Heads is Awesome

So I'm thinking about getting a wall mounting. Some people hang up the horns or heads of animals that they have hunted down/bought at a semi reputable pawn shops. I plan to use the heads of characters I have drawn. I could have Gandalf and Smaug on opposite ends of the room with the dorkfish mounted over the fireplace. Oh! Or Goofy as Mr. Wheeler posed like a bear in one corner of the room. That would be awesome!
More work from Jake Parker's Character Design class.

Darkest Shadows

These are silhouettes for Jake Parker's character design class. We were supposed to come up with thirty for each of two characters from either Charlie and the Chocolate factory or The Hobbit. I chose to do Sauron in dark wizard/necromancer mode and Smaug the dragon. Which one do all you inhabitants of the interwebs like best? Leave a comment.

Aye, aye, Captain!

     Meet Captain Bill Wheedle, retired seaman and master of the secret art of Oar-a-gami. Some people will tell you that it's spelled o-r-i-g-a-m-i and that it is the Chinese art of paper folding. They are simply confused by the similar spelling. Very few people are even aware of the existence of this maritime martial art. It's hard to attract new students when all the local brawlers think you want to teach them to master their minds and bodies through artistic paper folding. The Captain here is one of the last true masters of the style.
     He is also the first assignment for my character design class with Jake Parker. It's pretty exciting.
