Death & Atmospheric Perspective

This is the next step from the thumbnails I posted a couple of weeks ago for the atmospheric assignment in my perspective class - It's a witch (presumably a Mexican woman who is channeling energy from Dia de Los Muertos, hence the make-up), attempting to raise her dead husband from the ground to be with her again. Death & witchcraft - omfg sooooo cute!

It's in graphite, which is a left-handed person's worst nightmare -___- Definitely won't be returning to this medium very often. Anyway, here it is!

Isometric Perspective is Like Being at the Circus

Another assignment I drew for my perspective class - It's in isometric perspective, or "fake" perspective. This is the sort of perspective that is used in video games and mechanical charts / blueprints.

Original Line Drawing:

Value Rendering (which still needs a little work):

perspective is FUN! ...right?

Greek Mythology & Pretty Girls

This is just a little series of cards I made for my Semiotics class - The assignment was to create a sign system using any symbols you liked. All of these nymphs from Greek mythology represent / have a connection with something different about nature. They're watercolor and pencil on watercolor postcards - had a lot of fun making them!

Napaeae - land, mountain valleys & glens

Hyades - rain, storms (also means star cluster)

Anthousai - flowers, specifically hyacinth

Haliae - seas & seashores

Leuce - the underworld, white poplar tree
