Tonals For Exterior Landscape

So here's three tonal studies I did with my trusty graphite powder. Nothing better for tonals. Messy as hell though. The final painting needs touch ups, Ill post the original and then the fixed up version soon.

Portrait

Prince John from Disney's Robin Hood

Okay - here is my head turn animation. It's not nearly as nice as I wanted it - BUT - I AM going to clean things up and re post it this summer. So be patient. I did get 95 % on the assignment thought. I was about 3 different shades of green in the face after handing this in, and my instructor was like "Brad... Go home.....". So I did.... Enjoy!

Racoon Walk Cycle

Here's my racoon walk cycle - still needs some emprovement, but I took it as far as I could at the time. You can see some problems in the head timing. I'm going to try and fix it up soon and re post. Enjoy!

Glen Sequence

This is my just-finished character design assignment. I had so much fun doing it because it really allowed me to explore more story into posing. Story creates so much more juicy work when you add it to a character design. Enjoy!

Glen Poses


Here are some poses for Glen. Well not really "poses", but just some rough preliminary drawings. Design still needs tightening... Any suggestions on design? Or nice comments if you wish =)

Glen and Rusty


Here are some new characters I am working on. They are part of a story I am putting together. Glen is a disgruntled black sheep that feels sort of "hard done too", and is an intellect of sorts. He has a best friend named Rusty. Rusty is a happy go lucky Llama that dreams of becoming a movie star. I will be solidifying the designs for them soon, but the basic idea is that the two characters balance each other out, sort of like a yin and yang thing.

Nearly Finished Isle of Skye Painting






So here we are, now two weeks later on this painting I was tell you about. It's almost finished and I'm really happy with it. As you will notice, I decided that it needed a stronger foreground element so I drew in another ground plane and added a figure. I think having the figure in the composition creates a better story visually. There's not too much left to do except strengthen the mountains on the left and solidify the bottom half of the figure. I will post the final when its done. Until then, here's what I've got. Enjoy!
