Food Group

I picked up these plushy fruits and veggies in the clearance aisle after Christmas.  I thought they could use a little more personality.

Just some acrylic paint and a little time.  As you can see, some of these guys are starting to go bad, but that strawberry, well he's definitely a zombie.  This is my first time delving into the world of zombie produce, and I don't think it'll be the last.
Eat your fruits and veggies people!

Goodbye free time

Today was my first day of classes this semester.  I'm very pleased with the variety of subjects I get to study.  Along with animation (CG and 2D) I'll have sculpture, visual development, and advanced character design.  All that, and I have to make my film!  It's delightfully scary.
So here's the first project I started for sculpture. This was an unplanned piece.  We were meant to focus on starting off with simple shapes, building rough and making it up as we go.  The piece is about six or seven inches tall I'd say, minus the horns.
 Mahoney showed us some amazing monster and creature sculptures, so I just had to make something monstrous.  I'll finish this up next week, and I may paint it when it dries.  Hopefully I'll get some maquettes for my film characters done soon.
Good luck to all my fellow students.  Make this a fantastic semester!

Goofy Pirates

I'm officially in love with Autodesk SketchBook.  This is my first time really taking it for a spin, and I am certain that I'm hooked.  I think I might even drop the 30 bucks for the full version.  Oh yeah, it's that good.

Pirates were on the brain tonight.  Surprise surprise.
