Spring Semester

...Is wonderful so far! It's a shame Columbus is so far from home (I live in New York state.) but, I'm more than happy to be back with my friends and instructors! Animation 1 class is fantastic and I've only had one class thus far. My next class is tomorrow and I'm pumped! Our first assignment is making a flip-book that has to do with water. I'm already finished. I'll try to upload it somehow after it's graded. No backgrounds this week. Just a quick sketch of a merman.

All for now see you next week! ~Laura

background speedpaint

As I said in my previous post, I was working on backgrounds next. Here is a 1 hour speed-paint I did today. :
  I am posting this early because I'll be on the road Sunday and classes start on Tuesday, so I won't have much time to upload next week. Critiques welcome! I know the rocks look a little funky and it really lacks contrast. Welp. ~Laura

Here's a little something I did:
I kept part of the sketch underneath, but I might upload a different, cleaner version later. I think I'm getting the hang of this Photoshop stuff. Next up: backgrounds! Hopefully...

Yeah, got a nasty Winter cold. Ugh. Gimme some dayquil.

Here's a smilodon (sabre tooth) that shares the same illness as me.:
