SKETCHING SARAH

Welcome to my art Portfolio!

Drawing 2: Final Project, November 29th, 2012. Final project we had for our portfolio in Drawing 2 (Figure Drawing) I took a slightly different approach when playing with the dark and lights. The reference photo I used for this drawing was found on DeviantArt.com (I don’t have the link at the moment). Normally, I would have left the background or the base of the paper blank, but because the model had such pale skin, I wanted to give her luminous glow so that she somewhat emerges from the darkness. (…Or rather, something like that!)I definitely had fun working with this one; I will miss the drawing class, but I learned a ton of stuff and I’m excited to move forward and apply it all to my future work! :-)Charcoal (soft, extra soft pencil- medium stick), Graphite, Ebony pencil.  
"Victory MMA & Fitness"- logo practice, 2012: For a while, my Sensei at the dojo I work at was looking for a potential logo and mascot for our team, while he was throwing ideas around I came up with this. He’s Irish so incorporated an upside-down Celtic knot motif with a stylized owl head (for the owl that is on his family crest). Digital, Photoshop 
Bigfoot: Rough 1, March-April 2012: I was asked to create a visual of Bigfoot for my schools Mission Green Student Association’s Earth Day event. This was a rough draft, but I rather liked that about it, the blocked-colors and roughly drawn quality lends itself to Bigfoot’s ruggedness; but that’s just me! The club was pleased with the visual and we will be using it for the next Earth Day event once it is cleaned up more. Very fun stuff!

In-Class 1.5 hour Drawing- Drawing 2: November 2012

Assignment for class a couple weeks ago, took a break from drawing full body. Professor told us to take a part of our model’s body and crop it. I experimented a bit with a different shading method, using more stippling and taking up the charcoal with the kneaded eraser gave it a neat effect!
Graphite, Vine charcoal (soft)
In-Class 1.5 hour Drawing- Drawing 2: November 2012

Assignment for class a couple weeks ago, took a break from drawing full body poses and moved towards portraiture and the composition/proportion and musculature of the face. Super fun! The man was really nice, his sunken face and stoic expression was really interesting to draw.
…His eyes seem to stare into the depths of your soul!

Assignment for class a couple weeks ago, took a break from drawing full body poses and moved towards portraiture and the composition/proportion and musculature of the face. Super fun! Although she was a pleasant lady, she had the most stern expression on her face the entire period.

Corky, 2011: I was feeling nostalgic and decided to draw me some Corky, the Guar companion that you can obtain at some point through The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. One of my favorite games ever! Digital, PaintToolSAI
"Graham: Looking to the sky", 2012: Very briefly I was part of a kickstarter project known as “Firefly” to do some concept art and sketches for the developing team who was making the short-film. Very Wall-E type of little guy here, he’s an outdated coffee-making robot who yearns to soar into outer space. The project’s color palette was inspired by the show Breaking Bad.
