So, here's my thesis project from AAU.  It's no masterpiece by far, and I'm still calling it a work in progress because it's only half as good as I want it to be, but for now I'm just letting it be and I won't do any more work on it.  I'm moving on to start some new animations!  I learned so much working on this film, with each new piece I do I feel my skills increasing exponentially!  I do hope you enjoy the short.  I think the foundation is all there, I just would have liked to improve the lighting and animation a lot more.  Perhaps someday I will.


About a week ago I thought I'd draw a new art print for my etsy shop, so I sketched a panda!  I used to draw guys like this one all the time when I worked drawing caricatures art the San Diego zoo.  A lot of times I worked right next to the panda enclosure. 

Sometimes I draw freehand directly into Photoshop using a tablet, but a lot of times I do a pencil sketch first, then scan that in to use as a guide.

I've been focusing a lot on color and shapes lately, trying to get a nice contrast and pop with each piece!
I love seeing the finished product, all framed and ready to be hung on the wall!  If you'd like to own this print, I've got it up for sale in my etsy shop:
