The Map of Arden

What a Week!

So, I've had quite a bit of work due this week, thought I'd post what I've been up to in my Perspective class!

Map and Swatches

The map is a bit sloppy, but it still conveys my basic idea. Let me know what you guys think!

A More Literal Me.

This was actually easier than I thought, though my crazy, wavy hair needs serious help.
The thing that I discovered while doing this is that I have ZERO brushes in Illustrator, which is why I couldn't exactly use a nice ink stroke or something to get the details of the hair.

Of course it is also quite possible that, due to my complete lack of knowledge in this program, I missed it entirely.

Huzzah for feeling totally dumb.

P.S. - I love hats in case you couldn't guess that. Yay hats!

This was the final for Descriptive Drawing which I had in Spring '10. It was rendered in colored pencil.

Too Many Self-Portraits

Descriptive Drawing, Spring 2010. Colored pencil

This actually turned out looking pretty good when I ran it through photoshop, though it doesn't look that great in reality. It still needs a lot of work and practice, but I figured I'd post it anyway.

Ever Have Dreams Where You're Flying?

 Descriptive Drawing; Spring 2010
The rules for the project were that you must have a reflective surface, and you must have an image that tells a story. Yay for storytelling! I must say that this is probably my most favorite creation thus far in my education.

SPOOK, Get Down!

First project for Descriptive Drawing; Spring 2010.

This is a drawing I did of my cat Spook. He's hairless if you hadn't already noticed. I plan on darkening the contour lines in the background, but since I don't have time to do that I just posted what it currently looks like.

Self Portrait

An aviator-esque self portrait I did in my first life drawing class in Spring 2008.

The paper I used was actually a really light blue toned paper, but even with photoshop I couldn't get it to look quite right, so just imagine it as a pretty colored paper instead.

Map Ideas for Project 1

So, I know this isn't exaclty a map, but I think if you organize various symbols in the same way it could have a really cool effect with the images getting smaller and smaller on the way down.

The color wheel is KINDA like a map right? I has layers and various levels...

October constellation map! :D

Map of space.

A really aweome and intricate map of the Chakras.
     Sorry I'm a bit late on this post, I totally missed the announcement, and didn't find out about it until Friday. I'll be posting some of my work up as soon as I can get my most recent stuff touched up a bit and photographed.

     Hope you enjoy.
