End of Fall Semester

Sorry for the late post, but it's been pretty busy.  So fall semester ended, and it has been a pretty interesting semester.  First off, the school decided to change hosts for our email accounts, so alexandravo@lagunacollege.edu no longer works.  If you wish to contact me, please send your future emails to alexandra.p.vo[at]gmail.com  That would be great.  Thanks and sorry for any inconvenience! 

Anywhat, I ended up enjoying the second part of Western Civilization more than what I thought I would, and I learned a lot too.  

Modeling was frustrating, but at least I know the basics now so I can apply it to my Senior film next year.  Here's the first character model I have ever done.  We also had to rig and skin it as well. It's based off the moon character that I had drawn and sculpted earlier on in the semester.

I finished up a couple more characters for my Dessert Peter Pan project. Here are the ideations for my crocodile design. I decided it would be fun if she was a happy-go-lucky-girl, so her final design was inspired by a strawberry short cake.  I also finished up Tinker Bell.  I decided to go with a fruit cup/ cream puff idea for her design.  Since they go as a set, I thought I would repost the final drawings of the previous characters as well.  I hope you enjoy them. :)

For my final Animal Drawing project, I based it off an old Greek myth.  Instead of a male centaur though, I decided to make it female. She sees Hercules and his wife and becomes jealous, so she decides to kidnap the wife.  Hercules kills her and saves the day. Hooray for Hercules, but poor Nessus.  She just wanted to be loved. :(

Then for layout we drew an multi-plane environment from our workbook. I chose the first scene with the establishing shot of the small French Cafe. It was really difficult working with blue pastel and charcoal though. I'll post a line drawing and then the tonal. :)

That's it for now, I'll post more in a bit on what I've been doing over winter break so far. :) Stay tuned!
