Ipod project I developed using Strata. Strata is a 3d program like sketchup or maya. It was interesting to use and I have another project that I'm using strata for that I will upload when its finished...that will take a couple weeks though. Strata is good...ONLY when you know how to use it. At first its one of the most unintuitive, complicated, out of its way frustrating programs I have ever used. And I use windows, so thats really saying something :P

You'll find this in the dictionary next to 'Awesome'. I've been trying something a bit different. One of my favourite online reviewers has a knack for lambasting bad comic books. I've been studying certain characters iconic of these awful stories and then redrawing them. This is Earths End Superman. Who does, in fact, fight Hitler (twice...or rather, two hitlers) in the book. Its loud, its stupid, it stars a superman who is only superman because of his name, and it's stupid. I know I said stupid twice but this book is really really mishandled. Since when does superman use a gun??
same style and technique as my deadpool drawing minus the black outline I gave deadpool

But we werent done yet! A whole second part of it was done in computers class where we had to create an 'ad' for the caster with tone and a 'ghost' drawing on the housing. Sure it was more caster drawings, but at least it was something we were familiar with and creating the ad was incredibly fun. Not to mention learning how to create textures using photoshop. This was done almost entirely in photoshop with the labels created using Illustrator.
The accompanying piece to the tonal comparison. A more detailed drawing labelling all the parts. I didnt think shells could be as complicated as the florida murex shell. The dont get much more complex though. Guess I enjoy a challenge since I B-lined towards that spiny thing the minute it was taken out of the box for us to choose.
One of the last but one of the largest projects done last semester for scientific illustration. Despite a couple hiccups I still really like how it looks. It's also accurate! My favourite part of it is the stylized skull drawings overlayed on the rougher shapes to demonstrate the bone's placement within the body.
Skulls drawn on graphite and scanned into photoshop, outline shapes roughed out on paper and 'perfected' with photoshop.
