Wow! Another update already. This probably won't be happening too often, but since I've got a lot of stuff from 1st year that's just laying around I'm throwing it on here. This one was a Master Copy assignment we had to complete early in the second semester. Anyway, it was done using gouache like most other paintings we did. I was never a fan of using gouache, but if done right it can produce some nice results.
I was looking through some of my stuff today and pulled out these 3 quick sketches I did of a friend's car a little while ago. I might finish them up and paint them on Photoshop to experiment a little, but for now here they are in their rough form. Sorry for the poor quality, but my scanner really hates penciled drawings.
I spent a day at the Toronto Zoo earlier this week with a buddy of mine. We were there to draw, but ended up taking a lot of pictures instead. We took nearly 400 pictures altogether. Here are some resized from 2592x1944. I will post 2 more batches another day.

In an effort to keep this blog updated at least once or twice a week, I'm posting some of my first year's work from my painting class. They turned out ok, but I rushed the cloth on the first painting. You can really see how it doesn't really match the objects. The second one was supposed to be a landscape, but we had to use a color scheme and stick to it. It's a little rushed, but I think it turned out the way I wanted overall.

Wow! Finally decided to create a blog. Took me long enough. This is gonna take some time for me to get used to. I'm going to have to learn how to add other links, create a new template one day, and add more stuff to my profile on the side of the front page. I've never worked with Java, so this will take some time for me to figure things out. In the meantime, this will be my first post. And since no post is complete without any kind of pictures, I'm posting a picture of my pc setup. I'm running an increasingly outdated AMD 64 3500+ @2.31Ghz, ATI X800XT PE, 1gb ddr400 Corsair XMS, SB Audigy LS, and a DiMax 9 200 gigger as storage. I have a second DiMax 10 200gb drive that works as my external storage for school related work. The lcd is a Viewsonic VP930b and the speakers are Logitech Z-2300's. My pc is 2 years old now, but still manages to keep up with everything I throw at it so I can't complain.
