After some awesome color & shading lessons from my internship mentor, Mike, I reworked the devil girl. I look forward to redoing a lot of my work now because my drawing and digital painting skills have definitely upgraded in the past month!

WIP 02 of my carnotaurus digital paint. Basically done with the dinosaur now, except that I'll probably go in and add more scale textures. I feel like the head has more detail than the rest of the body.
Currently working away on the background, which has been a challenge. I haven't done a ton of background painting, and getting the level of detail to match the dinosaur is tricky.

digital painting of a Carnotaurus I'm working on. This is definitely going to end up being one of the most time-consuming things I've done. I've also never gone for this kind of style of digital painting. Understanding the shading has been one of the biggest challenges, as well as avoiding too much desaturation. There is also a huge amount of layers that I'm working with.
Using a bunch of different photo references. Someday I'll finish this.

Took a trip to the zoo with some friends, having the intent to do some life drawings of animals. The end result was zero life drawings, and we stared at prairie dogs for longer than most would. They're so funny when they pop out of their tunnels and yell.
I guess this means I'll have to give life drawings at the zoo another go sometime this summer.
Other than that, I'm getting ready for my final review, 12th level. I'm happy with my website layout, just need to do some tweaking on the demo reel and some small stuff. (Blythedockham.com) I am very excited for my internship if everything works out! September needs to hurry up, even though I will make sure to enjoy my summer. It'll give me some time to learn some new skills to help me with my internship, and I would really like to do a small 2D animated project.

This is the proof of concept scene I did to get a feel for a color palette and shading style.
* responsible for color only
* responsible for everything except lineart on shark
Doing an After Effects animated short on the shark sensory system. Here's some work so far of what I have done for our group final. On a side note, back when I was a kid I thought it would be cool to have a pet shark. That didn't really pan out.

Revised version of this- I had it posted earlier, noticed some weird things and fixed it. Much happier with it now.
What I thought of while listening to Stereo Hearts by Gym Class Heroes.
The pose and cell shading were some of the biggest obstacles in this one. I ended up doing solid black lineart, then going in with a mask to create the cell-shading appearance. So far I just don't like doing lineart in Illustrator as much.
5 hours of work so far into this.
