Dual Images

Our first painting assignment of the new semester was to create two images that were opposites in nature.

"Each image should present an environment and atmosphere in opposition to its companion. Think about polarities. Consider the quality or qualities of each polarity in terms of inherent, distinctive characteristics. These can be, among other things, physical, emotional, intellectual."

For mine, I used a sort of ambiguous idea; basically, where you go when you are born (a nursery) versus where you go when you die (a graveyard). Whether or not anyone viewing these pieces picks up on that intended message is really no matter, because regardless, a baby's room and a graveyard are pretty different from one another. A majority of the people I showed this to found it quite humorous in a certain respect, haha.

I really dislike the lantern on this graveyard piece. I think the fog came out okaaay, considering it's really my first time ever trying to paint fog. I could have probably done more with it but hopefully it gives a good enough feeling of atmosphere.

Pink Panther Walk Cycle

Here is my Pink Panther walk cycle animation. I think I should have brought out the arm more before it swings backwards, but it's still alright. Ah, and the tail is just...whatever. It seemed to me as though everyone had no idea what they were doing with the tail.

For our layout class we had to depict a mother in any manner as long as it was done so in a positive light. The whole assignment sprung from our professor having recently lost his mother, so I suppose he just wanted to pay an homage to motherhood. They weren't needed to be completely finalized and amazing pieces of art, this was more to be taken as a warm-up/challenge, which is why I didn't spend ages on any one of these. With the second sketch I wanted to color it, so I did that in 45 minutes or so and added a texture.
