Only Skin

It's been too long since I've even updated this blog with anything of the sort! My "break" is finally over and the first 2 weeks of summer classes have already rolled along. I just finished building my computer and now get to work on video editing and animation at home :D 

There's nothing really to show as of yet, so I decided to post something from my sketchbook instead.

I guess it's creepy o___o
but not really. The idea came after I burnt a tiny bit of skin on my arm from baking cookies and after it started healing...and peeling...thought to myself how weird and cool it would be to be a snake and shed my old skin and start anew.

I can't work on that music video animation thing until I get back from "break." 
So far, I've just been reading. Getting ready to do some sketches tonight.
There will be sketches to share later this week :]

In the meantime, I finished the foam part of Cliff a while ago and never uploaded pictures. 
He looks creepy naked! Gotta skin the little fella!!!


When the heat of morning sends its request, let's take the invitation and step outside.

You Are.

One. More. Week.
Then a short break. Then back to school again.

 Here is a snapshot of the music video I'm working on called "Ask the Dust"
for fun
and for a class assignment


I'm almost done shaving the foam body of Cliff (da deer)

Armature Done and Done

Wow! It's been a while since I've posted something.


I will replace this post with something more excited sooooon....because I left the photos I was going to post of Cliff (the deer) at home. So whenever I get around to importing those photos, they will be up here! 

<3 Cat


Meet Cliff! He's gonna be a movin'

If you don't know what Cliff looks like, check out my earlier posts. He's the deer with dragonfly wings! The next step after rigging the armature is to build the body, which I'm doing with squishy foam...there's a more technical name for the material, but I don't remember it now.

I have Cliff's story constructed more. It's gonna be a long exciting summer project :D

Gonna Git Sum New Blog


Updated News: I'm starting a new blog on tumblr with a few friends! Although I have this blog, it will be nice to also have one on tumblr and connect with more people. I will still update this blog with personal projects of my own. The tumblr blog will mostly be sketches and such while this one will be more personalized....

Here is something from my sketchbook. It's my portion of the header for the future tumblr blog. I'm starting to do more Asian influenced art styles. For some reason, there was a time in my life where I was trying to avoid Asian art o____o - but now I'm excited to do some and I really enjoy it!

I will post the link to tumblr when it is made ^___^

Good day you have for you!!!

Making me a puppet.

My teacher Sean Burns helped me out by giving me an armature kit his buddy manufacturers. I have to do it justice now, so here's to progress!!!

Here are drawings of my wittle creature.  

Here is the armature kit I get to use! 

Here's an environment reference drawing made for da creature!

Will You Be My Friend, Charlie Kaufman?


"Synecdoche, New York."
There are a lot of favorite lines in this movie I want to sketch. I will do that sometime :]
