Up until recently, sculpture has (unfortunately) been on the artistic back-burner.  However, with new personal choices and much more free time it's come back to the forefront of things that I enjoy.  I'm hoping to keep up with a much more productive schedule this summer and next school year when it comes to 3d illustration, and honestly I don't think it's going to be much of an issue.  
I did do a decent little blip of sculpture work this past school year but I didn't have the time to take pictures before I left CBus and I didn't have room to bring them back home with me.  The last sculpt I did was a little orc bust that turned out pretty well in my opinion and once I get back to school in a few months I will get pictures of him and previous projects posted.  In the mean time though I just finished another bust of an anthro-ferret dude.  A bit Redwall inspired he was a lot of fun to work on and I'm excited to do more busts in the upcoming weeks.  He also has a removable hat because he's just that cool.

Forest Lawn

 Spent most of my afternoon out at Forest Lawn today sketching a lot of what was around.  The one thing I love about cemeteries is the wide variety of subjects- figures, drapes, architecture, trees, and the occasional animal.

Illustration Final

Ok, well this wasn't my only final but it held the most weight in my mind and turned out pretty well (one of those rarities where you're pleasantly surprised by it).  The assignment itself was very open ended- essentially we were told to turn it into our dream project.  As a result my brain went for the obvious mash of awesome movies and oil paints.  The final decision on my front was to do a mural for a movie theater (we had to have a practical application somewhere) of science fiction through the ages. 
I determined I wanted to rule out aliens and more organic life forms as I felt it would really get far too complicated and wind up with a very strange clash between organic and industrial shapes.  If I had had more time it would have been a fun challenge but with only a few weeks I wanted to keep myself reined in (something I desperately need to improve on).  But I'll shut up and post some progress and final pics of it here.

Just 'finished' a couple of pieces for my Children's Book assignment this year.  I learned a lot from them even if I'm not entirely happy with them.  Namely, I need to work a bit larger (these were approx 12 x 18).  I think I just need more space to have more fluid and less finicky brushwork.  Either way here they are (will be doing the cover this weekend and playing with larger painting size).
