Under the Sea

where it is wetter, where it is better. . . under the sea? well... i guess that depends on how far "under" the sea sebastien was talking about. also, he does a diservice to all his crab-kin for using "under" in such a very ambiguous way just to further his agenda in making us think how great his natural habitat is. i'm sure there are other crabs out there with better intentions, and equipped with a better ability to employ words, such as "under."

colored a doodle last night that's been sitting on the front of one of my notebooks for a while now. just trying weird stuff, and getting better.

also colored this. originally done for a mission friend. very cool kid.
i ended up combining two lens flairs in this one.. crazy, eh?

by the way, here's an awesome song about not being able to surf--> i can't surf.

Mountain Dew, Still Life.

still rockin' the gouache paint for my illustration class. (however, it is "required" to "rock" the gouache, but i'm having fun with it)

assignment: set up a still life that illustrates a healthy, or bad diet.
i sorta went for a "both" kind of approach. something like that. done in gouache paint..

"Mountain Dew, Still Life"

AAAAAAAND, i colored this picture i did for a good, turtle obsessed friend. fun stuff.

"Turtle POWER"

i once had a turlte... named him "Koopa." after a while it just seemed like the guy refused to eat, and didn't eat for like, 4 months until he died. i REALLY wanted his turtle shell, because that would be a very sweet artifact to possess, and could get kid out of many a tight situation if ever cornered by a goomba, or one of the infamous hammer brothers.

anyways.. i forgot the exact spot where i barried my turtle, and would have to ruin a lot of grass to do it now. no turtle shell as of yet.

moral of the story: eat all your food, or i'll kill you? and stuff your body in a hole behind my house. yeah.... something like that.

oh-found this guy on youtube that apparently can memorise landscapes and redraw them from memory, in a 360 panaromic view. here he is doing tokyo.

fun stuff...

Down with THE KING!! in color

so yeah - colored this
other possible titles were: the king, singing in the key of "D," or redemption song... or something like that. i don't know.

yep.. just more color practice. now that's out of the way, it's time for school type stuff...
and also - whatever it is you like to do, check yourself out some parkour and freerunning psychology - just some english kids talking about parkour, but it applies to anything you do, and how you should do it, with cool accents. with that in mind, they've actually got some really cool videos, like this one.

oh. and while we're on the subject, i ran into this video about being creative. interesting stuff:

it's just one of those things that hit me really hard, and not 100% sure why exactly... so i let it hit me about 20 to 30 more times replaying the last sentence over and over, just to make a good impression in the head. good stuff!

Jack be Nimble

draw, draw, draw, draw, draw, draw, draw, draw.... paint? sure.

only fun thing i've done in my illustration class - assignment was to take a nursery rhyme, and change the context so the meaning changes, basically. i did "Jack Be Nimble." done in gouache paint. it's like watercolor, it just sounds dumber.

"Jack Be Nimble"

and then, i added legs to the Rock part of my Rock, Paper, GUN! doodle. i'm really starting to like this guy. should probably turn this into an actual... character, thing.

drew this one in HIGHSCHOOL. 5 years ago.. been sitting on my computer for awhile so, i colored it a few days ago. crazy, eh? our teacher was obsessed with 'collages.' so here's one of the few i did, only in COLOR!!!
"Dream Orientation"

and, yeah. cyclops dude. idea just came to me while i was homework-ing. made me laugh, and i had to draw it.

Rock, Paper, GUN!

yep. just some doodles in different notebooks coming together in an epic shootout or something. looks kinda like a wrap-around cover to an album or comic something... anyways, had a lot of fun.

i think i'm subconsciously drawing celebrities - now that i look at it, the guy on the right looks A LOT like Danny Glover... with a lot more hair. And the old guy in my previous post as someone pointed out, looks a LOT like Stan Lee. NOT to be confused with the form of Stan Lee in 1973. seriously... what the heck WAS that!?!?
