This character was based off of Little red riding hood. In like ahhh different kind of world..steam punk? idk haha
This character was pretty much made from a fantasy story idea i had for a while about little red riding hood and fable stories in one world. I have some of the story written out, but i havent really gotten into any detail of the character and such.
Still not too sure of the color, especially the eyes and hair, that was just kind of on the moment. Might change to like blue eyes to balance the colors. maybe the eyes can change like Kurapika when enraged!!! haha orz.

This was the very first character design i made in my moleskine that i liked, not too sure about the color...so if you have any opinion please let me know! :D
This character is a mailman who travels around the world (probably a fantasy world) delivering mail.
I am probably going to make couple environment paintings with this character in various environments focusing on color, lighting/shading.

hmm there are some errors with the lighting, not sure, but the halo part was kind of interesting, i was thinking maybe that was fake halo attached to his head, maybe that could of been the reason why i made him bald.
but yeah this practice was a break for me from my animation work before i go crazy on sunday evening...

I did this picture thinking about Daisuke Tsutsumi and his greatness that someday i will be as awesome as he is, in dedication i painted a Dice, because thats what people call him at Pixar.
The idea of swings were like something from my childhood, maybe having the imaginary robot next to me as I swung there in the sunset..lol idk.
Time 3 hours

Why, because i saw the shadow and thought the lighting was very interesting, so i replaced my friends faces with an animal face.
I do like how this turned out.
Time: ~1.3 hours

This is a view of the quad of University of Washington, when the cherry blossoms blooom!!
Used this for reference UW CherryBlossom
Although the image i made doesn't have the right perspective as Dice's, i still think i was able to get a close render of the lighting
Will continue to practice.

The penguin turned out awesome! and it only took like 5 min to make.
Blue x Red seems like my favorite combo.
In this exercise/practice was to try and get the atmosphere of the cold..ness.. I think the blue gradient i got in the b/g worked well.
Hmm i wanna go ice fishing someday...with a penguin.
Time: ~1.4 hours
What inspired me to do this digital painting was the lighting, I really liked the set up of the lighting at the venue, so i took some reference pictures so i can re-create it with the painterly look.
Hope the lighting is working here, was originally going to try and paint animals instead of the band members, but I wanted to keep it close to original as possible so I can practice the lights.
Time: ~1 hour

But this image was pretty much the last request from my previous 365 drawing. This can be the finish. Geko doing a drum solo, but the image i had in mind was a geko playing the bongo jamaican style lol....
those eyes behind the shades came out nicely and it was made by accident too.. XD i was trying to make light shades on them but then it looked like eyes behind them so i kept it that way..
I kinda wish i could of of done the bongo's a little better like...more vibrant shade of brown.

thought of this on the bus after school, i always thought the idea of having a long scarf would be pretty cute if you can share it with someone you care.
Panda's are cute.

one more before i go to bed... i just had this idea for some reason.. maybe because i was eating crepe today..with icecream, but my ice cream didnt fall..poor birdthingy..perhaps you'll be more careful next time.
Hoping that this will continue and that I can create some things to add for my portfolio.
Gonna try and do one painting a day, almost continuing my daily drawing.

Still no where near, and far, but i feel like i'm starting to understand bits by bit of how to paint digitally.
I never really liked Painting traditionally IE Oil painting, but doing this digitally has helped me quite a bit in grasping how painting in oil might have been like if it all worked so well.
