Playing with Koi Watercolors

Experimented a bit with my tiny Koi Watercolor sketch travel kit and pentel brush pen. My cottonwood sketchbook holds watercolors really well.

Got some step-by-steps of some fanart I've done with this medium

Digital Life

Live model digital paintings I've done on week 7 in digital life class.
Each one is about 30-45 minutes

My midterm assignment for this class was to pick one theme from his list and do a poster or visual development piece. I chose to do The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. 
The scene I decided on was Edmund confronting the White Witch in her castle.

Various Edmund designs:

Various White Witch designs:

Final outcome:

Image and Idea

 Just some old design homework I've done for Image and Idea class in my 4th term

I had to design a traveling poster for a location I remember from a past childhood memory, so I chose a place in Taiwan I remember fondly as a child.

My other assignment was to redesign a book cover, so I decided on Amy Tan's "The Kitchen God's Wife". I ended up making two covers because my teacher liked both designs.

The first cover symbolizing a part of the book where she compares her luck to buying an expensive fish for her husband only to have him choke on the bone.

The second cover more literally about the character being hidden behind all her good work.

In this class I really had to embrace the idea of simplicity and symbolic images.
