Destroying London with Martian Tech! Good Times!

Last in the series of War of the Worlds Cross-sections (still need to do a cover illustration though), I did the fourth listed menacing technology of the Martians from H.G. Wells novel War of the Worlds, the cylinder (the ships in which the Martians come to Earth). Since H.G. graciously failed to specify the cylinder's size, I took great liberty by making it massive. Bigger is better... except when it involves the near extinction of the human race during the Victorian era. Thankfully bacteria can kill the giant. If you can read any of the text: do! Anyway, as usual, enjoy!

Digital Clothed Figure in perspective assignment

Had an assignment due today for my Digital Clothed Figure Drawing class where we had to do two figures in perspective from picture reference. Here they are.

Thunderbird in-progress

During my last break in Iowa I started work on the Lego version of my cross-section of the MTseven13-14 (aka the Thunderbird). I have built a ship like this. If you search through my older posts not only will you find the cross-section this is based on, but the Lego space jet similar in design. This ship, however, will be much more massive in size. It is to scale to the other Lego space jet. Therefore, when finished the Thunderbird should be a little over 4 feet in length with a 3 foot wingspan and definitely weighing over 25lbs! This should be the largest model I have constructed yet and should be finished before I graduate. I have to work on it when I go home on breaks so it takes some time. The design is purposed a little different than the cross-section drawing. The wings and tail section are shown in one of the pictures as to where they will be placed. They, however are not yet attached as the main fuselage is yet to be built. Be looking forward to this for future in progress photos and its eventual finish!

November Super Post

Here is what I could finish in my allotted time for my cross-section (as I have to present a new design this Tuesday as well for the same class). I am not all that satisfied, but I have to move on and do what time permits.
The rest of this stuff is from my other 2 studio classes. The two images are for Illustration 3. The Hip-Hop is a poster design and the animals are icon designs. Both were done using Adobe Illustrator. The rest is what I have been doing in AAU's experimental class: Digital Clothed Figure Drawing where we use the 21inch Cintiq screens and Photoshop to draw the clothed figure from life. So here are some samples of my work. As usual, hope you enjoy!
