walk cycle!

for animationnnnn

bg tonal

most recent digital painting assignment. It's starting to get difficult painting with all the work we're starting to get this semester, juggling digital painting with animation is especially hard! I'm not sure how this assignment turned out. My last tonal BG from the previous semester was really messy and a bit confused, so this time I was extra careful to keep my selections clean and my light source constant. Heres hoping it pays off!

Had to paint a fish for digital painting class, with Omar Dogan. I did a super shiny goldfish. Painting is really difficult for me, its slow paced and very detail oriented, which is the exact opposite of how I work, pushing these out is a real challenge for me, but I can see an improvement. I practiced during the summer and I plan on continuing! This painting took me a bit longer than I expected but I think I did a good job, looking back at it, I see things I would fix and I'll get around to it closer to the end of the semester. The focus for this assignment were the eyes, scales and fins- I am extremely happy with how the eye turned out! I still need some practice with fins though. Digital painting seems daunting at first, but I'm really determined to do better this year. Next painting I'm gonna use more midtones, I think I could have really made this one better by not going too fast into pure black and white.
