Photo Booth Outtakes

Fall quarter at SCAD is over and the holiday festivities are nigh. In reflection of the good times, I bring you some photo reference that didn't quite make the cut. They were just too awesome.

Posing as a maestro for a superhero project.
Posing as a distressed civilian for the same project.
Posing as a chameleon for a chimera self-portrait project.
Another chameleon pose.
And one more chameleon pose.

The Photo Booth program is a great way to collect reference on the fly because you can see yourself as you take a timed photo. The quality isn't so hot, but the photos are great to use when in the conceptual stage for an illustration. In the end, the best person to model the pose you have in mind is yourself.

More Sketches for Drawing for Illustrators

There are less than two weeks left of the quarter at SCAD! I've been doing my best to catch up on my sketchbook assignments for my Drawing for Illustrators class. Here are the latest:

Some lovely houses in the city.


Some copies of work from contemporary masters Jacob Collins and Thomas Reis. I used both mechanical pencil and ballpoint pen for these--a new combination, which I like very much.

A self-portrait foreboding the insanity of finals week.
