Little Competition Piece

The Knock Steady Crew is having a contest to design a sticker, and here is my entry. It's far from finished, but I just wanted to post this up because I won't be able to get back to this for another couple of days due to other work I have to finish up. I'll edit this with the finished version when I'm done.

Good things are coming

Whoo. Been super busy with school, tutoring, the internship, freelance job, and trying to get myself out there to the hip hop community. Did this painting last Sunday, pretty much spent from 12 pm all the way up to 2 am(Of course with breaks) painting this. Then went to sleep, woke up at 5, drank coffee and worked out, then went to school to tutor for another four hours and then finished it. One of the best things I've done. I went to a Grind Time battle event in LA to see this painting on a flyer at the end of the night. Chopped it up with tons of cats and really got some good networking done. The future is bright, all I got to do is work hard and keep up the pace!

Hey guys,

Sorry for the lack of update. I got two projects that I'm currently working on, so that means there won't be any updates for awhile. This winter break has been exhausting. Helping people move, saying goodbye to good friends that are going to the army, and trying to get back in shape lol. But overall, life feels really good right now. Got to keep a steady head and remain focused.

So, with that being said, gonna drop something into the bin that I did awhile back and just touched up a few things. I've loved hip hop since I was little, and it has been a big part of my life. I intend to continue to show that love. So...

Wablam! lol

Ahh I love studies. Whenever you're mind is pullin a blank in the imagination department, that's always a good time to brush on your technical skills and knowledge. The first is of course a study. The second was just a little sketch used to help practice my character design polish-ness (? lol), and the third was for a creature competition on CGHub. I may update the last two in the future to give it a retouch to have a much more finished, pleasant look.

Some Old and Some New

I haven't updated this in a while, so I thought I'd drop some recent stuff. Been doing a lot of studies, drawing, contests, and ideations as of late. The first was a Zhaoming Wu study I did about a week ago. He's an amazing artist and I would love to implement some of his use of edges, subtleties, and especially his color in my work in the future. After that study, I made sure to put what I learned to the test and made a little illustration of the last Aztec king, trying to utilize the use of the fall off and texture that I had did in the study.

I've also been participating in multiple challenges this past week, including Dominance War. These next two pieces were for CG Hub's Character Forge, both it's thumbnails and what I had for the deadline. Got to do more mileage!!!
This last piece is an oldie, about three months old. Did it for my composition class with Steve Hampton. The class was invaluable, as I've always had a foggy understanding with composition, however I feel so much more confident approaching it now. This too was a giant learning experience.
