Vectors are cool and I like them.

I'm starting to get busy with school, but that also means I'm actually starting to get my stuff together and I'm producing more artwork.

As I'm sure you've all noticed, I'm totally into Illustrator right now. It just so happens that I'm in an Illustrator class. So I present to you, my first Illustrator assignment.

Our assignment was to make a face using the pen tool and what have you. Most people traced pictures, but I drew another cute little character.

This one, I took inspiration from vintage style and colors. I really like using limited palettes, the kind you see a lot in vintage colors.

By the way, I did not make that texture in the background, it's one that came with the program.

3D Under the Sea!

This is my first assignment in my Advanced Photoshop.

While working with the red channel you can offset and inset different parts of a flat image and create the 3D look. You need 3D glasses to look at it correctly though, otherwise it looks weird.

I composited this image with multiple images. I cropped out each fish, and the squids and the foreground coral reef, and pasted them all into the under the sea image.

I don't own any of the images used in this piece.

Fun playing games!

So, I don't really show any work that I've doing from my Illustration job, and since I've been busy with school starting up, I thought I would show you all a sample of some games that I did.

These games were for a Charter High School, and it was a lot of fun because I got to design a lot of the stuff based on what their school looked like, so it's really unique to this school.

Go here to play the games, (they're pretty easy) : School Games!

A while ago I also did a game for Pima Public Library. These games are isometric and pixel based. This was the first time I really worked with that kind of artwork, it's very technical. I feel I could have done better but I'll show it to you anyway.

Keep in mind, this game is for little kids: Library Games!
