My character, Sharon, shows off her new necklace. Its a steam punk game with flying ships and magic and tech. Lots of fun! Sharon is a doctor. She just graduated from med school and she has fire magic, telekinesis, and can fly. She found her new necklace after joining her friend Ed on a secret mission to take her mind off of the fact that she accidentally got her parents kidnapped.
So I realized that I may be doing the Hawkeye Initiative wrong. I think we are supposed to be drawing a good looking male attempting to pose like a female super hero in her costume. Its supposed to look ridiculous and not good at all. So here is my 4th attempt. Still not very ridiculous looking, but I’ll keep trying.
here is the original on the Hawkeye Initiative.
Hey there! sorry for the lack of posting. I just go back from Big Sur. Its so beautiful out there! Here is Knick enjoying his private beach.
Anyway, I’ve been working on my portfolio again cuz I’m sick of my current job. So I found this wonderful set of tutorials for Blender 3D ( a free 3D modeling and animation program. Thank you Blender!) and they are totally awesome! Its like taking a college class. Its called “Blender 3D Design Course” by Neal Hirsig. I’m on lesson 5 now. And here is some proof that I’ve been working!
I know they suck, but I’m just getting started again and I’m still learning how to use the tools. I’m hoping to have some portfolio worthy stuff by the end of this year.
an update on the Hawkeye project:
I’m not sure who this chick is, but that is the most ridiculous pose I have yet seen! Here is the original, on the Hawkeye Initiative.
So I’ve been trying to write this post for weeks but I keep getting interrupted. Anyway, my dance teacher, Amity, asked me to paint the door to her studio! So I made a design in Illustrator and projected it onto some newsprint and traced it and cut it out.
I used thread to secure parts like the center of the O.
Note to self, newsprint makes a horrible stencil. I used the newsprint for the background and the drop shadow on the letters. Then I decided it wasn’t good enough and threw it away. (the stencil). So I projected again onto foam core, using the newsprint cut outs to get the right size.
But I was slightly off, and the foam core was at an angle cuz it was leaning against the back of a chair when I was tracing. So the K fit pretty well, but KEEP was too wide, and RAQ-ON wasn’t even close! So I threw the foam core away and decided to just paint the gold letters on, since I could just follow the drop shadow. Then I couldn’t find my gold paint! So a project that should have taken an hour has now taken 4 weeks to complete. Welcome to my life.
But it looks pretty good now that its done.
So, in an attempt to get my portfolio rolling, I’ve asked friends to request drawings and paintings. My dear husband has requested that I do a submission for the Hawkeye Initiative.
Basically, you look through your comic book collection and find impossible or silly poses, mostly by female characters, and then draw Hawkeye in the impossible pose. (Hawkeye is the “evil” archer in the recent and awesome Avengers movie)
He then requested that I do several of these and put them on Magic cards.
and so, the project progresses. Thanks honey!
