This studio creates amazing masterpieces that have been translated into several different languages. I was really excited when I watched this movie. The art and storyline were particularly amazing in this film. A good summary of this story would be Japanese Little Mermaid.


Assignment 6

8 more cookies- Week 8

I would like to start off by saying….I’m running out of titles for the numbers! I have no Idea what i’m going to do for next week! So my sketch for this week is this:

If your a little curious as to what this is, so am I. I was picturing what a real vampire looked like in Castlevania (game) terms. I didn’t have a reference image or anything, so I ended up creating this. I actually think its kinda cute. I’m not sure what I want to call this little creature I’ve created but…yeah. I really liked the way it turned out and I think I will be working to edit and continue to make this creature interesting.



As I have mentioned for my sketch, I was inspired by the game Castlevania Lords of Shadow for the PS3. It is a fun looking game and I can give praise for the animation and rendering qualities in this game. The cut scenes and the game play look exactly the same. If you weren’t careful, you wouldn’t know you were in a cutscene or actually playing! Here is an image from official game art.

My second inspiration is sort of related to my first one for this week. That would be gothic art. I came across a gothic art book and Borders the other day and I really liked the images I saw inside. I enjoy gothic art because of its ability to be beautiful and sad at the same time. It is a good way to portray emotions and include the darker colors of the spectrum. Here are a few images I collected that I believe hold the beautiful and sad quality that I enjoy.

7 days in a week! -week 7

So for my sketch I decided to work on a more cartoon style with one of my favorite superheros. Its not really an original character or anything, but I consider a sketch to be what we want to do. Even if it is fan art of oneĀ  of your favorite characters. So this is my attempt at an older teen Robin. I am really proud of the way this cartoon style Robin turned out.


So i’ve been watching the trailers for MegaMind quite a bit this week. I think its the main storyline that has captured my attention. I really like the idea of a villain having to fill in for a hero. Also from the previews, there seems to be a lot of humor. Which is expected from dreamworks studio. They tend to incorporate quite a bit of humor into their films. I’m really looking forward to the release of this movie.

As for my second inspiration for this week, I stumbled upon a hacked pokemon game called Pokemon Chaos Black. The idea of a hacked game interested me, so I purchased this game. In this version of the game, the alter the storyline as well as introduce unofficial pokemon (fakemon) into the game. Its very interesting and even though it is a fake pokemon game, it still has the elements of a official pokemon game. Its very interesting to play.

Assignment 5- the chair!

6 PKMN in the party! -week 6

So i’m not really sure whats going on with this sketch, but its just a sketch and there no need for an explanation.


My first inspiration is a song we have all probably heard from a band called a-ha. I heard it on the radio the other day and remembered that i’ve never watched the full official music video, just pieces of it. So I decided to re-watch it and I can say that it is mind blowing how creative and amazing this video is. I mean to just think that this was all hand drawn! It must have taken ages to create this amazing video. Its just such a pleasure to watch and I do like the way the music video actually follows the lyrics.

My second inspiration for this week is the movie “Iron Man 2”. I have just recently purchased this movie for my dads birthday. Re-watching this movie I noticed all the details in the animation. The suits in the movies were animated in such a way, that I would forget that it really was an animation. I like to say that this movie really accomplished its goals in animation!
