Attack the Block!

I just saw this movie and I am totally in love with it. It's got two things that I love, cool aliens and unconventional heroes.

Watch it if you haven't!

The Oracle

An illustration based on 2112 by Rush, when the man meets the Oracle in his dream.

I had a lot of fun doing this!

Film post!

Aaah so busy!! Most of the stuff I've been working on lately has been for work (which I can't post yet), class assignments, and fanart, so I haven't thought to post most of it here.

But! I can show you two development drawings from my film!

Hope to post again with more of the same soon!

Darrell Sheets

I spent the last two days watching Season 1 of Storage Wars. It may not be the most quality show ever, but its full of great characters! This guy was probably my favorite, so I couldn't help but sketch him.

I've been in a Transformers mood lately, so of course I drew a character I don't think anyone really remembers. To be honest, I don't think Carly did much, other than yell at a Decepticon or two. Still, I always thought her outfit was cute.

Back in the swing of things

Hello everyone! I'm back at school, which means back to being incredibly busy. Hopefully, I will be able to post most of my assignments as I finish them though!

Speaking of which, here's my Character Design assignment for Phil Rynda's class this week. The assignment was a Princess, Prince, and a Villain with a Triangle, Circle, and Square motif.

Film Characters Revisted

I was drawing my film characters from my second year the other night. I wanted to redesign the girl and put them in a bit of a different situation

I can't believe less than a week before I return to Cali!!

Hello everyone!! These are 3 paintings I did as a commission for someone on tumblr! They were really fun to do! They were done with gouache and cut paper on 2.5" x 3.5" paint cards

What I Wore Today

What I Wore Today- August 11th

A.K.A “Oh my gosh Samantha, that marimba player is so cute!”

Ok, technically this is a day late, but I was a little tired after coming home from this last night. My sister and I went to the Drumming Core International World Championship Prelims! And we were actually stupidly excited about it. My high school never had a drum line or color guard so it was insanely cool to see these semi-professional squads! And those were some SUPER colorful costumes and flags

(And my sister is a steel drum player, so she was scoping out all the percussionists)

Odds and Ends

Here's just a small collection of some sketches and things from this summer.

Two thunderbird drawings I did as Warm Ups

A goose I did one morning when I saw a bunch of them outside my house. Geese are scary.
A little painting inspired by Jonsi's song "Boy Lilikoi".
This was done for the "Doodlepoops" blog for the "Create a Movie Poster" theme! District 9 is my favorite movie!
And this was Luna Lovegood was a request on my Tumblr.

Hope everyone is having a great summer!!

And today was the debut of my new awesome hipster beret I got while antique shopping last week.

Bug Babies

So, yeah this is technically Homestuck fanart, but I had so much fun doing these I wanted to post them. Basically, I just did my own interpretations of what the Wrigglers would look like, and I tried to turn it into shape practice!

At the Dentist

I had my consultation to get my wisdom teeth pulled. I'll be honest, I'm pretty nervous D:

What I Wore Today

July 3rd

Fun Fact- I love wearing summer dresses and flowy skirts, but if I don't wear leggings... I feel like the dress is shorter than it actually is and everyone can see my butt....

What I Wore Today

More for the experience I had today than the outfit I think :)

Fun Fact! It’s my secret dream to marry a lumberjack. I wear plaid to attract them.

What I Wore Today

June 24 (Posting it a little late)

Co-starring my (not so little) sister! Who somehow became a little business woman when I wasn't looking. Last night we attended a banquet for her entrepreneurship camp, and I think we had slightly different ideas of what "Business Dress" was.

What I Wore Today

A.K.A What I Wore for My Hot Date with Neil Patrick Harris and Stephen Colbert.

Because I got to see a filmed version of Company at a local Arts Theatre today! It was really good! Gotta Love some Sondheim!!

This is a super quick sketch I did afterwords. Not sure what I was thinking with the gradient business.

And before I bid you adieu for this post! I realized I never mentioned where I got the idea to do the What I Wore Today exercise! That would be from miss Tiffany Ford and miss Sophie Diao!!

They are both incredible, so go check them out if you haven't already!!!!

Another Summer Drawing Dump

I'm going to apologize right off the bat for the jumbledness of this post. Just a big mish mash of drawings from the past week or two!

Trying to get back into the swing of drawing from life! So I spent one morning sketching my dogs.
I was watching/listening to Hairspray. I think 60's dresses are incredibly cute.

I told myself I would try not to post fanart here too often, but I liked this so I thought I'd throw it in this post. ...Anyone read Homestuck?
A "What I Wore Today" ...from like 5 days ago.
And finally, some Squidboy stuff. Some sketches and two paintings!

Sorry for the overall randomness of this post! Hope everyone is having a great summer!

Sketches from movies

Nope, not film stuff!

These are pretty old, from last semester, but I was scanning some stuff from my sketchbooks and I thought I would post these!

Mostly just me foolin' around while watching Harry Potter movies and Sweeney Todd. I don't necessarily love these, but I thought some of them came out kinda fun.

And these are some studies from District 9 (Loove that movie)

Hopefully next update will be film info!
